My DIY

I'm always seeing these cute little DIY projects on Pinterest and there are a few that have really caught my eye!  I hope I can tackle these soon and post pictures (if they're presentable).

Card Keepsake
I still haven't done anything with our wedding cards 4 years later.  This would be perfect! 

Anthropologie Inspired Metal Letters
I love these letters at Anthropologie, but I don't want to pay $15 for one letter.  These are cute and cheap!  

Travel Memories
What better way than to remember a vacation that these cute shadowboxes?

Workout Shirt
You can never have too many shirts!  

I've seen these on etsy, but I could make these for the little bambino. 

Are there any fairly simple and fun DIYs out there that I should tackle? What have you made?

I love the wedding card keepsake and the travel memories!! The only thing I've made is the "I love you because" printable! I really want to do something with our sports tickets we've saved over the last 5 years! I actually have a couple of PB shadow boxes...

I tried the wOrkout shirt and it worke pretty well. Took a few times to trim the arms right but overall it was simple!

The travel shadow box is neat!

Also, the Container Store has some closet dividers for babies just in case you're not in the crafty mood!

I am working on a little card keepsake book for my little boy now. I thought I would start it with all our cards from his baby shower and birth and then keep adding to it as the years go by. I am planning on putting it next to his chair where we read at night and praying for the person that the card is from each night. I will post pics when mine is done soon! Love an easy DIY project!! These are great ideas!

I've done a few of the tshirt/tank tops for running and they have been wonderful! The only thing is the knot on the back bothers me in my back if I lay down afterwards stretching.

I saw those pins of the shadow boxes and made one for our last trip to SF and it looks great! You should try to make one!
