How To…

“Without inspiration, we’re all like a box of matches that will never be lit.” – David Archuleta

My happy place is smack dab in the middle of a craft store — with a coffee in-hand of course – strolling through aisles of supplies, dreaming up fresh ideas and creative ways to use all of those beautiful products. Bonus points if I can eat what I make too! Join me in the craft room or the kitchen, this maker’s gonna make! And hopefully, inspire you to light your own match.

Mess-free watercolor Easter eggs

Mess-free watercolor Easter eggs

Decorating eggs is a mess. Easter eggs and stained hands go hand in hand, right? Whether you’re dyeing real eggs with food coloring or you are decorating fake eggs with decoupage or paint, or my favorite, alcohol inks. Is there a CLEAN way to decorate eggs? Is there a...

How to make geodes

How to make geodes

My girl likes to give homemade, crafty Valentines each year. This year, she announced that after she retires from the US Women’s National Team (soccer), she will be a geologist, so *of course* she wants to give geodes for Valentine’s Day. I’m like, “GEODES?...

How to make adult whipped coffee

Recipe for Dalgona Coffee I’m all about recreating coffee house specials at home, so here’s one you’re going to put on repeat. Bonus in that you can buy the main ingredients for less than your VSCO girl latte. Most commonly known as “whipped coffee,” (and let’s be...

50th Birthday Party Planning

Post sponsored by Jason’s Deli. All opinions are my own. I keep having this conversation with other married friends, about how the universe matches us with someone who can be so opposite to us in so many ways. I love my husband but we are very different in many...

Breathe

Breathe

I found this Valspar milk glass spray paint at Lowe's and was dying to try it. I wondered if this could even hold its muster compared to our antique milk glass. So I grabbed a couple of bottles from the recycling bin and soaked the labels off. (Such a pain.) And...

I bought these funky little doo-dads when we moved into our first house way back in 2000. I set them out on the display shelf above the cabinets in our bathroom and forgot about them. No one ever saw them but us and I probably only dusted them once. I wasn't in love...

The chalk paint beast

The chalk paint beast

My list of chalk painting projects is NOT getting any shorter. It feels as though I always have a piece or three that are “in progress.” It’s my own doing. When we built our house, I convinced myself it was an ideal time to lighten up the office furniture with a chalk...

There’s something about a dazzling crystal chandelier that makes my heart flutter. I get all gah-gah when I see the sparkly rainbow that it throws against the wall. Add something unexpected like wrought iron or a splash of color and I’m a goner, totally mesmerized. I...

Our new home!

Our new home!

I made it. I survived our entire family being sick the week before we moved. The week designated for packing -- which did not happen. Much. I survived the move while having no voice and green gunk oozing from my sinus. I survived my computer melt down the following...
