I find that soapmakers are a creative bunch. That’s usually why we start doing this, because we just like to make stuff.
So today I started thinking about all the kinds of stuff that I like to make:
Granola, it turns out, is so easy to make, tastes better than stuff in a box, and the kitchen smells great when I make it. Score! This is currently my favorite granola recipe, but search around: there are probably thousands online. I also make my own yogurt. Together? Heaven!
I made these jam jar terrariums almost two years ago. And they’re still going strong! I just clip them back a bit as they outgrow the jar. They still brighten up my windowsill.
Our home has a long hallway that gets a lot of traffic. When stuck for how to decorate it safely, I took an idea I saw on Instructables.com and used it as a way to put up photos that was not your usual picture frames. I love taking a moment on any given day and really noticing one of the photos.
And I’ve tried my hand at many of the textile arts: knitting, crocheting, sewing. But my favorite by far is quilting. This is my latest, a baby quilt for Lori Nova Endres of The Nova Studio. I don’t have too much free time anymore to quilt, but I so love doing it. Thanks, Lori, for having a baby so that I had a good reason to make a baby quilt!
Do you have the DIY bug, too? What do you like to make?
