{Simple & Cheap} DIY CHALK PAINT Recipe & Project

If you have been on Pinterest sometime in the last year, you’ve probably heard of chalk paint.

Do you have trouble picking paint colors too?

Mason Jar Blender Hack {aka DIY Magic Bullet}

I’m excited to share a quick trick for making your own DIY magic bullet (if you don't know, a Magic Bullet is a single serve blender). I have a magic bullet at home and we use it 3-4 times a day. I love being able to make one serving, and only have to clean the cup - its so convenient!
