DIY Leather Bracelet

August 16, 2014 by Liz

Happy Saturday friends! This past week I was feeling the itch to expand my jewelry collection. Anyone that knows me would say that I am a pretty simple gal when it comes to the jewelry department. In fact, most days I don’t wear any at all. But last week…I was feeling it.

My go-to piece of jewelry is usually a simple necklace, but for this specific moment I was really wanting a bracelet. I don’t know if anyone else has this issue, but for me, bracelets are hard too find. They tend to be way too big for my wrists and can sometimes be uncomfortable. But I have recently been experimenting with leather remnants and decided this was the perfect opportunity to make a bracelet of my own.

Here’s how I made my own simple DIY leather bracelet.

DIY Terrarium Mobile

August 3, 2014 by Liz

Goodness this summer is flying by. I can’t believe it is already August! Surprisingly for the Midwest, we really haven’t had a terribly hot summer. Because of that, I think it is causing this season to go by faster than normal. Or maybe it is just because I am so busy. ;)

But in an effort to keep the summer vibes going, I felt inspired to create something green. I absolutely love the look that live plants bring to a home. They give color and life unlike any other decoration. Unfortunately, though, I have learned in the past few years that I cannot for the life of me keep indoor plants alive!

Granted, there was one season in my life where I decided to give it a go and buy a small succulent garden. I thought they were doing great, but not even three months down the road they were all dead. Story of my plant-growing life. Luckily for me, though, faux succulent plants are deceitfully realistic looking!

So because I cannot master the art of indoor plants, I give you…a Faux Succulent Terrarium. And it is just as cute as the real thing, with 0% chance of it dying on me within days! Check out the tutorial below to learn how to make one for yourself.

DIY Hanging Flower Box

July 19, 2014 by Liz

Happy Weekend! This week has been filled with all things summer. Grilling out, iced coffee, and trips to the farmer’s market were all highlights for me.

Every time I go to the farmer’s market I get the urge to buy one of their beautiful bouquets of fresh flowers. They are always so cheery and full of life. I have learned though, that my poor husband just can’t handle those beauties in our home. Let’s just say his allergies are a little out of control. So, because I can’t have flowers inside my home, I have started decorating the outside with flowers, and I love it! Recently, I made a simple flower box to hang outside on my porch. But you’ll never guess the main supply…

DIY Herb Planter

May 10, 2014 by Liz

My mom and I were talking the other day and both shared how much we love having fresh herbs around to cook with. We also discussed that prices on said herbs can be so expensive! So later in the week, my husband and I decided that what better time to fulfill my mom’s dream of having her very own backyard herb garden…or at least a small herb box!

This project was actually very simple, and could easily be done in an afternoon. So if you are still in need of the perfect Mother’s Day gift, take a quick trip to your local hardware store and get crafting!
