Thank goodness we’ve come to another Friday. Monday I had a wonderful day filled with crafts and planning a doozie of a project- I’ll share more on that another day. Tuesday and Wednesday, I had jury duty for the first time ever! While I can’t discuss the details of the case, I can share that I got all the way to the “we, the jury, find the defendant” part. If nothing else, it was for sure an interesting experience! And this weekend will be filled with catching up on all the work I missed while making secret plans and doing my civic duty – wish me luck. ;)
I’ve recently rededicated myself to spending at least a little time every day handling yarn. Knitting, crochet – whatever. I find I’m a lot more balanced whenever I’m working on a fiber-based project. I don’t know why that is! In honor of my rediscovered zen zone, today’s Weekly Reader is dedicated to my favorite recent yarn-related patterns, finds, projects & ideas!
With Valentine’s Day behind us and the Olympics nearly over, creative bloggers took the opportunity to share some new ideas not bound by seasonal hallmarks. Many beautiful ideas fell under the DIY style category of projects, which makes me oh so happy! Some of my favorites are funky fresh ideas, some a little crazy, and some are simply gorgeous.
It’s Valentine’s Day, you guys! I totally have work today, but I wish I were at home getting my heart-shaped crafting on! Since I can’t, I’ll just share some lovely projects & recipes I’d be making if I could right now. Happy Valentine’s Day :).
Every Friday, I gush over favorite DIYs in my Weekly Reader roundups. Many of those favorite crafts, decor & recipes have been Valentine’s Day projects, but there have been even more great V-Day projects banked in my Be Mine Pinterest board all season. Heck, I’ve even been gathering up ideas all year! What better way to celebrate my favorite DIY inspiration than to bundle up my top 50 ideas, plus a few of my own projects from weeks and years past, to share with you.
The Olympics start today! And Valentine’s Day is in one week! I am seriously more excited about this crafting season than most Christmases. Especially now that, while often resulting in adorable party crafts, football time is over. This year, I’m seeing so much lovely pink and grey in DIY projects. It’s pretty and feminine in an elegant way. I’ll always be team red, since it’s my favorite color, but I’m really swooning for what my fellow bloggers are designing right now. Here are some of my faves.
When you search for Olympic crafts or DIYs, SO much of what you find is designed for kids. Kids are great, but I work with them for my job and I’m not a mom. I don’t want to do kid stuff in my off time, is that so bad? Bring on the Olympic rings jewelry, boozy DIYs, adorable baked goods, and Grecian accessories!
