Has anyone else been daydreaming over resort collections? Maybe anxiously anticipating the release of spring collections? Guilty. Loeffler Randal, in particular, has caught my fancy with their overload of ricrac and rainbows! They are speaking our language! So we’re taking a page from their book with this DIY Rainbow Ricrac Clutch! But that’s not all: this clutch is made from a placemat. Yep, a placemat. In other words, not only will this clutch brighten up your wardrobe, it will cost you less than $10! We’re sold. Every day is worthy of a rainbow so go ahead and make this Rainbow Ricrac Placemat Clutch and daydream of warmer days ahead!
Summer is here, which means you’re heading to the beach, the pool, the farmer’s market! Jetting off on summer vacations left and right! If only life could always be summer, right? Anyways, with all the fun excursions I know you’ll be taking, you’ll need a cute tote to carry your sunglasses, sunscreen, and summer reading materials. Woven tote bags scream summer and we fell in love with this circular design by Loom & Field, whose store is chalk-full of beautiful things! We decided to give it a Lars touch so we painted on a rainbow, of course as inspired by this one from Vanessa Seward. This DIY painted woven tote will become your go-to bag for the summer. Bonus points if you buy the matching shoes and earrings because there is no such thing as too much rainbow!
The sun is starting to shine and it’s making me wonder why I even tolerate winter. And then I remember my obsession with tights… Nevertheless, this California-bred girl loves the warm weather! I’ve never quite jumped on the tanning bandwagon, perhaps due to disappointment with sunless tanning lotions. Or maybe it’s because of an abundance of adorable swimsuit coverups and sunhats. It’s hard to find the perfect hat for the summer, so we took matters into our own hands and made our own! The power of craft! This DIY Painted Rainbow Sun hat is a perfect balance. It’s a classic rattan, wide-brim hat, and did we mention it’s from Ikea? But underneath, there’s a peekaboo rainbow! Surprise surprise! It’s super simple and we can assure you you’ll get plenty of compliments. Hat’s off to you!

If you’re a crafter (or you live with one…) you probably have paintbrushes, pencils, rulers, markers, and pens scattered all over your workspace. This might make you (or the person you live with…) a bit crazy. As much as you want to put them away, these are tools that you need at the ready! So you can’t just simply put them away! Okay, so maybe this is my self-conscious trying to justify my untidy tendencies. I’m hoping I’m not alone in these feelings. But because I’m more right-brained, the art of organization is just not my strong suit! Yet I’ve come to realize that it’s a necessity in order to run a successful business. Consequently, there has been a large increase in storage boxes, bins, and baskets at the studio. Yet, I still needed a convenient place for my everyday tools. Insert: the Paper Mâché Rainbow Vase! It is the perfect solution for storing craft tools, while still passing as a unique art piece. I have crafted a rainbow to hold my craft supplies so I can craft more rainbows. Now if that isn’t genius I don’t know what is 😉
We’re big fans of ceramics artist, Lisa Junius, and came across her rainbow vase, which was no longer available for purchase. Being the paper lovers that we are, we had to try out a paper version so we could get our rainbow fix on this month. We love using ours as a pencil holder.
