it’s been awhile

Alas, I return. Work has become insane the past few weeks leaving me working very late each night with no time to attend to my blog.

When I’m not working, I’m obsessing over which dSLR to buy. Friends let me tell you that I am so confused. I finally settled on a specific brand and model, but I haven’t bought it yet because I keep pushing off dropping that much money. I’m finally ready and went into Best Buy this past weekend when I was home. The person there was recommending another brand for consideration. Then I go to the Best Buy in Chicago on Monday and they are clueless. Then last night I went to Ritz Camera and they threw out a totally new brand into the mix. Holy moly! Decisions decisions.

I’m also completely obsessing over super geeky things like building my website and dealing with attempting to privately buy a domain name from someone.

The worst part of being this busy? I haven’t had any time to devote to figuring out my next DIY project :) I was on a hot streak for awhile. I think my next feat will be putting together my gallery wall. I purchased my frames MONTHS ago but have been waiting for my wedding pictures and a few canvases from my photographer to be supplied. Much of my placement will surround those so I can’t begin until I get those. Right now I have standard black-brown frames of all different sizes. I’m trying to decide if I should keep them the original color to match my dark furniture or paint them white or go for color with them. The natural colors of this one are pretty, but idk if I want to go with B&W images…

The second project I want to do, which is smaller, is to give my pillows a new look. I would LOVE to make my own pillows however it’s so pricey to do that AND will the fabric you select be your fave forever? I’m a girl of changing style so here’s a solution…

It’s a pillow cover that’s so easy to make it’s not funny. No sewing required :) You just need to know how to tie a know, which is outlined in the link below the photo. Super easy, super fun, super flexible, and hopefully super cost effective. You can use them on existing throw pillows or find super cheap pillows to use! LOVE!

What’s your next DIY?

Until next time
