5 DIYs When You Have No Time to DIY

Anyone else have a to-do list that never seems to end? I keep pinning cool projects and never find the time to actually do any of them. But these – a collection of 5 minute DIYs – are just my kind of project! I love a pretty & simple upgrade to an everyday item, like journals or clothespins. It makes them feel special, don’t you think?

And a few more links for your weekend reading!


I’m a bit head over heels with Madewell‘s new denim line. So many options!

How cute are these kids’ clothes by Minimal?  So glad to have found them on Penelope and Pip.


Since a girl can never have to many necklaces, I’m thinking of making this rope and chain one.

Perfect for the new school year, these snack bags are incredibly easy to make.

These braided cookies are the perfect treat for the pie crust lovers (like myself!)


I love the list of essential crafting supplies curated by Fabric Paper Glue.

Warning – these sweet motherhood moments on Little Miss Momma might make you cry.

      Glad to include your great post Mandy! I so want to make one of those jewelry stands – I always see random pretty plates at Goodwill that I want to take home!

    I was just browsing Craftgawker and clicked on the gift wrap by Creature Comforts and it brought me to this lovely blog. Oddly enough, I made the simple jewelry stand in image 2! Keep up the great work :)

    Love these links! Those washi tape journals are so cute and simple… I actually have some washi tape, just need to go out and find some journals! The pie crust cookies look delicious, but dangerous. :P Reading posts like the motherhood moments one makes me feel so lucky to be a mama! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Stephanie!

      So many fun things to do with washi tape – can you believe I’ve never bought any? Take away my blogger card, lol :) Hope you had a great weekend too Stephanie!

    I have a similar project to number 5 on my list for this weekend. I bought a big glass vase at a church sale during the week and was going to paint it so it’s not sea through but I’m going to try out covering it with rope instead.

    I just don’t even think about my “to do list” anymore……I figure it may lead to alcholism so I ignore it. Love anything with washi tape. Those notebooks are purrtty!

    Loving those keys! Pete has banned me from spray painting anything else though as he thinks i am addicted to spray painting so I’ll have to make them in secret ;)

    Thanks for the link love hon! Have a great weekend!

    Man, I’ve really got to get in on the washi tape craze. And those keys are darling. I collect those!

    I’ve also got some mini clothespins that I’ve got to put to good use. Hmmmmm….

    Have a great weekend Stephanie!!! :)
