Happy weekend my friend! And what a weekend it is! As I sit at my desk the wind is howling and the rain is pelting. We are in the middle of a severe storm. The photo above was taken earlier this week on a morning we had a heavy frost. You can see the fog sitting above the city. It was super cold, but beautiful. One of heaters died a few weeks ago and we have been missing it – this week more than most.
I’ve got a pot of gluten free chicken noodle soup cooking on the stove for lunch. This afternoon, I’m hoping for a little break in the weather so I can record a video (no, I’m not doing it outside but the sound of the rain and wind is loud).
It’s a good day to do some craft projects and sit in the front of the fire – if I had one.
This week I caught up on the blog. Over the last few weeks I’ve been really busy with my real jobs and so the blog has been a little neglected. I made another 5 minute earring tutorial and I also tested a method for making transparent labels.
These earrings speak to me of summer – I could use some right now. Turquoise is so beautiful, and these earrings really let that shine. They are simple and quick to make and worth every second of the 5 minutes that it might take to make them. You will also only need three materials to make these earrings.
After putting this job off for a really long time, I finally tackled sorting out this mess in my spice drawer. I bought jars, I painted lids and I made labels. The last part of that statement was supposed to be the easy part but turned out to be really challenging.
I tested the laser printer, paper and tape method to see if that worked. Will I do it again? Find out and see the after by reading this post.
My bathroom clock died last week and I’m missing it. You may wonder why I need a clock in my bathroom – it’s because I absolutely love long showers and I lose all track of time. Actually, it’s really great to have a clock in the bathroom when you are getting ready in the morning.
With a new clock in mind, I wondered if I could DIY one. I went to Pinterest to find out. Here’s what I found.
I found this cute Pottery Barn knock off. I like the simplicity of this clock and the farmhouse vibe.
I really like this clock made from a picture frame. It looks super easy to make. The only problem is that I have a small space above the door, and I don’t think this one would fit.
This clock at Thrifty and Chic looks pretty easy to make too. I like the rustic nature of this one but I’m not sure it’s exactly what I want.
I found this one on Etsy which is much closer to what I’m wanting. I like the idea of adding something floral to the bathroom.
I’m going to have to do some thinking around this. I’ll keep you posted.
That’s all from me this week.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
