About Me

I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids.! My husband Tim is a Soldier on Fort Benning. I work for MWR for the Community Recreation Division as an admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing, she is in her 9th season (2017-2018) of being a competitive dancer. It's exhausting but we LOVE it. Cale is starting to REALLY get into sports. He is on a year round wrestling team, and he plays baseball in the spring! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too! On Valentines Day of 2017 we bought our first Travel Trailer. I'll be documenting our travels also on this blog!

Chicken wire frame

This was a fairly cheap and easy project I was pretty surprised when I was finished with it how it wasn't as time consuming as I thought it would be.  I got these white frames from a scrapbooking store that was going out of business for $7 a peice.  Here is the before and after I spray painted them.
 I got the chicken wire from lowes for 2.98 for a 10 foot roll - it would last me through all three of the frames I have.  I was NOT shy on using the staples, I think i have a staple in ever cross section.
 Now that I have it all stapled down....
I can snip off the excess - this is probably the most time consuming part of it all!
 All cleaned up from the stray wires, and I had to add some touch up paint because I scratched it on my cardboard.
 You can use any kind of backing to hang this - mine didn't already have claw clips like I would have liked but I did have these on hand.
 Tied my ribbon to the top and then reinforced with a staple
 I used paperclips to hang the pictures but you could use just about anything.  Even binder clips would be cute!
