    My old bed sheet is so used that the only creativity that comes to me is using it for rags… how creative can that get?

    Nice one Nkem… This is sure useful to ensure a green world.

    Imagine. I've never thought of any of these. The wall art is so cute and the ironing board tip…I think my mum has tried that before. But what I'd definitely try is the tote bag.

    Yea Evita. The tote bag is really trendy and a must try
    Thanks for stopping by
