My husband belongs to a Star Wars costuming group called the 501st, and I’m working on a costume so I can join, too. After going to a party at the home of another 501st member with a decked out Star Wars-themed garage, I decided that for my husband’s birthday I’d give him a little Star Wars flair for our own garage. Since we have been talking about needing to organize our garage pretty much since day one, it made sense to combine Star Wars into our plans. And thus, the idea for the pegboards was born.
We found a really awesome way to choose wedding colors and shared it over on Offbeat Bride. But it’s totally useful for choosing colors for your home, too! There are fun little tools called color generators that will extract the main colors of a photo for you, allowing you to snag and save them for your decor and wall color shopping trips.
I’m admittedly a little too scared about smashing my thumb when I’m using a hammer and nails. So I’m a lot excited about the ThumbSaver! It’s basically a long magnet that cradles the nail while you go to town on it with a hammer. Of course, if you happen to have a long magnet, that’ll do the same trick!
How many of you are of the ONLY EVER TAKE ONE TRIP school of thought of grocery unloading? You loop shopping bags over both arms, both shoulders, and maybe even somehow rig up a grocery-bag-backpack. No matter how heavy that load is, you WILL carry in all 28 grocery bags IN ONE LOAD!
If this is you, then you know why I’m so into the One Trip Grocery Bag Holder.
This $6 keychain from Wicked Clothes is fierce! REALLY fierce. Slip your fingers through the holes and the kitty cat becomes a close-proximity defense tool.
