How to Eat a Cupcake

I’m so sad right now! But not I’m-in-my-bedroom-crying-because-some-terrible-thing-happened sad. It’s more of a I-had-an-awesome-idea-that-someone-else-beat-me-to kind of sad. I had this post planned for the past couple of months and it was going to be awesome! But these folks beat me to it! That is how I eat cupcakes, and it is definitely the best way…

Bucket Hats Tutorial

Well here it is! I finally put together a tutorial for the bucket hats I have been working on for Laura. These reversible hats are given to cancer patients, and they area really easy to sew up. Once you’ve made one you might as well make a dozen. If you want to make some and…

Creative Procrastination

I have been so busy lately with freelance work that I haven’t had any time to do anything creative, in a hands-on sense. Sometimes when I get too busy, my brain just shuts down and if I don’t stop and make something, I get a little crazy. So the other night, instead of finishing up…

{DIY} Bird Feeder

We made this super cute bird feeder last night. I thought I’d share it as a mini-DIY. Like there aren’t enough bird feeder tutorials out there! Oh well, I think its cute. I was sick last week, and so I’ve spend the past 2 days cleaning my house back up. Fun, I know. Tonight I…

{Recipe} Smores Bark

We have had an unusually high amount of chocolate around here lately, with the holidays and all. After we made peppermint bark last week I was in a chocolate melting mood, and we had some mini marshmallows leftover from Juniper’s birthday party so I thought I’d make some smores bark! Seemed like a good idea.…

DIY Candy Cane Garland

When I saw this Candy Cane Bunting tutorial on Smashed Peas and Carrots, I was inspired to put together my own version with real candy canes. I just love how putting two candy canes together makes a heart. (Back to my heart-shaped obsession.) So here’s what you’ll need: candy canes, cotton thread, decorative ribbon or…

DIY – Framed Shirt Artwork

I was doing some thrift shopping the other day and I found this adorable shirt in the children’s section. It fit me, but really isn’t my style. I just had to buy it though, because it’s so true: I DO love skinny boys with glasses! (Well, one skinny man in particular ?) I decided I…
