All-in-One Fun Snappy Towels

From play to function these Snappy Towels are a must have for every child. Both my children have been enjoying their Snappy towels in a variety of occasions. Since the towels are personalized, these towels have become really special to my children. They love all the things they can do with the towels from turning it into a super hero cape, princess robe, wings, hooded towel, poncho, blanket wrap and more.

Recycling a Bottle with Glass Stain

When I do crafts, I enjoy recycling materials that I find around our home. Prior to this project, I haven't used glass paint so I was excited to see how the transformation of a frappuccino bottle into a decorative vase will turn out. I used a beautiful, pink Transparent Glass Stain for this project and really enjoyed the ease of using it.

Jar Decorated with Modpodge Sheer Colours to Hold Paintbrushes

A few years ago when my children were younger we recycled a jar by putting colourful craft paper and decorating it. Even after three years this jar has been handy, as it holds our paintbrushes. Now that we have fabulous Modpodge products, I wanted to upcycle this jar. I used the pretty pink Modpodge sheer colour and painted over this jar and let it dry completely.

Kanex MiColor Accessories

With a lot of Apple devices in the household you cannot have too many lightning cables. Standard Lightning cables that come with Apple devices are not particular strong and can be a little delicate. The Kanex MiColor ChargeSync USB cable with LED Lightning Connector comes in Silver to complement the color of the latest iPhones. The cable is braided with nylon fiber, which makes it slightly thicker and stronger and is durable for everyday use.

Making a Trellis DIY Project

In spring, we made a v-shaped Trellis for our Clematis. It is cheaper to make a trellis with only a few materials compared to buying one. For this project, I haven't provided exact measurements because you can adjust the length of the wood according to where you want to place the trellis for example in a deep pot or against the fence etc. The measurements also depend on what type of plant you want to use the trellis for such as Clematis, Jasmine etc. Hope the pictures and the instructions below will inspire you to make your own trellis and save some money.
