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.
School Supplies Cake: By the time December comes around we have run out of a lot of supplies. This would be such a fun gift!
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.
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!
"A Promise" | Loch Lomond, Scotland • "An early morning drive around Loch Lomond revealed a glimpse of the incredible beauty of the region. Coupled with a blood red sunrise and low lying mist, I wished that if there were only more time, I would be able to capture some more of its genteel landscapes. Instead, armed with a map, it was all guess work and a targeted approach in trying to find a location to best make the most of the sunrise. I’m happy to say that on this occasion it was a fruitful mission and we managed to enjoy two wonderful locations during our final landscape shoot of the trip. How often do we seem to experience great light and locations as soon as home beckons? Even the drive down from Ullapool was an exercise in frustration. All the mountains along the route were now covered in snow, the fire grasses thick with frost, the lakes giving off mirror like reflections, and the light glorious. Unfortunately, it was not possible to stop along the way and these beauties had to be experienced without a camera in hand. At the end of the day, I believe this is as it should be. Scotland showing itself at its best, teasing me, making me promise that I should return one day to deepen those scratches that I have made on its surface." by Kah Kit Yoong via 500px.com

Toddler dress tutorial. Would be so pretty with a cardigan! And can use up whatever old cotton shirts I have lying around
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...
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!
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...
i have these same pavers stacked in my garage and this would be a nice way to use them!
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!
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.
denim quilt: this might be the way to use all the denim I have saved to recycle into a project
I have a few pairs of Avery's jeans to patch and this will be way cute!
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.
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.
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!
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
Suitcase beds are really cute, my problem would be finding a good place for it. Especially in a smaller house/apartment, you really can't have a bunch of things like this just lying around. Maybe if one was on top of a bookshelf or cabinet or fridge as decoration and elevated cat bed? I don't know.
Party Planning Ideas
This is suppose to be a DIY bracelet holder... but I actually think I'd make a large one for those STACKS OF CDs I have lying around!!
Light up my Life
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.
A nice gift for teachers the first day of school. It's a TEACHERS FIRST AID KIT: Very simple. I got mini floss organizers at the craft store and made a little label in photoshop Then I filled them with Band-Aids, a hand-sanitizer, treats, and other small school stuff. I was inspired when I was saw this big craft box with school supplies. It is stinkin' cute! Then I filled them with Band -Aids, a hand-sanitizer, treats, and other small school stuff. I was inspired when I was saw this big craft box with school supplies. It is stinkin' cute! I wrapped it up with a tag. (The apple is from the "hello teacher kit" on house of 3). THE NOTE CAN READ: Twas the night before school started, and all through the house. All the kids were stirring, trying to find their new blouse. Their backpacks were hung on their doorknobs with care, In hopes that I'd wake up in time to do their hair. I want to be nestled, all snug in my bed, But I'm glad I stayed up and made teacher gifts instead. Because teachers need kuddos and treats that bring cheer, And I am just hoping we have a good school year!
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.
