If you haven’t picked up your copy of the latest issue of Martha’s fabulous weddings magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, maybe a peek at what’s in store will help you brace the winter winds and scurry over to that newsstand…
Of course, the first section to which I always flip – without fail – is DIY Style. Verdict: I can promise you that it’s a winner in this issue. The DIY projects Martha features are quite often utterly amazing, and the current issue is no exception. In fact, I’d like to get started on a few of these IMMEDIATELY, but I can’t get myself to stop staring at the photography. I love pretty colors and tiny details, so mine eyes have seen the glory and my pupils are dilated to the breaking point. Kudos, Johnny Miller. What lovely work you’ve done here.
My favorite project? Oh, I’d love to tell you, thanks for asking! Right off the bat, I was drawn to the jewelry box that involves repurposing your ring pillow. It’s so simple, so green, and so perfect for bringing a bit of your wedding into your everyday life! That’s how I define a great idea.
Of course, you’ll have to wait until after your wedding (rough, I know), but it’s such a smart, beautiful concept that I think it’s worth putting on that post-wedding To Do List, don’t you? All that’s needed to craft up this little homemade jewelry box is a simple wooden keepsake box, like this one, suggested by Martha. Plop in that already beribboned ring pillow, and presto! Too cute. Have fun!
