twist ties

Don’t you hate when you open a loaf of bread or a bag of bagels and loose the twist tie? Well leave it to Michael Graves, for Target, to create a multi-purpose reusable tie. These work so good, I don’t even bother with the paper ties anymore.

colorful napkins

 I am always looking for colorful ways to enhance the everyday items I use. I came across these precious napkins on kirtsy {by way of smashed peas and carrots} and cannot wait to duplicate. These are the perfect way to dress up a table for a dinner party or to bring as a hostess gift.  And after its all over just throw them in the wash and use them again!

their way & the DIY way

My sister saw these bracelets recently on a {reality show} celebrity and wanted to have them immediately! Instead of purchasing the below set for $62 she set out and made her own {and so graciously made me a set too}. You too can have your own with the simple steps below!

their way

{jelly bracelets with gold charms, $62}

the DIY way

{neon jelly bracelets, 144 pieces for $4.99, amazon.com}

 Once you get the bracelets head out to your local crafts store and pick out your favorite charms {pick up some jump rings too}. To put the charms on you will need the jump rings and 2 pair of  pliers. Follow the simple steps below to add the charms to the bracelets!

  • Hold a pair of pliers in each hand
  • Use the pliers to grab onto one side of the opening of the jump ring
  • Take the other pliers and grab the other side of the ring
  • Push one side away from you while pulling the other side toward you so the jump ring opens
  • Hold on to the jump ring with one set of the pliers and with the other attach the charm
