DIY and Making a House a Home

Nick and I love doing DIY and home projects together. Since it’s summer, we decided to get some flowers for our entryway. They are really soaking in the sun and I’m loving the fresh color! I am loving summer.

Much cheaper than buying a similar one and more personable, I think! It also goes well with our shelf we put up a few weeks ago. Now we just need a splash of color in there! :)

So we decided to paint it for some more color in the living room. It goes great , and it was free–can’t beat that!

Let’s get crafty: DIY Braided Headband

So I have an oober long DIY craft list of things I want to do. Since I don’t have to worry about wedding planning, moving, or school yet, and since I don’t have a way to get out of the house, I can finally actually DO the things on my list! (Amazing, I know!)

So I did this cute little braided headband. I love hair stuff, so this will be perfect and I can’t wait to make more with different colors. Here’s the tutorial link: http://mycakies.blogspot.com/2010/01/braided-headband-tutorial.html. I didn’t have a sewing machine, but I’m pretty confident in my hand-sewing skills, so I wasn’t too worried about that. It’s pretty easy and you can get creative with it! :)
