Use It Tuesday - Blue Jeans

My younger son can't seem to wear jeans without ripping a hole in one knee. I don't understand, seriously. But I DO remember my mom saying the same thing about my older brother. So maybe it's genetic?
So, what is a mom to do with holey-jeans? Cut them into shorts and use the remnants for something creative!

So maybe I won't give him a hard time when he does this again. This is kinda cute!

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I only started stamping in January so I am fairly new to the blog circuit. I just discovered you from the Paper Punch Addiction blog and I am in love with your style. I just spent the last hour browsing through a bunch of your posts (even downloaded the time management book you suggested (ha!) and subscribed to the money saving mom feed. Thank you thank you thank you. So happy to have found you!
