Make Your Own: Lotion Bars {lavender + peppermint}

I like Cetaphil and coconut oil as much as the next person. But, I don’t like chemicals in my hand cream, I dislike buying non-recyclable plastic tubes, and toting coconut oil around town when it goes from solid to liquid with a warm breeze is flirting with disaster. So, lotion bars seemed like a no-brainer to add to my ever-growing inventory of homemade beauty products.

Past + Present = Easy Art

In so many aspects of life, it’s important to find a way to balance past and present – whether in your relationships, your wardrobe (still waiting for the right moment to break out my scardigan), or your home.

Our house is a few months shy of being a centurion, so I try to respect its age while maintaining a semi-modern style. This very easy $15/15 minute DIY art piece is a great example of how past and present can be a perfect pair.

Simple & Sparkling

With the onslaught of holidays approaching, it can be a little daunting to think of all the decor, dinners, presents, and parties. So, I thought I’d start off with something simple to get me into the first of many holiday mini-projects. And, it doesn’t get much simpler than a girl with some gourds, glue and glitter.

Semi-DIY wedding favors

Crafting is a huge hobby of mine, so getting married last month was not only wonderful because I got to marry my best friend, but it also gave me license to craft and design all sorts of things for the past year, and it was awesome. Since our wedding, I’ve happily shifted gears back into home design mode, but looking back at our wedding pictures sort of makes me long for X-ACTO knives and ribbon.

Assembling my wedding favors was one of the easier ways to be a DIY bride and these went perfectly with the rest of my decor. The cellophane bags looked great in the candlelight at the guest tables and the ribbons and tags helped carry my navy, white and coral color theme. Plus, with a cost per favor around $3, they were pretty affordable. If you’d like to make these for your upcoming event, the instructions are below.
