who’s guilty of pinning hundreds of craft ideas, recipes, & life hacks but not put any into practice? i was, so it makes me feel pretty smug that i’ve actually starting actioning some of my pins & i thought i’d share some that turned out well (nothing has been worthy of inclusion on a fail round-up, so far!):
jars with animal lids: we went for dinosaurs!
jars as make up brush holders: surely the world’s easiest ‘diy’
make your own bike streamers: these make me smile so much
floppy disk plant pot: ours is used as a pen holder
flower pressing: an oldie but a goodie
lemon & honey face mask: a saturday morning post-pancake ritual
how to paint your nails properly: once mastered, a real
jam tarts: who doesn’t love jack monroe?
irish soda farls: so good with butter & jam
spinach, avocado, goat cheese grilled cheese toasties: we add parma ham too
one pot pasta: perfect for the evenings when you just can’t be bothered
how to wear in new shoes, quickly: vital for life
rubber bands for stripped screws: handy for those who just don’t get flat-pack instructions
wardrobe dividers: mine say ‘coats’, ‘shirts’, ‘skirts’, etc. (did someone say anally retentive?)
organising bedding sets: hardly exciting, but useful all the same
how to pour from a carton: who knew we were doing this wrong?!
