Toy Boxes

Lately my kids room has been driving me crazy!  TOYS everywhere!! I quickly realized I needed to do something about it, so I made some toy boxes. Well, let me rephrase that....I had the idea and my sweet husband made them!! (Thank You Sky) They turned out just how I pictured them.....
Then It was my turn to doll them up a bit!

Now I can honestly say, when I walk into the room I don't want to pull my hair out anymore!!
Easy project, easy fix to my kids room chaos!!

Gift Idea

So a few days ago I had to put together a little treat for a youth activity that I was involved in and I came up with this idea
As I was putting it together I thought to myself that this would be a really cute gift idea.  Just grab a cheap cookie jar ( I'm sure you can buy one from anywhere) a packet of cookies or two, or maybe even bake some yourself,
and embellish the lid any way you want!! Then I got to thinking that if you really want to go all out, you could grab some of these cookie mixes
and stuff them inside the jar, combine it with a cookie sheet, a cookie scooper, spatula, and anything else that you might need when someone makes cookies! So there you have it.... a super cute and super easy gift idea!

P.S. My DIY Toy Boxes are almost complete!! Can't wait to post those!

Jewelery Hanger

 Do you ever have jewelery just laying around cramping your style?? I sure did. And it was easily resolved by making these cute and easy jewelery hangers. I just grabbed some scrap wood that I had lying around in my garage, a bottle of paint, some scrapbook paper, and some super cheap hooks that I purchased at Wal-Mart. It adds just the right touch to my master bedroom! It might not be perfect, but I love the way it turned out. And thats my 1st "trick" of the week!!
I ended up using a different scrapbook paper, but you get the idea!
