Let me first start by apologizing for my lack of DIY-ing this past week. I’m sure I don’t need to preach to the choir here, but December has been crazy busy for me and I’ve had much less free time than I usually do. In my defense too, I’ll also say that I had to order materials online for 3 of my planned DIY projects and they’ve been trickling in throughout the week, so I’ve been on a bit of a hold until their arrival (Update: All materials for 2 projects have come in and I’m just waiting for my floating candles which should arrive sometime this week).
In the meantime, I’ve been working on doing some Christmas decorating around the house and even though they aren’t official DIY December projects, I thought I’d share a few photos:
My lovely orange slice ornaments. They look really cool when the light shines through them.
I had my mom gather some greens and pine cones for me from the Cape and I’ve been making little arrangements throughout the house.
The centerpiece on our coffee table. I got the mini tree from Trader Joes, too cute. Then there’s cranberries, holly, and pine cones mixed in.
Coming up tomorrow, I’ll be trying my hand at DIY laundry detergent and maybe even toothpaste if I have time.
