I have a couple of projects planned to make over the weekend (all from this group of DIYs over on Pinterest). But before I let my creative mind wander for the day, I want to share one of my favorite shops for office/diy/party accessories with you.

It’s called Write with Moxie. Have you heard of it?

Because it’s awesome! Here are a few of my favorites…

You can visit Write with Moxie right here (and on Etsy here). AND for a little extra diy fix for your weekend, check out the diy section on Honestly WTF. I always find great projects over there.

Have a great weekend!


Yesterday I got the new Crate and Barrel catalog in the mail. Did you get it too?

I am not one to go crazy for Crate and Barrel, but I was pretty excited to see this colorful Marimekko tablecloth and napkin set on the front cover. The colors are perfect. I love Marimekko.

How about you? Would you use this set in your kitchen or dining room?

I know I would. But whether you would or wouldn’t, I hope you have an amazing weekend!


I rounded up the easiest (and neato-est) diy projects on the web for Danni at Oh Hello Friend again this week, and it is inspiring me to make a few things of my own this weekend. We’ll see how they turn out.

What are you doing this weekend?


Its been quite  a week. And today, all I want to do is crawl back under the covers and take the world’s longest nap. Launching the Happy Holidays Guide to DIY and releasing the new exhibition in the same week, has proved to be a a smidge overwhelming for little, old me. So, I am going to head out early and get a head start on the weekend.

Before I go, I wanted to share a couple of things. First- a thank you! Thank you so much to everyone who has been commenting this week on the blog. All your thoughts and ideas are so great, and I just can’t tell you all enough how great it is to read through everything you write. And as long as we’re discussing thank yous, I should mention that I owe a huge thank you to the Huffington Post for giving papernstitch an awesome shout out in their Indie Design Gift Guide yesterday. Read the full write up right here.

And one last thing. I wanted to recommend today’s shop of the day, art shop Tastes Orangey, to everyone for weekend browsing. I always get so inspired when I pop by Clare’s shop, and I hope you will too. Have a great weekend! See you Monday.


If my bedroom was this cozy, I don’t know if I would ever get out of bed. I am planning on doing a lot of sleeping this weekend (I’ve been super tired all week). But before I head out, I have a handful of links to share for your weekend. See you Monday.
