Okay everybody, so this DIY is actually a product of my imagination. I got the inspiration when I saw a jewelry mold made out of hot glue. When hot glue hardens it becomes almost like a plastic material. I wanted to create something out of this material because it has so many possibilities and I think that’s awesome. Anyway, these place cards utilize hot glue and glitter and I think they turned out pretty cute. The ones I made are winter themed and sparkly, but I’m sure you DIY divas can think of all kinds of different designs. The way to think about this DIY is like painting with fabric paint or paint pens. If you can do those types of painting, you can do this. So without further ado, let’s get to gluing! … read more
When my fiancé and I got engaged, we received two separate cards from his mother alone, and between all of our assorted relatives, students, and supervisors, we found ourselves surrounded by quite the little collection of congratulatory stationary.
I didn’t want to throw them out or banish them to a scrapbook (at least not yet) but I didn’t want to keep knocking them over or accidentally dropping them on the floor either. The pretty flowers on the card I received from my college roommate, however, gave me an idea. Read on to see how you can give your engagement cards a permanent (and pretty!) home. … read more

There are so many festive wedding possibilities and fall weddings are so colorful! I just love the way the rich browns, deep reds, and bright yellows come together in fall wedding décor. Like I’ve said before, I like to think of new ways to utilize natural materials if I can. If you’re like me, you’ve been seeing acorns everywhere.
That’s why this idea was a no brainer. I’ve seen crafters do some pretty neat things with acorns and after all, they are fall’s (and squirrel’s) favorite accessory. What I thought might be fun and something I haven’t seen before, are acorn keychains. I thought this could work as a really cute and fall themed wedding favor. So I gathered up some acorns and experimented. The end results (I think) turned out great. Go outside and gather some acorns and we’ll get started. … read more
