Blanket Jacket DIY


There is nothing like snuggling up under a cozy blanket in the fall, but since I can’t bring my blanket around with me when I leave the house I thought I would modify it into a jacket!

Clay Pumpkin Candle Holders


Holiday decorating season is in full force, and in honor of the fall/Halloween spirit I wanted to add some festive pumpkin candles into my apartment. I saw an idea on pinterest to hallow-out tiny pumpkins and place tea lights inside. However, I wanted to make a version that would last for a while without decaying and had leftover air-dry clay so I figured I could show you all how to sculpt your own pumpkin candle holders out of clay!

DIY Table Runner


One of the things about moving into a new place is trying to fill in all the little gaps and details around each room. My dining room table had been looking a little bare to me lately so I thought that it would be a good idea to get a table runner to help keep it warm. Of course I didn’t find anything I liked so naturally I decided to take a trip to the fabric store and make it myself. This DIY is super easy but turns out amazing.

Chicago Riverboat Tour


I know we all love playing tourist in our home city, and with all the visitors I’ve had coming and going this summer I was able to take two architectural riverboat cruises through the city of Chicago. It was a really great time and a recommended activity whether you are visiting the city for the first time or the hundredth because of the unique views you get from the water.

DIY Clay Marbled Coasters


I’ve been looking for a new set of coasters for a while now as a fancier option for guests compared to my everyday cute crocheted ones my mom made for me. And since nothing really popped out at me in stores, I decided it would be a good idea to just make a set! These air dry clay coasters are actually really easy to make and look super elegant when finished.

Walking Riverside


As promised I wanted to share some photos of the town I recently moved to, and maybe share a few fun facts too! It has some serious small town vibes but is only a twenty minute train-ride from downtown Chicago. Since I moved into the neighborhood I have noticed that all of the people are super friendly and largely competitive in Pokemon Go.
