July 29, 2015 12:03 pm

If you’re constantly combating paper clutter, you’ll be happy to know that there are a few simple solutions that will help stop that mess once and for all. All it takes is a bit of smart organizing and some DIY ingenuity to create a designated space for all of your memos, mail, magazines, and everything in between. Here are three projects to help you get started!

Vertical Paper Holders [scrapendipity.blogspot.com]
Office supplies can be quite costly if you purchase them new, so instead of investing in vertical paper holders for all of your work or school documents, create your own using only recycled cardboard boxes and a bit of paint. This simple tutorial shows you how to cut and fold leftover cardboard into a professional-looking paper holder.

While the standard cork board is undeniably handy, it’s not exactly the most attractive type of wall art. If you want to create something that’s just as functional but a bit more stylish, this fun and easy tutorial will show you how to create a memo frame out of an old frame, sturdy twine, and whatever embellishments strike your fancy.

July 22, 2015 12:42 pm

If you're craving a hearty, home-cooked meal and an ice cold beer to go with it, head to Sweet Water Tavern. This Ashburn-area brewery and restaurant serves a Western-inspired menu of items like the drunken ribeye, fresh seafood, pastas, and salads.

There is a wholesome kids' menu filled with cheeseburgers and small steaks, as well as shareable appetizers like the Tex Mex eggrolls. For lunch, Sweet Water Tavern offers lighter salads and sandwiches, but everything is still served in generous portions that will leave you satisfied. Because Sweet Water Tavern doubles as a brewery, diners can also expect to encounter a variety of handcrafted beers on tap, which are made right on site.

The atmosphere at Sweet Water Tavern is upscale yet casual, with rustic wooden tables, an old-fashioned bar, and a covered outdoor patio perfect for summer evenings.
