I love my dopp kit! (I also love the phrase "dopp kit" which Joelle and Page just taught me, It's an old fashioned term for a toiletry bag). I think of my dopp kit as a little piece of home that I can carry with me wherever I go.

Why would you settle for photos that just sit there when you can get photos that *spin*? With a few CD jewel cases, you can make a free and E-Z photo frame carousel, a rad DIY photo project from Tiffany Threadgould’s DIY book, ReMake It . It’s a frame-holder that fits 10 photos and delightfully spins around a base just like your favorite childhood ride of yore. Best of all, when one photo starts feeling played out (kinda like your old Eminem CD), you can simply give it a spin for a whole new photo to decorate your desk. Start digging through your CD bin and give your garbage and/or Garbage another go. Make a Sweet Spinny Photo Carousel

Step 1: Cut sponge lengthwise into four equal strips.
