DIY Applique Tote

I absolutely love those inexpensive blank tote bags but I'll be the first to admit that sewing fabric onto them is virtually impossible, especially if you're trying to work with detail images or words. That's when Fabric Fusion saves the day! It's strong and flexible hold makes adding the word "Shine" to this DIY Applique Tote super easy and fun.

Geometric Succulent Wreath

I love crafting with dowels because they are so darn inexpensive. The base of this wreath is one you can easily customize to your personal tastes or for an upcoming holiday. With succulents being just as hot as geometric designs in the DIY world it seemed a good idea to put the two together for one fabulous all seasons wreath!

Wooden Front Door Organizer

If I don't have some place to put something the very moment I walk in the front door, I'm going to lose it. The number of hours I've spent searching for my purse, or keys, or sunglasses might very well astound you. It didn't take long for me to figure out I needed an organizer of sorts and I purchased a set of drawers and a coat rack that have served me well through the years. 

But now that Rob and I are sharing a home it isn't working out quite as well and since our new space can be a bit awkward we're rocking the drawers and coat rack on different walls so things are spread out. I decided to take ready cut boards from the hardware store to make a new wall organizer that would meet our specific needs. We now have an area just for our mail (which seems to get lost constantly), two sets of keys, a little shelf for our sunglasses and hooks for our jackets, my purse and our dog leashes. In the end, I'm happier with this decorative yet functional bit of wall decor than I ever would have imagined!
