Swap a Smile

Swap a Smile
Before blogging was mainstream. Before Mark Zukerberg was at Harvard. Before I met Twitter and fell in love. Before I lost myself in Pinterest. I maybe sort of wanted to join the Peace Corps. No lie.

Spooky Halloween Wreath

Spooky Halloween Wreath
Hi friends! I am sharing a tutorial for my new SPOOKY Halloween wreath over on the SNAP! site today. I am really please with how it turned out and knowing me as you do now, you’ll understand that the best part was the wreath only took half hour!

I felt like the challenge to design a small 100 square foot home was almost built for Meg… With her “Vintage Palm Beach” aesthetic, Meg excels at the kitschy, campy cool style perfect for something like an itty bitty novelty house (Really, who lives in these houses?

InstaFriday: Go Utes! Edition

InstaFriday: Go Utes! Edition
It’s been a long week and this InstaFriday is cherished mostly because…well, because it’s Friday! Here’s how my week started:The Pie has the VERY best pizza in town. In the State of Utah. Perhaps anywhere. You would think that it would signal a great week ahead, but…I sort of drove to, ordered and picked up a rather large pizza in a daze and then took it home. To an empty...
