Five Projects on My Horizon

Project #1:
Knitted Blanket

DIY knitted blanket on a bed

Out of my February 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Living, knitting made its appearance as the crafting technique of choice.  Since I find knitting very relaxing (and repetitive), I thought I would try my hand at this DIY blanket idea.  The article came with full instructions and dimensions, too! Don't worry- click here for the online instructions and you can try it with me!



Project #2
Recycled Paper Crafts
recycled magazine and paper projects
Magazine and Paper Crafts made into wall art

I recently got off a bit of an origami kick, but that kick introduced me to the versatility of paper!   And it is amazing how abundantly paper is available.  I am hoping to explore basket weaving, picture frame making, and wall art.  Rather than using just magazines-I plan to use the surplus of phone books that we have gotten over the years. A super easy way to reuse something that you probably already have and make it into something beautiful!


Project #3
Plant a root vegetable garden.


Why? Well, why not!?  We eat a lot of root vegetables, and since they are pretty tough, I feel like there is an even greater chance that I won't kill them!


Project #4
Add a few splashes of wallpaper.

Inspiration comes from Design Sponge!


My plan for this project isn't super developed yet- however- I am still super excited about it! I am thinking either wallpaper the backs of our kitchen cupboards (we have glass fronted cabinets), or one of our bookshelves.  And of course, there is always more room for a little wall art gallery.


Project #5
Snazz up our little backyard deck.

Okay- think this, but on our wooden deck!

  1. Oooo!! I'm loving the knitted blanket! I just learned to knit a few weeks ago. Once I get a bit more practice, I want to try a blanket. And that one is super cute!
