Sometimes I tend to be (un)fashionably late with things, and National holidays are no exception. In this instance, it was just to make sure we didn’t miss anything extra special that some of our favorite bloggers might’ve whipped up for National Donut Day, and of course, we want to take everything into strategic account before pulling together 10 recipes and DIY’s to celebrate donuts.
We wouldn’t want to lead astray on your sugar treasure hunt, and these projects and recipes do not disappoint!…

As promised after making you go through house hunting choices with me, I wanted to share a cool (and super easy!) DIY concept for making a space your own that’s renter friendly, like this DIY retro wall panel installation. Not joking, I want to panel an accent wall in every room right now. How cool would it be to have one with some accents of metallic gold too?! Ah!
Before I get too off track with even more wild and crazy ideas, I’m going to show just how easy it is to make a retro accent wall of your own that won’t make your landlord (or your Rent.com apartment find) hate you when you leave, and for those of you that own, this is perfect if you’re afraid of too much (wall accent) commitment!…

In honor of National Burger Day today, I wanted to name this post “DIY mini macaron cheeseburgers and fries… and milkshakes… and sprinkles”, but Google said that was too long, so just consider the mini milkshake and sprinkles an added bonus from me to you. Technically I would never have known it was National Burger Day if it wasn’t for Kelly (thanks for having my back Kel!), but the point is is that I’m not one to pass up a good #glossaryofmacs opportunity anyways, now am I?!
Also, can we have an open honest discussion about how freaking tricky making mini sugar cookie french fries can be?! I mean, holy baked goods. It took me three tries to get something that didn’t look like giant, deflated fingers next to these mini cheeseburgers, but, I think I figured out the secret!…

I, Carly, have a thing for flowers. I know, that’s probably pretty obvious at this point. But really, it’s true. I spend a good portion of my time playing with them. And when I’m not playing with them, I’m usually thinking about them. As a matter of fact, the only other creative outlet I’ve found that gives me as much artistic pleasure is writing. (And food, but we’ll save that for another post.) So it was only natural that I would eventually start writing in flowers, which led me to these DIY flower artwork printables.
Sure, it’s a little on the time-consuming side, but who can complain when you get to hash out your thoughts AND soak in a little piece of nature’s beauty, all at once? Not I. On the contrary, I highly recommend it. All you have to do is go to your local craft store to pick up some white foam core board. Then swing by the flower market on your way home, and you’re in business! Or you can print and frame the flower artwork from our phrases…
