one : i am jewish. that’s the big one. two : because there is no way i would ever consider making a perfectly perfect egg inedible. like no way. when i have kids, we’re using fake eggs. i refuse to not eat the egg.
next week i’ll have one easter project for you guys, but it won’t be an egg project. don’t get me wrong though, i still admire beautiful easter egg projects, so here are my favorites!
i’ve been following kari for a few years now on instagram – and her skills have always amazed me. her work looks thoughtful and delicate — and you can see her insane technical ability in every piece she makes. and she watches the star wars trilogy weekly.
by now you guys are probably aware that i’ve been doing this blog for a few years now – with a couple of lulls where i’ve wanted to just give up. but it’s because of you guys that i want to keep on keeping on!
so i’ve decided to announce that i will now be selling ad space on the almost makes perfect sidebar! this will allow me to create more original content, while only introducing you guys to brands that are like-minded, so it’s like a win win for all of us. you might be thinking — what a sellout. but no, i promise i won’t be one. i just want to be able to keep this blog around!
i’ve decided to use passionfuit for selling ads – it’s an online marketplace for blogger ads, and it makes the process really streamlined and easy, like you can buy an ad right now and it goes up as soon as it’s approved. it also is all swapped out via the site, rather than me doing it manually — so the process should be really quick and painless. WOO. anyone else use passionfruit? would love to know how it’s been for you!
so if you’re a brand or blog or business that wants to partner up, i’m running a promo code for 15% off the first five ad spots! use promo code : AMP ADS 2015 at checkout.
as you can tell from the photos, i have a lot of rings.
so making myself some ring cones seemed like the courteous thing to do for my husband who shares a bathroom with me. after doing the faux speckled candles, i knew i wanted to use that painting technique again soon — and well, here we are.
as promised, i’m going to start doing semi regular roundups of my favorite items at forever 21!
i want to start this column by saying i am not associated with the store, i just have an addiction. i also want to say that i am aware that there are many options for shopping small, sustainably + ethically. but i enjoy F21 and that’s about it. this blog is about fun + pretty things. and not much more than that. real talk!
happy friday! we just started watching the jinx so i want to finish it before everyones done talking about it. i’m also on a mission to switch mobile providers and get a new iphone. (!!) hope you guys have fun this weekend!
i am soooo excited about this — we’ve been working like maniacs on every little details of these themes for months now, and we’re so happy we can finally get our lives back to normal.
i came up with the idea of doing wedding websites when i was getting married and needed a website. i was looking around at my options, but i just really wasn’t a fan of what was out there. so we created my wedding website (which is now sadly expired because i didn’t want to pay to keep it up). after that, we worked forever to get it to the point that would work for all clientele and i think we accomplished that!
i’ve been so swamped trying to finish up blogzilla wedding themes that i haven’t really had a chance to work on DIYs, despite having like three half done prototypes of projects that i don’t like yet. but hey! we launched today!!!
i figured this was a supppper easy project that i could actually finish to post for you guys, so here it is!
