Minimalistic Flower Bucket D.I.Y.

My biggest obsession 90% of the time is how soon I can go to Goodwill, what I can buy from Goodwill, maybe I could get that at Goodwill. Not only does thrift shopping same your exorbitant amounts of money, it always helps you find some cool treasures that you never expected to find or find unique items that you can D.I.Y. into something else. Today’s post is the latter.  I found the most ridiculous (and heinous) snowman themed Christmas bucket a few months back (in March) and brought it home. Needless to say, A was a little confused at why…

D.I.Y. Travel Fund Jar with Custom Stickers from Sticker App

I remember when I was a kid and I could not wait to be an adult because it meant being able to buy whatever I wanted and eating ice cream for breakfast. Then I became an adult and I realized that it really means tax returns, loan applications, escrow and other awful things, which is significantly less fun. The main thing that upsets me about not having the funds we want, is that we don’t get to travel nearly as much as we want to, but we are trying to change that and make it a top priority starting with…

D.I.Y. Goat Cocktail Stirrers

As many of you may have guessed at this point, A really loves beer and I really love wine. We complete each other *cue awwws*. Point is that the man enjoys a good brew and he went on a long kick where all he drank was this brand of beer called Ayinger Celebrator Doppelbock which is not only a fantastic hearty beer (if you like beer…I am trusting A’s opinion here…I think all beer is yucky) it also comes with a tiny plastic goat on each bottle. Too adorable right? Of course being me, I didn’t want to throw any of…

D.I.Y. Easy Potted Succulent Update

When I quit my job two weeks ago, my co-worker Kate threw me a really sweet good-bye spread complete with oreos, veggie fries, fruit…basically all my favorite things PLUS she got me the sweetest little succulent you have ever seen! It immediately found a happy little home on my desk in my home office, but I am the type of person who always wants everything to be unique to me, so I decided that I could spice up the pot a little bit to make it more fun for my desk. Initially I was just going to paint the pot…

D.I.Y. Yarn Back Chair Update

  The other day I was shopping through Goodwill on the hunt to find the perfect desk chair. I had envisioned something modern, comfortable, with wheels preferably. As we all know though, Goodwill leads to some creative finds that are not always what you have been looking for. This dinky little chair caught my eye because it was so clearly something that someone had handmade and put a lot of effort into – despite it’s slight wobble and unevenly sanded surfaces. I decided it was worth the $3 investment and that I could find my own way to make it even…
