Here is a simple yet stylish photo frame that can accomodate quite many photos at once. The idea is very simple. Fasten twines on the empty frame and hang photos using clothes pins on them. You can use a frame you bought or a frame you made by yourself.
I wanted to share with you a project from one of my readers who shares with us how to make leaf skeletons. I LOVE this! I have several leafs in various forms displayed in my home and knew I needed to make some of her leaf skeletons to add to my decor. I love how a pattern of leaves can enhance the beauty in your home. So I asked Heather if she would mind sharing her project with you. You can find more great projects from Heather at her blog The Other White House .
When I first saw this craft in Martha Stewart's Living, Kalia was in the womb (kicking away, everyday, all day long... ) I saved the magazine and then added it to her nursery board on Pinterest when I saw it online. I finally sat down to make one (only a year later after first seeing it ;) If only I had realized how easy it was... I am using this for parties from now on!
When your baby outgrows clothes and furniture, sometimes it's hard to find a way to repurpose it. There's always the option of giving it away to friends and family or donating it.

Caz from, A Little Learning For Two , created this fantastic work bench from an unused crib.

With an old weather beaten drawer front I found in a field and some spindles off of a broken crib I tried my hand at making a coat rack. I cut the spindles to make the pegs for the hats to hang on, made pilot holes into the bottoms of all of them, and screwed them into the drawer front. Sanded everything
Two weeks ago, while discussing DIY ideas about our No New Gifts Christmas I mentioned a lovely yarn bowl that I wanted to make. Most of you know how much I value hand work be it just for the sake of mental health and the feeling of accomplishment. In a mostly virtual and fast-paced world, one of the most precious acts is working with your hands to create practical objects that can be touched. So, of course I didn't waste much time and dived happily at the project together with my daughter in the first moment available.

You will need a work area where a little sand and concrete mix or glass shards is not an issue. Make sure you have a small brush and dustpan available at all times. Normally you wait till the end to shatter the lightbulb, but it can happen at any point in this process.
First off – you really can build this thing very cheaply, but to do so you have to recycle, freecycle, and scrounge. If you just go out and buy new everything it will probably cost over $200 – still not bad all in all. This Article is featured in Jan 2010 issue of Birds and Blooms Magazine!
