Applique Tree Skirt Hack

Applique Tree Skirt HackRebecca here. The moment I laid my eyes on this Christmas tree skirt from Anthropologie, I started to make plans on how I was going to make a DIY version. It’s a maximalist’s dream! The colors, the sparkle, the textures–I was hooked. I spent the most time scouring the web for embroidered appliques and patches that would work well on the skirt. All of them were reasonably priced and available on amazon prime (score!). Once you have all your materials, the process of actually making the Applique Tree Skirt is fairly simple! Though you do need a sewing machine for the base of the skirt, I applied all the appliques with fabric glue: a much faster method than sewing. This is such a festive tree skirt and certainly heirloom quality. You can certainly customize the looks with your fabric choices and different applique selections, so have fun with it!

5 Tips to Creating the Perfect Christmas Card

Perfect Christmas Card

It’s that time of year again! No, I’m not talking about Halloween–It’s Christmas Card season! I’ve come to find that there are two camps: Those who LOVE Christmas Cards, and those who really don’t care. I happen to be a BIG fan of sending and receiving Christmas cards and grew up in a home where it an essential part of the seasonal traditions. I looked forward to opening up the envelopes and taping them up onto the door and seeing how people had changed over the years and what exciting news they had to share! So I’ve tried to keep up the tradition with my own family and also at work. I literally am jittery with excitement as I type this.Perfect Christmas Card

We teamed up with Chatbooks to create some lovely Christmas cards to send out to friends and clients! We posed in front of our new mural and wore items from our clothing collaboration with Winter Water Factory. The cards turned out so cute and I can’t wait to send them off! But I wanted to give you a few tips on how to create the Perfect Christmas Card, since I feel so passionately about the subject 🙂
