I’m baaaack!

27 Dec

I’m back in action! 

After taking a break for school, I am coming back full swing… or at least partial swing.
There will be new things & old things making a return.
I am very excited to be back!



Accessory appreciation!

16 Sep

I can’t tell you how much I enjoy accessories! They can jazz up any outfit, or add just enough of an eye catcher!
Hats are one of my favorite accessories, other than the obvious, jewelry.
I usually dont wear hats, because I feel like I can’t go an entire day wearing one, however I love how the right hat will pull your entire look together!

Here’s to you hats! And all you do for our messy less than perfect hair days, and our outfits that are starving for a perfect match.

My favorite DIYs!

A purpose for repurposing!

2 Sep

Using wall hangers is so old fashioned. (; So instead I gathered a few long sturdy branches from the forest behind my house to hang on my wall. I picked a few I thought would fit well and would carry the weight of all the things I wanted to put on it.
I stripped all the bark of of them and broke them down to the size I wanted. I looked for branches that had a bit of a curve and some personality. The extra branches that stick off of the main branch are very useful for hanging belts, scarves and even hats on.
If you go out scouring for your ‘new’ hanger please be sure you only take branches that have already fallen. Make sure you check them for rot before you remove them from the woods!

Test the brach to make sure it will hold all the weight you’d like it to. This branch I picked up can hold up to 11 jackets, 8 scarves, and 7 belts.
Note that all vary in strength. 
I used long hanger screws to hold the branch to the wall (one on each end), and used s shape hangers to hang the jacket hangers onto the branch.

This is such a statement piece in my room. I love it to death!

I found this old sliding window screen outside of my boyfriend’s house that was destined for the landfill and I scooped it up with an immediate attraction to it. I hung it on my wall with two push pins (one on each side). I then hung all of my earrings on the screen. I love this piece. I cleaned it but putting it in the bath tub and scrubbing it with a wire brush lightly while warm water was running on it. It was a free and fun earring hanger to find! (;

After going to an antique store I took home this vintage wooden crate for $14. I used it to put all of my acrylic paints in to organize them and have quick easy access to any color I need.

They all fit perfectly. Even the larger acrylic bottles fit!

Easy to carry around and easy to use! These crates are very fun to stack or hang on walls for shelves. I got a fairly shallow box, however there are crates that are deeper and work very well for putting things in! This particular crate has four dividers. Some have none, others have up to 50 small wooden dividers. They’re very fun and creative to use!

Feeling beachy!

Girls night in!

30 Aug

My friend Kara and I hung out on Sunday afternoon! We’ve been needing this much deserved hang out time for quite a while!
We went to the store to grab as much junk food as possible and then headed to my house to get our party on. (:

We baked a delectable chocolate two layered cake. The bottom layer filled with slices of cherries, then a middle layer of chocolate frosting, followed by a layer of chocolate cake and topped with chocolate frosting mixed with red food coloring to give it a rich look and strawberries sliced in half. So much fun! And so rich and sweet!

After demolishing our cake we decided to sit infront of Photo Booth for about an hour. (; haha!

Me and Kara on a roller coaster.

We like long walks on the beach.

Did it hurt when you fell from heaven? (;

We’re out of this world. (;

The faces of angels. (;

Such a wonderful night with Kara! love love love! 🙂

My first mural painting!

29 Aug

It’s in the beginning stages but I’m doing a mural piece for a company called Lloyd and Wilson Auto Services located in Tacoma Wa.

I’ve been bringing my car there for the past 5 years and at this point they’re more like family.

(i love my car.)
They always take care of you and give you a straight answer. They don’t have any other stores around, which makes this a mom and pop place.
I got a call one day from them asking if I could do a mural for them, they gave me some ideas and then sent me on my way to draw it up.
Here is the first day of my painting! I used acrylic. (:
