As you know by now, I am trying to redecorate our home. Many of the things in our apartment screams “young-just-moved-away-from-home”, and I really want to do something about that within my tiny budget.
So what I try to do is to come up with ideas on how to upcycle some of our stuff, or buy new stuff to replace the ones we have now for cheap.
Christmas lights! YAY! I love them, and I would have them in our apartment all year round. Last week I was our looking for some Christmas inspiration for decorating the apartment in December, when I came across some fairy lights with origami balls.
I fell in love with them, but I thought the price was too high (I’m cheap!!) and also that it would be a fun project to do.
Do you know that feeling of having an idea strike you, and then just have to try it? Well this is how I felt about these diamond necklaces.
I have been wanting to make a little zipper pouch to put in my bag for a while now. Honestly I use it for receipts that I get when I buy something for my business (it’s a tax thing), so I like to keep them apart from my other receipts. However, I thought how many would actually need a bag for that beside me and other bizz ladies (maybe?) ? So I figured the size could easily be used as a small makeup bag or for some lady-stuff and I thought I would show how I made mine.
The winter season is upon us and for me that means burning a lot of candles. I like the coziness of a lit candle in the evening. However, I always replace the candles when they are almost burned down, which leaves me with a bunch of candle scraps.
I think it is a waste to trough them away so I keep them and then reuse the candle leftovers to make new candles when I have enough.
October is almost over, so I thought I would sum up on my favorites posts this past month. Oh, I’m looking so much forward to the coming months with Christmas and all. For a DIY’er like me, Christmas is just pure joy! Everyday we get a little closer. I have some wonderful plans for the blog in December, so you can look forward to many many projects!
October has been a lovely month on the blog. I really like all my projects for our home. I like that every month a get to do a little project that makes a small difference in our home. This month I have made a couple of décor pieces that I’m really proud of.
Have you ever had one of those days where your ideas just doesn’t match your creations? I just made this little guy – looking all goofy and weird. I thought I would make a cute little pumpkin box and share it with you today, but then this guy happened.
We have had The RUSCH clock for some time now, and I have been wanting to give it a makeover since we got it. We bought it in IKEA for about 2 dollars, so it was very cheap.
So it was time for me to get a new wallpaper on my computer and I thought I would share it with you.
