It’s been awhile since I’ve had a good compiled list of awesome DIYs!  I am always looking for fun projects to do, and have a few in the works (coming soon to you in another post this week). But first, let’s all agree 2016 was a CRAZY year in many ways….  but wasn’t that the original plan when we all launched the countdown on January 31st, 2015?!?! So…. WE DID IT RIGHT? We accomplished our goal, even with all the positives and negatives of 2016!

However, life is about balance. It’s not a continuous flood of rainbows and butterflies; it’s actually full of real life situations that are tough, not fun, and stressful. My hope is that you find inspiration in at least one project below to help get that creative juice going and help you feel excited, happy, and well happy.

Be inspired, love yourself. Sometimes we can easily get caught up in the stresses in life and forget to ‘stop and smell the roses’. Let’s continue to live mindfully and smell all the roses 2017 has to offer!!!
