this summer i have been crafty - it is a wonderful diversion from the reading, writing, and other (sometimes) annoying aspects of academia. i’ve only made a decopodged vase, jewelry organizer out of a picture frame & a small dish made out of refurbished magazine pages; but, it’s all been very fun, and definitely good for my over-worked soul :]
however, i have been “liking” practically every other d.i.y. post i find, so some order is required.
this summer i eventually would also like to make/decorate:
-glow-paint covered mason jars (to store nail polish? pens? candy? something!)
-covers (out of patterned contact paper) for my see-through storage bins that i glamorously use as transportable closet organizers
-something (more mason jars?) that involves chalk board paint —- i’m totes obsessed with the idea of making a chalk board surface out of paint, ANYWHERE I WANT ONE!
-a hollowed out book…for something secretive? regardless, i have an old (and giant) dictionary so this will happen soon :]
-glass photo mason jars - I want to put pictures of james franco in them!!!
-plus, my dad and i are eventually going to build a small entertainment unit to put my tv in & to have more storage in my teeny dorm! WINNING.
basically, i need my momma to get me a bunch of mason jars :] hehe
