Homemade wreaths are my go-to for our front door. They are more affordable than buying store bought wreaths, and I get to customize my wreath to exactly what I want! I designed this Christmas wreath using an embroidery hoop, faux evergreen sprigs, gold magnolia leaves, and glittery orbs. I used neutral colors so it could stay up in January—but if you prefer you could easily substitute in red berries instead of the gold orbs.Read More
Crackling fires, mugs of hot chocolate, and snow sledding all flood my mind when I think of Winter. But I also think of the short dark days, ongoing cold temperatures, and a lack of vitamin D.
I am a designer not a scientist, but speaking from my experience: adding the color green to your home will add a dose of happy on cold, dark days. Whether it be through paint, plants, or even a favorite food.Read More
A few days ago I was pondering how to display our Christmas cards. In the past I have taped them along our chair rail or over our fireplace. My husband suggested "modern" and I thought of the wrapping paper I had purchased on clearance from World Market a few weeks ago.
I love this Christmas card holder because it is easily customizable (use whatever wrapping paper you love!) and the cards are easy to move as you get more in the mail. Also important: it is affordable and easy to make!Read More
A few months back I was preparing for Hurricane Irma to possibly go in the direction of Charlotte, NC. In preparing for the storm I purchased a few packs of LED tealights for our two kids. Tea lights don't give out an abundance of light, but they would comfort our kids at night if the power went out. We didn't end up needing the tealights so I decided to use them in a winter craft project!
A pack of 24 flameless tealights are under $10, and I used vintage jacquard ribbon (leftover from my vintage Etsy shop) to wrap around the base of the lights. The tealight ornaments remind me of mini baskets and are definitely small-budget friendly! These ornaments would also be pretty attached to a gift to add a personal touch.Read More

Wood slices are easy to work with, come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and add instant warmth to a space.Read More
