This "Paper Pot" toilet paper and tissue holder was named a winner of 2008 Japan Good Design Award. There are lots of fun colors to choose from, and I love the simplicity of the design. Good-bye boring tissue boxes!
Here is the "Pin-up Frame" that can be pinned, taped or hung on almost any type of surface you can imagine. What a cute idea for displaying your kids' artwork!
These "lunchskins" from 3GreenMoms.com are reusable, colorful cloth pouches are made from a high quality, moisture-proof German fabric used worldwide in the food industry. These bags are food safe, extremely durable, grease-proof and can even be thrown in the dishwasher. Their design is so innovative and unique that they even have a patent pending! What a great idea!
These are the cutest felt phone and camera cases ever!

How fun...can you imagine happening upon this headed in for your morning commute? There's no way you could have a bad day after that!

I found this video at one of my favorite blog sites "This Blessed Nest". This group of young girls sing the national anthem before a basketball game. Two of the girls are 6 years old and the others are 7. WOW! I am just amazed...this is extremely moving...I even teared up.
Here's what Paul has to say about it:
This is a craft idea I made for Country Living. Its a tree cut out of vintage wallpapers and glued directly on the wall. Great in any kids room. Looks hard, but its not. Make a template on a roll of finger painting paper. Cut it out and tape it to your wall. Then its easy to see if it needs to be bigger or smaller. Cut out the tree in a wallpaper and glue it to your wall using wallpaper paste. Cut out leaves in at least 3 different wallpaper patterns. You will need about 60-80 of them. Glue them on the tree with the same paste. Sing a little song and maybe the birds will come and sit in your new tree.
