I'm excited to announce the launch of the Oh Joy for Nod kids' bedding and decor collection! Inspired by Ruby and her transition to a big girl room, the collection is a limited-edition bedding and home decor line for kids. It includes baby, toddler, and kids' bedding, pillows, lamps, plush toys, rugs, and a curated collection of art to go with it all. The Sundae Best collection is inspired by Ruby's favorite food—ice cream—and how fun it would be to sleep surrounded by your favorite treat. I wanted to create an abstracted version of ice cream with sprinkle sheets and a cone-inspired pattern on the duvet. Topped with the ice cream cone and cherry pillows, it's seriously what my dreams are made of.

Show Thanks to Teachers with this Creative Starbucks Gift
May25 by Lindsey Boardman Here’s a quick and easy printable for you to customize as an end of year Starbucks gift card* thank you for all the top teachers out there to show your appreciation. My kids’ teachers love their coffee and the two of them used to go get each other cups of Starbucks coffee on their lunch breaks, so a Starbucks gift cards seemed like the ideal thank you present for them. This cheeky little printable “Thank You Teacher Sleeve” fits over one of the smaller Starbucks take out cups (the size they usually do the kid’s hot chocolates in), which is also the perfect size to hide the gift card inside.
Honest To Nod
When we found out about the amazing candy making process at Papabubble, we knew we had to make a stop during our first Nod Bus Tour at their location in Pasadena, CA. We were even more excited after we discussed partnering with them to create some exclusive custom candy to hand out on our #nodtourbus stops around California in April. We sat down with Mike from Papabubble LA to find out a little more about their delicious and creative candy. What exactly is Papabubble?
DIY Valentine Hand-Warmers
Jan26 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. The messages to go along with these funny little hearts are endless. Here’s how to make the hand-warmers:

an herb garden in a box is my fave (guest post from randi)
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.
a striped tablecloth is my fave
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. Paint. Dry.
a wall of confetti is my fave
You better believe that is the half wall looking more festive than ever. This installation required a boatload of confetti, a sheet of plastic, spray adhesive and a couple runs with the vacuum. It has definitely added some happy to our apartment.
