DIY Medal Sign Display

I'm back with another project!  It's been a couple of months since my last post, but I haven't forgotten that I'm making an effort to post over here on the Blog more often.  I've actually been very busy with DIY & projects - just a little slow with getting back into the habit of writing and getting the posts back together.

Today, I'm sharing a project that is super easy, but one to also be very proud of!

Copycat Dole Whip (just like at Disneyland)!

I'm back!  See - told you I am trying this time.  haha
Today, I'm sharing a Copycat Dole Whip recipe, similar to the famous Dole Whips at Disneyland!  It's actually more of a smoothie that soft serve, but tastes a lot like the real deal.  Also, it was super easy to make!

Hello, Again!

Hello!  Long time, no post!


It's been about 3 1/2 years since I last posted and that year I only posted a few times.  I had taken a break from doing DIY projects and life got busy, so blogging took a back seat.  I often missed writing and doing projects, but lacked motivation when I had any down time.

Now, with this pandemic & "stay at home" orders happening, I've had a bit more time.  Fortunately, I'm still working full time.  I've been working from home for 4 years now, so that is not new for me.  But, staying home all weekend is. There have been some projects that I've been wanting to do for awhile now, but was lacking the time.  Now that I'm home a lot more, I figured this would be a good time to get started on some of them and get back to sharing here!

We've been sheltering in place for about 7 weeks.  I've had bursts of energy & motivation, so I'm glad to say that I've managed to get quite a few things done.  I've also had some bad days and you know what? It's ok to take a mental break and just relax and press the reset button.

I will be making an effort to post here more often whether it be about DIY, crafts, Disney, and (once we're back to a new "normal") travel and other fun things going on.  I am active on Instagram, so if you'd like to follow along over there, just click here: Adventures in DIY Shop.

In the meantime, how are you all doing?  I hope you've all been doing well in the last few years and especially lately with these crazy times we live in.  Drop me a comment and let me know how you've been and what you've been up to - I'd love to hear it!

Mickey Snowman Faux Snowglobe

I've made a few of these faux snow globes in the past - they are just so darn cute!  My latest version happens to be Disney related.  Shocking, I know.

Adventures in DIY Has a Shop!

Hey there!
I'm hoping to get back to DIY'ing & blogging on a more regular basis soon, but in the meantime, I wanted to share some exciting news.  I have opened up a shop on Etsy:  Adventures in DIY Shop!  It's something that I've been wanting to do for a few years now and it's finally up and running!

If you've been reading for awhile, you know that I'm a big Disney fan.  Actually, to be precise, I'm a big Disney parks fan.  Being a Disneyland annual passholder, I go quite often.  I started making mouse ear headbands to wear to the parks and decided to start selling them as well!  I have some ideas for other items to sell also, but until those ideas go through development, I'll be selling just ears. for now.

Please feel free to check out my shop at the link above.  My shop's main social media account is on Instagram (I post more frequently there), but the shop is also on Facebook.  I also share pictures of my Disney adventures on Instagram.

Nightmare Before Christmas Man-Eating Wreath

If you've ever seen "The Nightmare Before Christmas", then you probably know what the Man-Eating Wreath is!  I've been wanting to make this for a few years now and finally got around to it!

Disney Princesses Zippered Pillow

So, I was originally supposed to share this post several months ago, but kind of forgot.  Oopsie.  I have been trying to learn more sewing techniques and this one might be a game changer - sewing with zippers!  I made this Disney Princesses pillow for my niece for her birthday and she LOVED it!
