DIY Woven Pencil Pouch

I love back to school time. Loooooove it. “I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.” (First person who knows where that quote is from gets a fat ol’ virtual high five.) I have no school to go back to any more, and I don’t have […]

DIY Gold Pattern & Honeycomb Heart Gift Wrap

When the queen of DIY is having a bridal shower, you just gotta do a little something special to wrap her gift, am I right? I was so bummed to miss Kelly’s east coast shower, but I was so happy to have a chance to wrap up her gift in something unique (and inspired by […]

DIYs for HGTV

Happy Monday, lovelies! Dropping by this morning to share a couple of super-rad (tooting my own horn?) DIYs I did for HGTV’s summer how-to extravaganza. They’re both projects with techniques that I’ve been wanting to try forever but have been too chicken until now. And as it turns out, they were both totally doable and […]
