Five Ways To Play + Party With Cardboard

Don’t Forget to Print Your Oscar Ballots!

Don’t Forget to Print Your Oscar Ballots!

Happy Monday and Happy President’s Day! This weekend I sorted through 10,000 emails that have been lingering across three different inboxes for years. Holy cow does that feel GOOD! I’m going to make an attempt to stick to the method that the wonderful Erin Loechner has been pimping out, Inbox Zero. Anyone tried it? I […]

Five Things to Embroider

Five Things to Embroider

I couldn’t get enough of embroidery after I put together last week’s Five Things to Cross Stitch post, so I kept the love going! These ideas aren’t cross stitched but just plain old embroidered and they are awesome. Simple ideas you could do in a flash, and more complex statements you’re going to be dying […]

Five Things to Cross Stitch

Five Things to Cross Stitch

I think it’s about time “Five Things” made it’s comeback on this here blog, yes!? Before the Christmas madness, I had bookmarked several cross stitch projects that I just loved. Did anyone use to do cross stitch (or maybe you still do!?). I did throughout grade school, and loved it! These ideas are a little […]

To end this first week of 2013, I wanted to share some of my personal favorite moments from 2012 on Studio DIY.

Best of 2012: Five Things

I’ve had a blast putting together my Five Things posts this past year!

This is certainly a series I’m excited to continue […]

I’m cutting out early today to spend a few days with my and Jeff’s family on the East Coast, and I hope you are all packing up and heading somewhere (or hunkering down in your own kitchen) for Thanksgiving! It has been one heck of a year and I have so much to be grateful […]

Five Things to do with Wooden Blocks

Five Things to do with Wooden Blocks

I bought a little set of wooden blocks off a discount craft site a little while ago and they’ve been burning a hole in my crafting pocket every since. I have a few ideas I’m going to play around with for holiday gifts, but in the meantime here are five awesome projects to do with […]

A Blogiversary + A Special Request

A Blogiversary + A Special Request

Whether you’re celebrating or not after last night’s big news, I certainly have something a little different to celebrate today. It’s hard to believe it, but one year ago today I shared Studio DIY with the world for the very first time! It simultaneously feels like just yesterday, and far longer than just one year. […]

Happy Weekend!

Happy Weekend!

Phew! It’s been one heck of a Halloween week. First of all, thank you to everyone who’s been voting and helping me plan this Halloween party! The winning sprinkles experiment? A sprinkle covered skull! I’ve got my work cut out for me, but come back Monday for the next round of voting! In the meantime, […]

That’s Handmade!? {Emily Hingston}

That’s Handmade!? {Emily Hingston}

It makes me so happy when things are modeled to look like other things. Does that make sense!? Exhibit A: These favor boxes! I literally shrieked when I saw them. You know those colorful striped confections, more fancily known as liquorice allsorts? That’s what these are inspired by and could they be any more adorable!? […]

Five Cinnamon Flavored Treats To Make

Five Cinnamon Flavored Treats To Make

Mmmmm. My apologies for making you incredibly hungry with today’s Five Things. Cinnamon!! One of my favorite flavors of fall. Any of these recipes would be sure crowd pleasers at a party, or you know, just perfect for a Sunday afternoon. In fact, I want to eat these pretzels so bad that I posted the […]

That’s Handmade!? {snug.studio}

That’s Handmade!? {snug.studio}

While I was searching for a cutting board last week for this post, I came across the most adorable shop, snug.studio, and fell in love with this button shaped trivet. If this is not the perfect gift for a crafty lady (like myself!) then I don’t know what is! They have a few other fun […]

That’s Handmade!? {7100 Islands}

That’s Handmade!? {7100 Islands}

I can’t quite remember where I first saw these, but I am oh so in love. First of all, they come in three of my current favorite colors. I mean, really, I can’t get enough of that orange and that blue. Throw in a little ikat and I am sold. SOLD, I tell ya! So […]

Hue It Yourself: Black and White and Neutral All Over

Hue It Yourself: Black and White and Neutral All Over

I love many things about fall, however the typical color palettes and motifs are not one of them. You won’t see a whole lot of leaves, greens, burgundies and the likes over here. Just not my style! Instead when the fall months roll around, I tend to revert to neutrals and metallics, and I like […]

Sweet + Simple DIY Dessert Party

Sweet + Simple DIY Dessert Party

A dessert party. The best kind of party, really, if you ask me. Not all celebrations have to be for a birthday or holiday, sometimes it’s fine to just invite a few friends over and, well, eat sweets. When photographer Jennifer Fujikawa sent me this sweet DIY gathering, I just feel in love with the […]

Five Ways to Make a Fort

Five Ways to Make a Fort

I asked Jeff if we could build a fort or a teepee on our deck. He said he didn’t want to be “those people that built a fort on their deck” so, that was a no. Instead I’m living vicariously through all of you lucky enough to have kids (or significant others that let you […]

For me, it’s a great backdrop […]

Hue It Yourself: Freshly Picked Peach Party

Hue It Yourself: Freshly Picked Peach Party

This party palette is happening because I made the most delicious peach crumb bars last week, and I am so sad they are gone. Peaches are one of the great things about summer, and they’d make a great starting point for a party theme! I think having a get together around the top pick of […]
