Homemade Syrup

If you follow my blog, youโ€™ll see that I took a little break. Work got really busy (thank goodness) and I kept forgetting to take time and craftโ€ฆ or take pictures and write about it. Luckily, I decided months ago that I was going to take my whole birthday weekend off since it aligns withContinue reading “Homemade Syrup”

Hanging Crystals

If you read my last post, youโ€™ll know Iโ€™m focusing a lot more on being intentional in my actions. And if you havenโ€™t, you should go check that out. Anywho, while Iโ€™m on this journey Iโ€™m trying anything I can to focus my energy where I want it to go. The other night, I wasContinue reading “Hanging Crystals”

Feng Shui Me

Lately Iโ€™ve been doing everything I can to change the energy around me. Iโ€™ve been purposeful about who I talk to and when, making sure I take breaks from work and clients, and overall just trying to be more intentional about my actions. The last couple of weeks, Iโ€™ve hit a rut. My energy isContinue reading “Feng Shui Me”

Birthday Celebrations!

When my boyfriend and I first started talking, he told me he has never had anyone make a big deal about his birthday. He is used to planning everything himself and hasnโ€™t ever been pamperedโ€ฆ so my goal this year is to change that. I picked 7 gifts that I knew he would like (5Continue reading “Birthday Celebrations!”

Homemade Butter

On July 4th I had a few friends over for a fire that turned into a game night. Iโ€™m not sure how we got on the topic, but I said something about making butter and realized that not everyone has made butter before! Iโ€™m not sure if I did it first in scouts or atContinue reading “Homemade Butter”

DIY Veggie Broth

Non-billable Hours

I was thinking long and hard about what I would post this week. I knew it would be really full with clients. On a normal week, I try to see clients 3-4 days out of the week. It doesnโ€™t seem like a lot, especially based off of a normal work day โ€“ but it is.Continue reading “Non-billable Hours”

Tub Tray

If you read Tuesdayโ€™s post, youโ€™ll know that most of my past two weekends were taken up with tearing apart and putting down a new deck. I was expecting to take a break from crafting and catch up on sleep and reading around work this weekโ€ฆ but Jarod had different ideas. On Monday, we bothContinue reading “Tub Tray”

New Deck!!

WOW do I have a big project for you! I was meaning to do a lot more small crafts over the last couple of weeks but I got a little distracted. Between the weather and schedules lining up, Jarod and I decided to start a project that weโ€™ve been wanting to do for a while:Continue reading “New Deck!!”

Partner Patches

Iโ€™m SO excited for this weekโ€™s project. My friend Abbie helped me come up with the idea. We were out shopping at Lowes and saw a couple of guys wearing green cargo pants and polo shirts that had badges on them. I joked about the uniform being attractive and wanting to find a reason toContinue reading “Partner Patches”
