Guide to Provo, Utah

Guide to Provo Utah

This post has been a long time in the making, folks. I’ve been wanting to do a feature on Provo, Utah, where I’ve now lived for three years, but as you know, it takes awhile to feel situated and like you’ve been able to experience a lot in your town. I’m a terrible social planner. But I know you’ve been on the edge of your seat waiting for it to come out, so so sit back, it’s time to explore everyone’s top bucket list location, Provo, Utah. AND, good news, while you’re traveling to get here, you can color it in with this handy dandy coloring page, free to download. Read on →

She shed craft retreat

This post is made possible by Pier 1. Thanks to the sponsors that allow us to make new and original content.a crafting she shed by The House That Lars Built for Pier 1

There are some crafts that I know I’d love to do as I watch TV or just take a breather so I was pumped when Pier 1 wanted to collaborate on a She Shed.

DIY daisy string lights

DIY paper daisy string light tutorial

You guys LOVED the DIY paper daisy backdrop and the DIY decorative string lights we did using Bright Lab lights. I haven’t been able to get either out of my head so we combined the two and created some daisy Bright Lab lights. I LOVE how they turned out! So simple yet bright and cheery. I love that you can turn them on for a party or as a night light in a child’s room.

It’s so simple to make, especially if you have a craft cutter machine, and we’re providing the PDFs and SVGs for you. It’s just two steps!
