It has been an exciting whirlwind of a week for Jodie and me! We attended the Alt Summit in Palm Springs, and if you were following our adventures on Instagram you had a peek at some of the fun. What an amazing group of inspiring women! It was totally exhilarating interacting with roughly 650 fabulous creatives and entrepreneurs. One of the most inspiring aspects was the diversity. It was so great to see a full spectrum of races and ages represented. Our hearts are full, our minds are energized, and we are ready to dive into ALL THE THINGS!!

How to Create a Gallery Wall

This week our favorite came from Kim at Today’s Creative Life. Her post, How to Hang a Picture – The Easy Way  shares step-by-step instructions for creating the perfect gallery wall.  We loved learning the coolest technique to easily hang a picture.

We are so excited about Jodie’s DIY fireplace transformation.  It looks like Jodie got all new tile.  In fact she painted her old plain tile using a stencil for a very inexpensive and fabulous new look. Of all her DIY projects this one is her favorite to date. Read here to find out how you can use her techniques on any flat surface including floors!

Janine’s Feature

This week, I would like to share with you Sarah’s renovated home. Her project is quite remarkable. I’m sure you’ll enjoy reading her story about her huge house redesign!



This fun paper garland DIY is not to be missed. You'll want to make both the leaf and rosettes garlands that you can hang anywhere in your home. Instant beauty wherever you place them. #craft #papercraft #paperflowers #garland #papergarland #weddingdecor #wedding

I’m super pleased how my two paper garlands turned out. Don’t you think they just add the perfect touch of a secret garden above my bed?
