Easy DIY Easter Egg Art Prints

Easter is quickly approaching!  Can you believe it is only a week away? I am usually not one to go all out for holidays when it comes to decorating. (Well, with Christmas being the exception!)  In fact, I wasn’t planning on decorating for Easter at all this year.  But...

DIY Anthropologie Inspired Necklace

Winter is still hanging on tight here in Kansas City, but that hasn’t stopped me from window shopping spring’s latest styles.  I am especially loving all the bright spring colors that are showing up all over the place! One of my all time favorite stores is Anthropologie–unfortunately my bank...

DIY Coconut Ginger Sugar Scrub

Since I live in Kansas City, it isn’t ever safe to say that Spring is officially here until mid April or so.  We have a pretty bi-polar weather system around here!  I will say though, this week has been BEAUTIFUL.  I’m talking sunny and 65-70º.  This makes me one...

DIY Text Wall Art

On a recent trip to Ikea I decided on a whim to buy a few 8×10 frames.  I have heard so many great things about Ikea’s frames and decided at 5 dollars a piece I could spare the 20 dollars and give them a try.  I actually didn’t have...

5-Minute DIY Heart Candles

Ok, I have to admit that I have been bah-humbuging a bit about Valentine’s Day this year.  Some years I love it, some years I’d rather skip it all together.  This year was turning into the latter…until I found these. Spanish conversation hearts!!!!!!! Yes, yes, I know this is not...

Five Easy DIY Valentine Cards

Valentine’s day is just around the corner!  This year I thought I’d go ahead and make my own valentines.  I had a large amount of blank white cards that I had bought before Christmas with the good intentions of making homemade Christmas cards.  December got ahead of me and...

Instagram Wall

Hey everyone!  Ali here, from Gimme Some Oven, and today I’m stoked to finally (3 months late!) be sharing all about my new Instagram wall. As some of you might know, I moved into a new loft in December and remodeled a new white kitchen, which I adore.  But...

Friday Favorites: Valentine’s Day!

Hey guys!  Hope your week has been great!  I know at least in Kansas City the seasonal depression has hit hard.  It’s very cold here and has lately made me want to just curl up under a blanket and never leave the house!  As far as I am concerned...

Three Simple Ways to Get Organized!

Warning, this post is not going to be my most glamorous post!  This week began the task of organizing my laundry closet.  Because Tanner and I live in a loft we don’t have a lot of storage space.  We need to use what we have wisely!  In our living...

Friday Favorites: 2014 Planners

It seems like everyone is on a quest to becoming more organized this year.  I have had requests for a planner round-up, which in turn made me realize that I should probably be getting myself a planner!  As I mentioned in this post, I am not a naturally organized...
