This one is super easy and won’t take long at all.

Gold, Fame, Citrus. Startup. Perfect Little World.

05.02.17

How long has it been since you read a good book? I know I haven’t picked one up in ages. As a kid I used to read all of the time, and as an adult I found it not only hard to find the time to read, but it was also hard to figure out what I wanted to read. I would also pick books based on their covers and then ultimately fall asleep reading a boring book. In order to try to solve that problem I thought it would be a good idea to try the Book of the Month Club! It’s an online subscription service that takes the pressure out of trying to figure out what to read next, and delivers hard cover books right to your door. AND in hopes of keeping accountable in my reading I thought I could share some of my thoughts on here with you all.

DIY Conversation Heart Rings

02.08.17

When you think of Valentine’s Day you think chocolate, flowers, and conversation heart candy…obviously. But other than being cute and great to pass out in grade school do conversation hearts actually have any uses? I mean are there people who still eat these things? Since I don’t, I thought it would be fun to turn a few heart shaped candies into some really cute rings to wear this week!

Embroidered Headshots

02.01.17

There is nothing more relaxing than a good embroidery session, and I felt it was time to take it up a notch. I have never embroidered anything other than fabric before and thought it would be good to give some photos a try. To get started I printed out some black and white headshots of myself that I thought would be fun to add a little something extra to. I ended up printing them pretty small (4×6) since I have never done this before. The small size made embroidering the entire photo more manageable as I was experimenting with a new process. It was really cool to be able to add different colors and textures onto the photo using the thread.
