Happy New Year + Favorite DIY Moments from 2012

December 29, 2012

Hi Friends!

I had so much fun with Love and Rosen this year and I keep striving to learn and grow. This year was filled with a roller coaster of life experiences but in the end I am lucky to have a healthy and happy family. Isn’t that what matters most? I think so.

Thank you so much for reading, leaving comments and sharing with others. I’m so excited to share all of my ideas for fun craft projects, DIY jewelry, home decor inspiration, designer features and of course cookie recipes over the next few months. I hope you continue to join me on this journey.

Wishing you a very happy & crafty New Year!


A few of my favorite DIY moments from 2012…

A Color to Love: Mint

March 12, 2012

I have been thinking about how much I like the color mint. It’s so sophisticated and girly at the same time. Here are a few minty finds for your viewing enjoyment.

Wise Owl Bank

Maybe more fun and quirky than sophisticated in this case…

Out & About: NEW at Elle Communications Showcase

March 2, 2012

Last night I attended a showcase at the Elle Communications offices in LA with my two best friends. It was a lovely event co-hosted by Fashion Intel, Refinery29, Glitter ‘N Glue and Style Section LA. Attendees got the chance to see Elle Comm’s client’s latest collections such as Leoluca Handbags, Made for Good, Raven + Lily, Future:Standard, Jedidiah, MusiCares, UNITED Artist Network, GIVEN and more. How could I pass up jewelry and accessories? Of course there were drinks and cupcakes but the extra fun part was a DIY necklace station, a braid bar and nail lounge. Thought I’d share some photos from last night. Enjoy!

DIY Necklace Station. Yes, those are black, silver and gold bobby pins. Such a great idea! If you are already a follower of Glitter ‘N Glue, you may recognize her amazing neon studded clutch. Here is a tutorial on how to make it yourself:

Handmade jewelry designs by Raven + Lilly. Really an amazing line dedicated to empowering women through their design partnerships.
