Here’s my take on some of the things I have pinned on Pinterest with the links.
A pincushion from I Can Find The Time placed on the sewing machine is a real time saver, at least it is for me J It’s one of those ideas that made me say, “why didn’t I think of that!”
For my pincushion, I threaded a ¼ inch ribbon through my 2 ¼ inch steel yarn needle and pulled it through a pincushion I already had. (I put a couple of adhesive velcro tabs behind it to keep it still when I used it) Then I simply tied the ribbon around the sewing machine so I didn’t need to make anything.
Sandbox table? I loved the idea of having a sandbox for the kids but didn’t like the price tag of one or the room one takes up on my small patio. So, without the table, this container, 46 qt with a lid, works just as well. Why didn’t I think of that?!
Another kids craft hand print giraffe; they are all over the place, but here is the link to the one I copied.
An idea for plastic bag storage using a coffee can from House of Grace had me rummaging around under my sink looking for a place to keep this holder. Then I realized I already had the perfect bag holder under there; a couple of big flower vases, one with a large opening now doubles as my bag holder. Now I don't need to add one more thing to my under sink storage area.
