Hey friends, I’m so pleased to publish the first ever #idlehandscreate! This is my chance to use my little old blog to show what all of YOU are making! Which means get ready for way more exclamation points because I am so wowed by your creations!


I know this looks deceptively like a bouquet of succulents, but these are actually edible gum paste cake decorations made by my irl friend Sarah. Find her @cakeztagram for more too-pretty-to-eat treats (like this ranunculus!).


There’s nothing more flattering as a DIY blogger than seeing you guys try my tutorials, and I just love the way @gilelizabethh’s little pineapple ring dishes turned out!


@isoscella proves that everything looks better with paint in her feed brimming with DIYs. I love this votive project on her blog, that she shares my love of copper, and omg this girl can paint!


Because whimsical doodles and quirky figure poses aren’t adorable enough, @rebelchallenger TAKES CARE OF WILD BIRDS. Like a real-life Snow White or something. !!!


@iamvantan makes gorgeous necklaces AND can paint her nails, two things I really wish I could do. Also, this puddle picture.


What are you working on this weekend? Tag your projects, DIY questions, and ideas #idlehandscreate to be featured! (Email and Facebook work too if you’re not on IG!)
