I think we can all safely say that I love to re-use and Upcycle as much as I can. We go through a lot of coffee in our house and we use the large Folgers containers. They are a really nice size and can be easily stacked for holding all sorts of goodies.
- Wash and clean jars.
- Remove labels. (Trick: Soak jars in hot water until the labels become loose. If there is still glue residue, use nail polish remover with acetone to remove.)
- Hot glue the object to the jar lid.
- Spray Paint the lid your favorite color.
Have you always wanted to plant your own planters, hanging baskets, etc? Well i have a three step process for you that will always result in beautiful containers. Just like the ones you see in the garden stores but for much less.
Holy Smokes! Do you know about the Parent Mode for your IPhone or IPad? It allows you to lock your phone or tablet on a specific screen so that your kids can’t get out of it! They can’t even change the volume.
This is a beautiful DIY keepsake to have of your children as they get older. It is really easy to do and the results are awesome. I believe I will be gifting these as Mothers Day presents to the grandmas this year!
- a photo (digital works best) printed out to the size you like

I love a great DIY project and was looking for a way to display all of my fabulous Chloe + Isabel jewelry that I have. A DIY jewelry frame it was! We had found some old frames last summer at garage sales, so I decided to make a jewelry display from one of the larger ones. You could probably make these with smaller frames and so a grouping over a dresser too. That may be my next project!
So what do you need for this project? Not much really. A frame, spray paint, chicken wire or caging, wire cutters, sand paper, staple gun and of course fabulous jewelry to display.
Step 1 – Spray Paint the frame. I did 2 different colors because I wanted to sand off the first layer to leave a vintage look.
Step 2 – Cut the caging to size and attach the caging to the back with a staple gun.
Step 3 – Add jewelry to display. If hanging necklaces I suggest using ‘S’ hooks.
Are you like me and want a whiter, brighter smile? My friends at Whitening Lightening sent me a Dial A Smile Kit to try. I am all about a great DIY and why not for my teeth? I have to say I was impressed with my results. This painless, fast-acting kit offers similar results to a professional in-office dentist, with teeth appearing four to seven shades whiter per 20 minute treatment.
It is really easy to use too! These were the directions for a whiter smile: are the directions to use the Dial A Smile kit.
