Farmer’s Market tote with Infusible Ink

DIY paper peony

If you’ve been following along on Instastories, you’ve seen the updates I’ve been giving about my garden peonies. They are blooming slowly and not quite in peak season quite yet so we took matters into our own hands and made this gorgeous DIY paper peony bouquet. You can make just one on its own or many for a full bouquet. Think bridal bouquet or bridesmaid. How beautiful would it be?!

3 DIY Derby Hats with Fiskars

It was this time six years ago that I got my 15 minutes (actually, it was only like 3 minutes, I’m still waiting on the remainder) of fame. I had submitted a paper flower hat design to The Today Show for a Kentucky Derby hat contest. I, along with two other finalists, were brought on to the show to show off our hats and what do you know, June Ambrose and Al Roker named me the winner. Ha! It was all very hilarious. You can see the full video here for proof.

As you saw in the video, I won a HUGE trophy (where to put that in your house? Please advise???) and I’ve been staring at it for 6 years. Derby hats are clearly ALWAYS on my brain. When Fiskars asked us to use their new DIY heavy duty scissors as well as their classic orange-handled scissors, I knew exactly what to do with them. In fact, we made three versions so you have some options. And they’re all made from materials that you probably already have in your house.

Let’s get cracking!

Copenhagen city guide

I’ve been wanting to share my favorite Copenhagen tips for years now and I don’t know how it’s taken 9 years to do so. Wait, yes, I do! Consider it one of those “never a tourist in your own city” moments, meaning, I experienced it all, just never wrote it all down in one concise list. Well, thanks for your patience! I’ve received numerous emails over the years asking for my recommendations and I’ve given them out, but I always thought that I needed an extra “oomph” to get it out into the world. That extra oomph was our recent trip to Denmark visiting family and revisiting some of my favorite haunts. Guess what? They still hold up! And they’re amazing.

If you’re planning a trip to Denmark, here’s what you MUST do:

DIY Shamrock scrunchie

How to wear green on St Patrick’s dayEvery time I hear the word “scrunchie” I 1) cringe 2) hearken back to my oversized sweatshirts and bunches up socks 3) repeat “my lucky srunchie. It helped me pass Spanish.” (Name that movie). So today, now that scrunchies have some way made their way back into our vocabulary, we are making a lucky scrunchie with this DIY shamrock scrunchie, just in time for St. Patrick’s day.
