I've had a bit of a rubbish weekend, so I thought some flowers might cheer me up

Do It Yourself

I've recently been doing a little bit of D.I.Y. (that can be used as a noun, right?) (Super duper easy things, btw, I'm really not that talented.)

I've made:
A twinkle light lamp (using a mason jar) 

A whole bunch of friendship bracelets
(using embroidery thread and string.) 

I'd really like to make a few more things:
Milk glasses/adorable vases! 
(All that & more at More Design Please)

Yummy doily biscuits (via Tara Sloggett.)

This beautiful journal (from The Creative Place.)

And many many more beautiful things!

I've also recently put up another shelf in my room, (as I keep on making/buying/getting wonderful things and I don't have enough space for everything!)

Wonderful new shelf, featuring photos of my mum & aunty when they were wee, doilies (I love doilies, I am a nanna), Dennis & Donut (from Teddy Bears Wednesday), a lovely mirror given to me as a bridesmaid gift from my sister, an eiffel tower ornament from Paris, & my new twinkle light lamp. And above are my Jim & Pam magnets, a map of The Renegade Craft Fair Chicago from my lovely friend Kendall, and a watercolour from my other sister. 
(See what I mean about too many things?)

So, if you have a crafty bone in your body (or even if you don't) why don't you try doing it yourself?
