Let's be honest: creativity often comes in spurts, and whaddya know, free time does too. In fact, for many of us, free time is in such short supply that when you get an hour you feel like screaming from the rooftops and making the most of every minute. Thankfully, there are tons of different projects you can make by hand in 60 minutes or less. Here are seven for you try.

l love a good DIY project just as much as the next girl. But a few years ago, I was craving a hobby I could also teach myself. And, preferably, teach myself while at home mindlessly watching Netflix. Brush calligraphy ended up being just the one!

Ahh, summer...full of late sunsets, flickering fireflies and backyard barbecues, where slices of watermelon are fresh and juicy.

No shame in grabbing a grocery store sheet cake to sweeten your next special occasion. But why stop there? It only takes a teensy bit of extra effort to spiff up an otherwise ho-hum dessert.
