Texture Tantrum: Hopping on the DIY Plaster Wall Art Trend

New year, new projects.  I took the last week of the year and a few days after the New Year to recharge as a creative. I dove into the things I have been saving on Pinterest and screen shot-ing and let me tell you it is exactly what I needed. Since November I feel like I have been working in hyper speed, it's truly a blessing to have orders to process and things to get done- no complaints, but my board of personal ideas was feeling pretty negelcted, had to show her some love.  At the beginning of 2020, I noticed a trend of painting ceramic pottery and glass vases with the half paint half baking soda trend and loved...

Sisal (Ob)Session

Gosh, I've been racking my brain around (is that how you say it, or is it wrapping my brain around....) - anyways, I've been trying to figure out if I should do four separate posts for these fun little D-I-Y projects I've done over the past few weeks because, well, stay at home order. OR if I should just cram them all into one.  Seeing as I, A) have not written/posted in quiiiiiite some time B) have not posted about a do it yourself project before and C) am sometimes not the best at explaining things, I thought, eh what the fly, I'll just do one post and see how it goes.  So - here it goes ;)    PROJECT #1  Simple...

What the Health: Tasty Chocolate Zucchini Bread

*Currently eating a hot fresh muffin I made for this post + damn are they DELICIOUS. . I loooove banana bread, like love it so much my Mom's would be gone before it ever cooled, love it. This recipe is similar to my Mom's, muuuuch healthier, nearly paleo (just swap the chocolate for dark) + has an added surprise, starts with a 'z' lol.  . I have made a few different recipes + have decided that this one is my favorite. I was always creeped out by the massive amount of eggs, but once I tried different recipes I soon realized I shouldn't question it, I should just eat it + that I do.  . Let me start off by saying I...

Staying In: Amazon Shopping Like a Boss

Wanna know my two favorite words; online shopping. Whether you’re grabbing a key fob here on our site or grabbing your favorite makeup nothing make us, or me, happier than getting that delivered email + rushing to the mailbox to get whatever it is your order, it's like Merry Everything, always.  . So for those of your like me, I decided to round up my latest obsessions on, where else, AMAZON. I live on Amazon; dog treats, slides, snacks, band tees, my man’s underwear, I mean I could go on, but it might get a little too personal, lol.  . All of these bad babes have been used on the daily since January + I think you need to start...
