Happy Friday Eve, friends! I thought it would be fun to offer up a few downloads to go along with the bouquet from the other day. If you're thinking of sending a few bouquets to your favourites, print off one of these pages and wrap up your blooms in style!

Download the sheets here! And if you're into hand lettering, check out my Etsy shop for more :)


Do you have any fun plans for Valentine's Day? I think Will and I will make pancakes and see a movie!

Have a good one, lovelies.

Florals For: Palentine's Day!


Well, hello there stranger! I know it's been about a million years since I updated this space. With work and freelance projects, it's been tough to find time to blog (and you know, have a home and social life). But I am determined to get back to blogging, and to create content that I hope you appreciate, and that I know I love making. 

To get back in the swing of things, I put together a quick DIY that you can do to celebrate Valentine's Day. But really, is there ever a bad time to send your buddies flowers? Nope, there isn't. So put together an arrangement, or pick up a pre-made one up at the market, and go to town. 


Wrap up your arrangement with some pretty paper, and you'll have a great pick-me-up to send to your best friends. 


If you want to do a twist on the standard arrangement, pick up some patterned bags and pop the flowers inside. Put a vessel inside so the bouquet stays upright and well-hydrated! These bags were from the Oh Joy! collection at Target. They're sold out now, but a gift bag with the handles cut off would work too.

Drop the blooms off on a friend's doorstep! Now go ahead, make somebody's day :)

There you go! A quick and simple way to show your favourite people just how much you care. 

Check back tomorrow for some printable downloads to go with your arrangement!

Ikea Midcentury Sofa Hack


Hello, friends! I hope your week has been going well and that you're enjoying some of the holiday spirit that's floating around. Things have been pretty crazy around here lately, but I've got some time off for Christmas and I'm really looking forward to a bit of a break. 

In the meantime, I wanted to share a bit of apartment progress! I've lusted after these sofas for a while, but I knew I needed to come up with a more budget-friendly option. Cue the Ikea hacks! 

I bought this sofa a few years ago, and originally got it with the floral cover. I loved it for a while, but knew I wanted a change.


I went back and forth over which cover to replace my floral one with. Eventually I settled on the Isunda grey. I thought it had a nice, mid century feel, and I LOVE the texture. The great thing about the Karlstad covers, is that they're really not covers at all. You take the whole sofa apart and replace each piece's fabric. As you can see from the pictures, it looks completely reupholstered. 


The legs came from this Etsy shop, and they are fabulous. They come untreated and I stained them myself.


Overall, I'm so happy with how this hack turned out. It's a great way to get some mid century style on a budget.



What's your favourite Ikea hack? Have you had success with one before?

I'd love to hear!
