A Delightful Dose of DIY

I sat at my desk yesterday afternoon with a blank stare at my computer screen. I checked my notebook filled with bloggie brainstorming, and I wasn't feeling very inspired by my list of potential posts. What's a gal to do? Well, the answer is quite simple -- step away from the computer and create something! Do you ever feel this way? Unfortunately, my urge to get "crafty wit it" was foiled when I realized I needed to get dressed and head to work. Womp womp. It's rather silly; I have all of these projects bookmarked and pinned. It's about time I roll up my sleeves and dabble with a little DIY. Take a gander at some of my favorites. Perhaps it's just what you need to spark a little creativity in your week!

Muffin Tin Planters: I am my mother's daughter. I love all things mossy!
Succulent Wraps: I keep obsessing about succulents and creating my own terrarium. Just do it already!
Origami Bows: Can you ever have enough bows? I'm just sayin'.

Washi Tape Organization: My heart skipped a beat when I pinned this gem!
Gold-Dipped Notebooks: These would make delightful gifts.
Water Bottle Chandelier: Only Jordan Ferney could create something so lovely out of water bottles.

Tile Coasters: The pink and white stripes had me at hello!
Pop-Up Place Cards: I think it's time to throw a party.
Custom Envelopes: Is it bad that I automatically knew they were using recycled J.Crew catalogs?
