Easter Tussie Mussies!

A tussie mussie filled with sweets and small gifts is a wonderful gift for a special gift at Easter.   These make simple decorations for your home during the Easter season!  This month the design teams of Altered Pages and Robin's Nest are cross promoting products.  My tussie mussies are made using Robin's Nests paper and dew drops.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
