Valentine Storage Jars

After-Christmas-blues getting you down? Well, Valentine's Day is coming up, so if you need a little pick-me-up from the January blahs, I suggest doing a Valentine craft, like this cute one made from baby food jars by Courtney of Crafts by Courtney.

Easy, Busy Fun for Kids from a Box

Katie from The Casual Craftlete shares a cute repurposing project that is inexpensive and will help keep a child busy this summer. Sweet! This one started with the small wooden box that was packaging for one of the toys her daughter got for Christmas. Finding it hard to toss good wood, Katie had saved it.

Chalkboard Window

After finding a pile of gorgeous vintage windows on the side of the road recently, April has been sharing all the ways she's repurposing those windows at House by Hoff.  (I featured one of those transformations here.)  Her latest window project is perfect for a summertime vignette.

Old Art Print to Chalkboard Art

At her blog Lake Girl Paints, Deb shares a project that is perfect for the beginning of summer.   Her friend wanted a "summer bucket list" chalkboard like one featured in an HGTV magazine.  A framed but outdated art print was all Deb needed to make it a reality. Lake Girl Paints chalkboard before
