Every week. 

Every day.

Every minute.

I am so inspired by the creativity across the web.

Sometimes my head hurts from all the inspiration 🙂


So I wanted to start a journal of what inspires me.


Here’s my random collection for this week.



This incredible shade tutorial from Laura at Finding Home proves that you can make a lampshade out of almost anything.



Remember when I made the hand-written towel?

I hope so.

It was only yesterday.

Well…..try to forget it because Debbie made a way better towel than I ever thought about!

See all the details over at Debbie Doo’s.

Have you ever wanted to go to one of those flea markets like you read about in magazines?

Kelly did.

And it was amazing.

Read all about it over at Eclectically Vintage.


Just a few random bits of what inspired me this week.

Have a wonderful and blessed weekend.


Thank You


PPS I could not let the sun set on today without thanking the incredible Kimberly from Serendipity Redefined.  She blessed my heart this week and sent a package wrapped and designed with such creativity and thoughtfulness that I was speechless.

And just so you know…..

…..that never happens (are you surprised)?

Thank you from the bottom of my heart rock star 🙂

    How wonderful Kari..I could not agree more with the creativity. The most touching for me with blogging is the kindness we all share and show to one another. What Shannon started yesterday is just blowing me away with all the generosity people are showing and giving. This is why I blog, put out an olive branch and you have a beautiful tree before you know it. Have a blessed day. I am off to make a recipe towel now. Thanks for the inspiration!~

    I too am amazed by all the wonderful ideas and inspiration out there. sometimes I look around my house and wonder what it would look like if I hadn't discovered blogs. So much of my style and decor has been influenced by blogging, and your blog (current and past) is no exception. XXOO

    I think your blog is awesome. The towels are adorable; your handwriting is just fine. Remember what the Nester always says: It doesn't have to perfect to be beautiful.
