Dear Creatives, Hello is everybody ready for the weekend? Or is it starting early due to kids being out of school for fall grading? I did  a round up of a few things that caught my eye & I hope you enjoy them before we get onto our Feature Friday.


Today feels like this. Phone ringing, emails, kiddo on my strings & a little baking. Maybe without the heels, vintage phone & add a few years. There is another reason I am sharing this today I am in love with MandyLynne ‘s Photography styling s. She makes each image tell a story. If you own a camera, love photography or just want to be inspired you need to check out her site. It will make you want to think outside the box before taking your shots.

The attention to details, the lighting & focus are all worth seeing. I am certainly going to have to invest in a better camera, but until then I can be inspired & take shots that are more thoughtful & even planned out. You just have to see for yourself, as these two images don’t do her site justice!! Be prepared it is photo heavy & can load a bit slow, but is so worth the wait!



Here is a little tutorial to help wrap up some things with a pretty bow topper! Just four easy steps. Perfect for any gifts or something creative you’ll be giving or making. This tutorial, gift wrap Pdf was created by the Container Store which shares some pretty storage ideas along with a few step by step ribbon tutorials. I must say I love their gift wrap cart!


Now onto Feature Friday!

I would like you to meet Lindsay & her little creative outlet Southern Lovely. Lindsay and her husband  are raising their three small children in the south. She started this blog right before she had her third child. She said, “I knew this would be a great way to have some ‘me’ time in the midst of all the chaos that comes along with having three children. I love to dream up new ideas & turn them into a reality, and hopefully I can inspire others along the way. ”

Having a girl her diy tights tutorial caught my eye! You know when they get a rip or hole &  you just want to toss them. Well, maybe not any more when you can save money & make a better pair! Tights Tutorial

Linsay ‘s tutorial for these cute storage bins were also a hit with me. Honestly, you can make these bins with her tutorial not only for a kids room, a catch all or it would be great for a craft room! Especially when hauling a project from one room to another.
