Today's Feature of the Day is fun craft that also has a purpose. I think these Funny Mini Scarecrows by Wesens-Art are just adorable. They do not look like traditional fall scarecrows, but their sweet faces and ribbons keep the birds from eating her granddaughters flowers. Be sure to stop over to Wesens-Art to see how she made her mini scarecrows. Thank you so much Wesens-Art for linking up this great craft to Dare to Share!
This has been a season of firsts. Earlier in the summer I made strawberry jam for the first time, because we had picked several pounds of strawberries. This week I tried my hand at pickles, because I have picked 8-10 cucumbers in the last two weeks. .
Today's feature is one that you can have fun making and eating. Teri from The Freshman Cook shared a tutorial on how to make Chrysanthemum Cake Pops, which are a mix of cake, chocolate, nuts and popcorn. Yum! I love the mix of sweet and salty together. These would be great to serve at a garden party, baby shower, or just because. Thank you so much Teri for sharing your yummy cake pops on Dare to Share!
Disclosure: I am a Purex Insider. I was not compensated for this post, but I will be entered in a giveaway for a gift card for sharing the promotion.
I have posted before about my love of the Target cartwheel app. I also love using Purex on my family's laundry. Now through August 30th, you can save 10% off Purex with Cartwheel, which makes me very happy.
If you are not familiar with Cartwheel, it is an app that you can access through Target.com online, or through your smart phone. There you can download a lot of extra savings that can be used in addition to Target store coupons and manufacturer coupons. Once you have selected your savings either print out, or show the special barcode on your phone to the cashier. It is that easy! The more you use the app, the more savings your can earn. I have already saved about $100 using the app.
