Homemade Laundry Detergent {grating optional!}

Confession: I've only spent $20 since June 2014 for laundry detergent....

and I still have plenty left.

Yes, you read that correctly...$20.

And this HOMEMADE LAUNDRY DETERGENT is wonderful.

I'm talking better than ANY store bought brand I've ever tried.

I'm talking I haven't even had to use stain removers since last June.

I'm talking it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin.

I'm talking my hubby who happens to be very picky when it comes to his laundry detergents loves this stuff!

That's a big deal around here guys. BIG deal.

Hello friends!

I've never posted on a Saturday (at least I don't think I have...) but I just had to get this one out there! It's too fabulous to keep delaying the post...

This DIY Wire Basket will run you under $6 to make and really competes with the wire/metal baskets you see in stores. 

If anything, this one has more character than the only metal basket I've purchased. All of the natural bends and imperfections just add to the charm of it!

Easy Feminine DIY Earring Displays {using cork board & wire}

Who's ready for Spring? I sure am! We finally got a few sunny days and I soaked them all up outdoors. It had been gloomy and hazy for what seemed like an eternity so I was ready desperate for some sunshine!

Any-who...moving on to today's super feminine and super fabulous DIY.

It was inspired by my need for some earring organization. I had already organized my necklaces and bracelets with this DIY Necklace & Bracelet Organizer and this Tiered Jewelry Tray I made before that. 

But my earrings were still just thrown into a small bowl. Was is pretty? Yes. Was it functional? Not even close. It was getting quite annoying picking out my earrings in that cute little bowl.

So I got my little wheels turning (which just means remembering jewelry organizers I've pinned on Pinterest) and decided to make these Feminine DIY Earring Displays.

Are they cute or what?
