HOW TO MAKE DUCT TAPE PURSES ::: All Things Thrifty
Over Labor Day weekend, I got to go to my Grandparents’ cabin at Fish Lake, Utah, and it was a BLAST! My Mom, who always plans fun activities for the family, brought the materials to make Duct Tape Purses. After I saw the creativity…I just HAD to show you all how to make them.
: I am a Utah Mom who loves to decorate. My husband Dan and I are partners in crime when it comes to the projects you see on this site. We have four amazing kiddos that keep us on our toes. Over the past two years, we have enjoyed our first home where we have been busy embellishing it to our tastes. All Things Thrifty is the place where I document that journey. I hope you enjoy it!

Before I was a mountain biking, minivan driving, wardrobe refashioning, public school advocating, church going, marathon training, square-foot gardening, dog owning, kid’s journal creating, mother of four living in the OC, I designed children’s clothes in NYC for a little company that rhymes with Cold Gravy. While finding the time to be creative is harder than ever, I have never felt more creatively fulfilled.This is where I record my creative, active, and crazy family life as a reminder that my talents as a woman, wife and mother go beyond standing up diaper changes and one-handed dinner making.
