Ombre Painted Corkboard

Today was my kid's first day of school and I was a mixed bag of emotions.  On one hand I'm super excited for them to head back to school and for all of the adventures, growth and learning they will do this year.  On the other hand I am going to miss the carefree days of summer and all the laughter and memories we made.  One thing is certain I'm not quite ready for all the paperwork, schedules and homework!  In an attempt to start the school year off organized I created this … [Read more...]

DIY Citrus Painted Canvas Shoes

You can never have enough cute shoes, right?! In the summer it's especially fun to have colorful kicks that coordinate with cute summer outfits and just shout summertime!  I can't think of anything more summery than bright colored citrus fruit, so naturally a pair of DIY Citrus Painted Canvas Shoes became a must. I recently decided to make a lemonade stand kit for my girls, and while I was making it I thought to myself "wouldn't they look cute selling their lemonade in adorable outfits … [Read more...]

Summer Paint Pour Canvas

Today is the first day of summer break for us and I'm feeling all the colorful, happy vibes that come with this season.  I am looking forward to lots of lazy days spent by the pool, vacations, and simply enjoying a slower pace schedule with my kids.  Each year as my kids get older I realize that these sweet summer moments are fleeting and before you know it they won't be around much.  Just like these moments with my kids I want to make summer last, so I decided to create a … [Read more...]

DIY Hand Painted Pendant Necklaces

The other day the temperatures in Texas started to warm up and now I'm craving all things spring.  I am ready to break out the flip flops and the brightly colored clothes.  But, if I'm being completely honest my wardrobe lacks a lot of color (I own a lot of black.) Which is why I decided to add a pop of color with some new DIY bright colored hand painted pendant necklaces . I've been working with DecoArt for a few years and one of the the things I love about working with … [Read more...]

DIY Hand-painted Pendant Necklace and Jewelry Tray

Anyone else feel like winter stretched on forever? After a fairly blah start to the new year I'm ready to for a fresh start, and craving sunshine and color!

Fluid Acrylic Poured Canvas Art

One of my goals for 2018 was to push myself to try new craft mediums and projects and to branch out of my creative bubble.  I decided to tackle one of the current trends and techniques that is all the rage lately, and to be honest intimidates me the most!  I teamed up with DecoArt to create my own fluid acrylic poured canvas art, and I have to say I'm in love with this paint trend! I'm sharing all the details and the supplies you will need for this project on the DecoArt blog … [Read more...]

Farmhouse Style Hot Cocoa Bar

This month DecoArt challenged us to create a project that was warm and cozy for our monthly challenge.  When it comes to warm and cozy during the winter months I can't think of anything better than sipping on a cup of hot cocoa wrapped in a warm blanket.  So, I did what any normal person would do and I created a farmhouse style hot cocoa bar that we can use all winter long! I am a big fan of a styled bar cart, as you may have noticed when I created this DIY Metallic Bar Cart, or … [Read more...]
