Studio 5 - Weekdays at 11am on KSL 5

So Studio 5

We regularly spot ideas or products that make us think of you - things that are creative, smart and useful or as we like to say, things that are "so Studio 5".

Studio 5 Executive Producer, Michelle Torsak shares what's in her file right now.

I love to be inspired by the creativity that is abundant on Studio 5. While I don't have the time or talent to tackle everything we do on the show, I'm reminded that I can enrich my life with bite-size projects and ideas. So, when I come across something that could add "simple" joy to my life, I tuck it away in my "So Studio 5" file.

I already know I won't have time to deliver handmade Valentine's to everybody I love, but I can show my husband I love him with a Cool Whip heart on his hot chocolate.

Cool Whip Hearts

I love whipped cream in my hot chocolate, so I think this idea shared by Ashley Phipps of Simply Designing is brilliant. In addition to being brilliant, it's easy. Instead of being overwhelmed by all the wonderful things I could do, this is how I will leave my mark on Valentine's Day.

Free Factory Tours

On a trip to Colorado last year, I toured the Hammond Candies Factory. It was so much fun! So, when I saw this website highlighting the hundreds of free factory tours throughout the country, I knew it was a keeper.

Big Sister/Brother Button

When I came across this idea from the creative sisters at Eighteen25, I melted. As the auntie who has taken older brothers and sisters to the hospital to see the new baby, I recognize the value of this idea. Talk about making the "oldies" feel part of the special occasion.

Frosting Mixology

This is one of those "why haven't I thought of that" ideas! The amazing girls from A Beautiful Mess share three ways to punch up your basic buttercream frosting recipe. Cookie butter. Nutella. Peanut Butter. Enough said.

Valentine Puppets

There are hundreds of darling V-Day card ideas floating around, but I haven't seen anything like this. This is what old-fashioned animation looks like! Available as a FREE download from You Are My Fave, this could be a "special" Valentine for cousins.
