This year feels like it flew by! Not only is it already November, but Thanksgiving is in two days! I can’t wait until I get to go home and eat copious amounts of pumpkin pie. While Turkey Day is one of my favorite holidays, I love those days between Thanksgiving and Christmas. They are filled with Christmas music, holiday baking, and cheesy holiday movies.
As a blogger, this time of year also means a lot of crafting. I got a head-start with my holiday decorating this year by making these modern holiday-themed terrariums. I like how they’re not your typical red-and-green decoration, but still bring holiday cheer to any room!
It’s gonna be a rainy weekend in Chicago which gives me the perfect excuse to stay indoors and escape this summer heat. If it’s not rainy where you are but you don’t plan on going anywhere here are some fun projects you won’t want to miss…
In typical fashion I bought the wood for this project weeks ago and just got around to making it. Blogging is hard work, guys.
I originally saw these shelves at Urban Outfitters and fell in love with them, but there was no way I was paying 40 bucks for one shelf. I will admit, it was difficult sourcing the wooden circles for this project. The ones I found were either too thin, or too expensive. I had used one of these clock faces to make my Donut Clock and remembered that it was the perfect size and thickness. I figured since the middle of the circle would have the shelf piece, the hole in the middle didn’t really matter.
I love how these shelves turned out! They are a great way to display all those little trinkets.
If you’re a long time reader you will already know that my favorite projects are easy and simple. Today’s project is both. I saw a picture of this hanging leather rack on Pinterest and knew right away I had to try and make my own. This was my first time working with real leather so it was definitely an educational experience as well.
Happy Friday, friends! Don’t know about you but spring fever is in full effect at my house. I live with three dogs and we find ourselves playing outside more and more these days. This is the first time I’ve ever lived with dogs and I honestly don’t remember what life was like without them. I’m hoping to make some DIYs for the blog in between playtime this weekend. Plus, I have an exciting announcement coming up next week so stay tuned!
