Quilted Cupcake Episode 43 Show Notes

QuiltedCupcake Podcast Episode 43 is posted on iTunes and Libsyn.  The topic for this week's show is Thrifty, Crafty, Frugal ideas.

Here are some of my recent thrift store finds.  You can click on the pic to make it bigger if you like!

This is the new Elfa wire rack for my coat closet - holds so much!  And, I still have room in the closet for coats, and yarn project bags.  The shoe organizer on the back of the door holds scarfs, hats, dog toys, etc.  And, no, my closet is not usually this clean - I took a picture right after organizing it.

Other links from this episode:

Unique Thrift Store - Many locations in several states, my favorite is in Silver Spring, MD.  Also like Brooklyn Park and Landover Hill

Pinterest - you have to check this out - it's AMAZING!  You can follow my pinboards there - my user name is Quilted Cupcake!

The Meatloaf Bakery in Chicago that serves several different varieties of meatloaf cupcakes - yum!  If anyone's been, please post a comment to let us know how they are.  Chicago's one of my all-time favorite cities!

I'm working on a new tutorial for the Clip Board/Chalkboard - should be posted by Tuesday.

I'll also post photos of the new doll quilts and outfits I've made for my Etsy shop once they're listed.  The little red wagon was great as a photo prop!

went to Pinterest! Even though I'm a little "old" for that site, it is fun, fun, fun! I want to do the wordy nails!

Just listened to your podcast... fun, fun, fun... I love all the thrifty stuff you got. We in Australia have also these stores (we call them Op-Shops ) but the prices are never that cheap. I buy mostly clothes..

Hey Jean! Thanks for the tip on Pinterest. I'm sure we all need another way to waste time on the internet!
