Nov 14, 2013

Do-It-Yourself decor is the best ... there's nothing better than seeing something in your space everyday that YOU customized for yourself.  

I know its a little backwards to be doing a Fall post after I did a Christmas related one ... But - If you want to get some last-minute fall decorating in for cheap - here you go!

This fall decoration was EXTREMELY cheap and easy to make. I put these together one afternoon with my friend Belinda. We were inspired by this tutorial, but customized them a little.

The holidays are coming up and that means time to start thinking gifts! I love giving handmade gifts because: It can be WAY cheaper than buying similar items in store, it makes gift-giving more meaningful.

Quinoa - In a wrap, Southwest style

My friend Brenda and I made these southwest-style quinoa wraps in about 20 -30 minutes. It might have taken us a bit longer, but only because we were filming our "How To" YouTube video (watch it below!) at the same time, so we might have stopped a few times because we were laughing or had to redo a shot.
