iPhone Cases for Creatives

There have been so many cute and fun iphone cases coming out recently, i just had to share!

First up is one of the most unique iPhone cases I’ve seen. Which is saying a lot since theres SO many crazy ones out there.

Its a cross stitch iphone case! I really love when old arts like crocheting and cross stitch get a new breath of fresh air and creativity. The fun thing with this you can take out the stitching and make something new whenever you want!

Another one of my favorites are by Satchel & Sage. Seen this design before? Yup! I bought a print at the Renegade Craft Fair and haven’t gotten enough of it since. Read all about that story here. To purchase an iphone Case from Satchel & Sage, head over here!

This one from Amy Sia I almost bought when i saw it because it was so dang cute.

I definitely have a huge love for watercolor so i just about died when i saw those. Love this geo watercolor by her as well!

Now all i need to do is actually upgrade to the iPhone 4… or wait for the 5?! Decisions, decisions…

Kitchen Art

So these guys all started from my constant need to check kitchen conversions online – im just bad at remembering how many cups in a liter, tablespoons in teaspoons, etc. so i decided to make a quick an easy “art” guide right there on the wall. So i made some more :) Find them all on my Etsy shop, here! Without the logo at the bottom, of course!

Cant wait to see this guys in my kitchen:

Can you tell I got a part time job at starbucks?!

Also made this chart to remember cooking temperatures – super helpful!

Hopefully these art charts will be helpful while cooking up some delish grub!

I loved this booth – the handmade fabrics in fun mod designs and colors. Had to force myself to slowly back away. Head over to Cloth & Ink to check out all the goods.

One of my favorite was Satchel and Sage where I picked up an oh so fun feather print.

Seriously, how cute is this “birds of a feather” print?! Now i just need to run to Ikea to pick up a nice new frame for it!

Have a good weekend, Lovelies!

Memorial Day Sales!

Well, its memorial day and of course that means great sales! Yesterday me and a buddy, Amy headed over to one of my all time favorite stores in the world. West Elm! Because of Memorial Day, everything thats already reduced is on sale another 15% in addition to whats already marked down! On top of that, they were trying to sell their floor models so a lot of items were marked down by 100s of bucks! Halla!

This table I’ve been eyeing for a while… our ourdoor table isnt so much an outdoor table. Its more a cheap $10 target temporary that is falling apart with all the moisture. But at 70 bucks, i just couldn’t make the purchase. BUT there was a floor model on sale for 30 plus the 15% off! Still suprised I didn’t snatch that up… so cute!

Amy was eyeing these pillows for her living room. But i thought it would be fun to find just a plain white pillow cover, get some fabric paint and paint it yourself! That would be so much more fun (and cheaper!)

Can’t wait to have a sweet dining room and dining table! Love the mix of the cozy chairs and the bench!

You know i have a love for succulents, I’m diggin them as a centerpiece…

I am definitely lovin this centerpiece – definitely a little messy for Memorial Day weekend but the mix of silver and teal just makes me happy…

Love this guy. Definitely approve of the faux animal head mounts. Always creeps me out to have an actually dead animal head on the wall. So sad. This is a very agreeable alternative.

Though this would be a horrible idea in my house (Im pretty sure I’ve mentioned how horribly clumsy I am, but i just loved those dozens of bottles all clumped together. Please dont do this at your house either. I think it works for West Elm, but not a home. Maybe pick up half a dozen. Not 100.

LOVE the mix of white lacquer and whitewash of these dressers and bed frame. It just has a beachy spa-like feel to it. I dig it.

I laughed out loud when i saw this cute lil owl in his cage. Poor lil guy.. his friends are free but he is not.

I ALWAYS love the displays… this would be awesome! Just paint one fun wall with chalkboard paint and add frames! Such a fun idea!

I love paint. Having “painted” bedding is definitely my idea of a good time. Plus i love the blues!

Amy crashed after a long day into one of the most comfy, absurdly expensive outdoor chairs in existence. Pretty sure its around 1,300. But its on sale! (for maybe 1,200…)

So go out and get you some cheap ol furniture. Also, did anyone notice the Room Store going out of business? So sad but you can definitely grab a great piece of furniture for super cheap!

Happy Memorial Day, Y’all!

DIY Mini Artist Canvas Magnets

I got these lovely mini 3X3 canvases from my mama for Christmas – yes, its been that long! What a great stocking stuffer idea, huh! Anyway, they jsut sat there begging to be painted but I was pretty torn on what to do with them exactly. Yes, they were cute but what the heck would you actually do with mini canvas?

You make Bad A refrigerator magnets, thats what!

I hand painted them with paint markers.

On the back i attached a square of magnet sheet. It is Avery Magnet sheets.

And voila! You can hold up all the dozens of wedding save the dates you’ve been getting.

I ended up leaving them set up like this… just like the simplicity of it!

I also made a mini version of my painting from the lake!

These guys were super easy and very fun so go grab some and try them out.

Lake Painting

Nope. Not a painting of the lake. Rather a painting i did at the lake. Back in this post i shared my wonderful vacay with my bff. Here is a shot from my set up on the deck overlooking the beautiful lake!

We decided to hang it over our couch and my husband actually loves it! I thought the pinkish hue and purples wouldn’t be his idea of awesomeness but he said, and i quote “I like the meshing. its all like… bluuuhhh… colors!” all while attempting to “mesh” with his hands. Thats my lovely husband! The art critic.

See the meshing? And the “bluuuuhhh… colors!”?  I know i do.

Its up on Etsy now if you wana see an identical beauty above your couch for your husband to critique!
