Make a Tulip Wreath | spring floral ideas #michaelsmakers One of my favorite ways to welcome each season is with a new wreath on the front door. A wreath is such a simple addition that instantly brings a fresh perspective to the front of any home, without much effort. It's one of the first things your guests see and an easy way to speak volumes and express your style, without even saying a word. As we begin to refresh our homes for the upcoming season, Michaels challenged the Michaels Makers team to incorporate some beautiful spring Continue reading

I know it's been over two weeks - however, this year I passed the decorating off to the kids and let them take over our Easter Tablescape. My six year old niece, Brianna, came up with many of the ideas and I was so thrilled with her design work, I just had to share. I really enjoyed keeping it low key and casual this time around - as typically I am running around the week of trying to find the right fabric to make a custom runner and napkins - so it Continue reading

I’ve Got My Eye On… Ceramic Egg Crates

My mom and I were making our family dinner plans for Easter the other day and suddenly realized this year is an early year for Easter - March 31st - just a little more than a month away.
