Let’s face it. GUMMY BEARS MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY. I recently had the honor of designing our “Make and Takes” again at the Creativation Expo in Phoenix, Arizona. When people came to our booth and saw we were making gummy bears out of hot glue, they couldn’t wait to sit down and give it a go! Our booth […]

Learn how to make your own inexpensive, lightweight geodes out of hot glue sticks! Crystals and geodes are all the rage right now. Since we did our crystal post a couple of months ago, it only made sense to make geodes too!
I love all things vintage. My boyfriend and I are both “pickers” in our spare time, and you can find us at a random antique mall, thrift store or flea market pretty much every weekend. We love “treasure hunting”, and my boyfriend has a gift for turning (what some consider) trash into cash! While out […]
One of my favorite statement jewelry pieces is a crystal necklace, made by my good friend, Jessica. I get a lot of comments on it, likely because it combines three very unique elements: a crystal, a bullet casing, and a Day of the Dead skull bead. For a while, I thought it would be cool […]

Like my last ring DIY, this piece is simple and affordable… and it ought to make you feel […]
If you’re a creative, you’ve spent time on Pinterest.

Project time: 10 minutes DIY level: (Super) Easy This might be one of my favorite projects at the Studio so far. Why? One, because the project literally takes 10 minutes once you have the supplies. Maybe 15 if you’re really meticulous. Low labor, high reward. Two, because the end product is simple, clean, and eye-catching. […]
Project time: 1 hour DIY level: Easy-medium I love Anthropologie. A couple times a year I splurge and get myself a sweater or dress out of their “Freshly Cut” section online. And when I get that rare treat of getting to visit one of their actual stores, you bet I’m going to walk out of […]
