How to Make Large-Scale Prints at Home

I love giving gifts but always put pressure on myself when it comes to finding the perfect present for those closest to me—especially Scott!

Our New Gallery Wall

Our living room is by far the room we spend the most time in every day, and after a few months I always get the itch to start rearranging. This past weekend I added some new art to our wall to give it a lighter, more modern feel.

The Worlds Easiest Valentine’s Day DIY

If you are looking for a super easy, super cute, super cheap Valentine’s Day project, then I’ve got the thing just for you. I made this wreath this weekend—it took me about 5 minutes (literally) and cost about $12. Plus, I think it’s cute enough to live past Valentine’s Day—I could see us leaving this guy up for the next several months through spring! :)

Michaels New Spring Craft Line

If you’ve been a reader around here for any amount of time, you know I LOVE arts and crafts. I’m constantly coming up with new ideas and plans and having to “run to the store for just one thing” and coming home with a bag full of stuff and a head full of ideas. So when Michaels invited me to attend the opening of their new store and get a sneak-peek of their new spring product line I couldn’t reply “YES!!” fast enough. I went last night and I am so excited to share EVERYTHING with you guys today!
