I’ve recently become addicted to smoothie bowls because they’re so easy…and well….Instagram worthy. Haha. And this recipe is both of those things – literally the easiest breakfast idea (only two ingredients for the base) and so pretty!

I asked my friend Alejandra from Hell Yeah Gluten Free to share her smoothie bowl secrets with you. She makes the prettiest / most delicious smoothie bowls I’ve had. And today I’m sharing her recipe base, along with TONS of additional flavor combos.

Bleach, Please: How to Get the Look of a Shibori Print (on Textiles) with Bleach

  |   15 comments

DIY Idea // How to Get the Look of a Shibori Print with Bleach. #diy #diyideas #shibori #neutrals #neutraltextiles #craftproject #fabricproject
A few years ago, I shared a technique for transforming old linens with bleach and I thought it was time to try this project again. This time though, I tested out making patterns, using a simple shibori technique that is typically reserved for dyeing. And surprisingly, the bleach worked like a charm! So I’m sharing the tutorial today.

To mimic this look at home, you’ll just need a solid color fabric (cotton), some bleach, and a couple of other things you probably already have at home. So easy! Click through for the tutorial.

Weekend DIYs to Try. #weekendprojects #cooldiyideas #uniquediyideas #moderndiyideas

Before we get to the weekend DIYs to try this week, I have a quick favor to ask. I’m currently one of five finalists for Domino’s Design Blog Awards in the Best DIY Blog of 2018 category and would love your vote if you have a quick sec. Domino has always been a great resource of inspiration for interiors and home decor for me. So, I’m kind of pinching myself over this nomination.

Will you vote for Paper and Stitch at this link? I promise, it will only take a second (it’s the very first category at the top and you don’t have to register or anything to vote). I’m not usually one for accolades, but this one means a lot to me. You can vote everyday if you’d like, until the voting ends on September 23rd, but even just one vote would be awesome. 

Okay…that’s that! Now onto the weekend DIYs to try!

I am constantly arranging and rearranging furniture at the house, especially now that I’m in a hardcore nesting stage.
