Wall Crawl: Picking the Right Art for Your Home and Making Sure it Fits When it Gets There

  |   15 comments


It’s no secret that I’m a big art fan over here. Kind of goes with the territory when your degree is in studio art. But I know for some it can be a little intimidating to pick out artwork, figure out where it would best go in your home, hang it successfully (especially if you’re doing a gallery wall), etc.

SO! I partnered with Art.com to show you how insanely easy the process can be, from visualizing what pieces will look best, to making sure it will actually fit when it gets there. There’s some before and after photos of my space too!

They not only look different than your typical waffles (they’re a pretty pastel green color), but they taste a little different too…in a good way. If you’re a matcha lover, you’ve got to try these! Click through for the recipe.

6 DIYs to Try This Weekend

I’m headed to California today for an impromptu trip with Jeff to San Francisco (and also to see family). It was planned super last minute, so I have no idea what we’re going to do while there. If you have any SF suggestions (shopping, restaurants, etc), let me know! It’s been a few years since I was last there, so I don’t remember much.

What are you up to this weekend? If you’re looking for a handful of DIYs to try, click through for weekend project ideas.

This one is completely different from the first though. It’s a patchwork! And it takes far less time than the last one. Hallelujah!

It’s still large scale, so if you like big rugs (and you cannot lie), be sure to check this one out!
