Instagram

It’s not much of a secret that I am obsessed with Instagram. I’m a bit late on the bandwagon since I’ve only had a smart phone for a couple of months now, but I love how easy it is to document bits and pieces of life. I love taking pictures of projects that I’m working…

DIY Glitter Tattoos

**Update** I think this should be obvious, but I figured it would be best to put a little disclaimer up here since this post has been getting a lot of traffic lately. Basically – don’t be an idiot. Use a non-toxic glue stick (Do they even make toxic ones anymore?), don’t put the tattoo on…

A Drawing for Kristen

I just finished a new drawing! The beautiful Kristen sent me this photograph a million years ago and I am so glad that I finally found some time to get around to it. I love Kristen’s hair. Seriously, it’s always perfect! (I definitely have bangs envy.) And it was fun to draw. I hope you…

365 Days Outside > 239-245

Day 239 It was long dark when I got home from work today, but Juniper and I grabbed some flashlights and went exploring outside. Juniper filled a bucket with various findings and when we went back inside she decided to paint some rocks while I played with leaves. Day 240 Another day of not getting…

Halloween!

Like most little girls, and lots of grown men, Juniper is quite obsessed with My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. As soon as I saw this ridiculously awesome Rainbow Dash costume on craftiness is not optional, I knew Juniper needed to be a pony. And since Flynn made a perfect little sidekick, we went with…
