If you ever find yourself with a plethora of princess ornaments with nowhere to go… …might I suggest hanging an $8 silver tree from Big Lots on your plant hook, slapping those babies on, and calling it day? Works for … Read More

oh, Ikea…

Remember when I made this awesome diorama/room for Jane’s (my) tiny Ikea furniture? Yeah, well Ikea had to go and one up me.   But I’m ok with it because it’s pretty cool. I’m so glad Ikea read my previous … Read More

Slacker Tuesday

I’ve never offered a discount in my etsy shop before, but after 5 years, I’m finally throwing caution to the wind! Yippeeeeeee!!!! But also, ugh. My blog and shop have both recently turned five. On one hand, yay for me … Read More

fall, y’all

So, right before I take down my fall decorations, I thought I’d document how I transitioned from Halloween to not-Halloween-just-hanging-out-waiting-for-Christmas. This is pretty much the extent of it. I crafted a couple other things but decided they were too traditional looking for … Read More


1 – 2 – 3 – 4 I pinned these 4 random photos the other day, and it was like they all gravitated towards each other like a magnet. I need this to turn into a instagram filter of some … Read More

How did I not know about this?!

Happy Halloween…

I love you, ebay

I’m on fire! Another blog post! Yessssssss… I didn’t even know I needed a Halloween charm bracelet until Pinterest showed me this one: But the link is to a bead-selling website, and I don’t need 95 black cat charms or … Read More

I crafted!

So, a few weeks ago, Jane Browning asked me when I was going to get out our Halloween decorations… Yeah, I didn’t have any. I go all out for Christmas, but nothing for any other holiday or season. Hell, I’m … Read More

time for a new cell phone case

Oh yes, I got a new phone. And it is glorious. And it has a power button that works (!). All I need now is a new case. Chris is letting me borrow a plastic bumper thing he had which … Read More

the beginnings of next year’s calendar

It’s that time of year again when I “torture” myself with creating a new calendar. They are definitely a labor of love for me, which is why I will no longer be designing a desk calendar. The one I’m designing … Read More

Preschool and free printables

In honor of Jane Marie Browning’s first day ever of preschool, I’d like to share some free printables that I created which can be used to make a school memories book/journal. I couldn’t find one that I liked, so I … Read More

tiny IKEA furniture

I discovered this tiny adorable IKEA doll furniture via Door Sixteen and knew that Jane (I) had to have it. We were in Cincinnati this past weekend, so of course we picked up a set. The package it came in … Read More

new chair for the spare room

A.Z. Vintage came through for me again! I’d been needing a new desk chair in the spare room, and lo and behold, this showed up in her shop: Yes, thank you, I’ll take it. So now my dilemma is, do … Read More


My aunt asked me to design an invitation for her mother-in-law’s 90th birthday party. I needed to create something that was traditional, feminine, and celebratory but not to birthday-y, all the while staying in line with my own personal flair. … Read More

I just designed a new print to hang in our kitchen. Would it look good in yours?

3 random things

1. I don’t have a bike, but if I did, it would need a planter: 2. As if taking pictures of t-shirts in gift shops wasn’t nerdy enough, I also took a picture of a picture of Denny’s hanging in … Read More
