Max Burdette Memorial: Help us in Supporting My Cousin’s Charity!

Help us in Supporting My Cousin's Charity by attending our Give Back Party with Kendra Scott in Houston on May 23rd!

If you’re a regular reader, you probably know a bit about my cousin Max’s passing at age 17 from liver cancer. My Aunt and Uncle established a memorial charity that donates 100% of proceeds to St. Jude’s, where he received care in memory of his story. It’s also my chosen charity for the 5% that we give back from Sugar & Cloth sponsored campaigns.

I’m asking you to help us in supporting my cousin’s charity with our upcoming collaboration with Kendra Scott Gives Back.

Ah, the weird life that is blogging, am I right?!Out of the many rabbit holes I’ve fallen down with this unorthodox career of mine, getting to collaborate on a DIY video series with Drew Scott from The Property Brothers was a pretty exciting one!

We created three short, sweet, and very random DIY videos (with serious kudos going to Linda for the ideas and leg work) while they were in Texas filming. While I’m clearly biased,

DIY Chocolate Truffle Flight Printables

Okay, am I the only one in the world who hasn’t heard of a super taster? I read about them for the first time the other day and can’t stop thinking about it. Apparently, some people experience taste at a far more intense level than the rest of us and have super sensitive taste buds…

Though I definitely don’t fall into this category (I’ll eat almost anything as long as it’s something I wouldn’t call by name…), I can safely say that my taste buds pay extra attention when it comes to sugar.

Growing a Following: Tips, Tricks, & Hacks for Instagram Stories (+Video!)

Tips, Tricks, and Hacks for Instagram stories by Sugar & Cloth, an award winning DIY blog.

When Instagram first rolled out their Stories feature (aka snaps 2.0), I think I can speak for all of us when I say I was a tiny bit skeptical. Mostly I was seriously overwhelmed by the idea of having to create even more content to keep up on all of the social platforms. I never really got into Snapchat for personal use because my everyday business is so social media heavy that I didn’t want another thing to think about outside of that.

DIY Pegboard Wall Art

In case you’re one of those people that like to switch up their Spring and Summer decor with minimal commitment and investment, this one’s for you! That said, you do have to enjoy a little crafty elbow grease, but you’ll love all the possibilities of this DIY pegboard wall art.

In hindsight, I wish I would have used the natural brown side of the pegboard instead of the white since it doesn’t pop quite as much with the white on white.

DIY Hanging Flower Wall Installation

I am way, way late to the game on sharing this DIY hanging flower wall installation that we made for our Kate Spade shoot a few months back. I’d give you a good reason why, but I honestly don’t really have one. Basically, I’m just a mess. Thankfully flowers are the perfect “I’m sorry” statement, so let’s just say that alllll of these hanging blooms are for you. And you, and you.

Luckily it won’t take you nearly as long to make your own version as it did for me to write this tutorial.

Printable Fabric Flag Word Art

Printable Fabric Flag Word Art - Sugar & Cloth - Houston Blogger - DIY - Home Decor

Every year when Spring rolls around, I get the urge to hit the refresh button. Pack away the sweaters, deep clean the fridge, and tweak my home decor.

This year I, Erin, wanted some new large scale art for my studio, but I didn’t have the budget to invest in a framed statement piece, so I threw out my preconceived ideas of what art should be. I decided to enlist fabric and something as simple as a beautiful word to create an impactful piece for my studio walls.
