When I make or purchase something I like to make sure it can fit in at least 3 different areas of my home. There are a few reasons for that: I don’t buy as much stuff if it doesn’t fit my criteria, I like to move things around, I like things with dual purposes. Today I’m sharing how to make this DIY Wood Photo Holder. It can hold photos, cards, recipes, quotes, or memos in any room you like.

Creating, documenting, and displaying memories are some of our favorite thing to do. We enjoy spending time together as a family and choose to spend our money on family trips and small weekend adventures. It’s been fun creating lasting memories with our children who still talk about the adventures years later. Sometimes I have a hard time getting photos off the camera and displaying them though. Since kids love seeing photos of themselves I thought it would be fun for them to create a way to display them. These Rock Photo Holders are fun and easy for the kids to make and then pick their favorite photos to display on them.

Sweet Pickled Radishes

Canning always takes me back to thoughts of my childhood. It starts with picking strawberries, beans or other produce from the garden and continues in the kitchen with my mom canning our harvest. They’re such sweet memories. There’s something about canning and preserving your own food that makes it taste better, actually it does taste better because it’s fresh. I received the new Ball Book of Canning and Preserving and just had to try canning the Sweet Pickled Radishes. They taste even better than I though they would.

I live in the desert so it can be torture to be outside in the heat of the day, but the evening hours are wonderful. It’s so pleasant enjoying a meal outside on the covered patio. I like to keep dinners fresh and light on hot days and this Creamy Spinach Artichoke Dip with vegetables makes the perfect appetizer.

Curtains are a great way to add color, texture and design to a room. They can also make a window seem larger and the ceiling feel taller depending on where they are placed. I’ve been hunting for new curtains for 10 months, with no luck. My living room window is small and not centered on the wall, I wanted to add curtains to make the window feel larger and seem centered. I can’t believe what a huge difference it made. Table Cloth Curtains were an inexpensive and easy answer to my problem.

My kids have a thing for decorative duck tape. They love the different styles and colors and are always trying to think of new ways to use it. Zach decided he wanted to make a Duck Tape Tablet Case using the black and white mustache duck tape.

I saw some really cute twist ties at the craft store a while back. I thought they would be simple enough to make and it would be fun to customize them for gift giving and other craft projects. The DIY Twist Ties turned out great and I love the variety of styles and colors.

I was on a local morning show sharing Back to School Organization ideas and Planning Kids Clothes for the Week was and still is my favorite organizing idea to use during the school year. This was one of the ideas I shared about planning your kids clothes for the whole week. By planning for the week or at least the night before, mornings go so much smoother. It’s been a lifesaver at my house.

I saw this framed sea urchin wall art at Pottery Barn and knew I wanted to make something similar for Summer. It’s large, but at a cost of $139 it’s definitely out of my budget. The Framed Sand Dollar Wall Art is my version of this wall art, although it’s much smaller I still like the impact it has when displayed.

I like that I was able to use things I already had to make something similar but on a smaller scale. Because it’s neutral it fits in any color scheme and can be displayed all Summer long.

I struggled with getting my 4th of July decorations out this year. We had such a busy June that I never found the time to decorate the inside of the house, but I did find a little time to at least get the front porch decorated. This Patriotic Star Wreath was fast and easy to make and I love how it turned out.
