April in Review 2017

Again, how is it already May?? It seems like I blinked and April was gone! Unfortunately, I’m thinking May will be very similar. You know how it is…concerts, contests, graduations, tests, last days of school…add in to that people coming home from college, baby showers, wedding showers, and more things I’m sure I’m forgetting (which, btw, is my biggest fear – forgetting something 😳 – maybe because it’s happened), and well, the month will soon be over. I pray that I can fully enjoy every minute of every day! So today I’d like to look back and see what we really got accomplished here @frazzledjoy in the month of April.

Shared Bathroom Inspiration and Mood Board

About a month ago we discovered that our shower fixture was leaking in the kids/guest bath. Like you can’t turn the water all the way off. This unfortunately is not the first time this has happened. We have band-aided the situation several times. This issue lies in the original plumbing which honestly needs to be redone. But for me, and probably most DIYers, that just means an if-you-give-a-mouse-a-cookie-experience. Not familiar with that reference?? You should look it up – great children’s books about cause and effect. 😆 Here’s part one of the update that was completed for the ORC last fall. Be sure to keep reading to see my plans for part two!

My Top 5 Most Used Tools

I am super excited to be spending the day Christmas shopping with my mom. How about you? Have you finished your shopping yet? Have you started?? Ha! Maybe you are shopping for a beginner DIYer. Some who loves to DIY, but might not have a ton of tools. That’s how I was in the beginning! If so, then today’s post is for you! Some of these things may already be in their garage, but I bet not everything! These are some of my favorite things that I use on a fairly regular basis!

DIY Jute Napkin Rings

Hey there! We are hosting Thanksgiving this year and I just about have my plan for the table all together in my head. Now I just need to pull all the pieces together. I found some cute napkins at At Home on clearance. No orange or yellow but still fallish. I just needed napkin rings of some sort. I had thought of using wire, but when I was at Hobby Lobby (to buy the wire) I spotted some wired jute in the fall section…80% off.
I can never pass up a sale like that so my plan changed. The constructing of the napkin rings was experimental for sure but I’ll show you how I made the ones I finally settled on.
