Crafties : Scrap Fabric Projects

Good Morning! If you are a fabric hoarder like myself, you've got a few totes here and there jam packed with the tiniest scraps that are simply too cute to just throw away. I've discovered a few craft projects perfect for using up those teeny scraps. Bring some new life to those cute lil' thangs because they are prettier around the home rather in the tote bins!

Roadtrip : Johnson's Ole' Adventure Park. Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Even though this place is closed and run down, the fact that it's still here and dilapidated makes it all the more beautiful. Over in North Western Milwaukee, Wisconsin (Brown Deer), Johnson's Park & Mini Golf was a neighborhood favorite in the 60's & 70's.  The entertainment park was complete with a waterside  go karts and a mini golf course. In the picture is a ceramic T-Rex on the mini golf course, one of the many creatures in the park. Take a peek at the awesome leftovers and visit asap!
