DIY Projects

Raise your hand if you are addicted to Pintrest?  Have you pinned a million Do-It-Yourself projects that you hope can be completed in the near future?  

The ideas are great and plentiful so it's easy to store up for a rainy day.   The best advice I can give you is to pick a certain topic and truly learn the art of it and then do it well!  

One thing I would like to learn how to create is jewelry.  There are some amazing DIY Jewelry pins and video tutorials out there.  Look at all the ideas on I really love the Coral Statement necklace, how beautiful! My daughter and I did get a little creative in our Christmas gifts last year with our homemade bead necklaces we made for family, but I think I'm ready for bigger and shinier and wearable fun jewelry.  They even have a video tutorial on the site but what is even more cool is I found that there is a monthly subscription!!  Yes, a DIY Jewelry Kit that has all the supplies you need to create a great product! is considering doing a monthly subscription to review the jewelry piece each month.  I am very excited to see what she creates to see if my $30 is worth the investment of fun and a new piece of jewelry.  

Now all of you are going to start thinking about making that dreamy necklace or bracelet.  Go get creative!

This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
