This is our weekly roundup of fantastic DIY projects from this month around the web and a sneak peek  of the coming month here on The Surrendered Life.

February DIY Roundup

Easy DIY Cone Pendant Lamp

Over at Design Milk, they have a fantastic tutorial on making your own pendant lamp that looks very IKEA.  And it looks incredibly simple.

Easy Homemade Butter . . . in a Blender

DIY Natural has a great and simple tutorial to make your own butter in your blender.  I have tried this with my Kitchen-aid, and let me say, it totally changed my view on the butter/margarine debate.  The taste was amazing!

DIY Natural Shaving Cream

The Mommypotamus has a natural recipe for shaving cream.  Making your own household and personal care products is a great way to save money and eliminate nasty, toxic ingredients.

Mini Tissue Holder

Make It and Love It has a cute mini tissue holder tutorial that I will definitely be adding to my to-do list of projects.

March Sneak Peek

After a lot of thought, I decided on two concurrent themes for March.

First, every Sunday, I will post a series called Get Your Garden On.  We’ll cover how to get a garden planned, starting seeds, and prepping your beds for this spring.  There will be some links out to some great sources, and probably some sort of post on how to use technology to help your gardening.

Second, starting next Wednesday, I want to do a series on Lent.  Even though I attend a very non-traditional church, I feel that some traditions are worth observing.  I will be focusing on repentance, self-evaluation, and preparing to celebrate our Lord’s resurrection at Easter.

So, stay tuned!
