Cotton piping is one of my favorite supplies to use for projects because there are SO many things you can do with it. You can make jewelry, create a giant wall weaving, even a rug!

So, I rounded up my absolute favorite cotton piping projects for today’s post to give you some inspiration for upcoming DIYs.

Pastels + Peonies: A DIY Bridal Bouquet + Pastel Wedding Inspiration

I’m no wedding blogger, but I do have a little experience in that department – getting married almost eight years ago and also creating DIY projects for a wedding blog way back when. Bet you didn’t know that about me, did ya?!

So, when David’s Bridal reached out about working together on showcasing their affordable options for bridesmaid dresses, I thought it would be a perfect time to delve back into my DIY roots and dream up some DIY wedding bouquets while showcasing their collection. We all know I love a good bouquet DIY.

Textured DIY Planters Using an Unlikely Material

If you can’t tell, I’m pretty obsessed with unique DIY planter ideas at this point. I don’t know if it’s because its almost summer and I’m thinking about plants a lot more or if I’m just a teeny bit crazy.

But either way, I have another planter project to share today, and I think this is one of the most unique ones yet. Mostly because of the texture and the fact that one of the supplies needed is a recyclable material you probably already have in your pantry. Can you guess what it’s made out of? Click through to find out!

A DIY Flower Hat for Summer + Behind the Scenes of a Photo Shoot

Behind the Scenes of a Photo Shoot with Paper & Stitch

One of the interesting things about being a blogger is that you can kind of create your own rules when it comes to content. As long as your audience is up for the journey. If you feel like doing a room makeover – boom, there it is. If you want to make a pair of DIY work tables for your studio – no problem. And if you happen to want to stretch your legs in the styling department, you can do that too. Ah, blogging is fun. Isn’t it?

Since I’ve been working on the latter more and more recently, with some shoots more focused on fashion styling, I thought I’d share my most recent one. Which also just so happens to include another passion of mine – flowers! I teamed up with Uber, a ride request app available in over 500 cities around the world (that I use all the time), to share a behind the scenes peek at what I’ve been up to, and maybe (just maybe) I’ve included an obligatory flower shot or two.

How to Turn Any Bag Into a Camera Bag

Camera bags are a touchy subject for me. I’ve looked and looked and LOOKED for a cool bag that I don’t loathe carrying around. But I never found one that I like the look of AND can also safely carry my camera body and lens (meaning there’s some layer of padding / protection between my equipment and the bag itself). So, I decided to make my own.

I turned my fave mini weekender Clare V bag into a camera bag (that actually protects my camera and lenses). And I thought I’d share how I did it, in case you want to give it a try with one of your bags.
