I hope you all are having a wonderful week. I am certainly enjoying the longer days and the scent of magnolia in the air. There’s something about Spring that makes me want to refresh everything.

But, when I am bogged down in anxiety, it’s hard to do anything super complex and detailed. Thus, this dollar store craft was born! It is crazy easy and will only cost you $2 in supplies!Read More
We did a thing last weekend! If you have been following along on Instagram, you probably know just how much I HATED the glued-on mirror that adorned one of the walls in my living room. We have been living with it for two years now and we just couldn’t stand it anymore! So, we got to work and our easy diy shiplap wall was born!Read More
