If I’m known for something when all of this DIY madness comes to an end someday, I hope it’s as the girl who used weird objects for completely opposite purposes than what they’re actually made for… that sounds fun. It’s definitely not going to be for my shining use of original one-liners considering all I could come up with for this DIY patterned matches vanity tray was “light your morning routine on fire”, which seemed a bit too tragic.

Lucky for you I’m elaborating even further on this matches discussion over on Designlovefest, where you can see the full scoop on how to make your own! Best of luck!

I don’t make backdrops often, but when I do, I like to make sure that take as long as humanly possible to create. Just kidding. That’s technically not true though my previous experiences my state otherwise after this paper flower backdrop and now this DIY beach ball backdrop made of paper lanterns. What can I say? I just love over-committing.

In all seriousness though, when my friend Beth over at The Manor asked if I wanted to be a part of her 60’s summer soiree inspired launch party, I just HAD to make something out of beach balls but I did a long enough stint at Smilebooth to know a shiny backdrop is a big no, no, so regular beach balls were out!…

I seriously want to gold foil ALL THE THINGS. It’s a problem. I hope I don’t look back at these years and have the same feelings as I do when I look at old middle school photos of myself with my over-plucked eyebrows and massive braces (you know, the kind of feeling when you wonder why no one stepped in to save you from yourself). In this instance it may be too late, because now I’ve gone and created DIY faux brass drawer fronts on all of our desk drawers.

I can’t help it, especially since I discovered this new metallic gold foil that’s only feeding my habit because a) it’s only $10, and B) because you now get a giant roll of it that’s actually big enough to cover lots of things (which previously did not exist in my world). I hope you guys have prepared yourselves for gold madness around here…

When I think of the word Hawaiian several things come to mind: pina coladas, bikini’s, beaches, Hawaiian punch (weird, I know. I don’t even drink them), Hawaiian rolls (you delicious things, you), and candles. Now if you’re still with me after that train wreck of a thought process, I’m happy to bring you a simple DIY vanilla orange mint sugar scrub that I love to make that helps me pretend that I’m in a tranquil, Hawaiian place (plus it helps you get ready for your upcoming beach days) as part of our little collaboration with Glade.

Now prepare yourself for silky smooth skin in all of five minutes with this super simple recipe that you can make while thinking of all of the things the word Hawaiian brings to mind. That’s totally what all of the cool kids do to prep for summer right?…
