DIY Magazine Rack

It is official, all 6 of my kids are now in school!!  I am a little shocked myself, but excited to watch them learn and grow, it is so fun!

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of family, back to school nights, end of the summer camp outs, and all sorts of activities, including pulling out 3 huge ugly bushes from our back yard (major happy dance :) which was a last minute project.

Needless to say my blogging has been on hold, but I did do a project that I have been wanting to complete for YEARS...and let me tell ya, it is SO nice to have!

A DIY Magazine Rack for our master bathroom.  Ahhhhh.  I love cute organization.

This happens to be my last contributor post at Oh My! Creative.  I have appreciated the opportunity to share on Susan's blog for the past year, it has been a great experience!  So hope on over and check it out, I have a super easy tutorial...and it doesn't have to be used for just magazines.  You could make this for piano books, school papers, office work, scrapbook paper, the storage ideas are endless!

Check it out Here!

Thanks so much and have a happy day!
Hugs!

One of my favorite things about blogging has been my discovery of so many amazingly talented people!  Many of you have probably seen the tour around blogland, where bloggers have been answering questions and featuring other bloggers that they admire.

Old Chairs into New Bench

Wow, life has been so busy, and guess what?  It don't think it will be slowing down....EVER!  

But I am good with that!  We are gearing up for back to school in a couple of weeks and I know my kids are excited, even it they won't admit it!  My oldest will be a freshman in high school and I am declaring myself officially OLD, how did this happen?!  Fun times ahead...

As far as projects go I am trying to get back on track after vacations, family stuff, and friends visiting.  So, I thought I would pull out a post that was first on My Repurposed Life a few months back, some old chairs into a new bench....

Moments That Matter Most

I have heard a lot of people comment on how fast the summer is flying by, and they are SO right!  It is amazing to me how time speeds up, and life becomes so busy and crazy.  How quickly we get caught in the trap of getting things done and checking off the list of daily life, that sometimes we forget to stop and enjoy what matters most.

I have been really trying this summer to stop and enjoy the simple moments, and not get caught up in the world, but more in my family, and it is so wonderful!  When I remember and seek out what matters most in my life, I am truly happy.  And happiness is a precious gift.  All good things come of Christ.



I hope you take the time to enjoy what matters most in your life this week!

Hugs,
Mindi

Old Drawers into Porch Planters

Hello!  Today I am sharing a repurposed project, old drawers into porch planters.  I have seen drawers used for planters several times and loved them....so, here is my version.  This project was first seen on My Repurposed Life the end of May, and I have been enjoying them ever since so I am super happy to share finally them on my blog!
