pretty holiday projects

November 21, 2011

pretty holiday projects every year i try to make the majority of my christmas gifts. there are really two reasons for this; the first is that i love to make things. i love everything about the process, from picking out a project-to-pouring myself into it-to-getting anxious about seeing the recipient open it. it’s just all good. the second reason is that it saves us money. christmas on a budget is tough, and when you can get crafty it can save you tons. i’ve been cataloging my favorite project ideas over on pinterest, and here are a few of my favorites. i still need more ideas though! do you have any crafty gift plans?

1. pretty poufs (discovered via itty bitty impact)
2. braided leather belt
3. drawstring bag (discovered via indie pretty projects)
4. tub teas (perfect for making your own tea)
5. handmade envelope tutorial
6. reversible journal covers

hello friends! as the last day of the august break, i thought i would break my silence a little early! i just want to express my gratitude to you for allowing me to partake in the break and share the month with you through my camera lens. i hope you all had fun seeing more of my ‘real life’ as i think it created a more personal space here. it also allowed me a little rejuvenation time and opportunity to be deeply inspired. i value each and every one of you and always look forward to waking up and chatting with you, and for that i am grateful. please stay tuned for september, as i have several exciting things to share (the first one starts tomorrow!). love and light to each you!

how has your august been? did you partake in the august break?

our 5 dollar headboard

diy crate headboard

sneak peek of our bedroom! we made the headboard from scraps behind our local market (following these directions), so we only had to purchase a few hangers. with strung lights behind it, i like the rustic-chic feel it gives.
