After spending the last two weeks driving up and down the coast, speaking at Craftcation, and now fighting a cold, I am exhausted! So, I’ll be heading out a day early this week so I can drive back to Oregon and get some rest. Plus honestly, how can I top yesterday’s April Fools prank? I totally got you, right? While I’m away, be sure to check out these fabulous links:

Martha Stewart shared one of my photos on Instagram. I can retire now, right? Also, Martha forever.

Get on my walls ASAP! And this too!

– I cannot wait to try this! Also, I’m convienced Justina can do anything (got a major girl crush going on right now!)

– If you’re decorating eggs this weekend, this method takes no time at all.

– Do you think this would work on a large scale? Because I am in love!

– I never got on board with the pineapple craze, but this, this I’d make.

Have a great weekend!

    Congrats on Martha!! That is so awesome! Have a great weekend!

    • Woooo! Thanks Laurel– hope you’re having a great weekend!

  • I definitely think the rope lamp would work on a larger scale, I’d just give it some wire ribs for support to keep it from sagging.

    Hope you feel better!

    • Ooo brilliant! Thanks for the input, I think you’re spot on! Hope you’re having a lovely weekend Shalyn :)
