Anyone else wake up at 3:00am and suddenly remember all of the things they forgot to do? Why can I never remember during the day? I decided that I needed a cute little place to jot down my to do list and came up with this: I have been working on re-organizing my kitchen this month and it's amazing how many items I have found for crafting!
Unique frames, vino, and visual organization are a few of my passions, so spotting a bulletin board combining all three got my wheels spinning. Frat-tastic? It has the potential to be, but in the right frame — something unusual but not too loud or ornate — and in the right setting — a wall without much visual clutter —it could be a witty way of organizing the lists of "to do's" or "to try's" (wines) that inevitably end up cluttering the fridge.
My sister Christy came up with this super easy idea—and I love it.
Inspired by CB2's bamboo bath mat I’m evidently on a hot-glue kick lately.
Before cleaning buttons, it is essential to know what material the button is made of, as well as its construction. Also, it is best to have the proper tools or cleaning materials for the job in order to avoid damaging the button.
Gonna show you how to make these, because there's still enough time before Valentine's day, and also Heather from Dollar Store Crafts is having a link party and all you need to make these is crepe paper streamers that the Dollar Store sells in packs of two. No glue, no tape, none of that nonsense, just crepe paper and opposable thumbs. When I was about ten years old, we had our village's first summer festival, where one girl from the local primary school got to be the carnival queen.
A hoodie is not just a hoodie.

Updated 10/1/12- I have revised this pattern and reposted the how to here . As a family, we kind of obsessively like our rice pillows and firmly believe it's one of those small things that greatly improve our quality of life.
These are fun and easy to make (no sewing involved) and look great as storage containers on childrens' shelves or desks. I also decided to make one for myself for sewing pattern storage using the Alexander Henry "Perfect Pattern" print (I love this fabric - such a simple yet genius design!). I'd seen the fabric in various online shops but it sells out quickly so I was really happy to find that Tessuti now has some both in-store and online.
P.S.- Be ECO and look CHIC-O! I’m excited to announce I’ve partnered with DASANI to create a limited-edition line of green hats in celebration of the new PlantBottle™ which is 100 % recyclable made from up to 30 % plant-based materials. The Green hat ( green like the caps on the new bottle ) is made out of everyday materials – sweatpants, zipper from a hoodie and buttons!
My latest quickie DIY project: a birthday card with a tiny bunting of miniature flags. If you want to try one, here's how to make it.
