A Bible Journaling Process Video of Proverbs 3:5-6

Hey, y'all!  I am so excited about today's post!  If you follow me on social media, you probably know I love Bible journaling.  A few weeks ago I recorded a Bible journaling process video, and I am thrilled to finally have it edited so that I can share it with y'all today!  This video shows you how I use watercolors, acrylic paint, and stickers to illustrate Proverbs 3:5-6.

One of my most favorite supplies to use when I Bible journal is a cheap set of watercolors.  I love how translucent the paint looks on Bible pages, and it's a lot more forgiving than acrylics.  Yes, you do get your Bible page wet when using watercolors, but if you're careful, the water will do nothing to the page other than make it wrinkled when the paint dries.  I have a remedy for this though: place a couple of heavy books on your shut Bible, and the page will flatten in no time!  Check out how I use watercolors in the video below.

A Pretty Mason Jar Gift Idea

Hey, y'all!  I have a little gift idea to share with you today.  There's just something so fun about getting or giving a gift in a mason jar.  You can be giving a very inexpensive gift, but if you put it in a mason jar, it automatically seems extra special.  So today's post is all about how to take a small gift and make it look cute in a mason jar with a pretty handmade gift tag.

Free Printable "Happy Birthday" Gift Tags

Hey, y'all!  This past weekend was my sister's birthday.  I, of course, had to create some handmade gifts for her, and I decided that those handmade gifts needed a unique gift tag.  Y'all know I love to create free printables, so I whipped up a fun "Happy Birthday" gift tag, knowing that I could share the gift tags with y'all later.  Well, now is later!

How Nature Inspires My Home Decor

As a brand ambassador for Graham & Brown, I received product in exchange for this post, but as usual, all opinions are 100% mine.
Hey, y'all!  If you've followed the blog for a while, you know that I love to "dabble" in interior design.  I'm not an expert by any means, but I love making my home beautiful.  I like to create rooms where I can just sit, look around, and feel like the room is put together and looks nice.  That makes me happy!  One thing that I've noticed about my decor is that it is often inspired by nature.  I didn't set out to do this, but when I read the description of Graham & Brown's Horizon decor trend, I realized that much of my decor fit this description.
How to Use Nature to Inspire Your Home Decor
I have found that when decorating any room, I'm drawn to blues.  It's apparent in many of the rooms in my house, and blue is definitely a main color in Graham & Brown's Horizon Trend.

Vintage-Inspired Shabby Pumpkin: A Dollar Store Craft

Hey, y'all!  I told you Monday that over the weekend I gave several dollar store pumpkins a makeover.  And I also told you that because I'm sharing those makeovers this week, I'm declaring this dollar store pumpkin makeover week here on the blog.  So today I have a brand new makeover for you.  This pumpkin makeover is vintage-inspired, and while it's a little more shabby than chic, I know that a lot of people are fans of this style.  I'm calling it my Vintage-Inspired Shabby Pumpkin.
