Remember the summer that was by creating scrapbook-style placemats. Use vacation snapshots, road maps and other souvenirs
to decorate art paper, then laminate the finished product at an office center to produce not only a beautiful reminder of
your vacation, but also placemats to last for years!

Instead of replacing furniture for a new look, use slipcovers to brighten up the space. Slipcovers provide a budget-friendly way to experiment with different prints, fabrics and styles in your home. They can easily be washed, replaced and switched out―giving you a new room in a flash!
