This Christmas i have decided i want to take on a few DIY projects, normally i am so rushed around this time of year i dont take time to really get into the handmade side of things! This is going to change my friends!!
I thought i would share with you my top four DIY's that i will be tackling in the next week or so.
Whipperberry posted an adorable Snow Globe how-to which i am completely in love with especially since they are in mason jars!! I think i will add a few forest creatures (plastic ones..dont get too excited there)to mine and jumble them all together..Love!
I have lots of fond memories when i was younger stamping paper for presents with potatoes! My mother would get so tired of the constant whinging my sister and i would put her through during the holidays she would sit us down and let us go for it, it was always a win win since she would get crafted paper and we would be quiet for about an hour or so! I think this celery stamp idea is perfect..so perfect i cant belive i didnt think of this myself!! Geninne's Art Blog will give you a quick step by step on making it!
I desperately want to make these sprinkle filled baubles even though i am having visions of dropping one and forever finding sprinkles scattered through the house i am determined that i wont let my clumsiness get the better of me (better use a funnel) i mean come on! How cute are these?
DIY instructions can be found at the Little Gray Fox & Little Foto Fox Blog
This by far is going to be the DIY that is going to test my patience but i am so looking forward to getting stuck into it! Our front door already has a wreath but i want to make a special one to replace it! im going to weave tiny red baubles through it too (just a few) fingers crossed it turns out as pretty as this one! Easy Peasy DIY tutorial for the wreath below is HERE
So now i have officially committed to doing these DIY's i will be able to share with you my finished pretty pieces, i am starting the paper wreath this weekend and have just the book to do it with too! Fingers crossed!! If you are looking for more christmas DIY ideas have a look at THIS list wahoooo!!! 100 to choose from. Xx

Over the weekend i went to an engagement party in a cute little Marquee on a boiling hot day! I had a slight melt down while deciding what to wear and did the usual 100 outfits before i went with the first outfit i picked anyway, a cute top and skirt (the earrings are actually carved shell ships..love..).
Since it was in a park i went sans heels just to avoid sinking into the grass and making an embarrassment of myself (disaster averted)! It really was a lovely day and aside from a small self-induced champagne headache i think i pulled up pretty well.
I hope your week has been swell! we had our first taste of summer yesterday and im not quite sure im ready for the scorching heat yet! my poor pasty skin is struggling already, i am however getting excited about fresh fruit juices and finally getting some good usage of our pool! Cant wait!!
