Our store opens is just 10 days! Errrr Mahhhh Gaaawwwwd!I’m so excited, and I have lots to tell you all! I feel like I haven’t written a blog post in forever, which is kinda true. Since I knew we would be busy leading up to launch I had prepped a lot of my posts in advance. But, as I knew they would the posts ran out. So, today I’m writing to you straight from the hip as we get ready to head back to the Garment District for the last batch of merchandise before we launch! With that in mind PLEASE forgive any typo’s or extreme grammar fails. My editor won’t get to see this one before I hit publish. (Sorry D) Continue reading
My inner child gets all excited around this time of year. I just can’t wait to decorate Easter eggs. It’s a whole lot of nostalgia in one tiny little project.

I’ve tried so many different ways over the years, and this is the first year that I have taken on the decorating of cheepy dollar store plastic eggs. Continue reading

This project has been floating around Pinterest for forever I’m sure. But, I’ve always wanted to make a set so that’s what I did! After searching for a long, long time I finally found the perfect little figures at my local Dollar Tree. The nice people at Home Depot were kind enough to give me two 4″ x 4″ square blocks of wood from the trash pile. Plus, I found the spray paint on sale for 99. cents bringing the total cost of this project to $3! Now that’s my kind of DIY!
The wood was really rough so I spent some time sanding it down and using wood filler to fill up some of the bigger gaps and cracks. Then, using wood glue I attached my figurine to the wood block and let dry overnight.
