I love this simple jewelry box from A Beautiful Mess. Get the how-to here.
I’ve officially entered the 21st century. At least it feels like it with my new smartphone.
(If you don’t have instagram, get it. I spend more time on it than actually using my phone for communication purposes.)
But the more I looked for cases, the more depressed I felt. Blah to otterboxes/hand boats, blah to plain colors. Even blah to Kate Spade cases, which just weren’t what I was looking for. But for protection purposes, I needed one.
So I purchased a clear one, and shortly afterwards realized the potential sitting in my hands.
Using an old Anthropology catalog and my favorite fortune cookie fortune, I created my own!
This is satisfaction, my friends. At least, until I change it.
I’ve had a crafty few days, inspired by a picture I posted on Friday Favorites last week. I spent the weekend making this cowl neck scarf, which I LOVE and have worn almost every cold day since.
I love the mustard yellow and the pattern is wonderfully simple. I just created a chain, and looped it around to create a circle, and just kept on with the single stitch. Sweet and simple.
In honor of Valentines Day, I made my next door neighbors bran-muffins, which sounds odd, but it’s what they like. And that’s why I like them.
Here are my bran-muffins, V-day edition:
I was quite proud! The recipe can be found here.
And I FINALLY finished my calendar. (It’s February, I know.) I also completed my gallery wall, as inspired by the new Hellogoodbye album cover.
I’m feeling quite pleased with myself!
When fall rolls around, I always feel the need to be doing something crafty. Or redecorating. And I was quite inspired by this simple and bright apartment.
(And thanks for those words of wisdom Micheal Jackson.)
I need one (or two) of these record shelves desperately. Large silver apple? Not so desperate.
I love this mantle piece as well. Our rosebush is still blooming, despite the November air. It feels like such a contradiction to smell a new rosebud while wearing a winter jacket and scarf.
