Lana's Podge DIY. I have seen many tutorials on making your own version of Mod Podge that I just had to try it myself.

It's not as expensive to not make me buy it, but for some projects I could use a cheaper version.

Luckily he's old enough now that diaper blowouts are a rarity, however toddler-boredom-turned-general-naughtiness has taken hold where poop-up-the-back-of-your-shirt-and-seeping-down-your-pants-leg used to live.

After one too many dinners out during which I try and fail miserably to entertain the duckling with a dull butter knife and a packet of Splenda, I decided to get wise and create a quick and easy bag that could keep the little guy entertained long enough for me to enjoy a glass of wine. Then I got pregnant (see you in July, wine), but the need to keep our kid out of trouble persists....enter the magnetic activity bag! Be forewarned, this little bag is addictive.

Rather than sitting on top of the fabric like a stiff iron-on transfer, the Ink Effects ink settles in smoothly to the fabric with little distortion of the feel of the fabric. Ink Effects colors blend nicely together, and when I saw my collection of colors, I instantly knew what I wanted to try my hand at. DIY Studded iPhone Case.
