That doesn't mean we have to go without, though. Using just a piece of fabric and some wood, you can whip up your own statement piece of art in the space of an afternoon. And the best part of all? It doesn't come with a hefty price tag! Follow along below to find out how to make your own fabric wall art...
After getting married last summer, I had all kinds of leftover materials... one of which being these wooden fan waves that looked like wavy tongue depressors.

Some people call him "sir," others "chief." Still others see him as "hero," as in "I never would have gotten [fill-in-the-blank] done without him." Sure, he could be all of those things to you, too, but you're also the lucky duck who also gets to call him Dad.
That's how one Washington state woman felt about her pop, a Civil War veteran and widower who raised her and five brothers—so much so that she rallied for a day of officially recognized commemoration, and won it in 1910.

If you're lucky enough to plan a summer vacation this year, it's time to start packing! Maybe this is just me, but packing for trips is how I get really excited about them. In fact, I tend to start packing almost a week in advance sometimes! No matter your next destination, you'll want to start making plans immediately when you see all of these cute luggage pieces that will make your suitcase stand out on an airport carousel. Can we all agree that traveling with attractive luggage just makes the vacation that much better? From now on, your luggage can stand out as much as you do and make a statement while you travel.
Whether you're looking for cute carry on luggage, cute luggage sets or just plain cute suitcases, I've rounded up 12 that will give you that vacation planning urge.
Spring and summer is growing season, but that also means it's time to trim your yard. Trees, bushes, and shrubs need to be kept in shape, and to do that, it really helps to have sharp tools. It's faster and easier to cut with a sharp blade, plus it's better for the plant. In just a few minutes, you can actually sharpen garden tools yourself.
Pets. We love them, and sometimes when we're traveling, we don't want to leave them. Whether it's because your boarding situation isn't ideal, or you just can't imagine going on a vacation without them, you want to make sure you and your dog (or cat!) are prepared for a pleasant and non-stressful road trip. I've hit the road a few times with this furry lady pictured here, and after a few hundred hours in the car together, we've learned a thing or two. Here are some tips for traveling with dogs (and cats!) as you head out on your vacation this summer.
Here's a summertime tip: Always make popsicles. Summer is here, which means the Fourth of July is on the way and you probably have a barbeque to host. Whether you're holding a kid-friendly summer party or an adults-only celebration, popsicles will make everyone happy, including you! That's because they're ridiculously easy to make, you can prep them far in advance, and nothing tastes better on a hot day than a refreshing popsicle. We have two tasty recipes for you to prep this summer. The first popsicles are champagne-infused (adults only!), mimicking the colors in a bomb pop. The second are kid-friendly (but equally delicious) lemon-flavored fruity popsicles.
In the last five years or so, I've been fortunate to go on several international trips. Even though it would be free to check a bag on those flights, I never do, and it has saved me so much time and trouble that I can't imagine doing it any other way. If you're doing any air travel, internationally or not, I'm here to tell you why and how you should avoid checking luggage.
I don't know about you, but once summer hits I'm constantly craving tacos. Taco Tuesday, sure... but also taco Wednesday, taco Thursday and taco every-day-of-the-week. The only thing that bugs me is how difficult it is to handle them. How can you serve them without them flopping all over the place? So I decided to craft a simple taco holder out of wood to solve the problem. Keep reading to check out my full photo tutorial!
