DIY Birchbox Nail Polish Rack

I have become a bit of a beauty product junkie lately. I have a growing stash of foundations, lip balms, lotions, face creams, and everything in between. It's getting quite ridiculous, especially considering that I'm not a particularly heavy makeup wearer. And really, there's only so many products you can use at one time. But everything's just so pretty . :) Birchbox  and similar services, such as  My Glam , are great for people like me. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Birchbox, it is a subscription service that sends you four or five samples, many from high-end brands, every month. It's a fun way to try out new products and brands without investing in all sorts of full-size items that end up going to waste. And once in a while, you find something you really like. Some of my favorite things that I've discovered through Birchbox are Nars illuminator and Zoya nail polish. Birchbox's packaging is very well done. The samples come wrapped in brig

My Latest Projects

Here are some of the crafty projects I've been working on lately, including a rough muslin dress pattern, some decoupaged floral coasters, and a photo collage.

Easter

I hope you all had a lovely holiday this past weekend. Here are some Easter eggs I created for the occasion. These farm eggs were already a beautiful blue color, so no dyeing was required. I just drew some pretty patterns on them with permanent markers.
