How to make a business cards and craft fair packaging!


It was only a matter of time before I posted a funny cat video…


The Frugal Crafter Blog

Hi friends! I just realized that with all of the internet content I have posted over the years I have not shared a single cat video! I am definitely not doing my fair share. Also my crafts have been kinda spendy lately so I decided I would remedy both of those issues with today’s video.


National Hairball Awareness Day is this Friday April 24th and it is meant to remind you how proper grooming of your cat can help prevent hairballs which are yucky and stressful for your cats. If my silly video makes you remember to brush your cats then mission accomplished! If you need a brush check out the complete line of deShedding products from FURminator. You will find the perfect one for your pet along with other grooming essentials.


I want to thank the folks at FURminator for sponsoring this video and for caring so much about…

For a perfect weekend breakfast, try these easy, golden brown waffles. Our superstar vanilla bean paste and a drizzle of vanilla syrup make them fabulous!

Homemade Biscoff (Speculoos) Spread / Pâte à Tartiner Maison aux Speculoos

Homemade Biscoff (Speculoos) Spread / Pâte à Tartiner Maison aux Speculoos

Buttercream & Chantilly

Biscoff Spread 4

Descendez pour la version française.

I had a plan. And that plan involved Biscoff (Speculoos) Spread.  But I wasn’t feeling like buying some, I decided to make my own. Part because I’m broke and part because I’m lazy and I didn’t wanted to get out of my flat.  These are some of the main reasons that brought  me to cooking and baking. There was a time in my life when going out to any kind of restaurant, even McDonald’s wasn’t an option and eating anything else than instant chinese noodles for lunch and dinner wasn’t really an option as well.

Biscoff Spread 8

This is when I truly started cooking. It was cheaper. And my life got better.  But it was too late  I got hooked.  I am still amazed about all the things that you can do by yourself. Sometimes it’s just about trying , even though you know that you can…

I need more markers like a hole in the head…


The Frugal Crafter Blog

Hi friends, let me tell you about the markers I just got! (collective groan) OK I have a lot of markers, they’re like potato chips, you can’t have just one. These markers are unique. They are liquid chalk markers by CraftyCroc. They wash right off non-porous surfaces with a wet rag but they hold tight to painted surfaces (I used them in a children’s craft class to decorate the trinket boxes I shared on the blog yesterday.) They are juicy and vibrant and have reversible nibs (bullet and chisel) and I am having a ball with them, in fact I used them on the tile of a scrapbook page I hope to share this weekend. And, I think they might just be my perfect white ink; matte, opaque and quick drying. I have had trouble with white inkpads not drying and needing to be heat set. In these cards I…
