I got quite a bit done this weekend! I ran errands, cooked yummy foods, made a handful of DIY projects, did a favor for some friends, cleaned the apartment, and even got around to taking all of my bottles/cans/boxes to the recycling center!
epaulette in my Summer Wishlist post, but at $140 it was a bit beyond what I wanted to spend on a piece of jewelry. So I made my own. The original is on the left and mine on the right. Not spot on, but I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out!
anchor bracelet a while ago and after toying around with the knotting scheme a bit, I think I got it figured out. I chose to use large brass end caps instead of the method used in the original post, and I think I wound up using much thicker cord too, but I think they're really beautiful!
macrame bracelets, the tube bracelets, and the leather cord tube bracelet. I love the way they looked stacked! (the left and center pictures are from Honestly WTF and the picture on the right is my finished product!)
Cork Succulent DIY party at her place where our friend V joined us. We used a dremel tool to drill holes into corks where we planted the miniature succulent plants that I had purchased the day before. They turned out REALLY cute! B and V attached magnets to the back of theirs to take to work and pretty-fy their cubicles. I chose to add thumb tacks to mine and stuck them into my wall at home. Succulents are supposed to be hard to kill, so here's hoping!
recipe I found on Cup of Jo for an orange vanilla marscapone cream topped with fresh berries and crumbled sweet biscuit. It was light and delicious and tasted vaguely of creme brule. And during the entire process we sipped on Grapefruit Habanero "Margaritas"...
