I feel like a lot of people get overwhelmed when they hear the word “canning”. Granted, it can be a little intimidating if you’ve never tried it before or don’t know where to start, but I promise that it’s easier than it looks. Once you’ve nailed the process the first time around, you’ll be more willing to tackle new recipes and experiment with new flavors. And, I swear, it really is easier than it seems! 😉 And you’ll definitely want to keep canning after you taste how delicious this strawberry jam recipe is too!
I don’t think that many people think about ordering a plain white cake from the bakery counter at their local grocery store. They automatically assume that they have to purchase one of the ornately decorated cakes in the cooler section. You know…those ones excessively covered in cheesy character decor and semi-terrible handwritten frosting? (Insert grimacing face emoji here). Granted, those grocery store character cakes do have a time and place at some events and gatherings, but, it is totally possible to eliminate A LOT of the work that goes into baking your own cake by ordering a white cake from the bakery and taking care of the decorating yourself. And did I mention, it’s super CHEAP and saves you a ton of time too? (Which I am ALL about!) For today’s hack, I used an old school candy favorite to transform this cake. This rock candy cake hack couldn’t be simpler guys. But it sure does transform a plain white grocery store cake into a fun little show piece when done.
These DIY diamond wine charms are easy to make, super cute, and can be made in an afternoon. Check out the tutorial!
Believe it or not, I’m a newbie when it comes to the world of wine. I’ve moved onto some more classic whites and have ventured farther than a Moscato or Riesling, but I’m still not a reds fan yet. (I’m working on it!) As I’ve dived deeper into all things grape, I find myself hosting more and more wine nights, researching perfect pairings, and geeking out over wine glasses and other accessories. One of the things that I don’t have yet….? Wine charms! It’s really easy to misplace your glass when you have a few friends over, so I decided to make some fun DIY diamond wine charms for myself!

I don’t know about you guys, but I have compiled quite the collection of washi tape since it’s been released on the scene. It’s definitely hard to walk by the cute little displays and not snatch up fun new patterns or colors that you may have missed before. Plus, you can use them for SO many different projects! From labels, to invitations, and even room decor, they are definitely an easy to use and universal craft supply!
There are a ton of different brands on the market, but I always seem to find myself picking up Scotch® Expressions Tape. One of the reasons that I love it is because of all of the fun patterns and colors they always release! It seems like there are new varities out for each holiday season (glitter!) and I love the variety of colors they offer too. (Hello, neon!) They are also so versatile! I’ve used them for so many different projects and I am always coming up with more fun ways to use them, which is exactly what I’m going to show you guys today!
One of the many things you have to think about when entertaining is your drink menu. Even if it’s only a dinner party or having a few friends over for a holiday gathering, you still have to plan ahead and pick out some options for the sips to be served.
But with drinks, can also come spills, stains, and water rings on your furniture! Normal coasters leave me less than thrilled with the options out there, so I like thinking outside of the box and creating something that is not only easy to make, but also adds to the overall theme or look of the drink you’ll be serving!
With holiday events and thanksgiving right around the corner, I have been loving the rustic look of sliced birch wood. It adds to the “outdoorsy” feel of the weather and the season. But I wanted to add a small touch of glamour and elegance to them as well, so I created these easy DIY metallic birch coasters to use for my entertaining needs this year!
