Home is Where the Heart is

Something that rings so true, but that can oftentimes be forgotten or muddled in the midst of our day to day.

Home is where the heart is.

Home is where the heart is.

My sister-in-law is moving off to college in a few months and recently celebrated quite the American turning of age.

In light of these two special milestones and taking advantage of my recent creative return, I felt it only necessary to make her something special. And practical, of course, too.

She’d been tossing around decor ideas for her future room and in true Tiffany fashion, I figured I could kill two birds with one (homemade and heartfelt) stone.

Cute, catchy and thoughtful. That’s exactly the type of quote I was searching for. Then it hit me. Home is where the heart is. Perfectly fitting.

Designed from scratch, the print at its base holds one of her favorite colors, yellow, to lay a foundation of comfort, while the neutral complimentary grey tones allow it to shine just shy of overwhelming the meaningful words.

A thoughtful phrase to comfort while she’s away packaged into a lovely piece of decor. Two birds? Most definitely.

Weekend DIY: String Nail Art!

I’ve been MIA for a while, I know. The busyness of life has overwhelmed my schedule, leaving little time to relax, nonetheless extra time to share with my virtual friends.

Last weekend, however, I found myself with a jam packed weekend of R&R, connecting with friends and being pampered at the day spa. Feeling a bit more relaxed than of late, Sunday found me eager to make a birthday gift for friend. An hour, a few paint laden fingers, and some hammered nails later emerged this lovely piece:

I’d been wanting to try my hand at nail art since I came across this on Pinterest, but hadn’t made the time. Now that I know how easy it is, I’m sure something like it will find its way into our home soon!
