I'll try ...

It's a new year and time to try creating and crafting some items I've kept on my pin board for awhile. You can call these little ditties resolutions if you wish, but I prefer to think of them as creative outlets for the New Year.

 

First, I'll try to get my guest room in order. I'm determined to make my own tufted headboard. Somewhere between the tall, white leather and demure, golden miniature is the happy medium size I'm after. Images above via Elle Decor (left) and Alexandra Rowley (right).

I think I'll try my hand at melting crayons for artistic effect.

I'm going to try to keep my eye out for an old globe. Then, I'm going to paint it with chalkboard paint and doodle as I wish all the way from here to there.

Next time I give a gift, I want to try crafting a 'tea bag' gift card ... just because.

And, I think I'll try my hand at making luminaries from gourds before next fall arrives.

Those projects should keep me busy!
