I've recently been going through my grandma's old jewelry with my sister, and we've been taking the pieces we want (which is basically everything), so I have a lot of new posts and DIYs coming your way soon! :) Can't wait.

Hunger Games

I am currently sitting in the movie theatre with my best friend, Megan waiting for the premier of The Hunger Games. I read these books a few months back, an immediately fell in love. I read them right after a break-up with my long term boyfriend of three and a half years. I have always been in love with books, reading, and the power of words, and these words came at a perfect time.Seeing this movie is a special moment because I'm in such a good place right now and I'm so happy. I'm thankful to have all the wonderful people I have in my life. I hope everyone can feel just as lucky. :)
P.S. I'll let you know how the movie is!

D.I.Y. Customized Message Cork Board

I saw this idea as a magnet board. I made my own version with a cork board for a gift for my best friend. The cork board is a lot cheaper to make.
You Will Need: 

  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Sharpies
  • One piece of scrapbook paper
  • Multiple sized wooden circles (These can be found in any craft store. Any shape works. I thought taking square ones and making them look like scrabble pieces would be cute too.)
  • Round topped push pins.
  • Cork squares

  1.  First, write out your message on the shapes one letter per shape. I used song lyrics my friend has as a tattoo. (You're the only voice my heart can recognize.)

2. Hot glue push pins to the back of each lettered shape.

3. Take your paper, and measure according to the squares. Then put dabs of hot glue on the corners to make sure the paper stays secure. The push pins will already help it stay on, the hot glue is just for extra reinforcement.

4. Finally, Glue a ribbon to the back to combine multiple cork boards and make a pretty bow at the top with a loop for easy wall hanging. Push all the pins in, and ta-da!

I hope you have fun!
