7 Last-Minute DIY Gifts!

So...It's that time of year. Again. And, if you're anything like me, you've saved your Christmas shopping until the last minute. In order to avoid the feverish search on Amazon Prime for a gift that will get here before the 25th, join me and my fellow crafters and embark on a journey of selflessness and serenity where one's presence is a present within itself. Just kidding. Join me and my fellow
pro-craft-inators (get it?) and make some pretty darn cool last minute gifts.

#1 Origami Business Cards
Perfect for the little entreprenaur in your life.

#2 Minimalist Necklace
For the fashionista.

#3 Homemade Cookie Butter
For the Nutella-obsessed.

#4 Tissue Paper Mug
For the coffee/tea addict.


#5 An Adorable Cushion
For the twee friend.


#6 Glitter Candle Holders
For the Urban Outfitters-esque friend.

#7 Little Plant Houses
For the friend with the green thumb.

Hope your holiday isn't too stressful. I know in the past I've had many a midnight crafting sesh on Christmas Eve with my sister in our attic, but hopefully you'll spare yourselves the trouble. It's time to get down to business, people! Happy holidays, now go get crafting!

Ready, set, go!

My Life Lately

Has it been a while? It feels like it's been a while. School has been pretty crazy lately, especially with midterms coming up! So here's just a little glimpse of what's new with me recently.






Antiquing finds! A pair of 70s earrings, a flower headband from a street vendor, an embroidered pendant, a flower postcard, one tin of Queen Elizabeth, and a vintage postage stamp.


Whale watching! Traveled to the Cape and got sufficiently seasick, but got to see one of the most beautiful creatures on Earth.

Fun things spotted in the city

Did someone say ice cream????? Creepy ice cream man on the back of the ice cream truck.

DC traveling time - went to see an amazing concert.

Just your average Plant Shopping Saturday.

And of course I had to include some England nostalgia. I miss it too much. This was the view from our hotel in Notting Hill!

Hope your week is fabulous. To those studying, best of luck!
