Weekly Inspiration- DIY Projects for the Long Weekend

It’s been awhile since my last weekly inspiration post! I’ve been linking up in so many great link parties (which you can see in the right hand column of my blog), have found so many great projects and have pinned a ton of them to Pinterest.

We have Victoria Day long weekend in Canada this weekend so I thought I would supply you with some great DIY projects so you can get your craft on this long weekend.


I’ve been wanting to test out some new yarn to see if it’s appropriate for a granny square blanket. I really love the idea of making one huge granny square but I want it to be able to fit on a bed so I’m not sure a big square is the way to go. I’m excited to try out this Granny Rectangle Pattern from Crochet Again Blog to see how it turns out.

I think this granny rectangle blanket from Little Z Handmade is beautiful, but the tutorial is in Dutch. I think the results from Crochet Again will be very similar.


Bean had kindergarten orientation this week and kindergarten fashion is at the top of my mind right now. This I-Spy Patchwork Skirt from Helping Little Hands would not only make quick use of my fabric scraps it’s also just sew cute!!!


Crochet has been my craft project of choice lately. I find it so calming. These crocheted slippers from Whistle and Ivy look so comfy. I also love her color choice and the flower that she added.


Or if baby booties are more your style she also has a pattern for baby booties, Bethany just asks that you donate $1.00 to help her friend’s daughter Brylee who fighting an inoperable brain tumor.

lemonade recipes

Two of my girlfriends and I are planning a long weekend, summer getaway with our families for the end of June. Summer is at the top of my mind as is what we will eat and drink while we are away. I think I may have to test out a few of these 30 Summer Lemonade Recipes from Artsy Creations. 


I’m also going to try out these Fruit Flavored Water recipes from Sweet Little Gals. Yummy.


I picked up some washi tape recently from Pick Your Plum and I have no idea what to do with it… It was just so pretty I couldn’t resist. This morning I spotted this list of 100 Ways To Washi on A Night Owl. I am going to explore the list this weekend.

I also hope to get my new summer front door wreath made up this weekend… but more on that later!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! What are your weekend plans?

    Thanks so much for the feature! And I think I’m going to have to check out those lemonade recipes. My oldest wants to make lemonade just about everyday.
