DIY: Moon Mouse Pad

Friday, October 30, 2015



materials
cork trivet (similar)
masking tape
gold spray paint mod podge
moon image



step one. (if you want the gold border) line the outside of the trivet (I got mine from Walmart in the plant section when I was buying Elijah, Elisha, and Ezra.) with tape and spray paint the edges.

step two.trace the the circumference of your trivet on the image of your moon. my trivet was a little smaller than my picture, but I still think it looks good. cut a little more than necessary to leave room for error.

step three. put mod podge on top of your trivet and put the moon picture on top. cut the overlap off the sides.

step four.when the first coat has dried, put another coat on top to make it all shiny.

The Campus Garden

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

Several weeks ago my friend told me that we had a campus garden. I was super pumped. Last week I finally got the nerve to go. It was so very fun and exciting and inspirational. Only problem? I don't know what half of those vegetables are [apparently peppers are the easiest thing to grow?] and I'm super scared that I'll pick them wrong.... and at the wrong time.
Help me learn to garden? [If you know any recipes for anything you see PLEASE SHARE THEM}

so I feel like the big green things are bell peppers. But what is that yellow looking thing?

Okay so there's the papa johns pepper, but the red ones I don't know about.

Um, this is a jalapeno, right?

DIY: Flowerpot Cozy

Friday, October 23, 2015

I decided that Elisha, Elijah, and Ezra needed pretty homes. I saw this cute flowerpot cozy and I thought "oh cool yes, I'll make one. it won't look as good as hers but I'll try." As of right now, in this tutorial,  I am referring to the flowerpot cozy as the plant sweater. here we go.

Elijah, Elisha, and Ezra

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

During fall break, I went to the store and bought some plants. My dorm room was crack-a-lackin some greenery so I still hold that this was a good decision. The cactus on the far left is Elijah, the middle is Elisha, and the succulent on the right is Ezra. I think when they're planted, Elijah and Elisha will live in the same pot together (I hope that's safe...).  I am super excited about my new plant pals and I hope I don't ruin their lives.

[Elisha is my favorite. Don't tell the others.}

DIY: Constellation Pill Box

Friday, October 16, 2015

I needed something in my purse so my Tylenol bottle would stop proclaiming that I had pills in my purse, so I decided I need to make a pillbox. I originally tried to use a moon picture, but because the container isn't a circle, it looked strange. I decided to go with constellations instead and it ended up reminding me of almostmakesperfect's constellation coasters. (sorry not sorry butalmostmakesperfect again.)

Four Blogs That Deserve Street Credit

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

So before I make any more posts, I've decided that I need to hand out a little street cred (the picture is on a street - that's why it's funny. ha ha ha) to those who helped me beautify my blog.

codecademy.com
Codecademy helped me learn CSS and HTML in a non-miserable format. I wouldn't be able to understand the tutorials on other websites without it.

almostmakesperfect.com
oh my goodness. her blog is so pretty. I can feel my blog's self esteem dropping every time I look at almostmakesperfect. her blog's minimalism is a definite inspiration to the design of my blog. She also has good content and diys that I want to make when I get a house or an apartment or a bigger room or my own room or room. Her blog is my favorite and I wish I was as cool as her.

xomisse.com
this blog is amazing. She posts tutorials that make your blog beautiful. And it's not one of those blogs that have "pretty blog tutorials" and then the actual blog it's on is hideous.  She's currently redoing her site so I can't get on it AND IT'S TERRIBLE. She says she'll be back mid-October, but it is pure torture. I check everyday to see when she's back. She's not back.

venustrappedinmars.com
I really like this blog. Her post about instagram hastags is really good.  I actually get likes now! Moving on... Every Saturday she makes an effort to post a new blog tutorial to "spruce up your blog all on your own." I'm very excited to see what's she's going to post and how I can use her tutorials to make my blog pretty.

"O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
Tomorrow's wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call;
Tomorrow they may form and go."

DIY: Kate Spade Inspired Gold Sneakers

Friday, October 9, 2015

I went shopping at a goodwill and found some gold keds. I was very skeptical about buying these shoes because they weren't at all attractive, but I bought them anyways with the hope that new laces and pinterest would help me see the light. They did. Every were I looked "gold keds" presented me with Kate Spade. I really liked how there were being worn (especially here), and I knew that where were the kind I wanted so I got to work.

[see how terrifying they look? the after looks so much better than before, I think]

I was sitting with my boyfriend and scrolling through Facebook when I saw this.

I screamed.

And then I messaged my siblings and now I'm going to see MY TWO FAVORITE BANDS in December and I am stoked. So in honor of my faves making a very good decision and being so nice to me, I made a playlist of some of my favorites by some of my favorites. Be excited about good music.
