Gifts that Help You DIY: 7 Kitchen Gadgets That Save You Money – Wise Bread

Despite the danger of clutter, sometimes gadgets really can help you – and in this case I’m talking about helping you DIY – more!


This article talks about the 7 gadgets that help you save money. And while I’m all about saving money – I’m also all about DIY-ing. And funny enough (if you’re doing it right), sometimes the more DIY-ing, the more money you’re saving!


I definitely have the coffee maker and the juicer/blender but what the hubs and I are particularly interested in is the Sodastream. And not for the sodas, but for the sparkling water! I am addicted (let’s say it’s a very fortunate consequence of being married to a European where sparkling water is much more common than flat).


I also think it’d be really interesting to grind you are own meat. And if you hunt/kill your own meat, it’d be the ultimate DIY!


So take a look at the list and see if any of them could help you increase your DIY abilities! Are there any on there that you have that you think aren’t helpful at all? Are there any that aren’t on there that should be?


Sweet Simple Stocking Stuffer_ Clay Magnets Homemade Holiday Gift Idea Exchange: Project #5 | Apartment Therapy


This is such a sweet, simple handmade holiday gift idea. I absolutely love the clean, white shape of the magnets.

I have an epic list of holiday gift ideas that I’ll be working on this weekend. It will be first of many weekends spent banging out some (hopefully) sweet handmade gifts. I’ll post pictures as gifts are created.

What are your weekend plans? Handcrafting your holiday gifts yet? Or will you wait until the very last minute and just “do what you can”? (Like I’ve done oh-so-many years now.)


For the love of…Block printing


(From stolenmoments)

I can’t express how much I love block printing. It has to be my favorite form of art.

Now that’s not to say I don’t love painting or sewing or any other form of art. I do. What I mean to say is that it’s my favorite form of art that I can do well. The process pleases me and even does the final product.

Here are some of my favorite block printing finds.

What’s your favorite form of art? Do you have a preference that is different from what you’re good at making?
