Something about January makes me feel all crafty (and I am never crafty!). I’ve been looking into something to add a little more life to our walls. Here’s a few amazing project ideas I stumbled across. Click through each of the photos for tutorials!

Isn’t that gold moon just stunning? I can’t get over it! Hopefully once I tackle the January Cure, I can start getting creative!

Hope your weekend has been restful! Here’s a little link love for a lazy Sunday:

The sweetest striped shoes.
A simple and savory soup for a cold night.
The ultimate Alice in Wonderland wedding.
On the declining use of the phone call. I’m guilty.
Trying to get organized in 2014 with The January Cure.
DIY sweet and scripted pillow cases.
Obsessing over these booties a bit.
I’ve a serious soft spot for cannoli and these look unbelievable.

Have a new calendar yet? Here’s a sweet illustrated one for 2014.

One of my favorite current wedding trends is the photobooth. We rented one for our wedding (the most amazing team 321foto!), but I love the look of these sweet homemade ones too! Such a great way to create additional keepsakes for you and all your guests, perfectly personalized. I love seeing the pictures from our wedding photobooth pop up again and again in my feeds. Such fun and fabulous memories!

As simple as hanging up a gorgeous piece of fabric, a bit of cut out cardboard, a wall of sequins, an empty frame, or, if you know someone really talented, this gorgeous chalkboard backdrop.


Here’s a little taste of our wedding booth hilarity.

Started the morning off with a little hot yoga and I’m feeling rather refreshed. Then a fabulous lunch with a few favorite friends at Skillet, including the best poutine I’ve had outside of Canada. Yum! Hope your weekend is wonderful!

happy weekend

We put off home buying to have a little fun this year and to pay down our debt a bit more. While I’m desperate for more space, a co-worker suggested renting in the neighborhood we’re thinking about buying in first. I think it’s brilliant! Our lease isn’t up for a while, but we’ve started looking. The one thing I’d love this time around is a true dining room. Two years back when we moved into our current apartment, we didn’t see ourselves entertaining much. Particularly during the holiday season, I’d love the chance and the space to host a dinner party!  And I have the new year’s on my mind…
