More beautiful prints from Real Fun Wow — Foliage edition! I love the feel of these vintage, bold, expressive foliage prints and I think they would look stunning in a gallery wall with other artwork. Click on the image to go to it’s shop page!
I have recently found this artist and I have found a love for his style. His work has a sort of spiritual feel to them and I love the subtle religious messages in them. I have gone through all of his prints and chose my favorites. Which numbers to multiple dozens! So I’ve split them up into series. This series is the quotes prints. It was hard for me to only choose 9 (here is 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 others I like) but these were the messages I liked the most! Which do you like the best?
1 | I can’t get enough of Briony’s floral mosaics! The colors and her ability to cut ceramic tiles into shapes to create these flowers is awe-inspiring. It’s getting me all excited to give it a go somewhere in our future home garden!
2 | I’ve been on a sewing streak lately and this puff quilt is something I want to try next. I can only assume it is major cuddly.
3 | The way this plant perfectly scoured into the fabric makes me want to take every plant and flower I see and pound it into any scrap fabric I can find. I haven’t bought her workshops on homemade dye but you can best be sure I will someday soon!
4 | I’ve wanted to play with resin and flowers for a while and seeing these adorable earrings gets me antsy to get my hands on some resin asap!
5 | Gosh this account of stained glass makes me so so happy. The color choices are just on point! I’ve got a design idea already prepped and ready to give it a go when I get the chance.
6 | I just love the bold black illustrations that this artist does, in addition to all the other things she paints as well.
7 | Another account I always love seeing new posts on. Her gathered natural items and the way they are organized makes me want to treasure-hunt every time I am outside!
8 | Speaking of gathered items, this account has tons of ideas on nature kid crafts and I want to try all the things!
9 | This artist has the most beautiful style that has an Impressionism feel but is very realistic as well. Makes me want to give oil painting a go again!
I love trying to incorporate kids into Mother’s Day gifts and gathered a couple of my favorite ideas for you to try this Mother’s Day!
1 | Let your kids draw on some wooden spoons. Later, take a wood etching tool and burn it in. Grandma will love seeing the hearts and love burned in while she cooks. Personalize a cutting board from the whole family instead!
2 | Take any recent photos of your kids with their Grandma and order a Chatbooks or Pinhole Press! You know Grandmas love any and all gifts that incorporate photos of their grandkids.
3 | This idea comes from a friend who took photos of her kids, printed and cut out, then laminated and poked holes to create the cutest little unique bookmark for Grandma! I love this one so much.
4 | Go on a nature walk with your child, find some pretty flowers, and stamp them onto sheets of beeswax fabric so your Grandma can use to wrap items in something made with love. Google Hapa Zome natural dye printing for tutorials and ideas!
5 | Give cyanotype a try! Kids can easily participate in this activity and you can find tons of tutorials online for how to make this. I think a canvas tote bag would be a great gift for Grandma!
6 | Make a book about your grandma! Or an ancestor from your Grandma’s side of the family. Cuento books is by far the cutest and easiest way to do so. I made one about my great-grandma Lucy and I love reading it to Hazel.
7 | Marbelize Paper Card Take some shaving cream and food coloring and let your kids mix it into a beautiful mess. Press a paper on top, wipe it off, and you’ve got the most beautiful card to mail to Grandma!
8 | Send a custom puzzle of your favorite photo of Grandma that she and your kids can do whenever you visit. Pinhole Press has a good 60 piece one.
9 | Write a meaningful note and frame it with some pressed flowers that your child picked for Grandma. Something sweet that she will cherish and can hang in her room.
I don’t know about you, but I find a lot of stocking stuffers ideas pretty useless. The little trinkets thrown in seem wasteful and so I wanted to create a guide that would be a bit more intentional. This group theme is all about creative journals and interactive books for kids. There are so many great ones out there and you can either cater to your kid’s interests with or introduce them to the world of journaling which they will hopefully continue throughout their life.
1 | Me: A Compendium — This book is beautifully designed and is a great way for your kids to start journaling and using their imagination!
2 | My Family History Notebook — It is the cutest little notebook for your kids to get interested in family history!
3 | Beach Walk — This book is illustrated by my favorite artist and is a great little scavenger hunt for those that live near the beach.
4 | Kids Book of Hand Lettering — If any of your kids love doodling, this book on beginner calligraphy is a great stocking stuffer for them!
5 | Good Morning Yoga — I love that this book is interactive and will help your child (and you!) get moving in the morning. Could turn into a beautiful morning routine together.
6 | Nature Anatomy Notebook — Not only does it have cute illustrations but they can draw their own nature observations which you’ll treasure.
7 | Exploring Nature — Another nature book that has activities for kids to go outside and, as the book is literally named, explore nature.
8 | Awesome Kitchen Science Experiments — For any kids that love all things science or kitchen, this book would be so fun to gift and experiment with your kid.
9 | One Question a Day — This is a great beginner journal for kids. I remember having something similar as a kid and it totally instilled my love for journaling from it.
I noticed that I save a lot of olive leaf branch paintings/embroidery on my Instagram (if you don’t use saved collections for your Instagram, you are totally missing out!!) so I decided to make a little collection here to inspire me when I finally get the
time courage to paint one of my own!

When I think “kid’s playroom” I always see a rainbow rug on the floor. After some research, I found the top 9 rainbow rugs I love and would put in my home!
1 | This one has just enough pop of color and I love how it’s just hinting at the rainbow shape.
2 | By far my favorite one and just waiting for it to be back in stock to buy! I see it fitting so perfectly on the side of a bed.
3 | This was a close second. It’s modern but playful. They also have a very cute navy one too!
4 | I’ve seen this one around and it’s very iconic!
5 | I love the texture on this, you need to click here to see it close up!
6 | More shaggy and fun texture on this rainbow rug! You can personalize any color you want which is really cool.
7 | A classy rainbow rug with just the right colors I think.
8 | If a rainbow colors are too much, go for a subtle natural white. I love this one and am scheming where I can put it.
9 | This rug has the rainbow shape but doesn’t scream it into your face. The perfect balance.
I’ve always been a gatherer of information and lists or goals or things I want to do. So when it comes to Christmas activities I, of course, have a list of things I want to do! I don’t think I can choose just 9 but these are what I really want to do this Christmas season or next!
1 | I made these two years ago with friends and they were a little fragile but made the house smell amazing!
2 | This is a tradition I will be doing at my house, the peppermint snowmen was my go-to activity as a babysitter during the holiday season.
3 | I love the idea of a pretzel cabin than a gingerbread house because let’s be honest, those things never actually stand up
5 | Next year we’ll have a cute foot to document so you can best be sure I’ll be making one of these next year!
7 | I love hot cocoa and I love fudge, let’s put them together shall we!?
9 | I think this colorful garland would be so fun with kids, and I’m sure they’d love to snack on them in the meantime too ha.
A preview of my Pinterest pins lately includes a lot of baby toys and the cutest little girl outfits. I love the weavings with beads and I’ve recently found some beautiful hand-cut paper to inspire me as I work on my Crafter’s Box project!
I plan on knitting that little sweater, the drop back and open embellishment is just so adorable. And you can be sure I will buy that lamb set as well as the matching bear and elephant set for my nursery. I can’t get enough of this store lately!
Starting a number of new mini post series, one of them including little moodboards of 9 random things, mostly from Pinterest. I totally use Pinterest for personal reasons even though it’s heavily suggested to use it for your business. But for now, I just like it to find inspiring images. And currently, my Pinterest boards are filling up with all kinds of cute Spring-related inspiration.
1 | I am loving this lemon pattern dress, it is one for sure I will make for a little girl one day.
2 | This embroidery of this dandelion weeds scream spring!
3 | The colors in this photo I’m totally feeling.
4 | Pink flowers and teal doors are what dreams are made of!
5 | Isn’t this idea just the cutest! You can get the cutouts here.
6 | Spring always makes me want to still my favorite to date.
7 | Not sure what these flowers are but that yellow is so great.
8 | A raspberry sherbert drink is definitely my favorite thing to sip.
9 | Just recently have been a hat person and this pink one is so cute!
