Handmade Stackable Bracelets

Awhile back, I made several bracelets, hoping to create something for my sister's birthday. I really like making bracelets because it is so difficult to find bracelets to fit my wrist. Do you have that problem? If you have a smaller-than-average or larger-than-average wrist size, most bracelets won't fit. 
The only way is to make them yourself, which of course, I love to do.

Mini Gift Idea: Farm-Inspired Candle

In my day job, I run a volunteer program. I recently whipped up this adorable, easy birthday gift for a volunteer. It's just the right size for a little birthday gift for a volunteer. Here are the details on putting this cutie together. 
Supplies: wooden baskets, boxwood garland, lace, satin ribbon. Just add a piece of boxwood garland to a wooden basket, pop a mini farm-scented candle (got mine at Bath & Body Works) in there and wrap it all up in lace. That's it! 
I love coming up with cute little gifts! The gift itself is inexpensive but it's the packaging that makes it special.

DIY Photo Display Vine

As soon as Spring comes and flowers start blooming, I immediately become mildly obsessive about taking photos of every colorful flower I see. They aren't very good photos and the flowers look like any other flower but I just can't help myself. The in-person experience of seeing a previously brown, dead space now bursting with color is really beautiful and the photos are a feeble attempt at capturing that feeling.

DIY: Eclectic Dangle Earrings

When it comes to jewelry, I love many styles but I have a particular soft spot for the boho, eclectic look. I usually make necklaces in that style so I decided to make earrings this time. Let's get started!

Printable: Love, Hearts, Mushy Stuff

I don't usually get mushy in public or on social media. However, this month is my three-year anniversary with my husband and love is on my mind. So I'll just say - I hope each of you feels full of love and happiness! It's such a great thing to be in a good place in life, a place full of love. And a huge part of getting to that place is (to be cliche) loving yourself, which encompasses a lot of things - giving yourself room to breathe when you do something that is less-than-desirable, feeling confident in your decisions, trying new things, reminding yourself that you are good and lovely...
I've been thinking about this a lot lately. I'm feeling good about how I am loving myself right now and I want to share that with you. I made this little heart print to remind you to take a little time to love yourself and others with extra intent. 

DIY Blueberry-Dyed Wood

I recently used natural dyes to dye fabric and threw some wood plaques in for fun. I love how they turned out!

DIY Party Decor: Vase Covers (on the cheap!)

I discovered another trick for using tights in unexpected ways (see yesterday's post). In my never-ending quest to find cheap party decor tricks that don't involve plastic items from the party store, I am always spicing up plain vases from the dollar store. And one of my rules is that the decor has to be removable so I can continue using these vases. I realized I can easily customize these vases to any color scheme and it is so cheap!
