DIY It - Colorful Typography Soap

As I have been going over last year's craft and DIY projects, I saw a theme in some of my most popular projects. You guys really like soap, succulents, sewing, and pom pom projects! So I am going to try this year to bring you more of what you love and first up are these fun, colorful typography soaps!




These may look super complicated, but with the magic that is melt and pour soap, they just require a few minimal tools you likely already have in your kitchen.

10 Conversation Heart DIY's for Valentine's Day

It has been a non stop onslaught of rain and dark, gloomy skies here in Austin the last week and between that and my camera breaking, I don't have much to share in the way of new DIY's (but I do have quite a few made and ready to shoot as soon as the weather clears up and I get my camera back). So in the meantime, I figured a good old round up of some of the best conversation heart DIY's was in order. And let's just be honest, I would much rather craft and look at conversation hearts than actually eat them!

10 fun, colorful, and creative conversation heart DIY projects for Valentine's day!

DIY It - Faux Wood Grain and Succulent LOVE sign

If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen me mention a few times how I spent the first two weeks of this month styling and photographing 4 different themed weddings for a client of mine. Along with the styling of these weddings came a few DIY projects, and this faux wood grain and succulent LOVE sign was one of them. Luckily I took a few pictures of the process of making it so that I could share the DIY with you.



Now, I know that you might be thinking that this DIY is outside of my normal style of color, but I love the delicate flowers and succulents mixed with the wood grain. And you may not know that although I am drawn to bright bold colors first, I also love boho style, mcm style, and industrial design. I sort of like all the design styles, and I think this LOVE sign is just perfect for a Valentine's Day mantel (or even a wedding).

Craft It - Colorful Macaron Gift Boxes

You guys! I am SO EXCITED about this project! As I was brainstorming Valentine's Day ideas, I had the idea to create little macaron shaped gift boxes. It was like one of those light bulb moments where you have an idea, know exactly how you want to make it, and wonder why you never thought of it before. But I am happy to say that this project is as easy as it is cute and you might (just MIGHT) get addicted to making them in every color and size even if you have no one to give them all to. Or maybe that's just me!

Can you even?! The cuteness of these boxes is almost too much to handle. Who wouldn't want to get a gift in one of these?!
