It's Towel Day! I made this Don't Panic Tea Towel a couple of years ago for a swap extra. It's super easy and a great gift for your favorite Hitchhiker's fan. Search the blog for "Don't Panic" for the easy tutorial. #towelday #towelday2017 #dontpanic #crossstitch #hitchhikersguidetothegalaxy #crossstitcher #crossstitching #crossstitchersofinstagram #geekcraft

I have a leather bracelet obsession that I'm not ashamed of. I was excited to find some blanks at the craft store so that I could try out some more patent leather paint. It was fun to play around with color and design. #paintallthethings #decoartprojects #patentleatherpaint #craftblogger #leatherbracelet

Spring cleaning has uncovered all sorts of hidden things, like an old and worn pair of black heels. I honestly couldn't tell you when I wore them last. The shoes were close to being tossed when I remembered I had some paint to play with. The end result is a fun pair of shoes to wear this summer! #decoartprojects #patentleatherpaint #patentleathershoes #summerstyle #craftblogger #styleblogger #fashionblogger #paintallthethings

I have a super easy Rustic Americana Banner up today. I've always been drawn to this style--it was fun to be able to make something myself! #CraftLightning #redwhiteandblue #americana #patrioticdecor #patrioticcrafts #crafts #craftblogger #decoartprojects

Sometimes I get an opportunity to put my money where my mouth is. Travel and experiencing different places and cultures is such a big part of our lives and we are doing everything we can to pass our love of the world onto our children. @tripadvisor and @livelokai created a wearable reminder that "as travelers, we're all citizens of the same world." The #wearyourworld Lokai bracelets come in five color combos that represent some of the most common colors found on flags and while this is pretty awesome in itself, for every bracelet sold between 22 May and 4 July 2016, Lokai will donate $1 to the International Rescue Committee to support refugee families. I'm wearing my red, white, and blue bracelet to represent both the United States and New Zealand. #wearyourworld @theirc #ad #tripadvisor #lokai #tripadvisorambassador #travelblogger

If you've followed me for awhile, you may recall the long saga of finding the right paint for our entry. I think it's safe to say we hit on the perfect color! I am absolutely thrilled with how our entryway turned out and it's all thanks to @modernmastersinc and @royalstencils ! Find all the details on the blog today. I haven't stopped swooning over it! #sponsored #mattemetallic #stencil #bhghome #paint #damask #entryway #entrywaydecor #firstimpressions #diy #thedinahdiaries

I'm so excited to see cherries!! I love my cherry trees so much. We lost most of our cherries last year to a fast spreading mold and I cried (for real). I'm hoping like mad that we have a successful season this year. πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’ #cherries #cherrytree #summer #summerfruit

There is a finish in my future! I decided to keep going with #sleepyhollowsampler because it's a smaller project and I really just want to finish something. #thefrostedpumpkinstitchery #frostedpumpkinstitchery #headlesshorseman #crossstitch #crossstitcher #crossstitching #crossstitchersofinstagram #selfishstitching

The top half is finished (minus the overall border)! I'm off by a row because of course I counted wrong, but even though I saw it fairly early, I decided it wasn't a big enough deal to rip anything out. #crossstitch #crossstitcher #crossstitchersofinstagram #sleepyhollowsampler #headlesshorseman #frostedpumpkinstitchery #thefrostedpumpkinstitchery #Halloween

Let's do some before and afters! I've hated our garage doors since we moved in. I considered just painting them, but I really wanted doors with windows. We finally got new doors installed this morning and I'm so happy! Swipe for different angles and to see a close up of the color since the sun is behind the house right now. #curbappeal #garage #garagedoor #beforeandafter

We've yet to take a picture with all the Gould Girls looking at the camera and smiling at the same time, but I'm so glad this motley crew is mine.They keep me on my toes--but that's no bad thing when I'm so short! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #happymothersday #mothersday #girlmom
