 This is a super simple DIY! An old picture frame is given new life as a dry erase board!


I'm all about keeping it simple in 2021.  My first DIY was no exception. I took an old picture frame & turned it into a super cute dry erase board.

I also created a little video of the process that I put on my Instagram if you want to check it out!

Hey Besties! 🌟 So, I had this serendipitous encounter with Brewsy back in fall 2020. Picture this: I'm scrolling through Instagram and bam! Brewsy's ad pops up. As a wine enthusiast, I've always been curious about making my own but thought it was super complicated. Then Brewsy came along, promising ease and fun, and I was like, "Yes, please!" So, I snagged their welcome and bottling kits right away.


Life, as it does, threw me a few curveballs (hello, foster placements!). My winemaking dreams took a backseat... until Christmas rolled around. πŸŽ„ The thought of sipping homemade wine during the festive season? Irresistible!


My first batch was such a hit that I dove right in for a second round, and guess what? I'm bringing you along for this grape-to-glass journey today! πŸ‡✨


Before we get into the nitty-gritty, here's a sweet deal for you: a special coupon code at the end of this post for savings on all things Brewsy!


What's Brewsy?

It's a fab little kit that transforms any juice into a robust 15% ABV wine in just 5 days. With the Welcome Kit, you're all set to make 12-18 bottles of your very own vino. Just grab refill bags when you need more.


I'm about to give you the lowdown on my winemaking escapade. Trust me, Brewsy's instructions are gold, but here's my own 'Tiff's Twist' on it!

What You'll Need:

  • Brewsy Welcome Kit
  • Your choice of juice (I went with grape and cherry)
  • Cane sugar
  • Optional: Bottling Kit, Glass Gallon Jugs

Let's Make Wine!

  1. Pick Your Juice: You can get creative here. Cherry, grape, you name it!
  2. Sweetness Level: Brewsy's calculator is a gem. It helps you determine how much sugar to add based on your sweet tooth and the type of wine you aim for.
  3. Mix It Up: Pour sugar into a gallon container, add juice, and shake it up. Drop in a Brewsy bag and shake again.
  4. Set It and Forget It: Almost! First, it brews at 75-80 degrees for 3 days, then chills in the fridge for 2 more. The yeast does its magic, and voilΓ  – wine!

Racking and Enjoying

After brewing, you'll want to rack the wine (separate it from the sediment). It gets better with age, but keep it refrigerated since it's all-natural with no preservatives.
