DIY: Pumpkin Spice Lattes

I will not deny it, while I am able to resist the lure of Starbucks for most of the year, come Fall my resistance becomes futile and I go full-blown Borg. All Summer long, I look at those waiting in line for high dollar coffee and smugly walk on by. This only works until Starbucks rolls out their famous Fall drinks. Perhaps this year, armed with this recipe, I can resist!   In the next few weeks, Starbucks will bring back the rock star of latte, the queen of froth, the obsession of millions: The Pumpkin Spice Latte. But if you … Continue reading DIY: Pumpkin Spice Lattes

DIY Pillow Cover

DIY Pillow cover? Why not! I knew this project was for me as soon as I saw the words "DIY" and "Hardware store". Absolutely hands down, if I can get my supplies from the hardware store you can count me in! While I may not make hundreds of pillows, a couple are certainly do-able in a rainy day afternoon. A few of which I am hoping will be forthcoming!  Those canvas drop cloths you find at the hardware store for painting are PERFECT for creating neutral, casual pillows, and they are so darn cheap, you could afford to make hundreds of pillows … Continue reading DIY Pillow Cover

Diy Rice Bag with Heart Detail

Such a sweet little DIY rice bag and easy to make with supplies you probably have on hand. These make great paperweights, sachets, or even eye pillows if you make them a bit longer. They are endlessly customizable with fabric "stuffing" combinations for everyone! I've made a few with buckwheat and lavender before and they work wonders for aching wrists. For an extra special touch, use all organic components and gift them to someone you know who might have sensitivities to chemicals or pesticides. Even when the weather may be in the higher temps, these little rice bags are a comfort to those suffering from … Continue reading Diy Rice Bag with Heart Detail
