cheap trick: how to get inexpensive custom framing

I’ve held off writing this post because there’s a definite possibility that everyone already knows about this “trick” and my brain was all, “What if everyone that reads this gives their computer the side eye and thinks to themselves ‘there goes Molly again with the totally useless information’” and then I realized that’s a silly thing to be worried about because THIS WHOLE BLOG is useless information. In the grand scheme of things. But if I help one of you pull the trigger on framing some art you’ve had rolled up under your bed for eight months, or if I help…

saying c-ya with cyanotype: DIY cyanotype key sunprints

So, good news first: we found a place to lease next year! A bona fide house with a yard and storage and everything! We are thrilled: me, to be done with house-hunting and to start planning a new space, and Matt: to have me done with the house-hunting part. Let’s just say I take to house-hunts like a fish to water.

Nothing like an easy weekend DIY to make us feel like we can do things. This project is great if you want to feel accomplished, save some doll-hairs, and have an excuse to cut things out of magazines like we did when we were nine. (Remember when covering your WHOLE wall with magazine clippings was cool? “I can still smell the old perfume samples…” she said, in her best elderly Rose from Titanic voice.)  When I was looking at ideas for updating our study, I knew I wanted an inspiration board. As I combed through Pinterest, copper wire wall grids caught my…

dino succulent planters with craft box

I know what you’re thinking: is this a craft challenge where you have to create a succulent planter while your elbows stay pinned to your side, like a T-Rex? While that’s not required, I would very much enjoy watching you try to do that, so please make sure to send those videos my way.* Back to why we’re here… Last month I got to join my friend Megan with some other girlfriends for brunch and crafts to celebrate the launch of her new business- Craft Box, a monthly subscription craft box that lets you itch your creative scratch all while…
