Pottery Barn Inspired Kitchen Tablet Holder:  Most of my cookbooks and recipes are now online so it’s nice to have a place to put your tablet while you are in the kitchen.  It’s basically a newer version of the cookbook holder.  This one is simply a cutting board, a Scrabble tile holder, and a triangle block.  Then you paint and distress it!  So easy and awesome!

Recipe Binder and Organizer:  My husband made one of these for me years ago and it’s still one of my favorite possessions.  It’s a personalized decorated binder, binder dividers with tabs (for difference recipe sections), and clean sleeves.  I print my favorite recipes online and stick them into my binder.  I also stick recipes cards in my binder.  Hubs jokingly calls it our “family bible” because it contains our more precious recipes.
