DIY: Water-colour Magnet Shadow Boxes

I just love water-colours – the effects you can achieve and the bright or soft hues that come from the same palette.

It just so happens that I have a set of magnetic spice jars that I’ve never managed to use that looks as though it’ll be just perfect for this little project I found on I Still Love You. I’ll let you know how I go as I go along . . .

Decal Transfer Tutorial with free printables


This is just about the oldest item on my to-do list – I love this style. Whether it be these definitions for labels, or for a cushion cover, or even just on a canvas on the wall. So I was super excited to come across The Painted Hive and Kristine’s fabulous tutorial complete with free printables to create these gorgeous labels for yourself.  Now if anyone has seen any more words/definitions around I’d love to know about it – I’d like to get a little collection going then hit a few projects all at once!

Toilet Paper Roll Cord Organization

I’ve been hoarding toilet rolls since I came across this on Pinterest and I don’t have enough yet to start this project but I definitely have some ideas about taking it a step or two further by poking the “wall end” of the plug through a hole in the back of the box, and creating a kind of charging station.  That’s the theory anyway – although I think that the heat from charging may not mix well with the cardboard of the toilet paper rolls so it may just be a single-purpose storage facility after all.


Magazine Page Suitcase

I love the idea of this decorated suitcase, although I imagine it as more of a decorative item – rather than a practical one – I wouldn’t trust the baggage handlers I’ve met with it. Although a pile of different sized decorated suitcases would make a really neat looking storage solution!

Sincerely, Kinsey has the tutorial and it’s a really good, easy to follow one. I’m going to have to hit the op-shops to find some old-school suitcases to decorate!
