Have you ever heard of the game ‘Cornhole’ (also sometimes referred to as Baggo)? It is basically a bean bag toss game using a pair of angled boards with holes cut in them. What started as a beer-drinking tailgate game, has become popular for all occasions.
In fact, a hot new activity to do during the break between weddings and receptions is allow guests to play cornhole.
I’ve share some brussels sprouts recipes before (a LOT of brussels sprouts recipes) but today’s is a good one! Plus it is pretty easy. You par-cook the sprouts in the oven first, and finish them in the pan so you don’t have to stand there and watch them the whole time.
Earlier this week, I did a periscope broadcast of me replacing one of my standard two socket kitchen counter outlets with new USB integrated outlets. The kind that have 2 outlets and 2 USB ports although there are lots of great versions on the market.
I know not a ton of people are on Periscope yet (and since those broadcasts only last 24 hours), I decided I would edit that video down and share it here as well:
You ever have one of those ideas that seems absurd at the time, but you try it anyways and it turns out to actually work?! Well this is one of those projects for me. I am so surprised with just how much I love the final product!
I created these two little geometric terrariums with nothing more than an old 80s chandelier and some foil tape used for sealing A/C ductwork.
So, the story behind this makeover, goes something like this:
If you are like me, you probably have a large collection of coffee mugs. I know that I’m not the only one with too many mugs, based on the huge numbers of coffee cups I see at thrift stores. I try to only keep mugs that have a special meaning to me, but I am constantly stumbling onto new coffee mugs.
For example, I just got this pretty cool coffee mug at Facebook (I even instagrammed about it), and as much as I like it, I just don’t have room in the cupboard:
But since I don’t want to part with my favorite mugs, so I came up with this great little craft to repurpose them, instead of getting rid of them.
Today’s project is one I worked on when I was visiting my parents at their lake house. If you don’t remember, last summer we fixed up the boat house with a new paint job, and by finishing off the window trim. This summer my mom wanted me to build a simple bench for out front so that we would have somewhere to sit near the dock without having to walk all the way back up to the back porch of the main house.
I’m super excited about this project because it was a completely custom build based on my mom’s specific needs.. and it is also the FIRST PLAN I HAVE INCLUDED THE FULL CONSTRUCTION PLAN DIAGRAMS!! (A skill I learned from Ana White at Haven!!)
If you have been following me on Instagram, you've probably realized that I’m on vacation at my parent’s lake house (or at least I was last week.. I’m heading home today.) And of course, like any good DIY’r I can’t just relax while on vacation. I have to keep myself busy with little projects.
