Check out the hodge podge of patriotic decor they had at Dollar Tree. I was checking them out and thought about all of the fabulous dollar store crafts I see on Pinterest and other blogs and thought I would try one out.
I’m gonna start by saying that I had the styrofoam wreath so I suppose I cheated a bit but everything else was from there. Keep Reading!

One of my oldest and bestest friends and I decided to pack up and take our babies camping this week. We got back yesterday, and boy am I sunburned! I know, I know, USE SUNBLOCK!!! Which, I did on day one and day three, but on day two I managed to forget it. However, we did manage to remember to put it on the kids so that’s something, right? LOL. The result being that she and I are sunburned and all the Monkeys are perfectly brown. Go figure. LOL. I am glad they aren’t burned too though!
I thought I would right a short post today about camping, since I’m too sore to sit at my keyboard for long. LOL. Anyway, here is my list of random things we MUST take with us next time!

Hello there! Dawn here from With a Side of Thriftiness. I am so glad to have the opportunity to blog here at Crafty Zoo with Monkeys, thank you Kaycee! I would like to take this opportunity to discuss knitting. Yes, I am 30+ and just learning to knit. My husband had bought me a “learning to knit kit” for Valentine’s day. I am ashamed to admit it has been staring at me, begging to be opened. There is no time like the present, right?

Hey Everyone! I thought this week I’d bring you some great new uses for honey! Check them out below and let me know what you think! Do you have any ‘alternative’ uses for honey!?! Well, get to sharing! 😀
Does wonders for your skin and is super easy. Also it keeps for a while! I suggest making less than the recipe calls for because it doesn’t take much to do your facial! 😀
2. Heal wounds, cuts, scrapes and burns!
Yep, you read it correctly! God knew what he was doing when he gave us those sweet honey bees. Honey is a natural antiseptic! 😀 Just put some on your ‘boo boo’ and let it do it’s thing!
3. Energy Shot
Skip the unhealthy stuff and get you a teaspoon of honey before a workout, it will give you the extra boost without the harmful side effects!
4. Get rid of those Nasty Hangovers
I can say I’m glad to be past that point in my life, but if you know someone who isn’t you can give them a little honey on toast or in tea. The fructose helps boost the metabolism of alcohol and get rid of it! Yay!
5. Lose Weight!
If you use honey instead of sugar you’ll save lots of calories! Plus, you’ll get that extra metabolism boost to lift you up a bit! Now, isn’t that sweet! LOL.

Hey Everyone! Here is a great little recipe to make your own hairspray! No more harsh chemicals in your beautiful hair! Plus, it’s way easier to breath when you spray this one! LOL.
Light Lemon Hair Spray
Slice the lemons and cover with water in a pan. Simmer for 1 hour, adding more water as it evaporates. Let cool, then strain. Pour the lemon liquid into a pump spray bottle.
Makes 2 to 3 cups.
Shelf life: About a week refrigerated.

Hey everyone!!! I am a list freak and I have them everywhere. Since I didn’t want to stick 9 million tacks in my beautiful wall (I really love the paint in here!) I decided to make a magnet board. They have all those cute ones, but they are expensive and we all know I’m cheap frugal fiscally responsible! So, here is a little tutorial so you can be fiscally responsible too! LOL.
Let me start by saying, you can easily cover this with some cute material or even scrapbook paper to pretty it up, but I wanted mine to be plain. I plan to keep it covered and don’t want to be bothered with wanting to see said prettiness behind my magnets! 😀 However, I will be making some adorable magnets to hold my non sticky note papers later!
First, pick up a sheet of metal at your local hardware store. It only costs a few dollars and you can get whatever size you’d like. Remember, there will probably be no cutting of it, so get the size you want!!!
Next, take it outside with a hammer, board and a nail. Use the nail to hammer a hole in the metal so that you can hang it. Remember that if you want pretty ribbon, you’ll want to use a large nail so that the hole is bigger. I used a standard nail and some rubber bands.
Finally, use some heavy duty string of some sort to make a way to hang your board. I used a rubber band on each side then tied the ribbon through because my hole wasn’t big enough. It actually worked out well as it managed to look good (yes, I WAS surprised!) and it seems to hold the weight efficiently.

Hey Everyone! We’re back with Thankless Tips and Tricks Thursdays! I hope you are enjoying them! I’d love to hear any ideas you have for them! I’ll gladly do the research and find tips and tricks on whatever subjects you suggest!!!
Today I thought I’d share the recipes for laundry soap and window cleaner. Both work very well. One batch of the laundry soap will literally last for months, and I do 3-5 loads per day!
