Easy DIY Easter Egg Art Prints

April 12, 2014 by Liz

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 when I saw Ali’s 4-Ingredient Easter Egg Oreo Truffles, I felt inspired to not only indulge in some delicious Easter treats, but also make a few egg art prints to brighten up my home!

These prints were simple, took very few materials, and were also so much fun to make! I haven’t gotten around to dying Easter eggs at all this season, and most likely with the way things are shaping up with a busy spring, I probably won’t get to this year. But I went all out decorating these “paper” Easter eggs!

So if you are feeling the itch to decorate eggs this year or if you’re looking for some last-minute decor for Easter, maybe try making a few egg prints! They sure do last longer than a boiled egg! ;)

DIY Anthropologie Inspired Necklace

March 29, 2014 by Liz

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 account can’t handle my love for the store. I recently found this necklace ($88) and thought I would give it a try to make it on my own. I ended up being able to make it happen for $5 worth of supplies, making the actual individual necklace itself ring in at less than $1! Plus, it’s really quick and easy to make.

Check it out!

DIY Coconut Ginger Sugar Scrub

March 15, 2014 by Liz

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 happy camper. With the weather warming up I’m beginning to think about all my dry and not-so-pretty winter skin. Let’s just say my skin was definitely not shorts and a t-shirt ready.

Ever since I was a little girl I have always loved body scrubs. I remember walking into bath and body works with my mom and immediately heading towards the wash sink to try out their latest scent! As I’ve grown older I still enjoy a good body scrub, but if I’m being honest, some of their scents can be a little overwhelming for me. That’s when it occurred to me, why not just make my own! This scrub is simple, needs very few ingredients and definitely leaves my skin feeling smooth.

DIY Text Wall Art

February 22, 2014 by Liz

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 a plan for them when I bought them, but I knew that with a simple white frame anything was possible! I have always been a fan of text art, and am currently loving a simple black and white look in our home. This project was so easy — and for two new pieces of art it cost me less than $15.00. You can’t beat that!

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.

Five Easy DIY Valentine Cards

February 8, 2014 by Liz

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 the cards never were made, so I decided to use them for Valentine’s day. These cards are simple, cost effective and use hardly any materials so they are great for just about anyone to make! Happy Valentine’s day friends!

Instagram Wall

February 6, 2014 by Ali

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 the entryway right next to the kitchen was a bit of an eyesore. You’ll have to check out the photos below to see, but basically, the guys before me who designed the loft thought it would be a great idea to make two gaps in the entryway wall (right as you walk in) so that you can see into the bedroom. So basically, there’s just a big panel of wall with two vertical gaps on each side. Awkward. But still, a decent space to display something.
