Handmade Washable Lunch Sack

Do you take your lunch to work and wish that you had a cute lunch sack to put it in?

I would take my lunch to work in a plain and boring grocery bag and often times would get holes in them because my fork would poke through the side. I wanted something cute and trendy that would hold up with multiple uses that I could take with me. So I searched online and found this great tutorial here. The tutorial provided great step-by-step photos and instructions. To personalize and make mine a little different I added a fabric ‘C ‘to the front with some rhinestones. I love how it turned out and am excited to take it to work!


Would You “Be Mine” – Valentine Blocks

by Crystal on January 14, 2012

I love wood projects!! There is something therapeutic about cutting wood and sanding the wood to perfection. These Be Mine blocks were another quick and easy Valentine Project. I used a 2×4 for these as well. I figured out what sizes I wanted my blocks and cut them out on the chop saw. I painted the blocks black and decorated with scrapbook paper and vinyl lettering. It’s simple, but simple is what I wanted for this project.
