Valentine's Inspired Chalkboard

Valentine's Day is approaching, and I wanted to do a few little decorative things around the house. This chalkboard is the first thing I did. I am no artist, but I am happy with how my first real chalk-art project turned out.

Thoughtful and Inexpensive DIY Present Idea


Here's a gift idea that would work for anyone. I bought a bunch of frames from the dollar store, spray painted them all the same color and filled them with photos of loved ones . They can be hung all together as a gallery wall, or set out separately around the house.

DIY Hanging Doily Lamp


 I actually made this lamp as a Christmas gift for my cousin, Alicia. I wasn't sure what to get her so I did some creeping around on her Pinterest and saw that she had pinned a lamp like this. It is a project that I have been wanting to tackle for a long time now and decided that this would be the perfect opportunity.  I did a lot of research before I started, took all of the advice I could find, and it paid off because this lamp turned out exactly how I wanted it to (I love when that happens). I ended up being easier than I expected too.
