Are you as ready for Spring as I am? The weather here in the low lands really has us guessing what’s next. After downright arctic temperatures that had many skating on the canals and open waters, within a week we had double digits Spring weather. And now that we are all contemplating putting the winter coats away, apparently the frost is coming back. I am so over it!
But I have been keeping myself nicely busy. Nursing not one but two colds, starting up a bit of an exercise regime again to get fit for the good weather months, working on not one but two rooms in my home that are now almost ready and close to blog reveal time, removing loads and loads of ivy from my house and garden, making plans for the professionals to come in and save this disaster of a garden, working at the grown-up job and hanging out with my man.
Busy, busy. And last but definitely not least I had a little crafting fun day with my big sis.
Totally up with the times we had ourselves a little macrame fun. A first time for me, my sister remembered the good old days when this was hot the first time around. So she taught me the most basic knots and then we were off. I had spotted beautiful macrame jars at Pinterest, and they were my inspiration for this simple version. We only used regular knots and one macrame knot that everyone can make, the square knot (youtube is full of instructions for them). It was so fun to do. Kind of addictive really, so I see a few more macrame projects in my future.
We are still on winter time over here, so nights are still dark and often a bit dreary. Of course that is just the best reason to light candles, a lot of candles. And these easy diy macrame jar lanterns add just that bit of extra to my boho living room that I love.
Have you done any crafting lately? Into this newest macrame fad, and do you remember the last one?
