A Few Blogs That You Absolutely Need To Know About

Hello my loves!  Great news, I am on mile 22 of this month long marathon.  Miranda’s wedding is t minus 9 days and counting and I am EXCITED and a little stressed, but don’t tell her that!!

I have a few blogs that I am currently obsessed with that I feel like I need to shout their amazingness from the rooftops!  I always love to know what people are currently reading.  Here is my short list.

Up first A Pair and A Spare.

AP&AS is full of really fantastic projects and beautiful photography.



I am pretty in love with this macrame dream catcher that she just did.

Gwen, who just so happens to be one of my favorite people ever, writes the blog The Makerista.  You guys.  She is just so talented.  And gorgeous.  Of course.


She is a girl after my own thrifting heart, check out this upcycled thrift store art that she just shared.


I know that most of you know my friend Kelly from Studio DIY (she is part of the quarterly color challenge group) but if you havent popped over to her site, you are missing out.


Every time I am on Kell’s site I am instantly happier.  I dont know.  It might be the confetti.  But whatever it is she shouldnt stop.  Or the fact that she has balloons that say Hip Hip Hooray.   Plus she is the most delightful person in real life.

This last blog is one that I am VERY excited to introduce you too… remember a few weeks ago when I posted about Creating With The Stars?  Well I am pretty sure that I won the lottery with my partner, or should I say partners?  Meet Mallory and Savannah from Classy Clutter.



They are adorable and hilarious and in it to win it!!  I mean, when you guys see their project this round you will DIE.  It is so good!!!

I am off to finish my taxes and hopefully pump out a few projects to share while I am in the midst of wedding chaos!

But the question remains, what are your favorite reads right now?  Leave the URL in the comments so we can all check them out!

    It’s not strictly a DIY blog, but for design inspiration I absolutely love style by emily henderson. I also get heaps of fun kids craft ideas from happy hooligans. And of course Young House Love are consistently amazing!

    Good luck with the wedding!! I DIY’ed my brother’s wedding and coordinated it all…while pregnant :( I found it so much harder then just decorating..because you only get in the space the day before the wedding so you hope everything you have been gathering and making all looks good in the end, because you don’t have a second shot. But it turned out stunning, then I slept for a week, and I don’t ever want to do that again…ok well not being 5 months pregnant with my 4th kid under 5 years! My husband says, my brother got a wife that day…and he finally got his wife back!

    bleeeerrrrrghhhh…I just found you and seriously am in total creepy love of your entire blog and style and am thinking about not even following you because you’ve got the kind of mad decorating skills that make a girl get lost on your site and ignore dirty dishes and crying children and even some unwatched episodes of parks and rec and I’m just not sure i can handle that kind of distraction in ADDITION to pinterest and insta. But of course i obviously will just so that I can aspire to grow up and decorate as fan-freaking-tastically myself! Also needed to say a huge thanks for sharing your real life story…it speaks to me in more ways than I’m comfortable sharing openly on the interweb 😉 so THANK you. And keep up the super fab projects!!

    Oh my goodness, you! I am so honored!!! You are the sweetest, and what amazing company I’m in! Thanks a million for makin’ my day, Mandi!! =)
