Natural Cotton Wreath

I have a pretty unique name. It isn’t very common, and the spelling of my name makes it super unique (I know, you’re wondering how this could possibly tie in to this wreath project? but just wait!). Several years ago I connected, via Facebook, with someone else named Shae. The really crazy thing? Our maiden names were exactly the same as well! This obviously doesn’t happen very often. Okay, so, this has never ever happened before. Even better, we have similar characteristics and similar tastes! Recently Shae and I were talking about Fall decor and our search for natural cotton or … Continue reading Natural Cotton Wreath

I just came across these supplies that I had stashed away, I couldn’t wait to create these magnets! Needed: Sculpey polymer clay small circle cutter black ink pad alphabet stamps magnets rolling pin super … Continue reading Clay Typewriter Key Magnets // DIY

Patterned Easter Eggs

I used to love dyeing eggs at Easter… the more vibrant, the better! This year I wanted to do an updated version of Easter egg decorating. I came across a picture of this method and, since I always have brown eggs on hand, decided that this was the perfect project! It’s so simple, just hardboiled eggs and a paint pen! The pen wrote easily on the eggs and dried quickly. Decorate room temperature eggs. Eggs straight from the refrigerator will sweat, causing the paint to run. For more color, try this method on dyed eggs or use a colored paint … Continue reading Patterned Easter Eggs
