Friday DIY Roundup

Happy Friday!

I apologize for being MIA this week. It's been a difficult one. I've been dealing with insomnia every night, fever, panic attacks coming from nowhere, and a global unease and angst. Add familial trouble and administrative tasks to the mix and I just wasn't in the mood for blogging. I'll probably write about these feelings and how I try to cope with them soon. Anyhow, I'm not writing this to be negative or beg for pity (everyone has their ups and downs!)- but simply to explain my absence.

To empty my mind and change my thoughts, I'll keep my hands busy over the weekend! DIY projects and jewelry making, here I come. If your weekend plans involve some DIYing too, here are my suggestions of the week :

1. DIY wooden polaroid displays from Sugar & Cloth
2. DIY mudcloth pillow from Almost Makes Perfect
3. DIY achy muscle rub from Hello Natural
4. How to make your own photo soap from A Beautiful Mess
5. DIY stellar embroidery from For the Makers

Have a beautiful weekend!


  1. Love this roundup -- can't wait to try the embroidery. Thanks! Hope you feel better soon (I've has a similar month and know how you feel).

  2. the mudcloth pillow looks so absolutely stunning! i love your photography skills too!

  3. Sounds like a miserable week! I understand. I struggle with anxiety and the past two days were horrid. Thankfully, EVERYDAY is a new day :)

  4. Love the photo soap! When I'm going through what you've just been through, I tell my family I'm going shopping and go to my "safe place", the nearest library, with my favorite music on my iPod (The New World Symphony by Dvorak plus some metal and rock) and just sit for an hour or two with my phone off. It helps if you concentrate on the music and on breathing deeply. If the library happens to be closed, I pick up a snack and drive to a park or a Wal-Mart and just sit in the parking lot. Just pick a place where you will feel safe and make sure to keep your phone off, so your family, who thinks that you are the only one who can solve their problems, can't reach you.

  5. Sorry to hear you're not doing too well lately! Bkweb's ideas sound really therapeutic. I've been in the same place, so you are not alone. A simple walk also really works wonders. Something about fresh air and the open skies makes me put things into perspective, or at least figure out how to approach the problems (open mind, open heart, then a strategy specific to the problem).

    Hang in there. No pressure from your loyal followers because we love you!

  6. Hope you feel better soon! I think the Polaroid picture diy is neat! I think it'd be pretty cool to put a magnet on the back so you can hang them on your fridge or whiteboard too.

  7. It's very cool! I like it!!

  8. I would like to say that this blog really convinced me to do it! Thanks, very good post.
