Trader Joe’s Bag Challenge: Project 9 – Menu Board

So, I was thinking the other day of what else I could do with a Trader Joe’s bag.  Then, it hit me. Why not turn a cutting board into a menu board?!  This makes dinner feel way more special.  You could use this as a menu board for a wine a

Trader Joe’s Bag Challenge: Project 8 – Napkin Ring

This project is so easy even a child could do it! I decided to transform my TJ bag into a cute napkin ring.  This napkin ring really is quite easy to make (trust me!).  If you are having guests over, but aren’t feeling too fancy why not make these playful

Trader Joe’s Bag Challenge: Project 7 – Wrapped Flowers

If you are always scrambling at the last-minute to find a housewarming gift, I have a super simple project for you. Housewarming gifts are sometimes hard to come up.  Me, being who I am, I am always trying to come up with something unique as a housewarming gift. Even though unique

Trader Joe’s Bag Challenge: Project 6 – Paper Lantern

It’s back!  My creative juices started flowing once again when I came across an amazing pendant light at West Elm.  I was looking at the light and “BAM!”, it hit me.  Why not use the handles of my Trader Joe’s bag to recreate my version of this light.  Well, here you go! {Photo

Trader Joe’s Bag Challenge: Project 5 – BYOB/Gift Bag

The TJ bag challenge continues… Restaurants that offer BYOB (in my opinion) are the best!  I love that you can drink as much as you want without spending a ton of money.  I mean, the mark-up on alcohol is ridiculous! Mike and I were at Binny’s a couple of weeks ago

Trader Joe’s Bag Challenge: Project 4 – “Clay” Vase

It is hard to believe I (at one time) worked at CB2 for a hot second.  Even though I didn’t work there long, the one skill I took away from that gig was how to put tissue paper in gift bags.  Yes, I know how to properly fluff tissue paper in gift bags

Trader Joe’s Bag Challenge: Project 3 – Paper Flowers

I was in West Elm over the weekend and saw these lovely paper flowers.  Of course, I looked at the price tag and thought “Really, for paper??”.  That’s when it hit me.  Paper=Trader’s Joe’s bag!!  So, I took inspiration from West Elm and created my version of their paper flowers.  Want to learn

Trader Joe’s Bag Challenge: Project 2 – Place Mat

You are probably thinking, “How in the heck is she going to make a place mat out of paper?”  Umm…with contact paper, obviously.  I am kind of obsessed these days with One Kings Lane.  They love to send me emails with all of their new vintage finds…dangerous! As I scanned the kitchen accessories (and daydreamed

Trader Joe’s Bag Challenge: Project 1 – Picture Mat

When I came across the below picture frame I thought, “Wow, that picture mat sure looks like a paper bag.”   A paper bag, huh?  Well, how about a Trader Joe’s paper bag?!?  The mat gives the picture a bit of a vintage vibe.  Love this! Photo credit: One Kings Lane  

The Great Trader Joe’s Challenge: Time to Reuse That Brown Bag!

I shop at Trader Joe’s (aka TJ) about 85% of the time.   I have a TJ right by my office, so it is super convenient to pop on over during my lunch break to get last-minute dinner supplies, or a sweet treat if I am craving something unhealthy for lunch.  They
