Once upon a time, I discovered that there was a craft store on my way home from work. I didn’t realize it was there until a few weeks ago when we needed tulle for our Color Run tutus. Now, I fear for my wallet.
When I went there the first time, I walked around and got inspired to make a bunch of other things. So I went back there a few days ago and picked up a few supplies – yarn for a hand-knit scarf and then chain and the feather below for a necklace.
I think I’m back on the DIY train. There’s just something so satisfying about crafting your own jewelry/apparel because 1. it was probably cheaper and 2. you love it more because you customized it how you want. I know this isn’t a craft-focused blog, but I just feel the need to share randomness sometimes. This is your bit of randomness for this week. I like arts and crafts. Can I please just go back to kindergarten?
Aaaaand moving on.

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things
Vanilla Chai Black Tea – I know I’ve declared my love for chai tea with milk before, but I just need to let everyone know that this vanilla chai situation smells like a candle store. Oh, and the flavor is spot on. Go get some.
Gotham – Matt and I have been really enjoying this show lately. It’s technically about Bruce Wayne (aka Batman if you live under a rock) but more so James Gordon and solving random crimes around Gotham – everything seems to relate to classic characters with appearances by the younger versions of Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Poison Ivy, and more. I highly recommend it!
Gold Layered Necklace Set – I’ve been loving the look of layered necklaces lately. I found this one on Pinterest and am determined to make something similar. OR you can visit the link I provided and purchase this bad boy on Etsy.
Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cake – I’ve had strawberry chocolate chip muffins before, and they were AMAZING. This cake dealio just calls to me.
