Moving In

So it’s been a ridiculously long time since I’ve written here, which is… dumb. It’s summer! I should have all the time in the world to come up with new things right? Well frankly, I’ve been stumped and writer’s block has been hitting hard. That being said, I’m going to try to get back into the swing of things. In a month or so I’m moving into my first place (a super cute apartment). I’m really excited to use this space to express what I love and who I am and to share it with my friends. So here are some of the first brainstorming sessions.

So far I know I want…

1) to stick to a retro 1960’s, eclectic feel (mixed with some whimsy of course)

2) a chalkboard paint backslash in my kitchen

3) those awesome mirrors in the top right photo!

Decorating suggestion and ideas from those more experienced home beautifiers would rock so please let me know what you think!

DIY Project: A Gift for Veejay :D

My favorite blog, hands down, is A Beautiful Mess. Elsie’s fashion and DIY genius are super inspirational and I’m always itching to make something every time I visit her blog. My fabulous friend Veejay’s birthday was coming up so I decided to make her this cute fox pillow that I saw on A Beautiful Mess. Here’s how it turned out! 🙂

1) First I sewed on the snout, heart, and buttons.

2) Then I began to sew both sides of the pillow together. Make sure that you sew it with the outside facing in. Leave an opening at the bottom to pull it back right side out and to put in the stuffing.

3.) After I finished, I pulled the pillow right side out and began to stuff it.

4.) Finally, I sewed up the hole with needle and thread.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY VEEJ!!!!!

Yay!!!! She loved it!

Veejay rocks my socks off and is an ammmmaaazzinnngg friend!!!!! Love you Veej!!!!!!!!!!!
