Do It Yourself Four
diy easter baskets are my fave March 28, 2013 // 5 Comments I know, Easter is three days away and you’ve already got the ham in the oven. But if you tend to do things last minute like me, you might be interested in busting out one of these simple, fabric covered baskets. They’ll only take you about 15 minutes each and trump the plastic woven variety. To make your own you’ll need: - paper mache box (I found these at Hobby Lobby) - fabric (1/4 yard is plenty) - Mod Podge - paint brush - scissors - handles from paper bag (I used some from a Nordstrom bag but felt, ribbon or cording would work too) - paper flowers (the ones I used are from West Elm ) or ribbon
I had a baby so I’ve invited some fave guests to take over for me while I spend time with the little guy. Today’s post is from Randi of Swoon . Spring has always been my favorite season for lots of obvious reasons. Flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and the days are getting longer. If you’re as nerdy about Spring as I am, why not spread the love with this simple gift? It’s perfect for neighbors and teachers too.
I adore this tablecloth from Anthropologie but $100 isn’t so much in my price range. I decided to recreate the look for under $20 for all those upcoming picnics that in my head I pretend we’re going to have. All you need is: - a canvas dropcloth (available in a range of sizes from your local hardware store) - masking tape - fabric paint - sponge brush Tape.
I seem to have this habit of getting stuck on one thing and I really love it (borderline obsession love it) until I tire and move on. Sometimes it manifests itself in the form of a movie, like that one summer when I was nine and watched Mighty Ducks every single day. Sometimes it manifests itself in a food, like the month I put mustard on everything.

Jan 26 by Brenda Ponnay It’s still quite cold outside in February so we decided we’d make some hand-warmer Valentines! What’s better to give than the gift of warm hands after all and of course there’s always the wonderful idea of walking around with a cozy warm heart in your pocket.
