Ahoy! Organization

A couple of weeks ago, I complained about how hard it is to find cute, non-boring pencil cups and my plan to DIY this desk organizer from Anthropologie. Well, my version of that basic desk boat is finished–plus a few bonus details! I’m worried that the semi fores (which spell out Boyfriend’s name, as this was originally … Continue reading

Bits & Pieces: 1canoe2

1. I used to be terrible at browsing through Etsy listings, but lately I seem to be having some luck. Aside from the necessity of search terms with the correct balance of vagueness and specificity (and a bit of patience), the key I’ve found is to choose shops I really like–and then start looking through … Continue reading

Every season, I claim that the upcoming season is my favorite time to shop: spring clothes are my favorite, until fall … Continue reading
