I have loads of plain tops that could use with some frilly flair. Hankerchief becomes a frilly tie. Want to do it now.
I have an antique buffet that could use a facelift like this. Not sure if I would want to be the one to do it though.
make craft table out of recycled closet doors. we have some in the house that slide that I want to get rid of. I could paint it a fun color or stencil a neat graphic design on it.

Terra Cotta Pot Flower Tower with Annuals | World In Green Maybe I could use some of those zillions of pots I have in the backyard to do this!
LOVE THE DRESS AND THE POP OF COLOR FROM THE SHOES. HAVE A SKIRT WITH THAT GREEN/GOLD SEQUINS AND WONDERING WHAT COLOR SHOES I COULD USE TO DO IT UP!
I never know what to do with leftover strips of paper - and now I do! Use complementary colors of border paper, a stamped sentiment and some glittery rhinestones and you now have a cute handmade Christmas card!
Just did a bit of photoshop layering with a few images I gathered together from the net and came up with this sort of deer/mandala combination. Need to do some shading work around the edges and add some of the other things I want and I will have the finished design that I want tattooed on my arm when I have laser removal.
Really pretty---I have some jeans that are shredding, and a skirt I want to do some thing with. HMMM maybe a thought?
Sometimes the "I would love to: see that person, do that course, get that body I really want, spend time by the ocean or out in nature, travel to that picture postcard place etc" .... Becomes a distant memory. How sad is that? How sad it is to substitute the things you would LOVE to do, with the things you think you should do. Isn't it your time to allocate as you please? Why not invest at least some of it in what you LOVE?

CONTINUED= What do I think the problem...I think it might have something to do with a weakness in my lungs or chest....a while back I took some creatine and for a few days my breathing improved...but now I think I'm past that.. I did have a hiatial hernia before..but I assumed that was fixed....a positive mentality is hard to maintain but at least this wasn't of my choosing...I really wanted to succeed,
Usually, when you have a closet with a heater inside it, it becomes useless use of space. What you can do to make that space shine is change the door and create a bookshelf out of it! It’s an easy and inexpensive DIY project worth your time and money! You’ll be happy you did it afterward!

“My plan in life was to move out into the woods and make a lot of art and barely get by. I have always done photography. I have always painted. I have always made sculptures. I do it when the time is right. I try to take grotesque images in my art and make them pretty. I have tried to do the same thing with Daryl on the show. I didn’t want to play Daryl as an asshole. I wanted to give him some hope. I wanted to find moments where he could
Framed Recipes Mounted on Fabric... could use scrapbook paper instead. I have got to do this with some of my mom's recipes!
Use 3 to 5 tea lights under a slow cooker pot / crockpot to heat your room. APS: I have tried flowerpot, plantpot heaters and this is way better. Throws out a lot more heat, doesn't smell like some clay ones tend to do, plus you don't have to mess about with multiple pots or nuts and bolts. I used a small crock 1.5ltr which gave out loads of heat. Give it a try. You will be surprised how well it works. Ideal if you have power cuts / power outages.
sweet - I would love to do this little throw pillow for our bedroom... different colors, but I'm pretty sure I could do it with some scrap fabric that I have =)
cover old tables with fabric and use mod podge to seal. I have a table now that I could use this idea. Thanks!
Buy plates from Dollar Store Use a Sharpie and decorate...Bake at 350 for 30 min. Becomes permanent and safe - want to do it with quotes
I have cresent rolls in the fridge that I need to use and there always seems to be 1/2 a bag of marshmellows left after every s'mores event. Now I know what to do with them.
Painted mermaid’s net by Behr on the base and a brown with a black wash on the top. I didn’t bother sanding it down to refinish it since we have just added to its character with our own scratches. -- Idea from The Pleated Poppy Blog. I want to do this with the coffee table at Mom & Dad's that mom said I could have.

I have no idea how I could use this at my funeral. All I know is that I want it.
Simple outfit- LOVE!! Of course I'd rock some amazing jewelry with it ;) have I mentioned that I LOVE the benefits of being a jewelry lady? I do! I do! I really do!
so i went on amazon this morning and bought a load of plain white mugs for £9.99 cause i have been dying to make these personalised with sharpie mugs since the start of the year.. I am making loads for all my friends, but making it like a personal hamper. Each one has: a per of fluffy socks, a candle, a face mask pack and some chocolate. I am so excited for christmas! only 17 days to go!
Might be a good way to start the year (especially if you have a lot of new students). I would allow students to pick some (3, maybe) that they are willing to have shared. Then you could use it as an ice breaker also ~ Nice prompts for back to school.
Back To School
Gypsy caravan! I want one of these in my backyard. I'd probably have glass added so I could use it as a greenhouse. Maybe it'd just be a place for the kids to play. Either way: WANT.
Christmas Ornament Time Capsule. I love Christmas ornaments that have meaning and especially those that bring back memories from years past. Starting this year I plan to make an ornament time capsule of the Christmas Season. It's something easy to make right after Christmas is over, pack it up and enjoy it the next year & many to follow. You could have fun with it and do it a variety of ways. I chose to use glue, glitter & notebook paper this time around, I'm sure it will change each year.
Homemade no-cook playdough! Add a package of jello with the other ingredients for color. You could use food coloring instead, but I rarely make jello and have a lot of it sitting around, so I used that. Use a LOT of flour to knead it—maybe another two cups, even. Or maybe I'm doing it wrong . . .
Potting Bench! I have got to do one of these! You could even use it as an outdoor bar!
