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!

I realized this week I’ve been a bit obsessed with hot pink lately. And it all started with a llama magnet. My mother-in-law mentioned she had free magnets from Zazzle coming, and asked if I wanted to pick one out. I’m the type of person that ridiculously loves a million magnets and pictures and menus on the fridge, so I jumped at the idea. After about a half hour of breezing through their millions of options (no joke!), I stumbled across this hot pink llama and knew that was it. As I was looking through recent purchases and gifts, I realized there was a growing trend. “I think I love hot pink,” I whispered to myself, a bit surprised. But why not? It brings a bit of sunshine and whimsy… and now I’m all in.

My lovely sister and her amazing friends are all incredibly talented and super artsy folk. I feel so fortunate to be connected to such an awesome group and talented ladies. And I’m currently loving this super sweet set of beauty-themed mini paintings that Tess painted for me.

My darling husband turned me onto this artist a few weeks back and we can’t get enough of her work. He’s even looking into a possible tattoo of one of her lovely pieces! And while I was originally thinking her art would look fabulous gracing the walls of our living room, I must say I’m tempted by the thought of this ink on skin myself. Enjoy…
