I have become obsessed lately with blogs that have DIY projects and tutorials. Since I have been staying at home with Leeland, I have found myself with a little extra time to actually craft and make things for our home, and also with the cut in an income, it makes a lot more sense to come up with sensible budget friendly solutions when there is a need around the house. One blog that I have found in the past few months and I really enjoy is Make It and Love It. I have discovered some really cool projects (mostly children related) that have pinned and plan to come back to later, and there is one that I have already made that I would like to share with you.
Just before Christmas, I did some serious cleaning out of Leeland's toys and wanted to do some organizing in preparing for Christmas. I knew that Daniel and I hadn't gotten Leeland much, but I knew that Leeland has Grandparents, and cousins, and Aunts and Uncles that were going to spoil him. (And they did.) One of the things that I was struggling with was that I knew he was going to get several sets of blocks for Christmas and also several puzzles which would need to find a home. At a perfect time, a tutorial was posted for some clear vinyl storage bags over on Make It and Love It. You can find the full tutorial here.
So far I have made 5 of them-- 1 large bag for Leeland's "Mega Blocks", and 4 of them for puzzle pieces. Each puzzle has a bag of pieces. He still has several more puzzles so I would like to make a few more.
