Chip and Joanna Gaines are at it again. Yesterday Target Stores officially opened their new Hearth & Hand Magnolia “store within a store”. I won’t mention who, but someone I know has been peeking inside the plastic surrounding the “store” they have been building at our local target store. I have been really excited to see the final “store within the store” so today I was at Target shortly after it opened.
Pinterest is such a great place for DIY ideas. Especially when it comes to Christmas projects. I recently saw this paper Magnolia wreath that was made by Seeking Lavender Lane. I loved the look of it so I decided to make my own using a scrapbook paper instead. It’s an easy DIY and I think you should try it!
When I teach my painting workshops, each of my students gets an apron embroidered with their name on it. I used to spend $12 on each apron to have them embroidered. Since I taught 12 – 14 workshops a year, I finally figured out that it would be much cheaper if I embroidered them myself.
There is a very interesting room in our house that is located off of our family room and living room. It has been known as my office for the last 17 years and it was in great need of a makeover. Why? Because it’s really dark and kind of claustrophobic. (And to be totally honest, it is NEVER this clean.)
There was a time when all of my recipes came from my recipe box or my huge collection of cookbooks. Nowadays, I seem to find my inspiration online from Pinterest and the very enticing Tasty videos. When it comes time to cooking one of these recipes, I usually print the recipe and then leave it on my island … only to find it ruined with remnants of my cooking exploration! (This can’t just be me…)
