I’m a total sucker for cute packaging. In fact, just last week I bought 4 more macaroons than I really needed just because the mint green box was too cute to pass up (don’t judge me). I want people to have the same experience and excitement when it comes to the S+C shop items, so I’ve been working on designing some materials for the launch at the end of this month.
I decided on magnetic business cards to ship with items as a goodie of sorts instead of traditional cards that tend to get tossed. I combined bold stripes & colors with an understated logo so that it’s cute enough to use, but doesn’t scream sales pitch (I hate sales pitches). I designed these myself but had them printed courtesy of BuildASign.com, and they turned out great! What do you think? Is this something you would keep?
I’m not much for DIY projects that require a lot of weird tools that could result in the loss of a limb in the name of a cute light-up letter (although it may still be worth it). No, I prefer simple projects that pack a big punch, like this DIY simple marquee letter that I created for Grey Likes Nesting. If you can manage a knife and string lights, you can make this. Oh, and did I mention that it costs under $15? Can’t beat that!
Sometimes my best remedy for not feeling well is just a cookie (who doesn’t feel better after a cookie, ya know?). When you combine this theory with a lack of energy and ingredients, it results in me getting creative with what I have. This is how my cream cheese frosted sugar cookie combination was born.
I used boxed recipes for the cookies and icing because normal people don’t make cookies from scratch for themselves when they’re sick, (at least that’s what I like to tell myself). If you’re one of the exceptions, please pray for me to be more like you.
Once upon a time, I used Twitter simply for my melodramatic rantings about boys and college escapades. Thankfully, that died off and I ceased to tweet at all until recently when I read a neat marketing article about it. Alas, I’m back on the boat. I have to admit, I’m much more into Instagram (who doesn’t love seeing what complete strangers are eating?) but I’m working on my Twitter swag anyways. How about you, what’s your favorite social media? P.s.- let’s tweet to each other, okay? Okay.

I stumbled across Society Social a few weeks ago, and I’ve been mentally redecorating my house ever since. I want to jump up and down and tell you to race over there right now, but because I’m a good friend, I’ll warn you in advance that you may compare all future couches (and carts, pillows, chairs, and tables) to everything on your Society Social wish list from here on out. Oh, and in case your a one of kind type of shopper, they have a vintage selection too.
What makes a good DIY a great DIY? When it’s free. This way it’s no harm, no foul if you accidentally mess it up or decide you hate it. To top it all off, these DIY paint swatch flowers fold up when you’re finished using them! Free, easy, storable, can you ask for more? The most these could cost you is a few weird glances from the paint counter guy, and I can deal with that for the sake of good craft or two.
Sketch a leaf shape onto the back of a color swatch, and cut it out.
Use the cut-out as a template to make the rest of the leaves.
Hole punch the bottom corners of four leaves, and then insert a brad to secure them.
To make the flowers into a garland, wrap twine around the brad a few times and pull tight.
