Doesn’t this display of chinoiserie vases and blue hydrangeas stop you in your tracks? Not only are they beautiful, but they are a DIY project from the Dollar Store! You know how much I love using napkins in crafting, like I did with this vintage tool box succulent display and this vintage wreath makeover. If you haven’t tried to decoupage with napkins yet, and you enjoy crafting, this is one to try.

My Secret Crafty Crushes

This sweet little heart-shaped leopard rug is so bright and colorful. And, you can download the free embroidery pattern to make your own! I could totally see this in a dorm room, or teens bedroom. Wouldn’t it even be fun in a bathroom for a quirky touch? Have you ever tried punch needle embroidery?

Pretty soon flowers will be blooming everywhere! Have you ever tried to dry your own roses? It can be a little tricky, but this tutorial shows you how to dry them with silica crystals. You can dry them at their peak so they look beautiful all year long. There are so many ways to decorate with dried flowers too. You can add a couple to a DIY wood reed diffuser like I show HERE.

Foodie Crush of the Week

With summer around the corner and kids finishing up school soon, get ready for lots of requests for summer treats. These ice cream cookie sandwiches are quick and easy. Plus, you can use store bought cookies for a semi-homemade time saver. Another quick cookie treat are my 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies. You can’t get much easier than 3 ingredients!
