New year, New you, right? I don’t really make any specific resolutions as much as I set general goals for myself. One of my goals for this year is to get more organized. Instead of hiding things in drawers and closets, I want to find more purposeful places for my belongings, particularly my craft supplies. I’m hoping this will help me to be more productive and thus produce more projects for you guys!

If you’re looking for ways to get organized in your life, I’ve rounded up these 10 DIY projects that are both stylish and functional!

DIY Bath Salt Ornaments with Dried Rose Petals and Lavender


It’s technically not even winter yet but I already have the winter blues. That’s why I couldn’t resist buying a bouquet of roses from Trader Joe’s. I did a sugar scrub post earlier this year that I wanted roses for, but didn’t even think to dry the petals myself. I wondered how to combine a beauty post with the holidays and came up with these bath salt ornaments.

The ornaments turned out super cute, but I would actually hang them from your tree. While taking photos, one of the tops popped off and there was salt and lavender everywhere!! They would however make adorable gifts! Read More →

DIY Modern Holiday-Themed Terrariums


This year feels like it flew by! Not only is it already November, but Thanksgiving is in two days! I can’t wait until I get to go home and eat copious amounts of pumpkin pie. While Turkey Day is one of my favorite holidays, I love those days between Thanksgiving and Christmas. They are filled with Christmas music, holiday baking, and cheesy holiday movies.

As a blogger, this time of year also means a lot of crafting. I got a head-start with my holiday decorating this year by making these modern holiday-themed terrariums. I like how they’re not your typical red-and-green decoration, but still bring holiday cheer to any room!

Favorite Concrete DIYs


Do you call it concrete or cement? I didn’t know what to title this post until I looked up the difference between the two. Did you know that cement is actually an ingredient of concrete? You learn something new everyday.

I’ve only worked with concrete once before when I made this concrete photo background. I wanted something textured with more of an industrial feel. I love how it turned out, and it was fun and surprisingly easy to make. I want to make more projects using concrete and these projects I rounded up serve as the perfect inspiration.

Summer has officially come and gone. I’m pretty sad about saying good-bye to warm weather but then I remember that Fall is my favorite season. Leaves change colors, I eat pumpkin-flavored everything, and I get to wear layered clothing. Hello, sweater weather!

I rounded up these 15 velvet pieces that will make the transition into Fall smooth as…velvet. Read More →
