To me, the best DIY's are the ones that look like they cost a fortune, but you actually made it in your dining room last weekend. I love a good project! Here are a few of my favourite DIY's floating around, and you won't believe they were all handmade projects. You'll definitely long for your tool box as you read through these...

I've been searching on my favourite blogs and decorating sites for ways to keep clutter contained and organized. I love bins and baskets because you can litterally throw stuff in them in no particular order, then put the bin on a shelf and no one sees your clutter and your shelves and storage spaces look organized and tidy. For the kitchen, I love the junk draw that hides all my funny shaped and odd sized kitchen utensils and tools. Now I'm loving trays, not only for serving, but for a way to organized clutter and display decorative items, while still allowing easy clean-up when extra surface space is needed.

Ok, I realize that many of us are experiencing a hot, sticky, humid summer and the thought of blankets and throws are the last thing on our minds...BUT I've been working on this collage type throw over several months. It is my 'I'm bored so I'll make something easy and eventually it will come together' project.
The above pieces are a few items I've made so far that will be combined to make my colourful throw, but what is it supposed to look like, you ask...

Anyway, usually while I'm sewing I just put my pins on the table because I'm trying to keep my attention focused on the moving needle so I don't sew my fingers to my fabric...there have been a few too many close calls. The problem is, my sneaky cats like to sit on the table and eye up the pins and I'm always afraid they'll steal one when I'm not looking, therefore I finally made a pincushion!
