Make Washi Tape Beads!

If you are looking for a bead project for the kids this summer, you're in the right place. This is a simple project that is so easy, even grown-ups can do it! All of your supplies can be found at the dollar store, as well. Bonus!

Gather up your odd bits of washi tape, lace tape, and ribbon tape and spend the afternoon making pretty jewelry with the kiddos.

The Beach House Studio Reveal

Are you ready for the 2015 House Revivals craft room reveal? Okay, maybe not "the big reveal", but the "this is where we are now, and where we'll probably stay until my schedule frees up in, ohhhhhh, I don't know, January 2016 maybe?"

At the beginning of the year, this attic was a big overwhelming mess.

Mini Composition Book Travel Journal

With summer just around the corner, many of us are planning to get out more and take some trips. This is a perfect time to "get your feet wet" with art journaling.

I remember, as a little girl on road trips, my mother would give the kids notebooks and tell us to write and draw about what we were seeing.

A Beautiful Mess

As we head into summer, we are gearing up for lots of guests at our beach house. Entertaining can be pretty stressful, and I think we all pressure ourselves to "be the hostess with the mostest".

We plan elaborate parties, with fancy decorations, and worry about whether all our guests will be impressed. During our parties, we're constantly tidying up, checking on toilet paper, putting out dry towels, and making sure there is plenty of ice.

Craft Storage From Altered Tins

I love a good upcycling project, and these upcycled Altoids tins are no exception.

I have some lovely sets of Melody Ross debossing tools, but while the alphabets and numbers came in beautiful tins, some of the smaller sets came in blister packs.
