Handmade Hourglass Ornaments


Today, I’m over at CraftSnob sharing a quick handmade ornament tutorial made with supplies you likely already have on hand.

I guess you could consider me a major scrooge since I don’t really decorate for the holidays. Or any holiday. In the past couple of years (including this one) we’ve moved just before the holidays so I haven’t really had much time to prep for them. Also, I hate buying Christmas decorations. We’ve always been really low on storage space (until now – we have nearly 1300 sq feet of storage space in our new place!), so if it doesn’t fit in a tupperware box, I’m not going to buy/make it.

My mom was always a huge decorator for the holidays & I have such fond memories helping my mom decorate the Christmas tree. It’s definitely something that I want to get into at some point, but perhaps not now. Definitely not until we’re settled in a place for more than a year. So with that said, if I do get around to putting up decorations for the holidays, they’re usually low impact decorations: they don’t cost a whole lot & they don’t take up a whole lot of space. The Hourglass Ornament tutorial over on CraftSnob falls under both of those categories.

Styled. Issue #2 – Party Suite


Jill & I have been on pins & needles waiting for the second issue of Styled. magazine to come out! We were asked to contribute with a printable or DIY for fall merrimaking, so Jill & I collaborated. This is the product of a whole lot of work. Seriously HOURS. We designed all of the party elements from scratch: invitations, RSVP cards, place cards, paper garland, thank yous, menu cards, favors – this suite has everything. We also did all of the styling, photography & production work.

Head over to A Subtle Revelry to see the second issue & download the artwork (we’re DIY 6). A huge thanks to Tai Pan for letting us use their decor at our disposal and Ruby Snap for the cookies in the favor shot. My only regret was that we didn’t make the shoot an actual party. We totally should’ve invited people. Next time, right?

So if you’re planning on a little get-together or a party this fall, please use our printables, k? Also – I recommend you hire Jill to do some design work for you. Her work is the shizzzz.

Jill designed the place cards, menu & banner. I did the invite, RSVP, favor, thank you.
