Is it finally acceptable to talk about Christmas? I’m not the light-up-Christmas-sweater-wearing type, but I do love the good energy that builds in this winter season as people get in the giving spirit. Related to that, I always seem to need gift labels. This was a fun way to repurpose old gift cards and make something functional all at once!
I actually did this Give-Away back at the beginning of July for my birthday, but I realized that I never wrote it up! I wanted to mix it up and do something a little different, so I was offering the chance to win a custom string art that the winner got to design!
This weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving, and in the spirit of it, I thought I would try some new autumn baking recipes! I’ve never worked with pumpkin before, but my friends assure me that it is a very yummy ingredient.
I tried to clean my room this summer, and in the process I found a lot of t-shirts that were too sentimental for me to donate, but too old to be worn. As a result, I decided to look into ways to repurpose them!
I was feeling quite nostalgic this week, so I thought I’d throw it back to something I used to do a lot in elementary school! My friends and I used to fold origami stars a lot, and when we got a little older, we realized that if we filled glass jars with them, they made for excellent gifts and decor!
This season, I’ve been noticing pom-poms popping up over the place! Initially, I was a bit hesitant about this trend since pom-poms feel very “little kid” to me, but I was won over in the end, mostly by how much fun pom-poms are to squish. It turns out that they’re incredibly easy to make as well!
The most inconvenient length of bangs for me has always been the in-between stage, where it’s too short to tuck behind your ears, but too long to leave natural. At this point, bobby pins are a necessity, but if you’re anything like me, you find these utilitarian items a bit boring. Here’s a fun and easy way to dress them up!
For me, October is a time when I am intensely grateful for family. My parents were married in October, and my family has two birthdays to celebrate as well. This give-away is inspired by them — without their constant support and very realistic advice, I probably couldn’t function as a human being.
A few weeks ago, I was volunteering at my church for a summer camp, and the theme was Submerged! All of the decorations were really cute, but my favourite by far were the jellyfish that hung from the ceilings! It turns out they were super simple to make as well, which made me fall in love with them even more.
