I've got a bit of it to spare over the next 2 weeks.

For me, this means DIY Projects...
well, the beach... but we are going to leave that part out for now. :)

 There are so many great DIY ideas that I have stumbled onto lately- I cant wait to get to work!

PLUS, a friend of ours has asked me to design a room for them. EXCITING! I will definitely be posting some before and after shots once I dive in.

As for the DIY projects I plan on tackling over the next few weeks- check em out below.

An embroidered Map.


I love this idea.
We still have a blank slate above our bed... I had planned on doing a picture collage, but just haven't got to it yet. When I saw this I knew this would be perfect to throw into the mix. + I am hoping it will get me off my rear to finish that space!!

 I plan to copy cat this idea and place the heart around where M. and I are from, frame it, and hang it in with some other misc. framed DIY items, photos, mirrors, trinkets. 

A new wine cork dining room centerpiece.


I will finally get to put all of the wine corks I've been saving to use!
 I plan on picking up a few different sized hurricane vases, some cheap pillar candles, and a table runner. Cant wait to get rid of that fake plant that's currently on the table!

Since I have soo many wine corks I want to do a "Y" like this below. I'll probably hang it in the kitchen since its wine themed... but I think it would look good anywhere in the house.

Not sure how they did this but I'm going to see if our local craft store has any already cut out wood letters. I thought about stenciling on cardboard and using that as the base, but that might have been too flimsy to hang on the wall.... hmm. Maybe I'll jus lay it on the counter or place it above the cabinets.

Pix to come on all of these lovely DIY's. Hopefully good ones. :) Wish me luck!

Thanks to my g/f Tami @ Little Moments Like This for informing me on, so many great DIY ideas. If you want in on some check out the site. Super cute.
I also go to and for inspiration. Great DIY sites as well.

Hope you all are having a fab week!




I just love the idea of wine corks & the map. Please post pictures when you're finished.


Can't wait to see all the pics of your projects! The embroidered map is so neat.
