Wet Bandits Halloween Costume

2 Feb

So, I love Halloween. I’m not really into scary movies, or candy corn, but costumes? Yes, please. I look forward to putting together creative DIY costumes all year long. Best costume to date?

5 Jul

I LOVE weddings. I’m not yet married, but when it comes time to plan my own wedding you can bet there will be a LOT of personal touches that I will make myself.

Framed Fabric Wall Art

13 Mar

In the living room of our apartment we painted the longest wall in the room a deep rusty orange. In order to make this bold statement wall flow well with the rest of the space I wanted to choose some colorful artwork.
