Wednesdays are wild and wacky days. They are for communication, change, cunning, and the arts. This is a Mercury day, and just its patron god this day is full of contradictions, change, and excitement. Some suggestions for Wednesday enchantments would include:
Pulling a little Wednesday color magic into your life by wearing purples or orange
Add some digital love to your valentines with these cute DIY pixel heart clips! ❤ Tutorial at bit.ly/PixClips + be sure to check out the rest of the videos in the collab at the end for more Valentine’s Day inspiration!
Another new year, another opportunity to incorporate self-expression, creativity and mindfulness into your daily routine. You don’t have to be a professional artist to reap the many benefits of a little arts and crafts. Simple activities like coloring, doodling, and playing with clay are known to decrease anxiety and boost mood.
((Because I respect Toby and his policy of not selling fan art, I thought I’d let everyone have my papyrus pattern!! Feel free to make them! Just please, don’t sell them! It’s really fun and easy to make, and who knows, making one for an undertale fan is a great Christmas gift!))
Make this beginner queen size DIY Rolling Bed Table for under $25. Bonus: there is no need for a saw if you get the wood cut at the store.
Do you love to work or read in bed? Me too! This fun piece of furniture should help you do exactly that…and then roll it away while you sleep! This project is really simple and can be modified for an even easier build if you don’t have access to a saw.
The Design Confidential blog always has the best free plans for furniture you’d actually really want to put the effort into making. The tools, materials and cut list are always extremely clear and thorough. As usual, I always suggest looking at the comment section for suggestions and answers to questions you may have.
“Oh crap one of my BFF’s birthdays is coming up but I dunno what to get them and I’m also broke af, what do I do?!”
WELCOME TO PRESENTS ON A STUDENT BUDGET BY ANDY: This is legit an ideal gift for one of your close friends, especially if they’re at college and you don’t get to see them as often. It’s super easy and this cost me, like, £4 to make? And that’s when I bought all the materials - if you already have paper/jars/beads etc at home it’ll be even cheaper. Maybe it will cost you nothing!
Get some coloured card and scalpel it into smaller pieces. Personally I like rectangles but hearts/circles/whatever work great too.
Find some nice inspirational quotes about things, especially ones that are encouraging! Get a good range, from ancient proverbs to philosophers to modern-day authors and fictional characters from your favourite animes haha.
Write these really nicely on your little bits of card, fold them up and put them in the jar.
Add in a bunch of sequins/beads/paper flowers, put the lid on and shake it so everything mixes together.
Loop a ribbon round the neck and tie a nice bow. You’re done!
Tell your friend that they can keep it on their desk and pick something out of it whenever they’re having a tough day or need a small pick-me-up. This is honestly one of the easiest and most thoughtful things to do for someone and when they’ve gone through everything they can keep it/use the jar for storing other stuff. You’re welcome, now go make some nice presents for your friends without breaking your bank!
