This afternoon, a few friends and I got together to put some succulents together in the container of our choice! It was so much fun and quite therapeutic! For those who do not have a green thumb, like me, succulents are really a great way to start because they do not need too much care. I must admit, whoever said that it’s hard to kill a succulent, must have not killed one before because I definitely have failed a few times. For the most part, the survival rate of succulents in my care have been 75% so that isn’t so bad!
I am always amazed at crafty people who can replicate something they see. I am designer, yes but besides the mouse, I am a little clumsy with my hands. =) Check out this amazing Anthropologie inspired paper scroll backdrop from Bird’s Party Blog.
The inspiration from the store.
Bracelets have totally been coming back in and people are getting creative with making their own. Here are some of my favorite and keyword, *easy* DIY bracelet projects!
Hardware incorporated bracelet with a few bolts. I’m sure you can change it up with different kinds and finishes. Found on RT on Campus.
The magic leather braid bracelet. I remember awhile back when leather bracelets were all the rage and I see them resurfacing again (does that mean I’m old??). Suzi’s Crafts offers a great tutorial on a braided leather bracelet.
