Sock Monsters ... what a great craft to do with kids. It teaches sewing & recycling, it helps develope their imagination & creativity. Write a play, story or puppet show to go along with them. Add "wings" and a spray bottle of "Monster-B-Gone"--- water with a few drops of any good essential oil added; and give as a bedtime "Guardian Monster Protector"
Don't throw your odd socks away transform them into sock monsters!
Take something you really love: a letter, envelope, photograph, a ticket stub... anything - to a printing place like Kinkos and have them blow it up for you to hang as art. An old recipe from Grandma would be great for the kitchen! Love this idea!
replace the fake drawer in front of the kitchen sink with a paper towel holder!
while on a trip, send yourself a postcard every day from where ever you are and write what you did that day on it...then bind them when you return to have a journal of your trip -- complete with photos, stamps, and a run-down of each day's events!
DIY Picture Tiles - modge podge photo print outs from your computer onto tiles from the home store. First used Picasa or other editor to crop your picture into a square, then resize to fit your tile. Print out, modge podge back of photo, lay on tile, using a hard edge to smooth all air bubbles. Then modge podge over the top and sides to seal. Can be artistic with swirls as you modge podge the surface. Let dry, sand the edges if the paper hangs over, then hang with double sided tape or plate hanger, or superglue a picture hanger to the back to hang with a nail.

GOOD TO KNOW: a great tip for making a wreath: go to the plumbing department at Lowes and grab a six foot long piece of foam tubing for $.97!! snip the length you want and duct tape the ends together. Foam ones are SO expensive!
Hand planters! Fill old work gloves with cement, let harden and cut away gloves. Very cool!
