plant lady

Almost every weekend I’m at the nursery staring at plants and flowers wondering which would do best at the house. We’ve got some minimal landscaping going on, it’s all low maintenance and survived the few hard freezes we’ve had without any problems (go plants!) I’ve got a few medium sized potted plants (rubber plant, lamb’s…

I’m planning on cozying up with hot cocoa and the furry children, watching Christmas movies and, of course, continuing to move my things from the tiny townhouse to the new house…which…

downtown

This was the song I sang (quite poorly) to myself today while I was trying to figure out what to do with that extra hour we got from Daylight Savings time or as I like to call it…the “the only reason I am on-time for work this week” time. Since inktober ended I’ve been catching…

let go. show up. repeat.

This is such a relatable quote. Over the weekend I was working on a project for the blog and started to feel anxious about getting everything just right. I started rebranding a couple weeks ago and I’m still feeling things out. It was only after a little therapeutic paper crafting… …that I began to calm…

breaking bread

I conducted an experiment last weekend where I followed this recipe for Cranberry Swirl Bread, traded out the cranberries for apricot preserves, and used gluten-free flour instead of regular ol’ all-purpose flour. IT. WAS. A. COMPLETE. DISASTER. I started over with regular flour (because failure is not an option and I was making BREAD, damnit!).…

You can draw on them with metallic markers (like I did), paint (puffy paint!), spray them with glitter (of course!), or make them…

paper flowers don’t lie

I’m currently obsessed with paper flowers and paper flower tutorials. In the back of my mind I know that creating giant roses for my office and/or living room would also mean creating GIANT dust collectors. But does that mean I shouldn’t create them? It’s a quandry; I’ve always equated decor (tchotchkes) with dust and dusting…
