There is just something so special about Christmas cards. I know we don't get very many anymore in the digital age. But when we do we need to have somewhere to display them. That's why today I am going to show you a super easy Display for Christmas Cards and Ornaments.
I had this piece of wood that I had previously used as a Halloween decoration but I also wanted to reuse it for Christmas. After all, for anything to survive in my home, it has to be multi-functional. I had painted this piece of wood using chalkboard paint and curated it by covering it with chalk. You can see a tutorial of that process here when I did my holiday signs.
It's September and that means it's my turn to contribute a gift to the Handmade Christmas Gift blog hop. For those of you who are new here, I have gotten together with some blogger friends and we are making one gift per month (or at least we are trying). In this way, we will have 12 handmade gifts by the time December rolls around. In previous months I have made a pillow and a wooden heart.
As I mentioned, this month I get to make a gift and my blogger friends, and of course you all, are invited to copy it or make a variation.
What am I making? Well, because I've been working so hard all year I am going to make a gift for myself. After all a happy blogger is a productive blogger! I'm making a jewelry organizer for earrings.
Disclosure: I was compensated for doing this post with product. However, all the opinions stated here are my own. I only use products I love and would recommend to my viewers.
A few weeks ago I showed you my vintage suitcase makeover, you know the one I found in the basement. The one that was a hot mess. The one that nearly broke my back.
I think that I've kept you in suspense long enough. We are here to answer the question that you have all been wanting an answer to: What's inside the vintage suitcase?
It's Back to School time for some of us, and for some others, well it's next month but that doesn't mean we can relax. No, we still need to get the kids rooms in order and to organize their things. With this in mind, I have teamed up with my blogger friends and come up with some fun ideas to help you all get ready for back to school. Today I will show you how to make a back to school hanging organizer.
Το σχολικό έτος αρχίζει για κάποιους από μας τώρα, και για άλλους τον Σεπτέμβρη, αλλά αυτό δεν σημαίνει ότι μπορούμε να χαλαρώσουμε. Όχι, χρειάζεται να βάλουμε τάξη στα δωμάτια των παιδιών. Με αυτή τη σκέψη, έχω συνεργαστεί με φίλες μπλογκερ να σας δείξουμε μερικές διασκεδαστικές ιδέες για να βοηθήσουν να ετοιμαστείτε για το σχολείο. Η συνεισφορά μου είναι πώς να φτιάξετε έναν κρεμαστό διοργανωτή.
Mother's Day is right around the corner and we all know that this is the most important day of the year! "wink". Everyone is out there buying expensive flowers and candy for their moms. But is that what moms really want for Mother's Day? I have a different idea. I think it should be a day where we show our appreciation for everything our mother has done not by spending money but by doing something special. Maybe we can cook for her or serve her breakfast in bed. (Kids are you reading this?)
Aside from these gestures, there are so many easy, last minute gifts that you can make yourselves if you have a few basic things at home. Today I'm going to show you some last minute DIY Mother's Day gifts.
Η Ημέρα της Μητέρας πλησιάζει και όλοι γνωρίζουμε ότι αυτή είναι η πιο σημαντική μέρα της χρονιάς! Όλοι αγοράζουν ακριβά λουλούδια και γλυκά για τις μαμάδες τους. Αλλά οι μητέρες τι θέλουν πραγματικά για την Ημέρα της Μητέρας; Έχω μια διαφορετική ιδέα. Νομίζω ότι θα πρέπει να είναι μια ημέρα όπου δείχνουμε την εκτίμησή μας για ότι εχει κάνει η μητέρα μας, Όχι ξοδεύοντας χρήματα, αλλά κάνοντας κάτι το ιδιαίτερο. Ίσως μπορούμε να μαγειρέψουμε γι 'αυτήν ή να σερβίρουμε το πρωινό της στο κρεβάτι. (Παιδιά το διαβάζετε αυτό;)
Εκτός από αυτές τις χειρονομίες, υπάρχουν τόσες πολλές εύκολες λύσεις και δώρα της τελευταίας στιγμής που μπορείτε να κάνετε μόνοι σας, αν έχετε μερικά βασικά πράγματα στο σπίτι. Σήμερα πρόκειται να σας δείξω τελευταίας στιγμής DIY (δηλαδή που το κανουμε μόνοι μας) δώρα για την Γιορτή της Μητέρας.
