8 Gorgeous New Ways to Make Easter Eggs

One of my earliest Easter memories is watching sharp pins being delicately pushed in the ends of an egg and then being shown how to carefully blow out the whites and yolk.

So, the hubster and I finally nailed down our travel system choice. (We went with the Evenflo FlexLite System in Santa Fe Sunset by the way and we're stoked with it so far!)

So when I came across the cotton material that I used to make our car seat canopy in Joann's Fabric, I just splurged and went for it! ...more

Can't Make Your Own Curtains? Hack Them

While curtains are easy to make, for someone like me who is not great with a sewing machine, sewing my own seems a little intimidating. While I'm sure whatever I made would look fine, I would forever see any teeny-tiny imperfections I made on the seams. Perfectionist? Me? Sadly, yes. Then I started thinking -- if I can't make them, maybe I can hack them? I found some easy modifications that can take curtains from drab to fab. Change Tab Top Curtains to Pocket Curtains...more

How to Make Paper Beads From Pages In Your Art Journal

I have wanted to try my hand at making paper beads for a very long time. I have seen them made from paint samples, newspaper, junk mail, and more.

I have so many beautiful pieces of this kind of paper that it was high time I showed them off. ...more

I think I promised you back in June or July of last year, after we moved into our new home, that I would be decorating my new studio space and planned to post pics for you. Well life, school, being a mom, painting bedrooms -- basically putting the right priorities first -- bumped this project down a ways. In fact, I just did it in February. I used gift cards I received for Christmas and planned and designed my new office! ...more
