DIY Mason Jar Spice Drawer

First question....
Who thought it was a good idea to put their spices in those tiny cabinets above the stove?  I did!  Until you actually go to cook, have a hot food either popping or bubbling on the stove, and you need to reach above those hot pots/pans to get those needed spices.  Then they you think to yourself, every single time, well that's not a very good idea.

FINALLY finally I have taken the time to solve that very problem.

I actually hunted Pinterest for a very long time trying to find the best solution.  I love organization solutions!  I came across this PIN and knew it was the right one for me and my kitchen.  My spices are now right next to my stove where I can easily grab what I need, no fuss, no danger involved, and it's made a world of difference!

I have included a video here of the process I used to organize my spice drawer.  I hope it inspires you!

DIY Pallet Clock (Part 2)

Sometimes there are DIY projects that go just as planned... this one took some extra elbow grease.

None the less, the end product was worth all the hang up.  It is such a beautiful piece!

So my first word of advice, don't get your clock kid from Hobby Lobby.  Mine was broke and missing pieces, even though it was brand new and not opened or tampered with.  We ended up buying a second set from a clock supplier on Amazon.

Second piece of advice, make sure you wood is as thin as you can get it to be.  The post on the clock kit is only so long.  We had to do some extra sanding on the back for the clock workings box would fit.

Lastly this clock is 24" wide and needed a high torque clock kit.  If your clock is smaller, order a kit that matches your size of clock.

My new video is the 2nd part of the Pallet Clock tutorial, you can see the first part in my Day in the Life of a DIYer post here:

Here's the newest video and the finished product!

Mason Jars! Crossin My Heart Creations Etsy Shop

Welcome to The Daily DIYers Etsy Shop!

I feel like I am an "evolving crafter."  I sort of get my feet wet in a lot of different types of crafts.  I think all "good" crafters sort of get into something, prefect it, and then move onto something new.  In my mind, I don't really get bored with projects, I just want to try new things!
I had this wild idea to streamline my Etsy Shop.  It was a hodge podge of different things.  I've had this love for Mason Jars for a long time now and thought, I just want to have a shop full of Mason Jar items!
