DIY Recycled Easter Bunny Vases

DIY Recycled Easter Bunny Vases

Easter is just around the corner and I can't believe how early it is this year, April 5th. I've been asked to host Easter and my house is very small so the thought of it is stressing me out! So naturally what do I do? I craft.... or eat dip. So why not do both. I had a left over salsa container (coincidence?) that I thought would make a great vase for the dinner table on Easter. I ran the jar through the dishwasher.

Bunny Baby Shower (at work)

Bunny Baby Shower (at work)

One of my friends at work recently had her baby boy, Finn, but before she did we threw her a fun baby shower at the office. Now throughout her entire pregnancy she referred to her little nugget as bunny. So naturally we threw her a bunny themed baby shower! Work showers tend to be a bit different then your regular showers, you schedule a conference room for an hour and there is usually a cake. Now do you all think I could just do that? No! Even a work baby shower has to be special, maybe just with less games.

Homemade Mason Jar Lattes

Homemade Mason Jar Lattes

Who doesn't love their $5 lattes, show of hands? Who likes paying $5 for them? That's what I thought. In an effort to save some money and not go to Starbucks every weekend I started a quest to make myself a quality coffee on the weekend. Someone at work had told me that she places milk in a cup and microwaves it for 30 seconds creating her version of steamed milk without a frother. So this past weekend my sister and I were chatting that to get foam you need air. So why not shake it in a mason jar before microwaving it.

52 Week Money Challenge

52 Week Money Challenge

I have never been the best at saving. I know it's because being a freelance designer I was always waiting to be paid by clients or the fact I was in college and then grad school. Well 2015 is the year I am changing that. I have hung up my freelance hat and taken a full time job as a designer and this is the year I vow to put a dent in my student loans and start to save to buy a house. I want to buy a house by the time I am 30 and I only have 2.5 more years to save. Now I have a budget and plans in place to accomplish those goals, you all should really check out Dave Ramsey, but in the mean time I don't want to forget about the fun things in life. Like a vacation or saving up for a big purchase.

DIY Dr. Seuss Pinwheels in 15 Minutes or Less

DIY Dr. Seuss Pinwheels in 15 Minutes or Less

Today we will be making DIY Green Eggs and Ham pinwheels.  Dr. Seuss was a big part of my childhood. I remember not only reading Green Eggs and Ham but also eating green eggs and ham at the same time. So when I heard that the Craft Lightning theme was Dr. Seuss this month I knew I had to be apart of it. Craft Lightning projects are crafts that can be completed in 15 minutes or less.
