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.

Pimp my rain boots

Since the spring is decided not to come to our town and I am tired of wearing my winter boots I altered my rain boots while I felt I will be using them for couple of weeks to come.

To begin with I had these cheap leopard print wellies. I didn’t think of them much but I had them around just in case.

I used a hole buncher to have the holes for the ribbon to go through but since the ribbon was much wider than the hole I made two holes under one another to give the ribbon more space.

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!
