DIY to Try Friday

March 30, 2012

For me, this week was one of those where there is never enough time but l feel like I got just enough done. With a blog, the moment you finally press “publish” on a post that you worked so hard on there is a sense of joy and feeling that you’re oh so on top of it. Shortly thereafter, you start working on the next post and the cycle begins again. It’s just part of the process and I really do enjoy coming up with new and fun projects to share with you. However, one night this week I took the time to not work on the blog at all after 8:30pm 8:42pm. I gave myself a much needed manicure and tried to catch up on TV with my husband. Taking care of myself makes me feel a little balanced in this new life of girl/mommy/wife/daughter/sister/cousin/friend/blogger. I’d love to hear how you take care of YOU. We all wear many hats and sometimes it’s important to take them off and put on a sparkly headband. =)

And NOW for the fantastic DIY projects for your weekend inspiration.

Kate from Centsational Girl made the beautiful clay petals on this lovely DIY Clay Petal Vase.

I’m thinking up a few ways to try this out. I already shared the idea with Kate but I know she’ll keep my secret. =)


Heather from At The Picket Fence showed us how to customize a barstool. She took a plain Jane stool and turned it into something so beautiful and one-of-a-kind. I love stencils…


My friend Lindsey from Cherryvale Farms showed us how she made the yummiest looking Ricotta Tart with Candied Kumquats.

If you have any recent DIY projects or recipes to share, please send on over. You can email me at

Have a fabulous weekend!
