DIY Plans

Tim and I are in the middle of buying a house and I am sooo excited!! I have been scouring Pinterest and blogs looking for DIYs. Buying a house is expensive enough, not to mention we need to buy a lot of furniture - we decided to leave behind the college furniture.

These are four DIYs that I will definitely be doing!

I love the hanging plants and shelves for plants, because our cats looove to eat plants and knock them over. Plus, with the house that we're looking at there are perfect windows for both of these. The measuring cups are something I would do now if I wasn't moving. I do not liking digging in a drawer for that one teaspoon that I know is in there. And finally, those bookends are the definition of shabby-chic. Bookends that will actually hold up books, what a novel idea. (hehe pun intended!)

Oof. These words hit home right now. I'm so close to graduating, the only thing left is an internship this summer. The step between school and a real job feels like a leap - hence the quote. However, I had my senior show, which means my portfolio is complete and printed as well as online (you can see it here!). I feel so proud of that!! I have already started mentally editing it and there are some pieces I'd like to see go, but I know that will probably always be true. For now I'm letting it be while I hunt down a job.

I hope you all are enjoying the spring weather. Spring always makes me clean and purge lots of stuff I don't use and I'm especially loving that this year.

Today I'm feeling pink and dreamy... aka girly.
On another note I'm getting really annoyed with text becoming blurry and pixel-y when I save as a jpg. hmmm...
