Welcome to DIY Salvaged Junk Projects 436
Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific
That’s a big saying with the locals in these parts where I’m currently hanging out. I’m not sure why, because every day you’re in Hawaii is worth celebrating in my option! 🙂
My apologies for not hosting a party last weekend. I pulled a spontaneous trip over to Hana for several nights and didn’t get home until late Friday when the party posts go live. So I just decided to give everyone a rest. (guilty as charged! I came out of a well worth it curvy-drive long-hike coma over the following 2 days!)
I honestly cannot wait to share some beautiful new sights discovered and brave new things accomplished!
I’m still uncertain how I feel about the coming-home part. Parts of me cannot WAIT to cuddle my cats and hit the bike trails and create new inspiring stencils and and and!
Other parts will mourn my surroundings that are as familiar to me as home itself. You mean to say I can’t float the ocean waves of that tropical blue water after my AM of working?! Whatever will I DO?! 🙂
Being that this was the last week of my stay, I decided to take on a small challenge I read in my new fav book Boundaries…(Amazon affiliate link) it was about how we allow social media to be chained to our hips with our online usage vs. living in the real world.
Pretty sure they are not exactly referencing those that use the internet for their actual workday. However, I admit, more times than not, my iphone is right beside me 24/7 and the moment it dings, I tend to respond.
The book reads that this is a BIG boundary issue today that tends to eat up a lot of physical and mental juice that is required elsewhere for more important real life things. So I decided to put online to rest for a spell and ‘be in Hawaii’ instead, delegating response times and not posting every single thing that I felt was Insta Story worthy. The move certainly opened up a whole slot of free time… hmmm…
I think there’s a time to work, a time to play, and a time to just live life in the present world offline just for you. As long as you aren’t a slave to one thing more than others, it should all work out. Do you give all these three equal time or tend to overdue one for another?
Ok friends, you know I have not been creating here other than taking pretty pics and learning to relive life offline again, so thanks for bringing over these beautiful features from the last party… hope to join you next round!
Susan brought a whole new level of ”kitchen-themed’ to this wonderful little shelf, did she not?! This is adorable, and super useful too!
I can’t even breathe… this lampshade is so scrappy boho-perfection! Really digging the exposed cord in the base too…
Dear Sarah, do you have any idea how many times I’ve wanted to create a first aid kit out of some super sweet vintage bathroom shelving I have buried in my stash? Countless! And there you go and just DO it.
Adore the super clean lines and yes, the graphics are everything!
Garden markers really can’t get much more charming than utilizing vintage pieces. And this version certainly does it for me!
Love how you can customize these.
Dear Lisa, please send this to…
I am loving the double layer of planting on this one! You get fill (bottom level) and thrill (top) all in one!
Ok, I think I have a vision on what to do to my own reclaimed garden fence now… because these wheel flowers are not only perfectly themed for the outdoors, they seem to pick up where a possibly flower-less garden may exist. Plus, you can’t kill these…
