Happy Weekend + ICFF 2012!

I've been a busy little worker bee this week getting ready for ICFF. This will be my second year attending and I'm super stoked! I'll be in New York through Tuesday, so I hope that some of my posts from Curbly and Dog Milk will tide you over until then. :)


It's typography week, apparently! Here's my wall art shopping guide for all things type-related as well as a roundup of some DIY typographic wall art ideas!

This DIY cork pencil holder and desktop organizer is super cute and super simple!

I love this wood veneer mobile -- I kinda want to make a million!

Before you decide to paint that wood dresser, check out this incredible dresser makeover!

Finnish design gets me every time... Loving this modern dog collection from Neroko!

Wear your "crazy dog person" love on your sleeve--or your wrist.

Gorgeous pet photography by Karin Newstrom!


Happy weekend and I'll see you Wednesday!



Happy Weekend!

While I'm gearing up to head to ICFF next week (no rest for the wicked, as they say), I hope you'll enjoy some of my ramblings and goodies from elsewhere! It was a regular ol' color explosion this week on Curbly and Dog Milk, as you can see. Which, quite frankly, is my favorite kind of explosion.


It's art month on Curbly (yay!), and I'm putting together weekly affordable wall art guides! First up is a roundup of 10 awesome collage artists.

How to make your own paper pencils!

Last minute gift-giving? Try making a few of these cheery little DIY clay planters!

This colorful pup caught my eye this week. Isn't he adorable?!

20 gorgeous tea towels all in one place?? Yes, please!

We launched a brand new DIY column on Dog Milk this week called DoggIY! Check out this modern do-it-yourself dog crate coffee table.

I seriously cannot believe this DIY chandelier is made from plastic water bottles!

Possibly one of my favorite Eye Candy posts yet: 7 colorful, art-filled interiors!

It's raining cats and dogs, or just dogs in this case. I am totally getting one of these dog breed umbrellas (the schnauzer one, of course).

I love this colorful DIY woven bench idea.

And finally, this might be the best app ever created for dog owners or friends-of-dogs! Really.


See you Monday!



Happy Weekend and Cinco de Mayo Eve!

All sorts of goodness is coming up: Cinco de Mayo tomorrow (which also happens to be my wedding anniversary), Mother's Day, and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee for my UK friends. I've been celebrating these occasions all over the Internet the past few days -- check out my posts for some great holiday ideas as well as other assorted goodies!


These DIY paper calla lilies would be the perfect finishing touch on any Mother's Day gift!

For my UK dog-loving friends, don't miss the chance to get a custom portrait of your favorite pooch in the Jubilee Style!

This DIY vintage-inspired wool and leather camera case is simple, beautiful, and e-a-s-y!

Cinco de Mayo wouldn't be Cinco de Mayo without some piñata love: check out this roundup of 7 DIY piñata projects or try your hand at making these piñata cookies instead!

If you need ideas for Mother's Day, don't miss my Mother's Day gift guide over on Curbly!



Not celebrating? I've got loads of other weekend projects to try: DIY marbled glassware, a spring antler centerpiece, some mini DIY gold leaf notebooks, or a colorful driftwood coat rack.

Also, check out this interview with one of my favorite people ever, Erin Loechner and her pups Bernie and George!

This list of dog names for graphic designers cracked me up!

Speaking of, do you take your dog to work? If you could, would you?

If you're looking for a distraction, nothing's better than photos of cute pups! Check out Ms. Beatrice and the dogs of Apartment Therapy's Small Cool Contest!

And finally, light up your space with one of these cool DIY lighting projects: a hanging bulb pendant light or a modern wood cube pendant light. Both are equally awesome!


Happy weekend!
