Quick kitchen refresh


As an avid baker it's great fun to hang out in the kitchen crafting while a pie bakes. 

My new Great Big, Wonderful World collection of crafting dies have just released from Spellbinders giving me the perfect excuse to do just that!


This is such a busy week it was heavenly to simply play.
I allowed myself half an hour to give the kitchen a face lift.

With just that sliver of time, I wiped down the countertops and cabinets, cut the paper and decorated the storage jars. After the flurry of Christmas baking, this was my perfect little half hour holiday!


I designed this die with a banner that can be left blank for flexibility.
Little did I know how perfectly it would work as a label in my kitchen.


I love using things in unexpected ways; it cheers me up to make my whole home a canvas.
And it makes my thrifty soul joyful when a few scraps and my trusty opaque white UniBall Signs pen can give the kitchen a mini-makeover!


For the sugar storage jar I happened to have half a gatefold-style greeting card left over.  This one is from my Sweet Christmas collection.

So I turned it into a label. Why not?
I always feel free to combine different dies. Mix and match is my style.


As a celiac baker, I'm loving this little project. 
The pretty labels will keep my kitchen both organized and creative. 
And that makes me so happy!

What a wonderful way to display your pantry with beautiful labels. I bet your family really complimented you on your job. I am in love with your walking buddy and new puppy. I do envy you for living up north as I do miss it and loved all seasons. Could not really tell you a favorite. Each one had such beauty and meaning. Your description is so great I could close my eyes and see it all. Thank you for posting this.
