Feeling Creative: Inspiring DIY’s

August 7, 2012

Even though we had an extra day tacked onto our weekend, I too feel like I could use an another day just to catch up! Brad and I had a great time in the city with the kids and it was so fantastic to just enjoy the beach and stroll around without any agenda or rushed itinerary. The fireworks were awesome on Saturday night and our kids were pretty amazed by the whole spectacle, especially by how many other tens of thousands of people were also enjoying the sight! Staying only a couple of blocks away from the water made it all sooo much better (thank you Mike + Julia!) and it truly felt like a mini vacation. We walked a lot and even did a little Aquabus tour of False Creek and I think we’re all excited to plan our next adventure in the big city! But these summer days are slowly ticking away and I feel like I haven’t even made a dent on any little projects or DIY’s that I’d planned to attempt. Here are a few that I would love to try before school’s back in session…

Now, I love Anthropologie as much as the next person and know that these bright hair ties aren’t technically a DIY but I’m thinking they should be. Not a sewer myself, I can’t imagine anything easier than picking some pretty coloured elastic up at the fabric store and tying a simple knot….voila! They’d make such cute gifts too, wouldn’t they?

I’m pretty sure that I’ll soon be sharing plenty more DIY’s related to my big announcement/top secret project/never ending cliff hanger too! Changing the subject (I know, I know), what did you get up to this weekend? If you’re in Vancouver, did you check out the big pride parade? We missed it but saw plenty of colourful party boats cruising past Granville Island! Hope that your week’s getting off to a good start :)

Love the homemade bubbles DIY. Staying by the water sounds pretty divine!

that home made bubbles sign is perfect. We made our own infused vodka for a party and its was so much fun.

Infused vodka? Sound delicious and dangerous! Hope you guys are feeling better :)

I bought one of those hair ties at The Cross last week and thought the same thing!
