Oh Man...Why didn't I think of that !

May 2, 2013

I sit back in amazement at some of the amazing things that I see on the web and think to myself 
" Oh my goodness, why didn't I think of that "
Where on earth does this creativity come from? I am seriously thinking the water.
 I want some. You too? 
Well today I am sharing a few of my collected "Why didn't I think of that" projects with you . Ideas that will inspire you and quite frankly leave you thirsting for more.

Use some glow in the dark spray paint on your outdoor planters for a cool lighted effect at night.
Thought your hot iron was just for your hair...think again. Use it to smooth out ribbon and the hard to reach spots on your shirts.

If you are a painter like me you'll love this one. Prior to painting, apply some glue around your cuticles and nails to get paint off your fingers during cleanup easier.
If you are looking for a way to store and use twine or string here's two brilliant and stylish ideas for you.
