Happy Friday! Mini DIY Round-Up

Happy Friday! Hope you had a lovely week. Mine was almost exclusively spent at my desk. Yesterday evening I had to attend a prize giving ceremony and give a speech as I received my prize (bragging parenthesis : I won an award for having the best exam performance, yay!) Anyhow, once I was called upon to make my speech I nearly ran away. I had exaggerated concerns over what people would think of me and was certain that they would judge me and laugh at me. So I stammered and coughed and in the middle of my speech I thought : ha, there's a reason why I choose to spend most of my time behind my screen! And it occurred to me that taking refuge in hiding from potentially judgemental people may not always be the best way to go. So I'm making a good resolution (it's never too late, is it?) : I'll try to get out of my comfort zone more often. Maybe you'd like to join me in this mini challenge?

Anyhow, above are my four favorite DIY projects of the week (links below). If you're an avid DIYer and missed some of my weekly round-ups, you can find them all right here. Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I think I'll join you in that mini-resolution making scheme. Mine is to be less fearful about taking my camera out and taking pictures of my new hometown.

    And that collar is absolutely gorgeous!

    As well: congrats on that award!!! That's so exciting. :)

    1. Thanks Amielle! I need to take more photos too. Yours are always pretty. Oh, and I've been to Chartres a few years ago, isn't the cathedral amazing?

  3. brave you for giving the speech even though you were scared. It's important to feel the fear and do it anyway
