Fall is slowly starting to creep in around the studio as I am working on a few fall themed crafts. But nothing as elaborate as my orange fall tree I decorated last year! Who ever thought an orange tree could look so good?! 😍 But, I am finding it challenging to come up with very many fall home decor ideas that are new and modern and of course colorful. So tell me, what do you decorate for fall? Front door? Mantel? Sofa and coffee table? Kitchen counters? Bathroom? How much fall do you do? It will help me come up with decor crafts that you all might actually do!
Which felt fruit drink stirrers is your favorite?! 🍎🍋🍓🍊🍑🥝🍉🍒 I finally got around to posting the tutorial for them over on the blog. It only took three months after making them! 😂 Can anyone else tell that I had a super busy summer and couldn’t get much done with the kids home the whole time?
Making the most out of the last days of summer with these DIY marble handled marshmallow roasting sticks. Because wasn’t it about time for us to upgrade from the found fallen stick shtick? 😉 Full tutorial on the blog.
Happy Monday from my baby pilea! This little guy started as a tiny off shoot of a larger pilea with just 4 leaves. But thanks to the help of my girl Amy of @delineateyourdwelling, I have been able to root and create a new baby pilea plant that is very happy in his new color blocked planter home. Have you all grabbed her Happy Houseplants ebook yet? So much good info for caring for all your houseplants!
A happy Sunday is when I get to spend some quiet time in the studio crafting which has been few and far between this summer. Today is the last Sunday before school starts for the kids and while I love summer, I am excited to get to start working in this pretty space more without the constant need for snacks, lunch, questions, arguments about silly things, and all the other kid chaos of summer. I’m already finding myself in full Halloween planning mode (yes I am aware it is over two months ago), so my question to you today is, when is it acceptable for me to start posting about Halloween? September 1st?
My studio is slowly taking shape! I’m loving my new pink couch, because it’s PINK, duh. And it folds out into a bed for guests. I also now I have an excuse to pull out all my pretty pillows! Btw, all those pillows (with the exception of the round one in the middle) are available in the shop if you want to get your hands on them too!
Working with yarn today and thinking back on a few of my favorite past yarn projects. This faux wall weaving storage basket is one of my favorites! You can grab the fun tutorial over on the blog archives. What’s the coolest thing you’ve made with yarn?
I made my first craft in the studio! This simple but oh so cute color blocked planter is made from bowls, but you would never know it! Check out the blog for the full tutorial. Plus grab a sneak peek of my new studio couch. It’s pink!! 😍
