Well, hello there.
I’ve missed you.
Have you missed me? Don’t be coy 😉
If you follow me on Facebook, you would know that I’ve been in a bit of a slump; crafter’s block, if you will.
It’s pretty frustrating to feel uninspired but I’ve somehow been able to keep myself busy with other things (ahem, life). I’ve never been more on top of laundry. Which, I know my family appreciates but it’s my least favorite chore.
In the next few weeks, I plan on
shirking my household responsibilities completing several summer wardrobe projects in anticipation for a 5 day trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with the hubs (no kids! Thanks to my bestest friend and *other* soulmate, Hollie, for “volunteering” to keep them!), which, will take place mid-March. This is a work-related trip for him so there will be a few mandatory events that I need to keep in mind when deciding what to pack. Specifically, we will attend a formal Awards Banquet that I’ll need an outfit for and I’d love to DIY it (I’m thinking the sequin maxi below). I wore this to the banquet last year and I felt just a smidge too casual (I also just realized that I never showed you how I made the bodice. shame on me). The event is not really black-tie but it’s full of suits and evening gowns and, in case you haven’t met me, I’m not an evening gown kind of gal. So, I will definitely be going for separates.
I realize it’s still winter but, what better way to kick the gloomy weather blues than by immersing yourself in summer colors and daydreams of the beach?!? Sooo…today’s post is a list of DIY inspiration I’ve found out there in the blogosphere. Perhaps, these projects will motivate you as much as they have me.
What do you think of these projects? I hope you’ve been inspired to start some summer projects of your own. If you do, please share them!
I’m off to walk the lake trail with the little one since we finally have some sunshine! I love Thursdays and I am so greatful to have nice weather today. Hey, that reminds me, I heard an interesting statistic the other day (not sure from where) that said that most women are happiest on Thursday. That was speculated to be a result of anicipation for the coming weekend but also attributed to the fact that most women have sex on Thursdays more than any other day of the week. I’m not really going anywhere with this except to say enjoy your day!
