Craft the Rainbow blog tour

The day has come! Craft the Rainbow is officially out in bookstores and online book sellers across the world! Ye haw!

I’ve been incessantly shouting it from the rooftops and I’m sure you’re probably thinking, “Brittany, tone it down, we got it”, but, you see folks, we’re just getting started with the colorful celebrations. We didn’t work our rainbow-craftin’ heinies off for nothing! So I’m going to send it out into the universe: I’d love to see it on tons of best-seller lists! There, I said it. If we’re honest, I’ve never actually seen a craft book on any best-selling list in general book categories, but why not start now, huh?! Could it happen? I don’t know! But I’d love to find out We are currently the #1 best-seller on Amazon’s Paper Craft list so I guess we’re off to a good start.

We’re kicking off the release with a 10 day online blog tour with some of our favorite friends from around the web. They’ll be sharing some tutorial features, remakes of craft projects from the book, sneak peeks of the book, and other exclusive content. Hop on over to see what they are all up to!

Nesting with Nest + Crepe Paper Lemon Wreath

Crepe Paper Lemon Wreath

Ever since having Baby J, life has gotten a bit more complicated. Juggling normal life, running a business, and taking care of a newborn baby is no joke. How do you all do it?! I’ve learned that it takes a village and there is no shame in asking for help and using resources available to you. One such resource that I’ve fallen in love with? Nest! Have you heard of it? It combines the familiarity of a doorbell with an HD security camera. Genius! Between packages being delivered, visitors to see Jasper, and everything in between, we get a lot of traffic at our front door. I love the convenience of being able to see who’s here, and even speak to them through a microphone without moving an inch! This comes in very handy when Jasper is eating or just being particularly adorable.

Basically, I’m nesting with Nest! Since we were upgrading our doorbell in a major way, I decided it was high time to update our wreath as well. This Crepe Paper Lemon Wreath is the perfect way to welcome in spring!

DIY Crib Skirt and Mattress Giveaway

DIY Crib Skirt

As one might expect at this point, I’m still getting the hang of this whole “Mom” thing. Every day is a learning day and it’s quite the wild ride! After doing my fair share of baby book reading, I’m constantly paranoid that Baby J might suffocate in his crib, stop breathing, or insert any other fear that gets ingrained in a new mother’s brain. DHP (remember their rad futon and bedding?!)  approached me about their Safety 1st Heavenly Dreams Crib and Toddler Mattress I couldn’t have been happier! This mattress is perfect for a worrying mama: Hypoallergenic, Thermo-bonded core so the babe gets plenty of support and water-resistant outer cover for easy clean-ups! What more could you want?! DIY Crib Skirt

This mattress really is top of the line and it won the 2017 Women’s Choice Award as Amerca’s Most Recommended Brand for Crib & Toddler Mattress. Since I am now determined to get Jasper sleeping in his crib with his new mattress I decided to go all in and complete the look with a DIY Crib Skirt. I wanted a traditional gathered look and had Becca, our resident seamstress, whip one up. And since baby mattresses are pretty standard (at least in North America), you can easily make one yourself with these same dimensions. It’s simple enough for a novice sewer.

Find out how to win a Safety 1st Mattress of your own and sew your own DIY Crib Skirt! Read on →

April Showers bring May flowers… so I guess you can say we’re jumping the gun a little bit over here! This Rainbow Paper Flower Tablescape is the perfect way to welcome in Spring! It also involves two of our favorite things: rainbows and flowers. We created layered 2-D paper flowers in different shades of pink, orange, yellow, blue, and purple to create a rainbow of flowers down the center of the table. Paper, wire, and floral foam and then only materials you need to make this stunner. It would be perfect for a Mother’s Day brunch, a spring bridal or baby shower, or a rainbow themed birthday party!Rainbow Paper Flower Tablescape
