My goal this year is to finish at least *one* long term project that I’ve had sitting around for years. I’ll usually pick up one of these projects, work on it for a week, then put it down for the rest of the year. I never understood why us crafters have certain projects that we can’t seem to get through until an ungodly amount of time has passed. They aren’t super large projects either – I guess we get a bit bored and want to cast on (or start) the next thing.
I’ve long been obsessed with organizing and list making and lately I’ve been feeling that my old system just wasn’t working for me. I was using a combination of paper to-do lists and computer apps and felt like everything was too scattered and I was double booking myself and forgetting events.
Then I started seeing the word “filofax” and the cutest planners all over the Pinterest and Instagram. Finally, after ready a post on one of my favorite blogs, Claireabellemakes – I finally decided to spring for my own.
I’ve always loved the idea of have a big floppy sun hat, but could never find one with a fabric band that I liked. I found this wild print hat at Charming Charlies for $20 and thought it would be a super easy project to rip off the leopard print band (ugh!) and replace it with something a little bit more “me”. Turns out I was right – it only took me about an hour to do, mostly because I had to iron my fabric a few times and figure out how to make the proper bow for you guys.
I’ve recently feel in love with Mid-Century Modern dressers and have been looking for the perfect one for my bedroom under this TV nook.
