diy shadowbox calendar

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

to help ring in the new year, I made a shadowbox calendar! it looks rad + it's super functional. you can put it on your desk, mount it on your wall, or put it pretty much wherever you want. since it's a box, it serves as its own little storage container and keeps the calendar pages from getting lost. use the free download at the end of the tutorial to make your own!

The Big Break

Thursday, September 8, 2016

I used to wonder why I couldn't be like bigger blogs like Homey Oh My or Almost Makes Perfect, but I now realize that it's because those bloggers are big girls. They're grown up grown ups.

They have apartments - I have a dorm.
They have actual jobs - I have a mountain of student loans.

School just consumes soooo much of my time. Almost of all of it. I both transferred schools and switched majors and I have a buttload of work to do. I wish I could dedicate more of my time to blogging, but I really, really can't. At least not yet. I want to do the best that I can do while I am in school and if I ever catch a spare moment, I'm probably going to use it to do some freelance work or grow my etsy shop (because let's be honest. blogging's not going to make me any money for a long while).

that being said, I will absolutely keep posting in my spare time. I've been invited by skillshare to teach a virtual crafting class (YOU SHOULD ABSOLUTELY SIGN UP) and instructables has asked me to participate in some of their themed projects. I'll of course try to post as much as possible because I really do enjoy blogging.

diy splattered wood coasters

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

If you were here Monday, you saw this post mentioning my kitchen wants. I'm going to start doing tiny things to reach my kitchen goals and I decided I needed coasters. I came across these west elm rain coasters and knew I needed them. I also knew I could make them and it would be much cheaper (which really worked out because theirs had a gold rim and I wanted a copper rim).
