These pom pom coasters are a great addition to any drink, dessert, or anything that fits on a coaster! Yea, those coasters you got for Christmas that you were going to regift, you can go ahead and keep them now. Thank me later.
All you have to do is use any old coaster, (I used these), measure your pom garland (Joanns got your back), and hot glue around the rim of the coaster, and TADA!
Seriously. So easy. So cute. So affordable. And may more adjectives that I can put so before.
I made these for a fun 31BITS House Party inspiration. Head over to their blog to learn more, and to add some fun jewels to your summer wardrobe!

I thought I’d do a little TBT of Sophia’s nursery since she turned 1 two weeks ago I’m feeling a little reminiscent. It was featured on Grey likes Baby even before The Shift Creative was born, (or Soph was for that matter) and captured gorgeously by Kayla Adams. I remember how hard it was for me to choose all the pieces in her room because I wanted it to be perfect, and to be completely done before she was here. Mint and peach were trendy then and still are now, but I don’t tire of it yet. I love how fresh her room feels with the grey and white accents and all the fun, quirky details that I found on early mornings to yard sales and flea markets. I will say that now her diapers aren’t so perfectly in place, the rug is a little dirtier, and clothes litter the room, but nonetheless its hers. She will grow up in there and make memories in there, even if the paint colors change, the bed transitions, and the prints are replaced by posters- it will always be the room I made for her to call her own!
Take a peek!
P.S- I included some maternity shots too, the reminiscing continues…

I love this room for many reasons, but I guess I’ll just name two. First, because the couple I designed it for are super awesome and let me take over their space, yet still staying true to their vision. Second, because the wife is the one who really encouraged me to start a blog to begin with, so hats go off to her!
Talk about a transformation! For under $1500 I redesigned this whole room from drab storage room, to industrial office and cozy guest room! My friends wanted an environment for a study, while staying warm for a guest room. The white bedding and sheet set from West Elm really brighten up the room, and look great paired with the Moroccan rug from Rugs USA, giving the room that homey vibe they wanted!
This bookshelf from The House of Industry was a steal & is def a focal point of the room!
Let’s talk about this desk! My talented husband custom built it for this room, and I’d say it was the perfect touch! Thick slices of wood, industrial piping, leather accents, and a west elm table lamp on top all create a perfect work space!
Don’t let your budget discourage you from making your space look awesome! It is amazing what you can do with a small space, and an even smaller budget!! … Read More
From the neon color palette to the subtle tribal vibe, this brunch was so much fun! I got to be in front of the camera with some of my best friends and our littles to honor the thick bond between mamma and babe. Monique Taylor captured the day beautifully, and put up with three crazy babies, and even crazier mammas!!
Watermelon topped with goat cheese and basil was prepared for the appetizers, salads served in bread bowls, and strawberry shortcake in push pops for dessert! Seriously, yum!
These DIY instruments added the perfect playful charm, although to be honest they were more for looks than practicality.
While we made these feather crowns for the shoot as something sweet to wear, imagine the educational aspect that can be conveyed to our littles regarding the Native American culture and history.
As a new mom I understand how hard it can be to grab dinner with friends. There are many times I think, “I want just a day to myself,” with no “mamma, mamma, mamma” whines, pulling on my leg or hair, unloading and loading the car with all things baby, feeding, changing, and the list goes on. Yet, even when I have those couple hours to myself I find myself looking in the rearview mirror for my little one, waiting to hear her soft babbles, to see her sweet smiles, and to receive her sloppy kisses. Sometimes I get lost in the to-do lists, and don’t take the time to soak up her gentle and quiet spirit, her curious nature, her giggles, and even her whines- all of which remind me of her dependence on me. She needs me. Wow, what a privilege it is to be a mom. I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I do, and I wouldn’t change it for anything! Loved this day, and love these people. Hope you dig it as much as I do!! XO! … Read More
Whether you’re serving an icy cocktail or a pink lemonade, these cute (and super easy) DIY Tassle Drink Stirrers will jazz up any summer beverage!
All you need is a box of extra long party picks, colored embroidery thread, a pair of scissors, and a hot glue gun! Simply wrap the thread around the pick, glue the ends, and then attach the tassle. Never made a tassle before? Don’t fret, it’s a piece of cake! Take the embroidery thread and wrap it around your fingers (approximately twenty times, see below). With a scissors, cut the bottom of the wrapped thread, holding tight to the opposite end.
Tie a tight knot at the top of the bunch, trim the ends, and voila! You’ve made a tassle! Glue them to the drink stirrer, and you’re ready to start pouring.
These make THEE perfect addition to your party, event, or when you’re just feeling like adding some fun to your day!
You can even use these cute stirrers as a fun addition to your potted plants! So adorable!
Here’s a peek at some of the photos I styled, and Kayla Adams captured for Mixie’s lookbook.
I loved the vintage vibe of this shoot! What do you think? Do you want to add some funky vintage threads to your wardrobe?
