Happy Weekend + Handmade Soap

{Image via 100 Layer Cake}

Hello, darlings! Though I love a pretty picture as much as the next gal, I've decided to switch up my Friday posts a bit. Instead of simply wishing you well, I'm going to leave you (and me - us!) with a DIY project to start our weekend on the right note.

I don't know about you, but I often think about the balance I'm striking in my life between gathering inspiration from the internet (oh, such an endless treasure trove!) and gathering inspiration from the world around me - the people, places, and things I actually interact with every day. Oh, and sometimes attempting to translate that inspiration into something tangible. And then getting back on here and sharing it with you all. What a cycle!

Long story short: I really love weekends for the chance they afford me to get out and do things - things that just seem to fall by the wayside Monday through Friday. I hope ending the week on a DIY note will inspire us all to spend our time a little more intentionally - and a little more creatively!

Today's project is from the fab blog 100 Layer Cake. Y'all know I love preparing for guests; it should come as no surprise that I love the idea of stacking individually wrapped soaps in a guest bathroom. These would also make lovely gifts, don't you think?

Full instructions and more photos here!

Have a fantastic weekend, friends!

  1. You took the words right out of my mouth, with your note on finding balance. I looove finding all the inspiration online, but then I think I spend more time doing that instead of actually making my own. Thanks for the motivation :) I look forward to seeing the DIY projects you'll feature!
