My Living Room Decor! How Have I Not Shown You This Sooner?

While I have been dragging my feet for a long while on sharing my living room decor, a big THANK YOU to Minted.com for providing the geometric heart custom art for this room, and giving me the motivation I needed to write a blog post! Opinions are 100% my own. We moved into our new house over a year ago, now and my living room was the first room I painted and completed. I’m not exactly sure why I haven’t shared it sooner, but I guess better late than never! To start, my new favorite part of the room is my...

5 Minute DIY Tissue Garland

5 Minute DIY Tissue Garland

This year I committed to not going overboard on Valentine’s Day decorations. In fact, I tried to only use what I already had on hand. But when I saw some super cute Tissue Tassel Garland at Target, I was seriously tempted. But for $10, it just didn’t seem worth it. Like a good DIY girl, I instead decided to make my own DIY Tissue Garland for less than $3! I should also tell you that I plan to use all these decorations for Lucy’s upcoming 5th birthday party at the end of January, so it’s a win-win! DIY...

Handmade Holiday: DIY Hand Warmers with Essential Oils

These DIY Hand Warmers with Essential Oils are the perfect Homemade Holiday gift as the cold approaches (or maybe it has already found you)! They are inexpensive, easy to make even for this novice sewer and use supplies found in most homes. I made a bunch for myself and some friends, then saw a friend at the bus stop who made one for her daughter to hold in the cold. I felt a little bad that I didn’t even think of my kids. haha From now on, I’ll heat up a couple extra DIY hand warmers for the girls to hold...

DIY Essential Oil Diffuser Necklace

I love my Young Living Essential Oils. Seriously, I’m a bit of a junkie. I’ve made a few DIY Essential Oil Necklaces over the past year using leather in lockets. But recently, a friend of a friend, Erin heard that you can use lava beads to diffuse oils. I was a bit skeptical at first. But honestly, the lava beads worked even better than leather! All credit goes to Erin. I will forever be grateful for the diffusing jewelry possibilities that are now open to me! woot.  New necklace, new glasses,...
