I remember as a child that walking into the library was like walking into a gateway of intense adventure. That feeling you get when something fantastic was about to happen. Getting lost in book was the best feeling ever! Of course, as a mother, I’ve passed along the love of books to my children. Sadly though, our public libraries are dwindling, even closing. Today I’m trying to make an effort to bring back life to books. In my quirky kinda way, I’m turning this upcycled magazine rack into a book caddy. Hang with me now…there’s something for you too!
Not only was this was a hand-painted piece by someone back in 1980, but it was also falling apart. The sides were popping off and the center divider was completely detached. Nothing a little DIY can’t fix, right?
On Monday, I told you that I had a little sewing tutorial for you today, and I have to say that this is something my whole family adores. It’s inevitable that as a parent or grandparent, you will be soothing bumps and bruises from your little ones. Why not make that ouchy time a little less stressful and calm those tears with a Boo-Boo Bear – a rice ice and heat pack?
I don’t know about you, but I would love to see this sweet face staring up at me helping me feel better. The soft velour fabric and lightweight rice make for a soothing touch helping your little’s woes go away.
Just keep it in your freezer for a quick fix, or lightly warm in your microwave for a long-lasting heat. Perfect for both bruises and aches. My kids head right to the freezer when they get hurt and feel better holding their friend.
