Holiday DIY Wrap Up
After the Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Green Monday (what is that even?) dust has settled you should have all your shopping taken care of, right? Yeah, me neither. But once you do get all those presents you want to make sure they beautiful under the tree, or in the stocking, or where ever you’re […]More
Winter Wonderland Craft Time
Now that December is officially here, I feel better about all the holiday crafts I’ve been drooling over the past few weeks. Something about snowflakes and gingerbread before Thanksgiving seems a little wrong. But as I sit here sipping my hot chocolate laced coffee (half a pack of Swiss Miss to a mug of your […]More

It’s practically narcotic (10 points if you know that movie reference!) But I wanted to share my latest playlist with you all. It’s my […]More

I was very excited because it was the final weekend of the 40 Under 40 exhibition and I really wanted to see what the “craft futures” had to offer. It truly was amazing the things people create. Unfortunately, I couldn’t take pictures since […]More
