This weekend was the first in months that we had the weekend to spend at home (insert celebratory emoji here ** wahoo)! So we decided to tackle one of the items on our long to-do list – shelves for the kitchen! I originally was interested in using strips of cowhide and a wood plank like you see here, but decided that it wouldn’t go well in my all white kitchen & possibly wouldn’t hold as much weight as we wanted. So we’ve

I’ve developed a slight obsession with succulents this year. I’m not exactly sure why, but it could be from unsuccessfully starting a garden in the fall (my townhouse just doesn’t get enough sunlight!) or just the fact that some combination of succulents can look absolutely gorgeous and require very little attention to maintain. There are so many varieties of succulents and countless ways to display them. Below are a few that gave me inspiration on how to display mine. This,

It’s that time of year again! Love is in the air, stores are stocked with candy, and little kids hearts are pounding while they decide on which valentine card is p-e-r-f-e-c-t for their crush. I’ve never been the one to go ‘all-out’ on Valentine’s day but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy some great valentine themed crafts. I’m excited to grab only an appetizer and a dessert (we’re crazy! I know!) this valentine’s day since I don’t think I can

Valentine’s Day Printable Back in the fall I spray painted some gold frames and put fall leaves in them. Well, I wanted to be able to reuse those frames all year! Over Christmas I snagged a Christmas printable online and replaced the leaves with some cute holiday cheer. For Valentine’s day I thought it would be cute to have those sweet heart candies as a picture in the frame, so I set out to make some! Here’s the link to

Paint Dipped Chair Legs I bought a table on craigslist a few months ago. Just a simple white table that I knew I’d add my own creative touches to. I’m eventually going to re-cover the seats. For now though – just putting boots on chairs! This is a super simple craft and requires only a few materials. In fact, I had all of the materials around my house and didn’t have to spend any money – I love free crafts!

These are a simple and quick craft to give as a gift or to add to your own collection of coffee mugs. I’ve actually had these mugs for 5+ years, I picked them up at T.J.

So I had to share something pretty awesome with you guys. If you don’t know already, part of my job is to manage businesses social media accounts so I use this as my excuse to be on top of the latest social media trends. The most recent one I stumbled upon today was on Mashable which had a video that linked to GE’s #3DPrintMyGift tumblr page. I like to take part in these types of things to further research the
