Houston! I’m coming for ya…

I’m so excited to announce that I will be hosting a DIY home decor workshop in Houston next month, with my good friend Ashley of Sugar & Cloth.

The two of us will be teaching attendees how to make 5 different home decor items (just like the ones in these photos) that you’ll take home at the end of the workshop. DIYs include: how to make a retro wall clock, a DIY pendant light (from scratch – how to wire / assemble, etc), patterned linens, cool stone coasters, and a geometric planter.

All project supplies needed to create these 5 projects will be provided to you as part of the ticket price, so all you’ll need to bring with you is a smile.

Sweets, cocktails, and lunch will also be provided. Along with an awesome goodie bag filled with home decor products to add to your stash of DIYs with brands like Creativebug, Simple Goods Supply, Inkwell Press, and more.

Curious to see what this workshop will be like? Check out this recap from one of Ashley’s previous workshops.

Do you ever feel pressure to make sure that everything is perfect? Perfect hair, perfect outfit, perfect house?

If I’m being honest, I feel that sometimes too, but today I am here to remind you that perfect doesn’t exist. And if it did, is that something that really matters to you, deep down inside? No! Of course not.

What does matter? Well, happiness for one. Right? Probably first and foremost.

So today, lets focus on bringing happy into your home with fun and playful housewares that are guaranteed to make you smile.

And next time you are worried about whether that art cluster you hung in the entryway looks perfectly random, remind yourself that decorating is suppose to be fun! And playful is better than perfect.


Ah, the joys of moving. We’ve been in our apartment for about a month now and it’s still unfinished. We’re trying to get artwork hung and books on the shelves in the next week or so. Of course, we didn’t do any of those things over the weekend, but we did set a deadline. Mainly because we’re having a pizza party at our place in a couple of weeks and we want to have everything done by then. Nothing like the pressure of having people over to get your decorating done, right?

Here are a few pieces I’d love to nestle into our home (handmade and otherwise)…

1. (above) This white striped vase from Pigeon Toe Ceramics (and the beautiful flowers too).

2. This beaded plant hanger from AMradio.

3. This hairy pillow at Totokaelo’s Art – Object.

4. This vintage ‘keep off the grass’ sign from Ethanollie.

5. These bowls from Julia Paul Pottery.

6. This clock from House Doctor (found via Ez).

7. This geometric serving platter from Asleep From Day.

P.S. I also put together a gift guide for Curbly this morning that features 15 awesome gifts to give from Etsy this year. See you tomorrow with a new secrets to success.
