DIY Screen Printed T-Shirt

i

So on our 16-hour-turned-22-hour trip to Florida we listened to a lot of music to keep the kids happy.  Isaac and his buddy Andrew begged for us to play “I’m the Man” by Aloe Blacc and to roll down the windows while they sung it loudly.  I think we listened to this song at least 15 times.  Watching the boys get that “I’m the Man” look on their face and groove and dance in their seats was definitely a memory that is ingrained into my head whenever I think of our Florida trip.  I thought it would be fun to make the boys a shirt as a memento.  The both love the shirts (as do all the boys in our neighborhood). In fact Isaac is on day three in a row of wearing it.  I keep reminding him it is beneficial to wash it – he isn’t convinced.

Farmhouse Grain Sieve Light Fixture

Hi there again! I’m Shayna from The Wood Grain Cottage and I’m back to share another project with you. I don’t know about you, but I really love unique lighting that isn’t generic and can’t be found in every home. And because I have an obscene crush with farm related items, I really wanted to make a light out of an aged grain sieve. Problem was, the only grain sieves I could find were either really expensive or way too big. So, I took matters into my own hands and decided to make my own… all for around $20! I am seriously in love with the outcome…
