DIY Thrifty Thursday #42

This week has been a little crazy for me. I've got 3 sick boys home from school today. I finished working at the at-home job I've had for about 6 years and started a part time job at my kid's elementary school a few hours a week. I haven't worked out of the home since the summer of 2002 so I'm kind of excited about it! :) I'll still be bloggin' my little heart out finding great deals so stay tuned for those as we get closer to Christmas and Black Friday!

Last week's features are:
How to Package Cupcakes by Kamnco. I LOVE this idea! SO cute and thrifty!
Parmesan Chicken from The Shady Porch I how she cooked the bread crumbs on the chicken.
Scrapbook paper Wall Art by India Pied-a-terre What a great idea to use up scrapbook paper!
Tiered Serving Tray: Life as a Pepin. I like that she made the tiered serving tray herself, very creative.
Fax Leather counter-top by Compulsive in Texas Super unique...and of course THRIFTY!
