Getting my DIY On

May 26, 2009
Lately, I’ve been feeling very crafty. I used to do lots of crafts, even knitting and crocheting, but it’s been a long time since I’ve had a real project to work on, and I’m really starting to get the itch. Part of my newfound inspiration could be my recent gorge on old Design*Sponge DIY posts. They’re always entertaining, and their ideas are adorable, but at the same time make me want to smack myself in the forehead for not thinking of it myself.
I’m also thinking of how I can use these ideas in my apartment in Florida. Some of them are definitely ones that I’m going to tackle, and soon.
First, I’m going to try out the “Paper Coasters/Trivets” project from Design*Sponge.
I was using one lonely hand-me-down glass coaster rescued when my mom decided to get a new set for herself. Until, that is, it got wrapped up in my computer cord, and crashed to the floor. So now I have no coasters, and I’m thinking that my old N*Sync and Britney Spears CD cases would go to good use if I used them to make these coasters. (After I remove and carefully store the CDs elsewhere, of course. ;))

And this project from Photojojo is going to have me scavenging for glass jars for months, I fear:


Super cute, right? And this is one of those projects where I go “why didn’t I think of that?”. I’m seeing a lot more jelly, pickles, and other things that come in jars in my future.

This has also inspired me to finally finish a few DIY projects that I’ve been planning to do for months now: I’m finally going to make a headboard for my bed, and I’m going to finish that jewelry tree that I’ve already bought a gorgeous vase for.

It’s going to happen! I’m gonna get my DIY on! I’ll be sure to post pictures of my awesome completed projects.🙂
