This would be a cute way to reuse all of the colored pencils I have lying around from years of school supplies.
And a cool way to use
School lunches from around the world info graph! Very cool! This would be a great way to teach nutrition at lunch time, or even something cool to use during a study of another country, etc.
Mohair Mobius Wrap -- Knitspiration. love the colorplay. this would be a good way to use up some of the odds and ends of kidsilk haze i have laying around.
Looking for a way to organize all those markers and colored pencils? Use a bucket storage sleeve! | From Vicky of One Orange Giraffe blog
TO DO: Make my own antique button charm bracelet. I have most of the supplies and selecting the buttons would be a wonderful way to explore my collection!
I have some tiny colored pencils that I would love to use for this, but I can't figure out how to drill the holes in them...
Toddler dress tutorial. Would be so pretty with a cardigan! And can use up whatever old cotton shirts I have lying around
I have purchased five of these machines to use with 4th thru 8th grade beginning sewing students. This machine has shown to be sturdy and all around easy to use with kids. I have sewn many different fabrics and used many different stitches with great success. It is very easy to wind a bobbin and thread. Over the last two years, no complaints at all.
i have these same pavers stacked in my garage and this would be a nice way to use them!
First Day of School Photo from Meaningful Mama - would be so cute to have a beginning of the year and an end of the year shot!
Sewing Projects: A 15 Minute Diaper Clutch - this could be the perfect way to use up some of the extra fabrics I have laying around...
This little card holder is made out of an empty ice cream container and covered with scrapbook paper. It's a cool way to recycle and reuse stuff you may have around the house AND create a great Valentine!
This would be a great use for all those smooth stones I have been picking up over the years! Maybe I'll incorporate some dinosaur bones, too.
The Easy On and Off Dust Ruffle - Hammacher Schlemmer (I think this would be easy to make. Measure all the way around the mattress, double the length around for the fabric for the elastic to ruffle up. Measure from the floor to the box springs and add a couple of inches for the two seams.
I have a few pairs of Avery's jeans to patch and this will be way cute!
Creative storage idea! This would be a great way to recycle toilet paper rolls. :) Again, can be covered in contact paper! Or leftover wrapping paper you have lying around. Any kind of pretty paper. Or any of the new duct tape designs they have out now.
Cheap glass fillable lamps from Target – fill one of them with a bunch of tiny toys that were collected but no longer played with. The other one got filled with old cars that used to be enjoyed all the time. Such a cool way to keep something sentimental around that your child might not actively play with anymore. Imagine the possibilities: legos, polly pockets, colored pencils, rubber erasers...
DIY Multi-Use Kitchen Towels - like this much better than the snap-together roll thing. Also a great use of some fat quarters I have lying around.
This would be a cool way to display my herbs this summer....and keep them all within reach of the sprinkler.
I love weddings
I think I would use black or brown paint. I was just admiring the leaves falling. This would be a cute winside and all year round.
It's officially back-to-school time! So you know what that means.... school supplies!! This is arguably my favorite time of the year (I have a serious obsession with school supplies, I know I'm a dork.) In honor of this time I've put together some essential to always have in your backpack, and they aren't all just supplies.
This is kind of what I have in mind for the basement. But I would use the areas underneath as big cabinets to store all the folding chairs and tables. And there would be monkey bars going out from the front to different areas of the basement, so they can play that "don't touch the floor because there are alligators in the water" game.

How To: Splatter Paint Nails With the Olympic trials in full swing and the 4th of July right around the corner, I decided to get patriotic with my nail art this weekend! I searched for a quick and easy way to wear all 3 colors of the American flag and decided that splatter paint would be the perfect (and easiest) way to do it!
"Don't you just love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils
dots! i have so many of these lying around everywhere from all the things i've made, now i know what to do with them!
Wall Decor- family pictures I have a whole stack of antique windows in my basement! This would be a fabulous way to use them!
I have seen this idea all over pinterest and the internet, but this is the coolest look I have seen for the finished spice rack. I love the way they look on the refrigerator door, it is a great use of unused space, and all of your spices will be at your fingertips, no searching through a cabinet trying to get to the right one. I may have to do this myself.
a place called home
I ran onto this tutorial a few weeks ago. I don't want to forget about it. It looks easy. It would be a fun way to use up some fabric scraps I have laying around. :)
Instrumental version of "A Thousand Years." Love this song. Wish it had been around when we got married. I would have walked down the aisle to this!
