I recently signed on to contribute for Sugar & Cloth–one of my all time favorite DIY blogs! Ashley, the creative genius behind S&C, is a fountain of inspiration with impeccable style, so naturally I was thrilled to be apart
Anyone else geek out over innovative materials–ones that make you stop and rethink the widely accepted use for a common item? I came across this paper product that’s WASHABLE. Yes, you read that right: Machine Washable. It has a resemblance to leather that ages and patinas with use, but it’s waaaaayyyy easier to sew on than actual leather. (Hint: no broken needles!) I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this stuff and make a grommeted paper leather tote for–you know–toting around town. I used two different colors of paper and added a little surface pattern with fabric paint. I think it came out kinda cool! Read on for more…

A couple things to note: A) Make sure to remove the handles/grommets before washing. B.) If you make it, tag me on Instagram so I can see your rockstar work!

I’ve been playing around with geometric metal shapes that I found on Etsy recently, and rather than making some kind of statement jewelry with them, I decided to make something pretty for my walls. I came up with this cool brass + cotton flossing wall hanging. A little bit boho and a little bit modern, it pairs beautifully with a mixed art grouping or on its own in a small nook area, and it’s one of my favorite things I’ve made in a while. Check out the full DIY tutorial I did for Sugar & Cloth!

Though I’m not exactly a boho style girl through and through, I am inspired by certain elements, like the easy, laid back, seemingly effortless style that is quintessential “bohemian.” Lately on Pinterest, I’ve been noticing walls draped in fabric and decided to put my own spin on the trend in the form of a fabric flag, which introduces the drapey fabric idea, but in a more creative, quirky, and perhaps a bit Frenchier way, as opposed to straight up boho. In case you’re looking to give your walls an update for Spring, my tutorial on how to make this baby is up over at Sugar & Cloth!
Ah, behold the latent design power of the throw pillow. AKA soft little squares (or in this case, circles) of goodness that can single-handedly change the feeling or direction of a room, spark conversation, or soften an otherwise uninviting chair or nook. Yes folks, they’re magic when it comes to interior decor which is why they’re the easy answer to updating your space just enough to cure the restless, “I’m sick of my house” cabin fever that inevitably sets in this time of year.
‘Tis that time of year when we’re busy making resolutions for the new year in an effort to make 2017 the best one yet. Did you guys make any goals? One of the things I really want to accomplish is being more present and less plugged into my iPhone. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a blogger, so emailing, Instagramming, Pinteresting, & Tweeting very much come with the territory. But with our first baby arriving in weeks, I want to make sure I can find a manageable balance between the two.
We all have peeps on our Christmas list that are HARD to buy for. Whether it’s because you only know them professionally, & not personally like teachers and secret santa co-workers, or perhaps your giftee tells you that just being together on Christmas is enough, but you know you can’t actually show up empty handed. When I’m stumped on what to get for someone, I often turn to candles. They’re beautiful, useful, you can make them right in your kitchen.
