Thursday Home/Craft/DIY Miscellany

  • This article offers a great tip about not wasting time finishing books that you just can't get into. Clears clutter and saves precious time. Good thinking. While, I don't agree with "throwing the book out" as he suggests, I do suggest selling them online, putting them in a yard sale, swapping them, giving them away, or donating them to a library or library sale.

  • This is a totally cool idea for DIY shelving.

  • These "Don't Get Outta Bed" pants are pretty sweet (PDF download--you'll need Adobe Reader).

  • This Reversible Tank Top Beach Tote doesn't require sewing and is really cute. I have a Led Zepplin shirt that I bought last year online and it's too small. I think I might make it into this cute little bag.

  • This may be my weekend project. I have lots of hairbands that are brand new that I purchased right before I chopped off my hair. They will be perfect to use.

  • And now, for a couple of movie trailers that look kinda good.

    I've been wanting to read this book and now they're making a movie.

    Who doesn't love a good Bruce Willis movie? This sci-fi, dystopic thriller looks pretty awesome.
