Happy Friday uncrafters! I just wanted to bring you into the know about some of the fun things I've got in store for the blog. Some serious DIY is in the works, folks. Here's the backstory: I've never been the type to put in the effort to make my own life prettier. I'm not naturally inclined to break out the floral-y paper and scissors to make a plain notebook my own, or to make cute little decorations for my room. I'm aiming to change that. My goal is to make my room next year as pretty as possible. Now, I've got two other roommates who probably won't be on board with my style, but I can make my own little corner gorgeous, right? I just feel happier when my environment is stylish, and I also want to do more work! Here are some of my ideas so far (inspired by weddings, of course!):
I've always been a huge fan of weddings with handpainted signs in pretty fonts, like this one:
Isn't that just gorgeous? My color scheme will be a bit different, but I think you get what I'm going for with the signs. This work of art will go on the wall next to my bed, in the form of one of my favorite quotes. Here was my first obstacle, though. I am NOT an artist, and my handwriting is awful, even when I try really hard. So I had to find a way to paint my favorite fonts onto pieces of wood. My thoughts right now are to use a projector...and I think it will work? Hopefully! If anyone has any other suggestions, let me know!
Here's my color scheme: light blush tones with a hint of sparkle, a little light gray, and pops of blue. Muh faves.
That will take up the most of my DIY time. I also fell in love with these blue painted vases from Lauren of Every Last Detail's styled shoot:
So I'm gonna make some of my own. I'm also thinking of adding some flourishes like paper flowers and pretty ribbon and chiffon braids. And of course, those will all be put up here for your crafting pleasure. I haven't started any of it yet, but I'm excited. I'm also a little afraid I won't be able to bring the visions in my head to life. We shall see!
