7 Spring DIYs To Try This Weekend

It’s good to put down the phone and close the laptop. Doing work with my hands helps me stay creative and inspired. It’s also a fun way to take care of my mental health. But sometimes DIYs can be overwhelming for me. So I like ones that I can do in a day or two.

Here are some Spring DIYs you can try this weekend:

1. Monogrammed Ring Cones
If you’re a jewelry girl like me, then this ones both fun and practical. I can never have enough trinkets to store and display my fave accessories. (via Brit+Co)

2. Song & Scripture Cards
Download, print, and listen. Easiest DIY for those of you who aren’t master DIYers yet. (via Styld by Grace)

3. Black and White Painted Vase
I’m in if it involves paint. It’s relaxing and always adds beauty to my home. And it’s never a bad idea to add some greenery indoors. (via Love Create Celebrate)

4. Mini Polymer Clay Bowls
You can use these for your office, bathroom, or in your drawers. I usually use mini bowls like these to put paperclips or to store a couple small bottles of Essential Oils in my bathroom.

5. Compliments Candy Bars
We all need a little encouragement sometimes. This is a perfect “Just because” gift for a friend that needs a small pick-me-up. Or if you’re hosting an event/get together, this works perfect as a party favor (via Oh Happy Day)

6. Terrazzo Style Notebook Covers
It happens to me all the time–I find the perfect notebook but the cover just isn’t cutting it for me. These notebook covers are the perfect blend of simple and colorful. (via Enthralling Gumption)

7. Abstract Color Block Sneakers
This is my favorite! And the one I’ll probably start with this weekend. I’m all for a paint project that I can WEAR, oh yeah! (via Enthralling Gumption)

Which one are you thinking of trying this weekend?!

Hand Lettered Song & Scripture Cards

If you like incorporating music to your quiet time with God, these song cards are right up your alley. I’m a music lover and I especially love worship music. It helps me get closer to God and realigns my heart and focus. Download the hand lettered song and scripture cards here.

These song cards were designed to help guide your devotion time. On the front they have a simple hand lettered worship lyric. On the back they have songs and scriptures to accompany the lyric. There’s also a small note section for you to jot down any thoughts, ideas, or prayers.

You can incorporate these cards into your daily devotional, you can use a different one every Monday to kick-off your week, or you can use them as decoration for your home.

Hope these song cards enrich your life and walk with God! And if you want to have a playlist ready with all the songs on the cards, I’ve got you covered. I created a Spotify playlist, Styld by Grace Songs Of Worship, with all the songs–click here to listen!

Whimsical Floral March Mobile & Desktop Wallpapers

The theme for March is Worship. And I thought it’d be special to incorporate one of my favorite worship lyrics in this Month’s wallpapers. If you know what songs it’s from, let me know in the comments 😉

Of course, I had to incorporate florals because March marks the start of Spring. But I wanted to make them look whimsy, almost otherworldly. When I look at these illustrations I see beauty, vulnerability, uniqueness, and mystery.

Worship is all those things and more. It’s unique to each person. It helps us see the mystery of heaven and God. And it is beautiful when it’s authentic and vulnerable.

I hope you’re ready for more talks on worship this month, as we prepare our hearts for Easter in April!

Ideas & Gifts To Celebrate Your Gals On Galentine’s Day

Galentine’s day is about appreciating all the types of friendships we have. Having a significant other is amazing (I can’t live without my hubby), but sometimes guys just can’t be there for us the way a girlfriend can. Our girls–they get us. And they fill up a part of our hearts that a guy simply can’t. #realtalk

It’s important to cultivate those relationships. And to make the effort (even if we feel corny) to express appreciation. Going out of our way to show our girls the important role they play in our lives builds our relationships and encourages a spirit of celebration.

So if you’re getting ready for Galentine’s Day, here are a few ideas and gifts to celebrate your gals:

Write a letter to a friend you haven’t spoken to in a while
Yeah, this can be super awkward. Probably will make you feel uncomfortable. But let’s not assume that our friend is out to get us or is neglecting us on purpose. Let’s reach out, let’s take the first step. Maybe they need to be reminded that their friendship matters.

Send a new friend a small gift or snail mail
This is a challenge for me! But seriously, what do we have to lose? It can be extremely vulnerable to take a step to build a deeper connection with new friends. You have to do the work! Sending a small gift is the perfect way to show you care and you want to connect more. Simple and understated gifts like a little makeup bag or earrings are good gifts for a new friend.

Give your closest, ride or die gals a customized gift
Those gals you can count on, the ones that really get you, the ones that celebrate your achievements, the ones that like allllll your posts, and the ones that get your humor. Those gals deserve to know how they make your life better. It goes such a long way. And even though these type of friends don’t expect a “thank you” or anything in return, they deserve encouragement and appreciation.
