Greek Inspired Graphics



Hey everyone! Today I'm sharing some super cute Greek Inspired Graphics. I always loved reading mythology when I was in high school, and I wanted to incorporate a modern feel to these classic Grecian icons. Hope you love them!

HELP! Which one?

Did you know that today is "Don't Judge Another Person by the Looks of Their Garage" Day? Okay, not really, but for the sake of this post, it is! Haha!

Alright everyone, I need your creative juices! I'm kinda stuck on a project. 

I have this dresser, whom I hate.

Here it is in all it's ugly splendor:


It was give to us when we first had June, and we took it... it moved with us, and since we have it I am kinda stuck using it as June's dresser. A note to the poor (aka ME), "You use what you have," right?

DIY Gold Succulent Vases for just $6


I've been having SO much fun decorating my new house, and figuring out where everything will go. This girl is getting her pinterest on! ;)

The space I've been working on right now is my blogging station. It's almost done, but I still have a few finishing touches before I do a full reveal.

One of the things I REALLY wanted on my desk area were some cute little plants. When I found these mini juice glasses at Walmart for $1 a piece, I just knew what I could use them for- succulent vases!

How to Add Color to Your Digital Graphics in Photoshop


How are you all doing? Hope you are having a warm spring like me! :)

Since moving into our new house, we have been so busy finding a place for everything... and really, only the kitchen is "all put together." Everything else will take some time to get it fully where I want it to be. Today I am going to be working on a super fun construction project that Silas and I came up with. I can't wait to share it with you guys!

In the meanwhile, I have a super fun graphic related project for you guys!

New Home, New Projects


I haven't disappeared from blogland, I promise! I've just been kidnapped by the ruthless task of "UNPACKING." 

I wanted to update ya'll (I can start saying that now that I'm not in New England anymore), here on my blog, on everything I've been up to this past week... other than hugging and kissing my husband a lot! Haha! ;)

YOU GUYS. I have SO MANY amazing projects planned for this house. We are really limited in what we can do to the actual place, because we are renting. But I can paint as long as we paint over everything again when we move... So I am super psyched about that!
