Every year during spring/summer time I make a few changes to the house. You know just to spruce it up a bit maybe add some pillows, indoor plants mainly the accessories and little things but nothing major. As renters we always have a lot of restriction as to what we can do. Last year I was totally for the removable wallpaper ( there is a fun post on wallpapers right here ). This year I though about changing the window treatments. Today’s diy pom-pom curtain project is all about adding a different soft textured fabric to your homes with pops of summer colors.
Hey there! hope you all had a good long weekend. We went camping with a few friends and it was total fun! No internet or tv for two whole days.. more conversations, hiking, enjoying nature and taking it all in. That said it was a great getaway and I will soon be sharing a blog post on that with all the details.
Today’s post about DIY emoji summer tote bags is an extension or part two of last week’s DIY emoji snack boxes. Summer is here and so are the vacation times. You can totally jazz up your tote bags/ beach bags with these wooden emojis ( guest posted the tutorial here on lemonthistle.com). I’m also thinking fridge magnets, t-shirts, party invites and more.. let your imagination run wild.. The best part is I’m using velcro for the bags so that you can reuse them for other projects. Since they are made of wood they are durable and long lasting! super cheap too…
Share your projects pics on instagram with the hashtag ( #dfsprojects ) and I will be happy to share them here on the blog!
Have a great week ahead !

Hey you guys , here is another DIY inspired by a retro theme ! So far pastels colors and retro graphics have been the two things I’m totally into this year. Also, this can be great a theme for brunch party if you are planning to throw one this weekend for mother’s day ! Everyone can dress up in the retro attire too.
In the pics below you will see retro themed invites and profile cut outs which you could use on invitations, as place holders and as markers on stirrers. I have shown these three ideas below but you could use them in other creative ways too. And for those of you who don’t think they are good at drawing, do not worry. I’ve got you covered! At the end of this post you will find links from where you could download these for FREE!
Hello friends, its almost Friday 🙂 and Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Continuing this week’s mother’s day theme on designforsoul, today we are making a naked carrot cake with cream cheese frosting!!! yum. I know baking a cake for your loved ones is a cliche but common doesn’t it always work? Carrot cake is one of my mom’s favorite’s and although she stays thousands of miles away from me, I plan to show her the cake via skype this year.
Hey there! how’s the week going so far ? for me , its pretty busy . I’m planning on starting weekly columns on the blog, just to get some order and be a little consistent on the content. Also, its mainly for me and my procrastinating habit. I have to commit to myself before I commit to you guys, so wish me luck! Speaking of commitment, I’m sharing another project for mother’s day as promised. Today we are making DIY Mother’s Day Cards with pom poms y’all!
You could make them in a couple of mins literally. All fathers can make them with their kids. They are so cute I tell ya! I’m gonna mail one to my mom.
Hey there. How was your weekend? Mine was a little bit of work and a little relaxing time. So in all a pretty good one. I also made this DIY Aloe Vera face mask for myself. Which got me thinking that it would be a perfect Mother’s Day gift too! It’s super easy to make and you could also add it to a SPA gift basket if you are planning to give one . Just add a cute handwritten tag and voila! you have an excellent personalized gift ready. Don’t worry if you do not have an aloe plant, you get one very easily at your local grocery store. I was lucky enough to have one in my patio.
