Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming.

Try It Tuesday: Recycled Priority Mailer to Magazine Holder

I have been meaning to make a magazine holder for a very long time. I don't know where I first saw it, but I found this tutorial from Pink and Polka Dot for this:

 

Now she used Amy Butler Fabric. I used a cheap-O $1.00 roll of wrapping paper (I would highly recommend stepping it up and not using cheap wrapping paper, spend the extra dollar).

She used a glue gun and I opted for the more traditional Mod Podge route, because truth be told, I hate glue guns. What kind of freaky crafter doesn't like a glue gun?


I followed the directions and had this one done in less then twenty minutes. 
Super easy, I just don't know why I waited so long.

Check it out organized magazines!


So next time you have an empty Priority Mail box try this out.
