6 DIYs To Try This Weekend


6 DIYs to Try This Weekend

Well, this first week back has felt a lot like getting a tooth pulled – you know you have to do it, but does anyone really want to go in and get it done?! Probably not.

The exception to that though has been the announcement I made earlier in the week, which I’m actually really excited about – I’ve gotten so much energy out of reading your supportive responses and suggestions. So thank you SO much for that!

On the bright side of still feeling a bit unprepared to be back to work, I’m trying to be kinder to myself in the new year and realizing it’s okay not to be fully ready for something. So, as much as I’m sure I could read into the ‘deeper meaning’ of why I’m not fully prepped mentally to be back at the studio each day, I’m not going to bother. It doesn’t have to mean anything in particular. I’m probably just bummed that I have to get out of bed at a normal time and leave the house while wearing ‘real people’ clothes. Not exactly something I need to agonize over.

Sooo, short story long, I imagine some of you are feeling the same way I’ve been feeling this week and looking for some kind of inspiration to get things going again. And I figured the simplest way to ease into next week with a positive attitude is with a handful of creative projects to get you (and me) excited about the new year. You with me? If so, here we go…here are 6 (fun) DIYs to try this weekend.

1. hanging leather strap planters from A Beautiful Mess 
2. DIY watercolor stationery
3. marble pitcher project from The Sweetest Occasion
4. honey yogurt fig pops
5. DIY hanging organizer from The Lovely Drawer
6. apple stamp table runner DIY from Design Sponge

P.S. If you’re in the market for a really cool calendar, be sure to enter to win the giant 2017 Stendig calendar that I’m giving away on Instagram. I’ll be choosing a winner over the weekend, so be sure to enter soon.

Hope you have a happy weekend!

I tried the marbling DIY a while ago with my nail polishes, but they were all too thick to pour!

Bummer Aleeha…It works for me every time. Maybe the nail polished were old? I’m not sure what makes them thick?

I’d love to try the honey fig pops! Maybe I can find a way to make them vegan 🙂
