Leather Belt Crate

Howdy!  I am happy to have another contributor post that I shared at My Repurposed Life to show you...otherwise you would be getting, "Nothing. Zilch. Nada." (If you can name the movie that comes from then I am impressed, and you probably have small kids, or grandkids) :)

We have been in Utah running a Marathon this past weekend (which I am happy to say, despite a 6 hour delay because of weather leaving Colorado, we made it safe and the race went surprisingly well considering injuries and such, it stinks getting old!)  We got home late last night and I fly out early Thursday morning to attend the SNAP conference in SLC, which is where we ran the race!  So yeah, projects...on hold. 

Here is my Leather Belt Crate...
This Leather Belt Crate is a perfect way to add color and texture to your home decor!  A simple and stylish repurpose project!

Coat Racks made with old License Plates

I think maybe I live in a false reality.

Ok, let me rephrase that.  My brain lives in a perfect world, and it makes plans and lays them out with such good intentions.  Oh, wait...I guess it is not just my brain, it is me.

When I am making plans I forget to include little things, like...eating.  Eating is overrated.  Right?  Wrong.  And people also think they need clothes...clean ones.  I can do that, just don't expect them to be folded.  Digging for that sock mate for 10 minutes when school starts in 5 builds character right?
*Just want to make sure you know the above was written in scarcasm. :) 

Then, there are all the other things life throws out, like kids needing stitches...life is full of fun little surprises.  

I guess my point is, when you think you can bust out something in a weekend...say?...I don't know...a bedroom makeover for example, including making the bed.  That is a false reality!!!  At least in my case.

Phew, I am glad we cleared that up.  Making sense?  I SO want to share amazing awesome cool projects with you all the time.  I have about 5 years of work all planned out in my head, but with real life going on (which really is the most important thing, and my priority) I just can't physically keep up with all my great intentions.  It get excited, but then remember I have to pull it back and take it at the right pace, which is much slower than my brain would like. :)

So bear with me...like Michelangelo paining the Sistine Chapel, someday I will make an end!  My bed is waiting patiently in the kitchen as we speak.

Sorry for that random thought...I needed to get it out, thanks for those of you that actually read it!

On to my project, Coat racks made with old License Plates...

I have a friend that is having a rustic reception and I decided to make these Pallet and Scrap Wood DIY Picture Frames for her to display on her tables.  Since I have scrap wood coming out my ears...seriously it is getting bad...I decided to use it up.  (a small fraction of it anyway)

Date Night Gift Crate

Hello, wonderful readers!  We are starting our spring break and it is nice to just chill with the fam.

In the next few days you may see some changes around here, I am having some updates done to MyLove2Create and I am getting a new logo!!  Not that I had one before...so I guess this is my first....I can't wait!  Hopefully this week everything will get finished up.  

In the mean time, I wanted to share a crate I recently gave as a wedding gift to some friends.  I call it a Date Night Gift Crate.  I like to give the couples something to remind them to stay young and have fun by continuing to date after they are married, AND.... who doesn't need a cute crate?  Right?!

Decorative Triangle Tray

Hello!  Last week when I posted my Large DIY Metal Pegboard Command Center I promised at the end of the post that I would be sharing a fun and easy project at the end of the week...and then I didn't.

As usual life got a little crazy and while I liked my project, I thought it still needed tweeking, so I put it on hold for a few days to think, and now I am ready to share it with you today.  My Decorative Triangle Tray!

Large DIY Metal Pegboard Command Center

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you enjoyed your weekend!

We are still knee deep in snow, and I haven't seen signs of it going away anytime soon.  My kids are loving all the HUGE icicles around town.  I guess winter had to arrive eventually.  I am good with it...as long as it goes away in time for spring!  

I have some exciting news to share, I was asked to be a contributor over at Remodelahloic!  Eeeek! I am totally doing a happy dance!  

I will contribute every other month and feel so honored they asked me.  Cassity is awesome and has an amazing team of contributors.  I have to be honest, I am a little star struck.  :)

Today I am sharing my very first post, my Large DIY Metal Pegboard Command Center

Cabinet Doors into Children's Desk

Happy President's day!  It was so warm last week, 60 degree weather warm.  My kids have been out riding bikes, jumping on the trampoline, playing basketball, rollerblading...it has been wonderful!  But alas, it couldn't last forever and the snow is back, brrr!

When I pulled up my Cabinet Doors into Children's desk to share with you I was enjoying the "green" in the back ground, ahh spring....

This project was so fun for me, and my kids are still enjoying it.  I shared it on My Repurposed Life several months ago, so I am excited to finally share it with you today!
