Restyled Home (warning: this post is to chronicle my memories of our trip, therefore it is very lengthy and likely a bit boring to anyone but me or those who are planning a similar vacation.) Did I ever tell you I was planning a big March Break vacation? Probably not; I am not a big fan of letting the internet know when I will be out of town/my house is empty. Gavin DeBecker would tell you that is not the best way to honor your instincts. We have always been the ones to sit back and listen to others' vacation memories and scroll through Facebook photos of friends and family sunning themselves by crystal-clear, blue ocean waters.

Hammers and High Heels Hello from Antarctica Minneapolis! It's 1 single sexy little degree this evening here in the Twin Cities, well on our way to a balmy -17 for the night.... ahhh the splendor of the northern midwest! I'm happy to report that I did in fact get my buns off the couch over the weekend for some DIY action! I decided to tackle the DIY clutch bag idea first (link to inspiration here).

Getting started with SparkNotes for Android SparkNotes started out as a Web site called The Spark in 1999, and was developed by a group of students trying to make it easier to understand literature. Known today as SparkNotes, the site features hundreds of guides to help aid students, teachers, and those wishing to brush up on a subject. According to SparkNotes, its intent was not to have students skip out on their reading assignments and just read the SparkNotes instead. Instead, it wanted to create a fun and educational Web site that helps give further explanations on topics. So far just the literature guides are available on Android, but SparkNotes does offer standardized test study aids and materials for many other subjects on its site and in book form.

Rips in My Jeans I had a hard time titling this post. I am not an expert or anywhere near being in a position to give advice. I just want to share my heart. When I was 17, I thought I was well on my way to some lucrative career. Rips in My Jeans

This is a really easy pillow to make with very little sewing. It is made with felt, which will not fray. I love the way it turned out and cost me under $10 to make! (I had some of the supplies laying around the house.) Supplies: Domestic Charm Domestic Charm
Toy Rotation Bins Toy Rotation Bins A few months ago I read the book Simplicity Parenting by Kim John Payne and quickly became convinced that my kids had too many toys. Not only that, but they had the wrong types of toys,and too many options at any given time.

J's Everyday Fashion If I lived in a colder climate, I would wear Fair Isle sweaters all. the. time. I contemplated buying the one in my inspiration photo, and the first one below. Practicality won out in both cases, but that didn't stop me from trying to re-create a Fair Isle outfit anyway. I used a bib necklace to mimic the patterned neckline over a mustard sweater and paired it with turquoise cropped pants.
mmmcrafts: decor tea towel pillow on the left, napkin pillow on the right. In the tradition of the Anthro placemat pillows, here are two more methods to create home decor from table linens. This is a much more affordable option for me than actually buying the pillows. I drool buckets over most everything in Anthropologie's home decor section but can't get past the price tag, even with the devil on my shoulder.
Needle Crafts Savannah from Oh So Pretty: The Diaries is here to share her Sew a Bird on it! Let's give her a round of applause for such detail. Plus a free printable bird template. Thanks, Savannah! We had this awesome tray in our living room that had these pretty little stitched designs but, they were old and they didn't match our new color schemes so we decided to update it! We wanted to make sure we kept something stitched because it was such a cute detail so- we decided to SEW A BIRD ON IT!
