January Highlights

Well, I don’t know about you… but I’m pretty sure that I just blinked and January was already over. HOLY COW this month flew by! Yes, my work weeks have averaged 60+ hours. Yes, it has been bitterly cold. And yes, I probably only earned a B+ in my Apartment Therapy January Cure attempt. BUT, on the bright side – I’ve managed to make some awesome projects to brighten my home through the winter (and somehow photograph them even though I feel like I am never home during daylight).

Here are some of my favorites from this past month, in case you haven’t visited in a while (or want a reminder of these super easy projects that YOU can do too)!


Here’s the rundown:

Top Row (left to right): 1) January started off with the creation of our Happy Jar, a place to keep track of special moments & happy things throughout 2014. 2) I made a pair of friendly dinosaur key chains for my bestie & me. 3) Quick tips for arranging grocery store flowers for your next dinner party!

Middle Row: 1) Whip out the mason jars & fill them with feathers, pictures & moss for a rustic, wintry vignette. 2) See how I made this giant burlap covered canvas arrow art! (Psst…it was SO easy!) 3) A little piece of monogram art made from a birch slice & wooden letter.

Bottom Row: 1) As part of that aforementioned January Cure w/ Apartment Therapy, I tackled this bathtub caulk issue (update on the bathroom refresh coming soon!) 2) Bringing some more love-related decorations into the home for Valentine’s Day (and general winter cheer), I made an easy heart shaped twig & berries wreath. 3) Probably my favorite project of the month, this rustic photo display was a cinch to make, and is an awesome way to display beautiful prints in a unique manner!

What awesome things did you accomplish this month?  I’m excited for February – there’s Valentine’s Day, plus good old President’s Day (and a day off from school!), and it will bring us just that much closer to warmer weather and longer, sunnier days!

Have a great Friday & a wonderful weekend!
