Last year, I found a great blog post on creating your own lined canvas bins using old diaper boxes. I bookmarked it for future reference.

One of Dylan’s gifts from Santa this year was a Mr. Potato Head. Given he only has the basic kit so all the pieces fit inside the potato, but the “trunk” never seems to want to stay closed. When I saw an idea on Pinterest to make a burlap bag to store Mr. Potato Head […]
