I saw a version of this layered framing idea in a gift shop sometime ago and thought it would be a fun way to frame a cute photo of Margaret’s children that I took while camping last summer.
Make clean up fun and easy with Toy Bags. I don’t know about you, but I get so tired of toys everywhere! With 3 little ones we’ve acquired a few toys. I love watching my kids play and hear all their giggles, but I hate the tears and tantrums at clean up time. I shared in their frustration of not knowing where to put things. We tried toy baskets but everything would get tangled and lost. My sister reminded me of something my mom said about cleaning when we where little.
“Give everything a home.”
The idea for toy bags was born.
So I make a home for some of my kids toys. Now clean up time is a game. Everything gets put in its own toy bag. Toys don’t get lost nearly as often and my sanity is intact.
For my pattern I used Lined Draw String Bag Tutorial from In Color Order. These bags are so easy make and Jeni’s tutorial makes them even easier. I added the applique to help my kids remember what toys goes in each bag. I used coloring pages I found on Pinterest for my pattern.
I hope you enjoy!
Mary Catherine has a smallish house with this great kitchen space…but, there was no counter space and not a lot of cupboard space either. So in our love of remodeling projects, we decided to make her and her husband a “KITCHEN ISLAND” for Christmas. Check out our DIY: Kitchen Island.
- Put up the child gate to keep the little helpers out.
- Ask someone to help you.
- Follow the directions from ScotchBlue Painters tape when painting on textured walls.
