Homemade Decoupage

I remember yesterday (years ago) I was a second grader studying dinosaurs and for the first time ever I had the opportunity to help build a replica of a huge 3 horn. Seriously it was HUGE. One of our PTO moms had this grand idea and knowledge of combining simple ingredients such as chicken wire, newspaper, grey spray paint, glue and water to build a dinosaur as big as I was.

Now because of that experience, along with the memories of my mom, my brother, and I making egg baskets for Easter out of balloons, yarn, glue and water, I was certain that the preschool teachers I was currently working with were wasting money on buying Mod Podge. But I couldn't prove it.

Until the birth of Pinterest ;-)

When Pinterest arrived recipes for this simple remedy started popping up all over the web, which was fantastic being that I was in the middle of a project and desperately needed it. However it made me feel like a fool.


Because I could remember the ingredients but I couldn't remember they were equal parts..........REALLY are you kidding me I can remember the HUGE dinosaur and exactly how to make the Easter baskets but I couldn't remember that EQUAL parts of glue and water kept them together?!

Now, the simplest way to achieve this is to empty a bottle of white Elmer's Glue into an empty glass container that has a lid. Then fill the empty glue bottle up with water and then empty that into the glass container. Place the lid on tightly and shake it shake it, shake it and shake it some more ;-)

That's it!!

I Am Back!

Just when you thought it was over, you turn a corner and see me standing there. Yes I am back and blogging again.....

As I shared in my "final" post, I wasn't following the savings steps I was preaching therefore felt guilty and convicted of being someone I was not....the very thing I hated about blogging all together. However over the past few months I have come to realize, that Prudent Wisdom isn't about practicing what I preach.

Being Prudent is to be careful and practical, a way of practicing common sense....I was reaching too high.

And Wisdom is to utilize knowledge, experience and understanding.....I may not be the wisest of all fools but I do have the ability to think.

Together Prudent Wisdom is nothing more than one carefully traveling through the journeys of life and sharing each experience in the search of understanding. Whether it be through clipping coupons or pinching pennies being prudent is the way I survive.

So here I stand, well actually sit with a k…

I Tweeted in Church


No really it was the silent type so no reason form me to excuse myself or be embarrassed.

However I did blush a little when the quest pastor favorited my tweet.....

Yes you read that right "the quest pastor favorited my tweet"

But did he realize I tweeted while he was preaching?

I am not sure...

Maybe that's why he liked it??

Or maybe, it was his way of letting me know I was busted....

Which brings the question;

Is tweeting in Church considered rude?

What do you think?
