diy coasters

Supplies needed:
mod podge
craft paper
paint brush

i needed a coaster for work so i thought it would be fun to make some.
i'm sure there are a bunch of tutorials out there like this but here's my version.
i got these wooden coasters from Michaels that came in 4 pk.
first, trace craft paper in the size of the coaster and brush a coat to glue 
the paper onto the wood.
next, continue to brush a few coats of mod podge entire paper.
(wait 5 minutes in between coats)
i cut out an arrow design for one
and a stencil cut out of my initial for another.
i think it's a fun way to get creative
or personalize it for a gift even.

hope you found this helpful! :)

blue wall

Hi guys, who else is waiting for Spring to come besides me?
Truth be told, I don't know how to wear heels anymore.
I got these booties from nordstrom and after wearing them for 3 hours,
my feet were killing me. I love love the look but sadly I think I'll have to exchange 
them for something more comfortable.
I live in flats these days. Once upon a time I would
never leave the house in any thing but heels.
Now I don't care anymore, comfort is definitely more important.
What about you? What's more important?

DIY: polka dot vase

.I found this pier 1 imports vase from the thrif store for $2.99. I painted
 polka dots all over using  gold nail polish.
Quite fun, and if you mess up you can use a q-tip with acetone to remove any
mistakes. Don't worry about it being perfect.
Just have fun!
 I'm quite happy with how it turned out, and it took me approximately
10 minutes. I think it's very Kate Spade-esque.
Let me know what you think and thanks for reading.
