DIY :: Wood Pennant Banner

While I could find reasons to argue each season as my favorite, I have a real soft spot for summer. I love the imagery of summertime: crystal clear swimming holes in the heat of the day, watermelon out on the back porch and cracking open a few cold beers on a warm summer evening with… read more


Crafting with Canon :: Tiny Travel Album in a Box

I have fond memories of visiting my next door neighbor’s house as a child — they spent the first two years of their marriage traveling the world together before settling down in our small town. I loved pouring over the artsy albums commemorating their trips that they kept on the living room coffee table. In… read more


DIY :: Pressed Flower Gift Wrap

If you caught last week’s round-up of our favorite Mother’s Day presents, you may have a plan for what to give your mom this year… but have you given any thought to how you’ll be wrapping it? After all, gift wrapping is a great way to express creativity and put that extra special touch on… read more


Little Things :: Making Maracas

Springtime in Austin always means sitting outside listening to live music. SXSW comes and goes like a whirlwind, but really, this city is always about those things and in the Spring we just get to enjoy them more often. In the spirit of our musical town and the upcoming Cinco de Mayo festivities, I thought… read more


DIY :: Egg-Holder Place Cards

We’re big proponents of the place card — not only does it save your guests a game of musical chairs, but something about it is the perfect cherry-on-top to any place setting design. Above all, I love when a place card is both functional and decorative (remember these?)… and since Easter is all about setting… read more


Transformed :: Concrete + Copper Plant Stand

Happy Thursday! Claire here with the perfect summer kick-off DIY. I don’t know about you all, but I am a plant lover. I have them scattered on my porch, decorating my shelves and still can’t help but keep buying more! What is better than displaying them on a plant stand you made yourself? Better yet,… read more


DIY :: Embroidered Felt Easter Eggs

Easter egg crafts hold a special place in my heart, right up there with Valentine’s Day card making. They’re low-pressure, great for kids, and best of all, they just scream spring! I’ve always loved the rustic and homemade look of felt balls, so for this project we used wool roving to make egg-shaped delights rather than the… read more


Transformed :: Mirror Goes Gold

Happy Thursday! Claire here and if you are familiar with my transformed projects you know I think everything looks better with a little gold. Decor at Camille’s office is no exception! Things over at the new office space are moving along wonderfully, and we can’t wait to show you the finished product, but first I… read more


DIY :: Woody Valentines

Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be complete without printed, cut, folded and glued paper Valentines passed out to friends and family (like the lovely floral printables Jenn created this year), but I’m always intrigued by V-Day crafts that are made with less predictable materials. This DIY was inspired by… well, a tree branch. And while it boasts… read more


DIY :: Tin Can Valentine’s Votive

If you caught yesterday’s 10 Best DIY Valentines, you may already have your February 14th crafting game plan all mapped out… but Valentine’s Day DIYs don’t have to be limited to small tokens of affection for your loved ones. For this project, I used a small, tarnished paint can to make a votive that’s perfect for adorning the… read more
