what i {wish} i made monday: a few of my faves

Just in case you're new here...every Monday morning, I post a project, or sometimes a recipe, or new design, but usually a diy {easy} project from my weekend.

I dreamt up a cute one to share today...Mark took over with the boys on Saturday afternoon so I could go grab the fabric at my local Calico Corners...and what do you know?  They no longer sell fabric out of the store.  That's right, they are a fabric store with no fabric to sell you.  If I was in a cartoon, there would have been a question mark over my head.  It turns out they have changed from being a cut-your-fabric-on-the-spot store to a custom-order-your-fabric-store.  So, I will be sharing my tutorial with you {in 7-10 business days when my custom ordered 3/4 yard of fabric comes in...sigh}

But, don't worry, I am not leaving you without inspiration today.  I figured I would show you all a few of my favorite tutorials from other talented bloggers.


How fun are these DIY Deer Heads from Danielle Oakey Interiors?


I looove this white DIY Sunburst Mirror project from Isabella and Max Rooms


And I ADORE this Magnetic Chalkboard made from a vintage mirror found on Craig's List.

So, there you have it.  Three fun projects, all of which I hope to make.

I hope I inspired you to start dreaming of a fun project!

Happy Monday, sweet friends!


  1. Dang, who would've thought that a fabric store would quit selling fabric?? I guess they are still selling it, but that is a pain!!

    I love, love, love that chalkboard! It is beautiful!

  2. I think I am going to do some sort of chalk board wall with a painted frame in my kitchen to write menus on. I do a lot of cooking and have a food blog with a little fashion and crafting in between.

    This is an easy cake we made for Ground Hog Day!

  3. really digging the vintage mirror chalkboard. thanks for sharing!

  4. Hello,

    Happy Monday!
    Love the project ideas. My favorite is the chalkboard.
    Thank you for sharing.

  5. The Sunburst Mirror is FANTASTIC! Now I just have to figure out if I have a wall with enough space for one.

  6. Oh my gosh, I want to make that deer head. One for me and one for my dad. Maybe one for my brother too!
