Gold Heart Pillow

With Christmas likely packed up for everyone now it's time to bring out red, pink and hearts. I decided to do a quick addition to an IKEA pillow to make a Valentine pillow that can stay out year round.

Lookin Fine Valentine

You know those moments? The ones where you get a stroke of genius and just know you have to run with the idea? I had one of those ideas while standing in line to check out the other day in IKEA. They had some candy set out, including the Daim bar (a yummy chocolate covered toffee if you've never had it before.)

Framed Flower Shadow Box

I wrote this post as part of a paid campaign with Plaid Crafts, Michaels and Blueprint Social. The opinions in this post are my own.

No matter what the weather’s doing outside, it’s never a bad time to make something that involves flowers. Micheals has a whole collection of fun Spring Wood Surfaces providing endless decorating possibilities. This framed box turned flower display features Martha Stewart Vintage Décor Paint by Plaid Crafts and stencils too.

Word of the Year 2015: Intent

It's word of the year time again! Started in 2007 by Ali Edwards, the idea is to pick a single word to focus on during the coming year (you can read more about One Little Word on her site)  My past words have been Do (2011), Reclaim (2012), Aproveitar (2013), and Strengthen (2014.) While my word last started off strong (no pun intended) by the end of the year I'd all but given up on heading to the gym, and my blog was becoming more important that my family relationships. That certainly wasn't the direction I'd planned on taking! So I considered choosing the same word again, but it felt like something was missing.
