My Etsy Picks: Home Decor
This week was a busy one so far, and it’s only Tuesday! Last Wednesday, the Husband and I met with a realty guy to maybe think about possibly starting to possibly look at houses to buy. By Sunday we had two houses to go look at, and we saw three more today… in a crazy scary thunderstorm, might I add! It’s all moving much quicker than I anticipated (seriously, thinking of putting an offer in on a house in under a week makes me freak out!), but I love seeing the houses- and seeing how they are decorated! No matter when we move (or to where!), I know I’ll need some new wonderful decorations for the house! Continue reading My Etsy Picks: Home Decor

My sister is visiting for the next week and a half, and she and I tried out THREE different ways to make it. They are all very similar, using similar materials, but the process differs slightly. Let’s take a look at each of them below! Continue reading How To Make Your Own Washi Tape!
5 Uses For… Washi Tape!
I have a confession. Up until about three months ago, I’d never used washi tape. I knew all about it, thought it was cute, but just never had the impulse to buy any. I thought it was just glorified masking tape (okay, so it kind of is) – but it makes sealing packages or closing letters so cute and special! Then I started looking up other uses for it, and now I’m hooked. Here are five different ways I’ve found to use washi tape that you might enjoy too!

Project: Traditional Standing Bird Origami Tutorial
Hey again, everyone! I decided to keep up my origami creature theme and try my hand (talon?) at making a bird! I decided on something slightly easier (and more kid-friendly!) than your typical crane, so we’re just going to make a traditional standing bird this time around. It uses one piece of paper and is pretty darn easy to make! Continue reading Origami with The Husband: Traditional Standing Bird
