when i should be grading papers...

...i spend time finding projects around the house to keep me busy instead.


It's no secret, we have a small kitchen.


There's not much counter space and it quickly fills up.  So, I've been wanting to take our spice rack that only holds 16 spices and takes up a bit of counter space and morph it...into something a bit more practical.


It was my hope that this new solution would also free up some much-needed counter space.


All it took was a few containers (ordered online from a bulk company for super cheap), some magnets from Joann's (the weekly coupons helped), my circle punch, some simple word art, and the amazing Cricut.  Ta-da!  :)

I love this post :) If you were to sell these on Etsy I would seriously buy them... And, I had to chuckle when you said "simple word art," I would not have a clue how to do that! You are so talented!
