New Moon Paper Goods on ETSY

This is a little project that I have been wanting to do for a very long time…just never had the confidence to do it! Even though I do graphic design for other companies or for friends, when it comes to you using your creativity fully and on paper to sell…then for some reason my fear kept kicking in. But I have finally swept my fear away and posted some holiday cards up on my Etsy site this past weekend! And the response has been amazing! Been getting a lot of likes. Thank you!!! I know I posted these a little late for the actual holiday season, but thats okay. I am learning and now that I have the shop up I have to keep up with new cards for the next year! Am already working on some idea’s and cannot wait to show you when the time comes;)

If you get the chance to go and take a peek at my Etsy site, please come and say “hello!” Would love to hear from you!!

DIY Projects to Try this Week

DIYidea10.6.15FMNBLOG

I am constantly pinning new projects I want to try out and instead of just keeping it up on my board I thought it would be fun to share them weekly (or bi-weekly) with you! This way we can DIY together or maybe it will spark a little inspiration for something similar. Also wanted to post during the beginning of the week because if you are going to try these DIY’s over the weekend then you are gonna need a little bit of prep time…Wether its ordering it on Amazon or heading out the store first thing Saturday morning! Here are just a few I found this week that got me excited:

1. Hide jewels or other valuables in this Crystal Knob Boxes Homey Oh My

IKEA Raskog Cart in Every Room

I have this cart at home and have been slightly obsessed. To top that off I got an email today on a few DIY projects and in it were “10 Different Ways to Use the Cart” Since I read the article I have been on Pinterest looking at how everyone uses it and now I want more!! LOL I have been in the hunt for the light blue color ( I own the Ivory) but looking at these hacks it makes me want to purchase them and just paint them myself!
Personally I use it to keep all my YouTube/Camera gear on there. Keep the top open to use as a table, that way I can have it all there and pick up from it while I shoot. 2nd row are my camera’s and cords, mics, batteries and memory cards. Bottom row I keep for all the extension cords, plugs and all the bulkier things. Not as organized as I want, but it works for now.
Here I found some idea’s that I want to try myself and hopefully it will inspire you to get one!

If you are a crafter like me then maybe a cart to keep all your papers, washi tape and all the other things inbetween!

Always a great touch to store your european bottled water and fresh fruit on a cart in your kitchen!Blog HERE

Plants! Such a good idea to have them on wheels. That way you can let them sunbathe or re-arrange the room whenever you want!

FriediaIkeaRaskog2
This maybe a real thing for me….using it in the future nursery.Thinking of shoes on bottom and diapers on top maybe??

How would you use the Ikea Raskog Cart? Idea’s are WIDE open!!

I am super excited to be working with the Ace Paint Studio on the 31 Days Of Color campaign. Been wanting to do a painting DIY for the longest time and this just gave me the best opportunity to do so! Before I started the project I went down to my local Ace Hardware store to see what the Paint Studio was all about and thats where I got really inspired! Going to The Paint Studio at Ace is like going to your neighbor. Seeing all the beautiful colors I started to pick the color cards and mix and match them. I actually bought another jar of paint, but am going to save it for another project!…that will be in another post! lol

For your Friendship Bracelets

I just finished a Heart Friendship Bracelet workshop with UO Space15Twenty tonight. I was lucky enough to host it and hang out with some amazing crafty people!

I got to show them how to make these cuties (I plan to make a video soon) When I was practicing these myself I thought it would be nice to have a card to go with it that said something that you could gift to a friend.
SOOOO I decided to make it!
I have made three printouts for you today, for free! So I hope you print it out and give it a try. It doesnt have to be for bracelets, you can stick candy, photos? Memories? Anything you want、really !

Thank you again to everyone who came out!! You guys are awesome sauce!!
