Make the day count

I stumbled up on this page the other day 100happydays.com and it was exactly what I needed. A reminder that every day has something to offer and that you just need to crab it and hold onto the feeling and why not make a memory of it as you go along.

I made: Tinted Lip Balm

I don’t know about you but as I DIYer at heart I have a long list of things to try out and make. So when nothing else but Vaseline helped me with my dry lips I knew it is time to cross one off from this list. Besides carrying around a big pot of Vaseline and whipping it out around a town to get my lips nice and smooth was just plain awkward.

1.Put Vaseline and a piece of lipstick in your small container. 2.Pop it in the microwave. I gave mine 1 minute in there.
3.Mix it together.
4.Leave it to cool down and set in the fridge. I left mine for overnight.

Nice and small to carry around plus wearing it gives a nice pop of color to my oh so pale face.

What have you crossed of your DIY list lately?
Enjoy your weekend!

Denim Shirt Blingover

If this is not your first time around this little place of mine you already know that I love me some makeovers. I love the feeling of making something pretty or cool out of tired things, to give them new life. It excites me like nothing else.
My escape from daily worries. That was what happened today. I was feeling ill all day long but still decided to make something when I got home. I found a pair of old broken earrings and one of my favorite denim shirts and it seemed to be a great idea. So I simply sewed the earrings onto the collar to create a little spark. I am thinking maybe to cover the earrings with transparent nail polish to keep its color when washing. I feel really happy with the outcome! What do you think?Denim Shirt

Hope something has inspired you today!

Personalized Shower Curtain

I had this cute piece of fabric and I had big plans for it. I also had to face the facts and tell to myself that I am not as awesome in sewing to make these big plans come true yet. So I tried to find other ways to incorporate it into my little nest and came up with an idea to spice up my plain bathroom with it.

When we moved in I bought some very cheap shower curtains for a shop similar to dollarstore. I think they cost about 1,50 euros each and were just as thin as cheap. Now since I had one of those left I thought it would be perfect to use for this DIY.

So I sew the fabric onto the shower curtain. As I said before my sewing is quite crap right now (work in process) so it is far from perfect, but the bathroom looks still so much better.

Down here you can see how it looks on both sides.

I think it is pretty good for a transitional shower curtain – well this is what I like to think as I’m waiting anxiously for us to have our own place.

What have you done to spice up your place lately?Hope this Monday will not be too blue for you!

5th !

I can’t believe it has been 5 years since I’ve been in hiding myself here in WordPress. Think it’s time to come out or invite my friends here to play? Will think about it. So far pretty much no of my closest friends or family knows what’s going on over here.
5 years is a long time. A lot has changed since then. And a lot of good things are on it’s way. Yay!

I made: Simple necklace holder

I’ve been trying to organize my stuff lately and it’s been harder than you would think. Today I made a place for my jewelry using random things I had laying around like packing paper, old cabinet door, yes that’s right, some tape, a hammer and nails of course. And da-daaa!

I made: Rental kitchen cabinets makeover

Hi everybody! I wanted to share this DIY project with you today. This is for all of you who are trying to make the best out of your rental places without investing too much money in it.
I hated my cabinets from the moment I first layed my eyes on them. They were old and broken and looked tired overall. Painting them over wouldn’t probably helped me out there. Also my kichen is very dark so I wanted something to reflect the light a little better. The outcome isn’t perfect and I need to do some bits over, but I was really exited to share the idea with you right away. Cuz it’s so simple and fun.
Also forgive me for the pictures are odd looking dark and low quality. I took the pictures during day time, I tried with and without the flash, with and without the lamp. Nothing really worked well enough, but here they are anyway.

I printed out a bunch of recepies, attached them onto the cabinet doors with a glue stick and covered them all over with a clear sticker, the one you can use to cover up your notebooks and books for school usually. Can somebody help me out and say how do you really call this thing in english? Do you have a special word? I think it cost me about 4 euros in total and had some extra even left over.

Dinner Table Makeover

I know I pretty much promised a fringe project by Monday and there’s still no sign of it. But I have a perfectly good reason for that, I took on a much much bigger project. It was pretty hard work and it became a definition to me – if I can do this, I can do anything. So I guess I can do anything now :D.

So this is what I started out with. Years ago we bought a wooden table with my dad. I had some kind of a black phase back then, so I asked my dad to paint it. That phase is long gone now and this table was just making our room tiny and dark.
So I started sanding, and went on sanding, feeling, no more like hearing how my muscles grow. This went on for almost three days.

I was so happy with the result. Yay all the way!

And this is what we have now. I can’t stop looking at it and smiling all the time. Room is ten times brighter!
