For me the beginning of this summer was mostly spent indoors, due to some crazy pregnancy morning sickness (it’s so nice to be alive again). Anywho, now that I’m finally feeling better we are headed out for more picnics in this warm weather. I’ve never really had a cute picnic basket or container to carry food to a picnic, so I made one. A couple of weeks ago I shared this tutorial (and free pineapple printable) on the HP Create blog. I’m very happy with this pretty creations and I just used it at the park last week.
Supplies needed to create my Pineapple Picnic Cooler:
- Cooler (I used this small cooler from Igloo)
- Painter’s Tape
- Spray Paint Primer
- Colorful Spray Paint
- Free Printable Pineapple Shapes (printable found on the HP Create blog)

The entryway in our home (and I’m assuming most homes) tends to turn into a catchall. I’m constantly searching for something as I head out the door. Where did my keys go? Where are my sandals? Did I grab my phone? All of these entry ideas will help me organize my entry.

For years we’ve had an plastic hose holder attached to the side of our home and I’ve wanted to replace it forever. It was ugly and it’s not so great to have holes drilled into the siding of a home. It’s now gone because I made this Bucket Hose Holder to replace the old plastic piece, and I shared it on the Better Homes and Garden blog.
Supplies needed to make this Bucket Hose Holder project:
- 3/8 drill bit (for metal and wood)
