Pinterest Challenge: Summer 2012 edition

AKA how I am a DIY poser!
I love Young House Love, and Sherry's collaboration with other bloggers to make the Pinterest Challenge happen is one of my favorite things. I have participated before (making leather accessories in March, and organic dog treats in November), and had such good intentions to come up with an even better project this time, BUT (you had to have known a "but" was coming)... life got in the way, friends came into town, the fabric store closed on Sunday... and I didn't "get around to it"... whomp whomp.
However, in line with my philosophy that if I post something on the internets it increases the likelihood that I will actually DO IT... here is what I wanted to make:
A fox nightlight for my nieces!
{Tutorial here}
So as it turns out, my nieces might be 14 and this thing might turn out to be the Quasimoto of foxes by the time I am finished... but I. WILL. DO. IT.

Have you been working on any DIYs lately?
I am going to head on over to the big Pinterest Challenge reveal to glean some inspiration, and you should too!

  1. I love that nightlight!! Such a cute DIY. I’m looking to move at the end of the Summer, which means i want to totally redo my bedroom. I’m looking into revamping old furniture with some TLC and love - definitely checking out pinterest for inspiration!

  3. What a cute, fun DIY! No, I haven't done any DIYs lately. (I have a list though!) There always seems to be something else to do though. I need a day to just CHILL and blog, work on projects, etc.
