DIY: upcoming home projects

Warning: this is completely unrelated to raw food ... sometimes I just want to be creative , yo'. 

I have been scurrying around during the daytime and collapsing into bed at night so I've yet to accomplish the many things on my ever growing To-Do list. Instead of admonishing myself for it and secretly resenting the fact that I'm happily busied each day, I decided to share with you my upcoming projects. Maybe you've seen them around the web or maybe you have other recommendations to make.

 Either way, I think we all have a lot to offer each other and this a great space to share our knowledge!

Magnesium Body Butter by Wellness Mama. This has been on my to-do list for quite some time. Magnesium is an excellent natural way to relax, is great for pregnancy, and helps digestion move more smoothly. Since we've had some pretty restless nights in our household I'm anxious to try this out.

Knitting. I've wanted to learn to knit for the longest time and I think it's the most usable hobby one can have. Plus, this blog (linked) has some pretty neat projects that I'd be so proud of if I had completed them! .. baby steps.


Homemade Hair Mask. I've used coconut oil as a hair mask in the past and I enjoyed it, though I found that it left my hair a bit limp .. I'm dying to find another natural hair mask that isn't oil based and is easy.


DIY Upholstered Headboard. I've been dying to revamp our bedroom for quite some time now and my husband will be traveling for work in a couple weeks so I'm thinking of taking on this DIY project while he's away .. imagine the surprise he will have when he comes home to a new bedroom!!


This is what's coming up in our household. What kinds of projects do you have?

  1. Oh my goodness I hope you complete each and every one of these things---you are wayyyyy craftier than I am (but that's not saying much since I'm seriously not crafty AT ALL). The coconut leave in sounds so nice! I've never actually used coconut oil, though I know many people do.

    1. haha! Thanks, I'll have to post my progress :) I'd like to try the leave-in, as well, because I think it'd be nice to find a balance for my hair that's not overly oily but still provides the coating. I'll report back :)
