Home Storage Solutions 101: Ideas And Organization Tips sail away with me! | Diaper Style Memoirs remember my DIY sailing party invite post? one of our lovely readers asked for some invite ideas and i was more than happy to help. she wanted something easy, fun and creative. i came up with these! and then i got a few more party ideas that i thought you would like as well. so i decided to throw a little sailing soiree for the kids. a fun way to kick off the first day of summer. since we weren’t celebrating any special occasion i tried to keep the spending to a minimum. and i am proud to report that the party cost me $20. that’s all! without resorting to extreme couponing :) i used my first DIY party tip – use paper! i utilized old cardboard boxes, craft paper, old newspapers and tissue paper. for the chairs, i made banners with my sailors’ names and hung paper mache fish, sailing cutouts and Sweedish Fish to decorate. Sasha was not as cooperative as Nick. this is the best portrait shot i could get of her. the party was a blast! images © diaper style memoirs

Craft Cart and a Craft Room Tour! - The Country Chic Cottage I wanted to share the craft cart I added to my craft room along with a new video tour of my entire space. It has been a year since I showed the place I work everyday and I thought y’all might be interested to see the changes. You can also see more than 25 spaces below that will inspire you to have you very own space for creating the things you love. I have wanted one of these carts from Ikea for a long, long time. We recently had a store open in Memphis so I was able to make the trek to get the cart and add it to my space. I used my Silhouette to cut vinyl for the front. Each layer of the cart contains mostly things I use daily. I did reserve the bottom for incoming projects that have not been completed yet. Want to see the rest of my space?

There are over 25 great craft rooms and workspaces to tour below.

Emily Ley | Joy & Simplicity IHeart Organizing beachcomber: seaside style I think this gorgeous seaside home has been around the internet for a few years now 'cause I've admired this bedroom for a while. This weekend I was happy to come across a bit more of this place on a Danish website. I'm not sure where it, it does look Scandinavian though, don't you think? It has such a relaxing feeling with the fresh white interior, soft blues, the light charcoal wooden exterior and a few nautical touches. I want to move in! Could you see yourself living here? via

Framed Skeleton Keys Instead of paying $99 for framed skeleton keys, Angie from The Country Chic Cottage suggests stalking secondhand stores to make these beauties at a fraction of the cost. A mere fraction of the cost. Like $7 for two instead of $200! Angie pulled it off by pairing a set of reproduction skeleton keys she found at the flea market with thrift store frames. I love how they came out! Angie was inspired by the Key Shadow Box Collection from Restoration Hardware. Check out Angie’s DIY wall art at The Country Chic Cottage.
