March Wrap-up

Happy April!  I'm not much of a jokester, so I don't have any good pranks for the blog.  Not to say I don't enjoy a good laugh.  I'm just usually the one laughing, not making other people laugh.  :)  Anyway, I'm going to stick with my usual monthly wrap-up for March.  Here are ten of my favorite post from this past month. 

I made a few tasty things during March for Nom Nom Mondays.  I dream about this BLT Grilled Cheese Sandwich on a regular basis now.  I also made up Buffalo Blue Cheese Biscuits with random leftovers.  I cooked a savory Roasted Carrot and Pistachio Soup, mmmm.  

On the sweet side of things, I made this Berry Sweet Tea with strawberries, blackberries, and fresh lemons.  I also made a delicious Strawberry and Cream Muffin.  

I delved deeper into the world of outfit photos.  I celebrated St. Patrick's day with a green outfit.  

This outfit was super fun.  I love spring inspired outfits.  I did an excellent nail-do, especially considering how terrible I usually am at painting my nails!  

I tried my hand at taking a Photo an Hour for the first time.  I really enjoyed that project!  Maybe I'll even make two Photo an Hour posts for April!  I also shared a few kid pics, some self-portraits from college with 4x5 film, and my college prints from my printmaking classes.  

Aaron and I worked hard on preparing our new 4x4 raised bed for our little seedlings.  

I followed Martha Stewart's recipe for some super simple hand soap.  I also made some natural cleaning sprays.  

This is my favorite DIY this month.  I love these owl elbow patches, I've even gotten a couple sweet compliments on them too!  I showed how I organize my jewelry, and my stickers and stencils.  I made a spring inspired friendship bracelet.  

I spray painted this cheap boring wooden frame.  I made a hammerhead lino cut, made a simple print with it and a straw.  

I also made this fantastic rag banner, which could be used just as a spring decoration inside, or for a special party.  I also made a belated birthday elephant card.  

That's a fantastic overview of what went down this month on 365 Days of DIY.  I'm excited for April!  Aaron and I got married on 4/16/2011, and we had a bunch of handmade elements to our wedding.  I have some great DIYs planned to celebrate our anniversary.   Happy DIYing, chris!
