In Need of Some Color I'm desperate for a little color in my life. It's gray outside, yesterday it rained ice, something needs to change here. One of these items should do it, or I could just go get a tan on a beach somewhere. I'm okay with either option. [mosaic card; reclaimed wood; abstract print; bird pillow] Swoon!: Two for the road. I'm excited to show you these little kits I've been putting together for our upcoming road trip. Do your kids do well on trips? My girls have done great with a 4-5 hour car ride since birth, sometimes we even forget to bring any toys! It’s in the NEWS! Newspaper. It’s one of the things I’ve never thrown away. And with my obsessive coupon clipping last year..we have TONS! While newspaper comes in handy when cleaning windows/mirrors, stuffing and wrapping packages. There are also so many crafty things you can do with it.

DIY $5 Flower Vase! So, I finally just changed all the burnt out light bulbs in my house. So now my left with old light bulbs and being the environmentalist I am, I do not want to throw them out. I want to make art with them! So I was looking at different crafts and I came across this vase. I was ready to make it on the spot but sadly I do not have all the materials, so I decided to share it with all of you! Sisal Rope Bowl I once fell in love with a rope bowl, it was by David Stark for West Elm. Sadly that awesome rope bowl is no longer available, bring it back, bring it back I say! My latest crafty project was inspired by that bowl and I believe has something to do with my fixation on neutrals with layers of texture. In fact, I think I need an entire Pinterest category devoted to it. I’ve had that rope bowl on my mind for many months, so I snagged a cheapo metal bowl from a craft store on clearance a few weeks ago, plus a couple of rolls of sisal rope from my local hardware store, and then got crafty with my glue gun. How to Make a Sisal Rope Bowl:

DIY+Pregnant Brain Without getting into too many details-the baby is going to be a little longer than we thought. We were afraid that she was going to be early, and now that she isn't, I sort of feel like I'm living life in limbo.I don't know if it's just me, or women in general, who find the strangest tasks to pass time until a baby arrives. Suddenly, the weirdest things pop on to our 'to do' lists, and become oddly important. Swoon!: Made at home: Wool Vases I have a super easy project for you today! When it comes to decorating for Autumn, I'm all about cozy materials. I'm not one to do Halloween themed decor, but I like to change things up a bit. Neutral tones are my favorite, which is why I love to bring things from the outdoors in. Like these awesome branches with mini-pumpkins (real!)

Our Clean Up Crew! Welcome back another Made by Me Monday! Remember when I made THIS? It was round 3 of the Crafters Competition. Well, since summer is over I decided that my handy dandy frame needed a REdo! DIY Sun Jar I found this tutorial on Free People‘s DIY blog and I loved it! So I made six, haha. They give off that candle-esque which is prefect if you are like me and live in a rental where you are not allowed candles! A Beautiful Mess I love using cloth napkins to dress up our dinner table, and through the years I've grown even more fond of their sustainability and cost effectiveness. Though, I'm not sure how cost effective it is if you keep buying more and more cloth napkins each year! This holiday season I thought it would be fun to look at how I could dress up the napkins I already own to give them an extra festive vibe.

DIY Faux Curled Rosewood Wreath {Made From Rolled Recycled Book Pages} I have seen various versions of Faux Rosewood Wreaths in just about every store and catalog for the upcoming season; most with a price tag running upwards of $40 or more. Some are crafted of paper and other of real wood shavings. Last year I made a few rolled flower gift toppers from recycled book pages and they remind me so much of the curled wood roses I thought they would make a good substitute. {with a much lower price tag} Swoon!: Quick gift: Cozy hand warmers Still have a few people left on your list? Here's a quick and cute gift you can whip up in 20 minutes or less! These little hand warmers are filled with rice and are perfect for slipping in your pocket before you run out the door! I made a few extra for myself for those chilly late evening/early morning walks with my dog.

Craft-Ease: Monogram from rolled book pages I had seen this idea for a monogram on The Precious Little Things in Life. Stacy has lots of beautiful and creative ideas. I knew I wanted to make this myself! I also thought this would be a great idea for a zero dollar project!! She used a wooden letter purchased at a craft store but I actually decided to make my own cardboard letter. I stenciled a letter on to none other than the side of a cardboard diaper box. DIY Lace Chandelier!! I made this chandelier and it was soo easy and it looks amazing! I’m so happy with how it turned out! The hanger planter changes from black to white, sorry I made it black at first and didn’t like it so I redid it white but didn’t take pictures the second time Tutorial below!
