Hey guys!  I am so glad to share a great post from Angie @ The Country Chic Cottage.  Angie is one of the sweetest people and I have had the pleasure of hanging out with her in person.  Looking forward to hitting the thrift stores with her again soon! 
Angie is also extremely talented and you have to check out some of her great projects like her Sheet Music Letter.
Or her fantastic Burlap Ribbon Pillows – I love these.  I have to agree with her that they are like something you would find at Pottery Barn!
And if you are feeling beachy – you have to hop over and check out her Beach Bash going on now with all kinds of great ideas for you to infuse a little beach feel in your home this summer.

I am so happy to be here on Frugal with a Flourish!!  First I want to say congrats Jess and her family!!  My name is Angie with The Country Chic Cottage -- where I bring farmhouse flair to your home through creative crafts and vintage finds!  I met Jess a couple of months back in real life and let me tell ya she is just as sweet in person as here on her blog!  Can't wait to get together with her again!  Today I am going to show you how to make your own stamp with yarn, glue, and cardboard.  I bet you are a little skeptical huh??  Well, let's get started!!
I made a starfish stamp for my project!  The idea came from Family Fun magazine where they used a pipe cleaner to make name stamps.  So I figured I could use the same idea.  Gather up some cardboard, yard, school glue, and a template.   You don't have to have a template but I wanted my starfish to at least be star shaped! 
Glue your template to the cardboard and place a bead of the glue all the way around your template. 
Lay your yarn down on that glue bead.  And let it dry.
Break out your ink pad!  I am going to make a muslin ribbon strip with my starfish stamp.  So I have a torn piece of fabric.
Cut around your stamp portion.  I learned that this is important through experimentation.  So just do it! :)  Ink up your stamp!
And stamp away!!  I loooove the rustic nature of the yarn stamp!  It gives the starfish more depth I think!
I stamped a few randomly on my torn strip...
And tied it on my little lantern!  Yes the starfish was already in there!  And the green goes well in my bathroom!
So break out your yarn and get to stamping!  Before you go though...head on over to my blog and poke around a bit!  You will find even more tutorials and fast fixes!  I am all about the easy, quick craft!  With three kids, a hubby, a full time job, a blog, an etsy shop and a farm...well there is not a whole lotta time!  I hope y'all will stop by for a visit! Thanks for having me Jess!! ~Angie~

However, with a mobile phone, you will have to be acutely aware of your surroundings.
If you wish to answer a quick question, again, use your Smartphone to go online
and search for that quick answer. Dagar's invention will use quite the same technology.

Its size enables someone to easily make it anywhere they're going, permitting them use of any media anytime they really want. According to the Bangkok Post, there is a major announcement coming from Apple on September 12th, which will probably be its new i - Phone. It could still be demanded by law enforcement or stolen by malicious hackers that gain access to Amazon's systems.
