6 DIYs to Try This Weekend


6 Weekend DIYs to Try

This morning, Jeff and I woke up bright and early because…its moving day! We got the keys to our new apartment and will start moving stuff over today… And then the movers come tomorrow to move the big stuff. I’m nervous, excited, and sad all at once. So, its a bit of a mixed bag of emotions today.

But feeling ALL of the feelings isn’t going to stop me from putting together some weekend DIYs to try. Priorities, right?!

Full Circle: The Definitive Guide to Circle Bags


Full Circle: The Definitive Guide to Circle Bags

The circle bags trend! Is it just me, or have you also been seeing circle bags popping up everywhere lately? I mean…EVERYWHERE. It seems like every brand on the planet has their own version, which means a range of styles, colors, price points, etc.

And since its kind of a must-have bag shape at the moment, I figured I might as well spend a solid five hours putting together a list of the coolest circle bags I could find. Kidding – it only a couple of hours. I’ve had a bunch of these bookmarked for months.

Apples to Apples: Apple Coleslaw Recipe (2 Ways)


A sweet and crunchy apple coleslaw recipe (two ways)

I’m a big fan of apples these days – specifically sliced apples with peanut butter, which I’ve been eating as a snack almost everyday at the studio.

In an effort to branch out of my typically snack though, I teamed up with Opal Apples, those golden color non-browning apples at the grocery store, to share another snack option that is giving my pb a run for it’s money. It’s apple coleslaw! You can eat it alone or add it to sandwiches (like my favorite BBQ chicken sliders). Click through for the recipes.

Behind the Scenes: Sneak Peek + Animal Geek


Organized chaos, with colorful prints, planters, and patterned boxes.

Over the last couple of months, I’ve had my hands in everything from bath salts to yarn weavings, traveled to South Carolina, California, and Texas, decided to move out of the only home we lived in since moving to ATL, and even started a new column that I’ve been meaning to for like ever.

Yet with all of those things going down, I haven’t shared a single behind the scenes photo since the new year hit. Oh, the humanity. 🙂 It’s not for lack of photos though. OH! There are photos! So, I’m going to unleash them in rapid fire today to get caught up and share some of the bts stuff that’s been going on lately.

Bead It, Just Bead It: A (Beaded) Monogram Place Setting DIY for Dinner Parties


Try this unique place setting DIY with some wire and painted pastel beads.

I think enough time has finally passed from the craziness of Thanksgiving and Christmas (yes, I needed multiple months to recover apparently) to share some entertaining and hosting ideas again, starting with this one for a DIY beaded monogram place setting because why the hell not. Amiright?

It’s true that place settings at small(ish) dinner parties are by all accounts pointless BUT they are a nice touch for guests and something like this will make them feel special. So I say, roll with it. You in? Let’s do this…

Just the Tip: Evaluating Your Work


Brittni Mehlhoff talks about objectively evaluating past work to get out of a rut, on Paper & Stitch.

‘Just the Tip’ is a new series that will feature just one tip on a new subject each month (or so) that I’ve found useful – topics will range from blogging to business to life in general. Hope you like it.

Toward the end of last year (right around the time I made the space-saving Christmas tree), I had a bunch of old projects printed and sent to the studio.

Which seems a little weird, now that I say it out loud. But I felt like I was starting to get into a rut and I wanted to be able to evaluate the work that I had done from that year in a more objective way. The idea was to have something physical I could pick up, look at up close, line up in a long row – to get a better understanding of what had already been done, what could use improvement, and what I should keep pushing.

Once everything arrived at the studio though, the photos just sat in a pile on my desk. For months. It is February after all and I’m just now writing this post.
