I’ve wanted one of the woven wall hangs that are popping up everywhere forever, but the honest truth is I can’t really swing purchasing wall art in that price range at the moment. I’m also 120% positive that I don’t have the attention span for learning how to weave one, so I decided to make my own version of a wooly (that’s a technical word right?) wall piece myself with this DIY pom pom wall hang.

Lucky for me I happen to be dating a guy that loves to help, and he reallllly loves to make pom poms (it’s true, he says it’s relaxing), so this turned out to be a not-so-time consuming project, but you can also purchase pre made poms on Etsy too! While you’re saving yourself all kinds of pom pom making time you can now be pondering what Jared is going to look like in thirty years with knitting gear in hand, cause clearly that’s where he’s headed (love you, babe!)…

If there is one thing the world is willing to agree on these days, it’s brunch. We could agree on absolutely nothing at all but almost everyone would be down for some solid, community brunch plans this weekend. That being said, I swear it’s also one of the most anticipated meals ever on account of the fact that everyone is cramming into your favorite place at the same time, but these DIY brunch macarons don’t make you wait for a table, plus they give a whole new meaning to the word.

Sure, you don’t exactly need real butter an syrup for these “waffles”, and you don’t need a knife for the “grilled ham”, but they would make for an awesomely quirky way to serve breakfast in bed for Mother’s Day or a sweet nothing gesture for your brunch loving friends, don’t you think?…

Since I’m not quite at the stage of having kids just yet, I stick with my fur kids. Thomas and I go way back to my college days when I rescued him from the middle of a four lane road and he was just big enough to fit in the palm of my hand. I bottled fed him,made my dad extremely angry for having a pet in our college rental house, got super attached, and now here we are almost seven years later, with another birthday just around the corner.

He’s spoiled as all get out and refuses to eat any other wet food besides Fancy Feast gravy lover’s and broths (I stopped trying to even trick him into a different kind at least three years ago), so when Fancy Feast approached me about partnering to promote their Ways To Wow campaign featuring the new chicken flavors, I did what any cat parent would do… I tried to see if I could snag a free lifetime supply, of course! Just kidding. I actually just tried to stick a birthday candle in a bowl of Fancy Feast Broths with chicken for a photo-op.

Sadly that didn’t work out, so I went with the next best thing you can put a candle with: DIY animal ear cake toppers. They’re like a step up from a DIY party hat, my friends, except this time everyone at the party will want one…
