INKLING: Printable Back-to-School Labels

4Before you know it, it will be back-to-school time. And if you have little ones, you’ll want to label everything! I created this full sheet of small “This Belongs To” labels. They’re the perfect size for pencils, pens, sharpeners and even books.

ETCETERAS: Sea Glass Succulent Bowl

Sea Glass Succulent Bowl - homework (4)It wouldn’t be summer if I didn’t create some type of beachy coastal décor piece and this one is a quick and easy. The sea glass is from a floral arrangement I received years ago. The vase was filled with these beautiful glass chips and of course I washed and saved them.

Weekend Inspiration Summer color burst-001
TGIF everyone! We did again. We crafted, sewed, baked, decorated, diy’d  and inspired each other through another week. We’re right in the middle of summer so I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend. I’m hoping to tackle a bedroom bureau makeover that I’m excited about. We’ll see how much I get done. In the meantime, enjoy this burst of summer color that is totally inspiring me right now. What do you think about these Fiesta, Mediterranean, and bright and bold colors?

PRETTY PLEASE: Mod Podge Make Up Container

Green Tea Travel Toner by homeworkHappy Friday everyone. Yesterday I shared my homemade Green Tea Toner and today I want to show you how I made this cute travel container for the toner. I started with an empty loose powder container. I save them because they’re so perfect for holding small items and great for travel. Use them for your earrings and rings, medicine, or even a small amount of hair product.

PRETTY PLEASE: Homemade Green Tea Travel Toner

I’ve always had very oily skin which is a curse and a blessing. The natural oils do seem to help ward off wrinkles but I’m forever blotting my skin. For years I stopped using facial toner but as my skin ages, I find myself using it again. It seems to help combat the oiliness without drying my skin too much.
