We moved almost 9 months ago and I’m sad to say I JUST finished decorating my living room ha!  I am going to blame the procrastination on my pregnancy.  BUT one of the things I struggled with the most was my gallery wall.  For some reason I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to hang and how.  And because of this it put the rest of the room on hold as well.  So I teamed up with Minted, and lets just say, it made the process MUCH easier!  I am sharing 8 tips that really helped me in this whole gallery wall process.  And if you have any gallery wall tips of your own I would love to hear them!  Because to be honest, a gallery wall needs to reflect your own style more than anything.  Here are 8 tips that will help you create the perfect gallery wall.

4th of July is coming up and I’m so excited!  After Christmas and Halloween it is for sure my favorite Holiday.  Its so festive and fun and I love how crazy our city gets.
One thing I am not a fan of for the 4th is how ugly and tacky all the fireworks are ha ha I mean come on, can’t they come up with a cuter design?!  So here is a fun way to dress up those basic party poppers (because messing with fireworks sounds scary ha).  They are WAY more fun to pop when they look this cute, it’s a fact.

DIY CONFETTI CANDY BOWLS

DIY-Confetti-Candy-Bowls

DIY-Confetti-Candy-BowlsCandy-dish-DIY Crafting is messy business!  I love it, obviously, but my hands always have some sort of crafting remnant on them, whether its glue, paint, glitter, or confetti.  But at the same time I love the mess it takes to create something fun.  I was excited to team up with method for their #fearnomess campaign and do just that…fear no mess.  Their soap is sort of my life line when it comes to staying clean and the fact that it smells good, is non toxic and comes in bright fun colors (I mean I LOVE bright colors if you can’t tell ha) doesn’t hurt either.  So keeping all that in mind…these DIY confetti candy bowls were born.
I love candy, but I love even more putting my candy in adorable little dishes.  I want to fill them with yummy colorful candy and put them all over my house, BUT I have kids and that is obviously a bad choice ha ha.  In the mean time these cute bowls will be coming out for special candy occasions.  Although I might have decided to put confetti on all my dishes now…ha!  Learn how to make these fun bowls in only a few simple steps.  And forget the mess!

6 FUN INSTAGRAM CRAFTS

Six fun instagram crafts to try this weekend

Six fun instagram crafts to try this weekendI have a love hate relationship with the whole “digital age” …  On one hand it’s amazing because we get pictures in seconds, we can fit our camera in our back pockets and everything is so simple.  But remember the day when you had to go to the store and actually pick up your pictures?? Or when you had NO idea what was even on your disposable camera?  But what I miss most are those tangible pictures in your hands.  Anyways, rant over … yes I miss the gold ole days but what I NEED to do is get crafty with my pictures now and not let them just sit on my phone.  Here are 6 fun Instagram crafts to try this weekend.  Don’t let them just sit, print away ;)
