Guys, Spring is just around the corner and I’m ready to see all those pretty flowers bloom and the leaves back on all of the trees. To get myself ready for the new blooming weather, I made this Mossy Home Wall Decor DIY for the HP Create blog. It’s hanging on my wall with Command Strips (easy to remove). What you’ll need for the project:
- “HOME” printables (provided on the HP Create blog)
- X-ACTO knife
- Cutting mat
- Hot glue gun and hot glue
- Sheet moss (found at most craft stores)
- Command Strips
- Optional: Bamboo skewers
The best party about this DIY is it cost me less than $5 to make. To check out the full DIY (and printable HOME letters), head on over to the HP Create blog.

Recently I created some really sweet floral drawer pulls to put in my daughter’s room for the HP Create blog. These are flowers from my garden that I photographed and made printables from. You’ll just need a bit of mod Podge, these cute drawer pulls from Target, and my free printables (or take some photos of flowers from your garden).

I keep looking at my living room and I realize I’m a bit bored with it. I don’t necessarily have the budget to update it right now, but I think I found a few tutorial ideas that will help me out. I shared all of these ideas (from some awesome bloggers) over on the Better Homes and Gardens blog.

I’ve been eating a bit differently for the past 40ish days. No refined sugar, no flour, no grains, and no dairy. It’s basically been the hardest eating challenge I’ve ever had. I don’t even really eat that much sugar, but by day 5 of eating this way I was craving sugar like crazy. The super sad (mostly great) part about this lifestyle change is I feel better. I LOVE cheese (OMG, cheese), but I may feel better without eating it as much as I used to. Biscuits? Yeah, they’re so good… but flour makes me feel tired.
This diet/lifestyle change has meant I need to look at the labels of EVERYthing. It’s surprising how much processed food has sugar added to it. It’s so crazy. Even mayonnaise. SO, today I’m sharing my homemade mayo recipe that I’ve been making this past month. It’s surprisingly easy, and so tasty. I like to make aioli for my sweet potatoes with this homemade mayo.
(recipe adapted from Whole30)
- 1 cup of light olive oil
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon of mustard powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- stick blender (you could use a food processor if you need to)
First, this is important: make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature, that’s important.
Place the egg, 1/4 cup of olive oil, mustard powder, and salt into a bowl. Use the stick blender to mix up the ingredients.
With the stick blender running, slowly add the remaining olive oil. The key here is to go SLOW. I basically add about an 1/8 of olive oil and mix, then repeat. If you add too fast, it could mess up the mayo.
After the mayo is blended and at a mayo consistency, add the lemon juice and mix with a spoon.
Seriously give this a try. So good and yummy.
