Kitchen Itchin’


-+*About an hour after my home was featured in Design Sponge last week something happened; I walked around my house, gave a moment of grateful thanks to live in this wonderful place, then took a deep breath and decided I wanted to change everything. Everything. Why is that? I can’t imagine I’m alone in that, am […]

10 Minute Bead Mosaic


-+*With Fat Tuesday less than 2 weeks away, now is just about time of year I like to round up a really good excuse to hoard Mardi Gras beads. This year, to celebrate, I put together a decorative tray that doubles as year-round wall art if you play your colors right. It’s fast, cheap, and […]

House Tour on Design Sponge

1 dinning-south-arch 800

-+*Long ago in a time when dinosaurs roamed earth, before the dawn of the iPhone, before there was Netflix, before I had a blog, before I worked for myself…I used to sit in a cubicle all day and gawk at home tours on Design Sponge. I used to wonder who lived in these places and what […]

Come on in! Craft Studio Video Tour


-+*There is something seriously wrong with my inability to think in white rooms. I know some people can only be productive in a space that is clean/white/empty, and that’s great for them, but it doesn’t work for me. At all. I need a space that is “tidy-enough” to function, but messy enough to think. I […]

-+*Most of you don’t come here to discuss Jamie Lynn Spears’, “totally unplanned,” Red Sonja style knife moves at a Lousiana pita shack (which is a shame because I would like to discuss this AT LENGTH) – so here is a pillow I made out of crayons and white cotton. That’s it. Crayons + Fabric […]

Welcome Home Giraffe Chair


-+*Ever have one of those days when you see something and you could swear you have seen it before? Welp. You know I wasn’t going to say no. Also, fyi, having a rocking chair in the kitchen might be the best thing ever. The Best. This morning I just sat in it and listened to […]
