Be On the Look-Out; Back in the Saddle of DIY

Free time? What is this novelty of which you speak? The life of a theatre major hardly knows the term, but it has finally fallen into my hands! I am finished with rehearsals for the rest of the semester. Do you know what that means? It's time to DIY!

I've been scouting around finding projects, and here is what I've come up with. Ah, it is going to feel so good to be back at my crafting table! I have missed it so much.



When I go thrifting, one of the first things I look for is old embroidery hoops. I have twelve or so and have yet to put them to use. I am thinking of making a few to hang near my desk or by the door. Sounds quick, easy, and lovely to boot.



A little cork, a little paint, a little creativity and voila! Another simple project that is a must for the living room next year. And I just might have everything I need already, which is a plus!

Who doesn't love a good chalkboard paint up-do? I have several things in mind tucked away in my closet, and all I need is the actual paint. Question though, which is best? The spray paint or the canned? I would guess the latter, but if anyone has experience please let me know!



I got a cute little yo-yo maker/template around Christmas and it has been sitting idle on my desk for weeks. But no more! Between garlands, pillows, and other crafting embellishments, I'm sure to find a good use for it. I will soon be a yo-yo queen.

Lastly, it's time to bring a little spring into the kitchen, and I think these will do just the trick. I love the bright yellow and how simple this can be. Simple but effective. I can't wait to get started.

What crafts are you planning this week?
