Now that I’m settled in my new apartment, I can shift from unpacking mode to decorating mode! Since the kitchen is my favorite room, I’m eager to start decorating that area first. I’ve got so many kitchen gadgets and cooking utensils that I’ve already filled every drawer in my kitchen (which is a lot), so I need a way to keep mail, reminders, coupons and similar items organized. I found this adorable ladybug memo board on FaveCrafts that I think is perfect for my kitchen. It’s a simple design, but unique enough not to look like every other store-bought memo board.
Mother’s Day is coming up fast and I still don’t know what to get my mom. She’s a great cook and I love all the food she makes. At Christmas-time she wears her snowman apron, so I thought for Mother’s Day why not make her a cute apron that says I love you! Every time she’s in the kitchen she has an excuse to wear it. It’s easy to make and you know she’ll like it since it was made with love! There’s also this cute cupcake apron for those with a sweet tooth.

The second I saw this project I fell in love with it. It’s cute, it’s easy maintenance and it’s a great craft for kids. Mowing your lawn is never a fun thing to do, but if you grow this Mohawk Lamb you won’t have to mow. The only taking care of that it needs is a trim every once in a while.
My sister has something similar to this in her house and I just love it. She says every time she cuts it, it has that new freshly mowed grass smell. It’s a great springtime decoration to have in your windowsill or on your kitchen sink. Get growin’!
By now you know that I’m into both kitchen gadgets and recycled crafts. So I was pretty excited when I saw this cutting board/bird feeder project today on several different blogs. I love this because it uses recycled items and it keeps you from having to worry about crumbs and scraps everywhere! I guess you would probably have to own birds, or let birds into your home for this to work effectively, but I still think it’s pretty cool. It might be a good project to build outside next to a grill.
Don’t forget to take a look around on RecyclArt, which has some pretty great ideas.
