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


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


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

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

With Christmas in… read more


Little Things :: Including Them

For me, one of the most precious sounds is hearing my little people hone in on what they’re thankful for — really digging deep into that place where they realize that they have lots to be grateful for, even in their most “dire” of circumstances (like, not getting to have three cookies after dinner, or… read more

The Thanksgiving Table :: House of Earnest

This time last year, we kicked off the holiday season by asking our favorite floral designers to create a gorgeous arrangement to take center-stage on their Thanksgiving table. This year, we’re reigniting the series with a twist: we reached out to the craftiest of crafters to create a Thanksgiving tabletop DIY project to share with us…… read more


Come & Craft with Us!

We’re so excited to be resuming our holiday craft night with Anthropologie this season! Last year’s Austin event was such a blast (remember those evergreen monograms?) and this year, the team and I have cooked up a creative way to make your gift wrapping loads more fun and eco-friendly, too. These little boxes are so chic,… read more
