DIY Weekend!

I had one of those weekends where I cleaned the house, listened to tons of old episodes of This American Life(If you haven’t listened to this show, you really have to!) and made things. I’m someone who likes to tinker and makes tons of mistakes, this weekend was fairly successful.

DSCF0429On my trip to Colorado I picked up some arrowheads at a little thrift shop, I ended up making some necklaces out of them. I thought they turned out pretty cute.DSCF0428I also finished this calendar that I have been working on for the last month or so. I used chalkboard paint around the outside and then hung laminated paper from the nails. Laminating the paper lets me write on with dry erase marker. Pretty excited to decorate for each season and holiday on this.DSCF0435

I also had a pair of shoes I picked up about a year ago and changed the fabric color to black; using an acrylic paint and fabric medium mix. I wasn’t wearing the shoes because I didn’t have enough stuff to go with them so the black and dark brown combo makes them go with just about everything!DSCF0436 DSCF0454

My weekend feels like it was a total whirlwind! San Francisco also had some great weather so I made sure to walk in Golden Gate Park on both Saturday and Sunday. This weather is amazing! I hope everyone had a great weekend!
