It’s Throwback Post Day! This is basically our way of looking back at some of our older projects. And, thinking about what we could have done differently, remember the fun we had making them and where those projects ended up! I really enjoy doing this, as we get to share more about what goes into the idea, than just the tutorial. Here’s what I’m thinking about this month,

These checklists were a really successful post for us. It’s been a while since we put them up and I still see a constant stream of downloads from it. Which makes me really happy, because it shows that they were actually useful. Come to think of it, it makes my life easier too! I just used them 2 weeks ago when I went on a short trip!
I had the toughest time photographing these polygon danglers. We were moving houses when I was working on them and I couldn’t figure out a way to take good photos for them (plus I had just started blogging and knew nothing about photographs). So, I just gave up after a point and posted it anyway. That’s probably why I cringe every time I look at them! But, now that I think about it, it might actually be a lot of fun to make a whole wall of these. Right?
I feel like I’ve spent at least a week of my life making these mats. I’ve made more than 50 personalised ones with names, quotes and tiny details for different clients. And, I’ve always gotten good reviews on them. So, I feel it’s safe to say, that this idea was a success.
This is an easy peasy sunday brunch idea, that we’ve made a couple of times with a lot of different fruits. These particular ones are from a memorable meal, which we spent eating all things fruity. Though, I probably should have figured out a different ways to cut the fruits. It would have made scooping out the fruit much easier.
Real batik takes a lot of time to execute. So, we found this way of replicating it with ink and paint. And, I’ve got to say, this way is much simpler. We made a set of mats and coasters, which we then laminated and gave to my grandmom. It was a little more time consuming than I expected. But, the end effect was worth it!
And that’s all the DIY tutorials we wanted to talk about for this Throwback Post Day! Which of these projects is your favourite and what would you do differently? Let me know in the comments below!
