I have wasted countless gallon ziplock bags when traveling - just unscrew the lids and put some plastic wrap over the opening then screw the lid back on for a much easier spill solution! (not quite as safe as a plastic bag, but a good idea!
DIY Vintage lace trimmed shorts-- I think I'll do this since I cant find shorts that are long enough to be modest! I can only find really short shorts, or knee length. This can make the ones that are too short a good length, and cute :]
