Make it Friday: Geometric DIYs and a Busy Week


This week somehow got away from me, as so many of them seem to do. After over a year of blogging, I still can’t seem to get the time-management down. Am I the worst blogger ever? (Don’t answer that).

I promise I am definitely, feverishly working on original DIYs and other fun bloggy posts. In the meantime, feast your eyes on these lovely geometry-inspired projects from around the webs.

I still haven’t learned to sew, despite wanting to for years! Maybe keeping this adorable geometric cactus pincushion by Delia Creates around would guilt me into finally tackling it.

Rugs are a challenge in our apartment because our cat Champ has awful dandruff AND is abnormally terrified of the vacuum cleaner (which means, messy messy rugs), but this painted geometric rug by Pretty Nice looks worth it to me.

Y’all know I love me a good DIY wall art project. Clad and Cloth’s easy geometric wood art is just what I’ve been looking for to liven up the bedroom.

Another project by new-to-me blog Clad and Cloth—geometric backpack. Shannon is obviously killing it with these geometric patterns. (Do I smell a new blogcrush?)

Is this the perfect pinboard? My pitter-pattery heart says yes. By Leelah Loves.

Amy of Homey oh my! is officially the queen of perfectly painted stripes. Her geometric mouse pad is too pretty for words.

Which of these projects is your favorite?

I’m cutting this short to go rescue my boyfriend’s brother whose car just broke down! What are you up to this weekend?

    1. Hi Lisa, I’m so glad to, it’s a super project! I didn’t realize your blog was so new–I found your rug on’s homepage as part of their featured projects, so you’re clearly doing things right! 😀 Also LOVED your neon cabinet table–I would love to see a full DIY of how you put the Ikea table + cabinet together! Thanks for stopping by!
