A Whale of a Tale

Laura's rescue may seem to just be about using a piece of reclaimed wood to make something beautiful, but it's so much more than that! I got sucked into the story of her grandparents' hand-built home (where the wood came from) and her parent's beach house (where the completed piece is going). At Finding Home, Laura is telling the stories and introducing us to a very sentimental and happy whale.

Well, Jacque from The DIY Village has a terrific idea that may help you save fridge space and show off some of that art you are so proud of.

"My sweet and amazing husband surprised me with some pallets out in our garage," says Courtney fondly at Crafts By Courtney. "Who needs flowers when you get a pile of pallets to craft with!" Who indeed? Courtney's first project was to add a little bit of the beach to her Florida home.

Golden Leaf Mobile

"I was swinging my daughter on her swing in our backyard when I noticed the few leaves that had fallen from our tree," says Selene at Restoration Beauty. The leaves captured her imagination, so as soon as they were done swinging, Selene scooped up her daughter and a few of the leaves and got crafty.

Adorable Art for Kids

Here's a delightful little project from Meghan of Our Pinteresting Family. She likes to use the squeezable pouch baby foods when she and the kids are on the go. "They have the colorful twist-off tops on them, and I have been collecting them, hoping to use them for crafts," Meghan tells us.
