Do you like to "do it yourself"?

Gold star if you can guess the movie where this quote is from. Anyway, being on a budget, and just having the DIY bug, I am always scouring the interwebs for new DIY ideas.  These are some of the things rolling around in my head for the new place and life in general.  Enjoy!

Hopefully some of these will be making appearances around here soon with all my "spare" time.  We did actually try a blood orange and tarragon cocktail over Memorial Day (I'll share recipe and pictures soon) and it was delish!  Now I want to try infusing those flavors into the vodka itself.  Any tips or tricks for liquor infusing?  Also any DIY's you've done yourself recently?
