DIY to Try Friday

April 6, 2012

Another exciting week. I’m hosting my very first giveaway (click here and scroll down within the post to find out how to enter to win a 16″x20″ custom canvas print from Chic Canvas) and my DIY Girls Accessories Holder was featured on Craft Gossip.

Here are three great DIY inspirational ideas for your weekend.

Grace over at Stripes + Sequins made this super cool DIY Heavy Metal Bracelet from items at a hardware store. I love meeting girls that love the hardware store as much as I do…


Ashley at The Latest Find made some really pretty spring decor by re-using some empty food jars. I almost threw out a perfectly good empty applesauce jar yesterday but luckily I came to my senses and will try out this fun DIY.


My new blogging buddy, Kristin from Living in Color Print, shared this fantastic DIY Framed Scrapbook Paper Wall Gallery. I mean what a perfect week me to feature another great wall gallery, right?

Happy Passover and Happy Easter! Now to eat some chocolate-dipped matzah…

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.
