DIY Spray Paint Quote Painting

DIY Spray Paint Quote Canvas

  In this DIY project, I’m going to show you how to make a canvas quote painting using spray paint. This painting has a graffiti look, which I think is really cool.

Can a Song change your life?


I was perusing Reddit recently when someone on r/davematthewsband asked “What’s your favorite lyric(s) and why?” My mind immediately went to the lyrics from You Never Know: Don’t lose the dreams inside your head They’ll only be there til you’re dead Dream… Can a song change your life?

10 to dos when your Etsy shop is slow

It’s bound to happen– October through December are amazingly busy months for most online and b&m shops. You’ve been trying to answer convos, package items, work on custom orders, and find missing packages. You’re working long hours, forgetting to do silly things like eat and sleep… Then BAM! One day you wake up and… crickets. […]

I got an exciting package in the mail this week that I wanted to share with you! But first, the back story… One summer afternoon two years ago, I happened to open my spam folder while clicking through my gmail account and spotted an email from an employee for the North Carolina Wildlife Federation. She told me that […]

Nature Inspired DIY Ideas for the Hom...


When it comes to home decor, I love to create a serene, nature inspired space– natural wood, zen-like rocks, and outdoor inspired decor is my favorite. I also love DIY projects, and I’ve been pinning away on my Pintrest boards for the past two years while I’ve been abroad, waiting for the opportunity to have my own space […]
