Which is great if you live somewhere warm enough to wear a bathing suit during the winter.
For the rest of us, if we want warm winter clothes it’s recycling and DIY or die freezing time!
I am a necklace gal. I am a green gal. I am also a DIY gal.
That’s why I like Creative Green Living’s DIY Carved Stone Heart Necklace besides the fact that Carissa is an awesome blogger friend!
Carissa makes this cool project look like it was difficult and time consuming to do when it is surprisingly easy. If you can make four holes in a thin stone with a Dremel, you can do this project. Easy!
I think this necklace would make a great homemade Valentine’s Day gift. If you have a stone from a favorite beach or lake spot, that would make it even more meaningful. It makes me wish I grabbed a few stones from the beach during our last Put-in-Bay vacation. I guess that means we’ll have to go back someday so I can make Carissa’s carved stone necklace, right?

It took awhile to find curtains that work in my craft room guest room. Not only do I need to find something that works with the bright yellow walls but the curtains have to be long enough to hang from as close to the ceiling as possible to the floor.
Why? Because hanging the curtain rod at the ceiling opens up the room and makes it look bigger. If you hang your curtain rod just above the window it visually shortens the walls in the room. That’s why I always hang my curtains as high as possible.
That also makes it a challenge to find curtains that are long enough to hang from the ceiling to the 8 feet down to the floor unless I want to make curtains. Curtains are not hard to make but they aren’t my favorite project. I’d rather buy than DIY curtains because hemming a room full of curtains to perfectly matching hems is a pain.
Luckily the Scandinavian design gods smiled on me. I found a set of IKEA Langör Curtains that are plain enough to work with the bright yellow walls of the room and whimsical enough to fit in with the big toy artwork I put on my inspiration retro mod craft room mood board.
