Art & Organization

Nothing makes me happier than creating something beautiful that also serves a function. I feel like I’m always much more proud of the projects I make that solve some sort of problem that I’m having. If you’ve got too much clutter in your office or your home, you’ve come to the right place for inspiration. I should say that I have a very minimalist and natural aesthetic, so while I find each and every item that I’m sharing beautiful, you might think they are a bit plain. I hope that you can find inspiration in everything, though, maybe you can infuse your personality into one of these projects!

I feel like my life changed the moment I hung a key hook by the door of my first apartment. Never again did I have to miss the bus because I spent an extra minute or two looking for keys and I haven’t looked back. I love the natural wood and green of the plant on this key hook. It’s the perfect thing to welcome you home.

My mom has a bunch of old wine corks in a vase that she’s trying to find uses for. I don’t blame her for keeping them. A lot of corks have memories attached to them and as a bonus, they look pretty cool. I decided to try to help my mom out by finding some fun wine cork crafts for her to try out.

Summer weather is the perfect time to head outside and try out some large scale projects. Lots of fabric dyeing techniques require tons of space and fresh air to help dry your creation. So take advantage of the lovely summer weather and try a new technique!

Though you’re painting the fabric rather than dyeing with this technique, the result is still super fun and you can definitely do this project outside. This is a great family project because every age group can enjoy it. It could also be really fun on a pillowcase for a slumber party.

Alcohol Ink Obsession

Check out our Craft Trends board on Pinterest!

I haven’t really made it a secret that my newest crafty obsession is definitely alcohol ink. Ever since I discovered it, I have tried out so many techniques using it and I absolutely love the results. Here are some of my favorite techniques that I can’t wait to try.

Alcohol Ink Mirror

Watercolor Mirror

This is one of my favorite crafts I’ve made with alcohol inks. I love the sort of imperfect frame around the mirror that the inks created and the colors kind of remind me of a globe. You could definitely give this more of a watercolor feel with more blending solution and less ink.
