Back to school projects anyone? Here is Atlanta, schools are already starting back up and I had a few back to school projects that I’ve been dying to share. Partly because they’ll truly work for any time of year, whether it’s back to school month or not. And partly because one of the projects became a good excuse for buying a new power tool and I am now completely obsessed with my jigsaw!
Don’t worry though – if you’re not into power tools, there’s some simpler projects as well that are perfect for anyone wanting to get organized – adults and kiddos alike. I teamed up with Martha Stewart and Plaid Crafts again to create fabric covered organizational boxes (from recycled shoe boxes), DIY stenciled notebooks, and (my fave) a wood arch wall organizer that both kids and adults will love.

I have so many collared shirts hanging in my closet that are begging for a little something extra and this cute little clay number seems to be calling my name. It’s like the understated love child of a necklace and an earring. Haha. And if you want to make your own, it will only take a few minutes and a handful of supplies.
Do you ever go on the internet and look at houses for sale just for fun? Because I do it ALL the time and I’d really love to hear that I’m not the only one. It’s kind of a (slightly strange) hobby of mine. But it’s not all weird because Jeff and I are saving up to buy a house again…For the last two years, we’ve been pretty seriously saving up for a really good size down payment and sadly we’re still not there. It’s a work in progress and I knew it would take a while, but the fact that we’re still not quite ‘ready’ to buy a house again will not, I repeat WILL NOT stop me from looking. Haha.
Anyway, I got it in my head a while back that I wanted to take you on the whole house journey / obsession with me. And I have teamed up with Owners.com, a national real estate brokerage that aims to make the home buying and selling journey personalized, efficient and simple, to show you the houses that I’ve been dreaming of lately. Including one house in particular that I’ve been eyeing for over a month now. It’s still for sale! Does that mean I could get a really good deal if I can convince Jeff we NEED this house?
You’ll have to let me know if you think it’s worth it! And I want your honest opinion because it’s not exactly a ‘cheap’ fixer upper.
When it comes to vases and planters, I am completely obsessed with finding the *perfect* ones. I mean…how else am I going to get my fill of flowers and plants without super cute vessels to put them in, right? And right now, I’m specifically on a vases kick because I’ve reached my quota on planters (and plants) I can have inside (and outside) the house at the moment.
So, today I’ve rounded up a whole bunch of cool modern vases for your pretty flowers to go in. And I literally want every.single.one.of.them. Someone save me from myself and buy them out from under me! Click through for all 16 of my current vase picks forever budget. The vases on the list start as low as $4!
I’m always on the hunt for really cool DIY home projects – whether it’s DIY furniture or large home accessories (like lighting, mirrors, etc). So, I rounded up a handful of my faves for the weekend, in case you wanna tackle something a bit more involved than organizing your junk drawer in five minutes flat. Although, I totally need to hit up my junk drawers again for some organization. Haha.

Ready for a leather DIY? How about three! I’ve been on a bit of a leather kick ever since making this engraved leather clock. So the other day, I drove out to a leather store and picked up a handful of things to experiment on with my Cricut Maker. After playing around a little bit, I came up with three brand new DIY leather projects to share. I made a mini leather wall organizer (which might be my fave of the three), leather wrapped planters for an indoor herb garden, and a leather notebook.
