Happy Friday + Random Photos

Happy Friday! This week went by pretty quickly. Don't you love short weeks? For four days, this week was sure busy. Are you doing anything fun this weekend? I am going to be in San Francisco to attend Renegade Craft Fair. I have heard a lot of good things about the fair and since it's my first time, I am super excited. If you are going to participate then let me know in the comments and I'll stop by your booth to say hi!

Have a great weekend and stay safe.

DIY: Forest





This is the most fun and easy DIY tutorial that can actually be done in minutes! Made by Joel always has the most wonderful and simple projects, and for building this awesome forest you'll need only three things that can be found around the house - scrap board, branches and owl (and other critters) Lego figures. This is such an awesome toy for kids! They'll love it and you'll love it too! 

Did you notice the kid's adorable owl pajamas? Isn't that cute?

There are so many wonderful details to this event, the owl painted glass picture and owl cookies are my favorite! Isn't this the most adorable shower idea?
