I’m off to get a gallon of paint for my husband’s home office. He’s perfectly content with stark white walls and piles of clutter on the floor, but I’m not! We already have everything below around the house except this sexy mama rug—the perfect finishing touch!

I believe his exact wording was “you’re making a spectacle of yourself!” Maybe I would be the good kind of spectacle [...]
I’m going to take a whack at screen printing. With a bit of rearranging I think these doodles will look awesome on a tote bag, t-shirt, apron, pillow etc… Here’s hoping they turn out as great as they look in my head!
I collect dirt. Dirt is the perfect memento of an unforgettable vacation. It’s free, easy to find, fits in my suitcase and lets me take a piece of the world home with me. When I’m an old lady I will look at my shelf full of soil and sand from all over the world and remember [...]
