I still do not have my sewing machine. I'm so sad! but I need something to do! I cant just sit around and do nothing lol ha-ha but my two year old does keep me busy, but in the down time I love to do stuff… I was looking at a website for labels… to buy them and they cost 25 dollars for 25 of them… so a dollar a piece plus shipping and handling which was 5 dollars… so total 30 dollars!
ok so I was bored and starting look up how to use the iron on paper that I heard works… so I looked up how much that cost and it was 8 dollars for 5 sheets of paper. ok not to bad… then I found a webpage or like a comment (I really don’t remember what page) that said print right on the fabric using an ink jet printer with freezer paper… by the time I found this out. my hubby already went to work and so I didn’t have the car…. ugh! right? so my head went to thinking! I grabbed my tape, a piece of paper, scissors, cotton fabric, and my printer!
so what I did was taped my cotton to a regular piece of paper. but you have to tape it even no wrinkles on the fabric or your wording will be moved! ok next make your logo on your words page… I used a label helper that is already on the words page! then I took out all the paper out of the ink printer and put the piece of paper with cotton.. now hit print!
I was able to make two designs… now for the not fraying part… I'm gona use mod podge… I don’t have any right now since my last project.. so when I buy some, I will just paint it over and cut a little bit of the edges and no fraying!
all I have to do is just add to my purses or all my other stuff!ok well that’s it for tonight! hope you all had a good day!
ha-ha cool right! I'm excited about it! and saving a lot of money doing this process my self!

OK you gota hear me out ok . . . so I personally use rubbing alcohol every month to disinfect around my house… like corners of the house, windows, were the dogs sleep, I mean every were… its cheap and it doesn’t smell bad for long… and on top of that it wont harm my daughter! we have hard wood floors, carpet, and tile! ( I know we have all types of flooring lol) and we also have painted out living room and kitchen area blue… but you know how you can get lazy cleaning up the floor when there is a little bit of paint spatter… ha-ha well any ways I pour out my rubbing alcohol on the floor and realized that the blue paint came right off… no scrubbing or nothing! well the bigger paint spots you have to leave it on for a little bit longer but it still comes up! I was so amazed by it! my hubby was looking at me like what is wrong with you! ha-ha but o well…I'm very happy and excited I got the paint off the floor!
I also out rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle, and put them in all my bathrooms. Just spray wipe if needed and go! bot to much. I also love to use the spray bottle when one of family members is sick I just spray the couches so the alcohol just kills the germs… so no one else gets the germs.. I also have one near my sink, so it’s a easy grab after cooking with meat or something. its great!
why use rubbing alcohol:
- wont harm your kids, or pets
- Get paint off floor!
- leaves windows and mirrors streak free n clean
- not a bad smell!
I just wanted to let you all know this new thing I found out! I love it ! I even use it on my floor and it gives a nice shine… I just love that it disinfects as well… being a mom is a tough job! I'm always worried about my daughter getting sick or if I'm cleaning enough so she wont get sick! ha-ha but that’s ok rubbing alcohol does everything at once!
Also what I use for my tile is Windex! ha ha it is very cheap and the tile looks amazing when I'm done! nice and shiny! and no annoying streaks!
but that’s it for now!
a little update: I got my laptop back from Dell, I really do not like Dell anymore… I'm thinking about getting a Mac or something else.. I have had so many problems with Dell and I haven't had this laptop for a year yet… so we’ll see… and also about my sewing machine… still haven't gotten it cant wait to get it so I can sew!
but alright! hope you have a good day!
