As summer winds to an end we all get a little emotional.  Memories were made, vacations were taken, images captured.  What better way to commemorate these events than with this awesome frame?  It just screams summer with flip-flops, sand, sun, and seashells:

The beach has become iconic of the American summer vacation.  Families across the country take an average of 4.5  trips per year, and sun and sand are the most popular destinations. The end of summer also brings back-to-school preparations.  It might be your child’s first time off to kindergarten, or a nearly grown teenager returning to class.  Either way, we have to get ready.  We want them to look their best on that first day back.  Hair combed smoothly, wearing the trendiest looks to hide their nervousness.  Be sure to snap a shot of them as they head out the door.  They’re sure to complain, but you’ll be glad they did when you can look back at them in this frame in a few years:

While shopping for new clothes and shoes to wear, don’t forget to grab supplies!  Fill up that new backpack with brightly colored pencils, pens, folders, and notebooks.  The store shelves are filled with every character and color scheme the kids are into.  With more options than ever before, back-to-school will be a lot less “boring.”  Check out this frame for inspiration:

As the school year progresses, there are various concerts, plays, parties, and sporting events to record for future reminiscing.  Also, you cannot forget the everlasting school picture.  Using Imikimi frames will provide boring school pictures with the opportunity to shine, and they’ll make cherished keepsakes for friends and family:

Your child’s teacher plays a significant part of his or her school year.  Teachers are with the kids day in and day out and (usually) come to feel as if they are their own children.  Sneak a class picture while you’re on a field trip, or take a photo of the teacher from the yearbook and stick it here for a Christmas gift that’s sure to make her smile:

Beauty on a budget has been a concern among women (and men!) for years.  You have that one outfit with no jewelry to match it, or perhaps you’ve seen a piece from an expensive brand and cannot bear the thought of spending a lot of money for occasional wear… Do-it-yourself jewelry crafts can be found all over the web for all skill levels using things you might just have laying around the house!  Here are five fun wearable’s you can craft today:

1.  Using paperclips, tape (any kind), and jewelry findings you can create one-of-a-kind pieces that will get you plenty of attention!  Imagine making this in all colors for variety.Image           Photo Credit: How About Orange

2.  Wondering what to do with all those old cd’s you have?  Break them up, glue them to felt, and BAM you have a new pair of earrings.  You could get very creative with this one by using shapes other than circles.  Think rectangles or triangles.ImagePhoto Credit: PinkChocolateBreak

3.  Taking a vacation this year?  Make a wearable memory of it by cutting your destination from a map and gluing it onto a cabochon.  This would also make a great gift for any recipient.

4.  Root through your garage or basement to find this simple, yet bold ingredient for a ring: A basic hex nut from the hardware store, painted any color you desire!  Clicking the photo will also show you how to make other crafts with nuts and washers as well.ImagePhoto Credit: Design Crush

5.  Last, but not least, you’ll need a place to store all of your sparkly new trinkets, right?  An old frame and strips of lace should do the trick.  ImagePhoto Credit: Decor4all
