Happy Friday! Mini DIY Round-Up

Happy Friday! It's been a weird week. On last Friday my oldest cat started to be very unwell, and it got worse and worse until we had to put him to sleep on Tuesday. On that same day, my partner's second niece was born. We went to see her at the clinic, I was bleary-eyed after having cried for hours, but I held her in my arms and she was so pretty and calm that it soothed me. I'm still an emotional wreck but the coming of this new life, as well as your comments, your kindness, your compassion and your words of wisdom, have been truly comforting.

Mini DIY round-up of the week :
DIY Gold Leaf Paper Mache Bowls by Kelli Murray // DIY Geometric Earrings by Ali Henrie // DIY Gilded Moleskine Journal by Design Mom
