It seems like I am always adding new tools and gadgets to my workshop, but no matter how much I have, there is always something else that I know that I need. Trying to decide exactly what to buy and what to wait on can sometimes be confusing. Other than the actual tools that are needed to do a job, there is so much more that can be necessary. So, I took a good long look at my workshop and narrowed down an accessories list that I feel contains 10 workshop item must haves.
Trivets are an accessory that every kitchen needs to have. They come in all shapes and sizes, but I really love the wooden ones.

And today, we are going to walk you through the instructions for how to build a wooden trivet just like this one.

I have discovered 27 DIYs to Reduce Electric Bills that seem to have the most effect.
One of my favorite places to shop for home storage and organizing products is the Container Store. They are right up there with Ikea, as far as I am concerned, when it comes to budget friendly items. I started shopping with them long before I started this blog, and I continue to pick up great quality items from them to this day. So, I thought that I would let you in on what I think of as their best kitchen gadgets for this year.
Making gift boxes is my absolutely favorite paper craft to do. With just a little bit of imagination, a simple box can be customized to fit any holiday. But, the thing that I love about these little DIY Halloween treat gift boxes is that it is the perfect craft project for kids.
