i have not been able to post anything for a while

because i am in the middle of a painting for my art class.

i do, however, have a couple of things i’d like to share.

they may not be fine art,

but i am a huge fan of diy (do it youself) projects!

i am constantly finding things,

mostly on pinterest,

to make my home and environment a better, more stylish place.

a few months ago i found out about chalkboard paint.

one of the coolest things ever made!

i found a way to combine chalkboard with another one of my favorite things:

mason jars!

and this is the result:

it was super easy.

just buy chalkboard paint from your local craft store,

tape off the area you want painted,

and then slap on a few layers.

now, because i bought a giant package of mason jars

i had to find things to do with them.

while surfin’ the web, i found the idea to make a mason jar soap dispenser.

with a little help from my handy boyfriend,

this is how it turned out!

with a little help from some flowers

my next diy project:

halloween mason jars!

crafts by amanda has a tutorial on how to do these.

another easy and cute project

for my favorite holiday!

i’ll post photos when i finish these.
