Today we wanted to share a cute idea for organizing your kitchen spices. With every new recipe we end up collecting a new spice or two. Having all these options available is perfect for adventurous cooking but it can leave your kitchen cabinets looking cluttered! We decided to make our new spice storage magnetic so it could adhere to the side of a refrigerator, and we found these cute clear containers so you can easily see how much of each spice you have on hand. Here's a before + after comparison. Magnetic Spice Storage
Morning, everyone! Claire here, with a weekend project that’s perfect for all of you who are gearing up for lots of holiday cooking. Remember two weeks ago when I asked for your opinion on which hanging herb garden you liked best?

If you’re already familiar with magic decal coating paper then please excuse my tardy excitement, though for everyone else who is just getting to the party now too, feel free to start throwing the streamers! My recently aquired assortment of SLOM jars from IKEA were awaiting some DIY craftiness and seemed the perfect victims candidates for my first magic decal experiment.
Wood Cutting Boards For the longest time, I’ve been wanting to make some thick wood cutting boards for use around the kitchen and to give as gifts. Cutting boards are just about the most useful tool in the kitchen, but store bought or hand crafted wood ones can get pricey quickly. I had this vision in my head of a thick slab of wood with a lot of character that could become a focal point on a table. Over the weekend I created a few of my own wood cutting boards out of a slab found at a local salvage yard. Here’s a look at the trio of wood cutting boards I designed:
