I don’t know if I’m just feeling really sappy because of the last few weeks being really insane (or if I’m in denial of being sappy by nature), but I seriously love this “Follow me to..” series by photographer Murad Osmann. The whole concept of him being lead around the world by his love so endearing, don’t you?
I also can’t help but think that this would be the cutest engagement (or announcement) photo concept to send out! Kind of like a story of how you got to the aisle. You know me, I always have to turn it into something…

In case the title didn’t fully explain it, I want everything in the 2013 Chinti and Parker Spring/Summer collection. Polka dots? Stripes? Colorblock? It just has a my name all over it! I’d wear it all.. at once. Okay not really all at once, that would be too much awesome for one person to handle.
What’s your favorite piece? To be honest, I buy things that I love and then wear the crap out of them until they look like colorful trash bags. Am I the only one?

I’ve been meaning to share the DIY necklaces that we made at the Langford Market event for a few weeks now, but as I’ve whined about already, it’s been a crazy few weeks. I’ll spare you the rest of my sob stories that accompany them, and announce these sweet little tassel necklaces. Better late than never, right?
- Embroidery floss
- Necklace chain
- 8mm jump ring
- 12 mm jump ring
- Round nose pliers
- Bristle brush
- Ball bottom pendant clamps (online or at JoAnn Fabric)
You can cut the tassels as long as short as you’d like but I really prefer the short fat ones, much how I like my pets to be.
And you can group multiple tassels onto one loop for a fuller look or to mix and match with your outfits. Doesn’t get much better than that!
Now that we’ve got all of our thousand boxes moved into our new house, I’m on the hunt for home DIY’s to die for. (I thought about making that into an acronym for you, but it’s a little to long winded.)
First up are these stunningly pretty miniature hanging garden planters by Rachael, the DIY genius behind the blog Penelope & Pip. Like I needed another reason to have a girl crush on her..
You can find the full tutorial and photos right here on the Frankie Magazine blog. Wouldn’t these also make really adorable favor cups? You know I would be shoving at least three in my purse!
Yes, I am alive and well. There were a few hiccups in the moving process including a life threatening gas leak in the new house, among many other things, but alas we have officially moved all of our stuff. Thank God my dad flew in to help us with everything this week or I would have been in a gas filled room somewhere, weeping my DIY heart out. It’s been a long week.
Needless to say, I have quite a few fish to fry still, so I’ll spare you the moving boxes and leave you with these DIY fabric scented sachets that I made for Ikea Houston. Let me know what you think!
P.s- thanks for all of the well wishes on moving and Martha Stewart, it means the world to me :)
I hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day! Did even of you happen to make a Sugar & Cloth DIY for you Valentine? I’d love to see it!
I gave my Valentine (aka hubby) the gift of electric and internet by waiting at our new house all day for the utility guys. It was all so romantic. On the bright side I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am to move, no more commuting! Eek! Forgive me in advance if I’m a little of my regular DIY schedule over the week.
Want to hear some really cool news that will hold you over until then? I was chosen as a blogger for the new Martha Stewart Living program, 12 Months of Martha! You can read all about the program and see my first DIY appearance on the Martha Stewart Crafts Dept. blog right here, someone pinch me!
