Tuesday Tip/Tutorial - Garage Sale Tracker/Sharpie Art

Garage Sale TrackerToday's tip is for all you garage sale fiends who are up at the crack of dawn scoring the neighborhood for "the one". I don't know what "the one" is, that's what everyone says out here about garage saleing. Wait, spellcheck doesn't recognize "saleing", is it "selling"? See, I don't know.

Anyhoo, Garage Sales Tracker takes the guesswork out for both sellers and buyers, by offering individuals the ability to advertise garage sales on the Internet. They feature tools that allow prospective buyers to more easily find garage sales and increased visibility for sellers.

Sharpie plateNow, for the tutorial part and perfect for Father's Day; bypass the pottery painting store and dig out those Sharpies. I discovered this over on Everyday Celebrating, and I can't wait to do this with the boys. Simply take a oven-proof porcelain piece like a plate or a mug, draw your design directly on the item with Sharpies, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Load up on pieces from your local Dollar Store and you'll be covered for Christmas this year!
