DIY Embroidered Wooden Box

In today’s digital age, it’s easy to lose sight of beautiful, tangible objects like handwritten letters, notepads, and photographs. When I stumbled across Artifact Uprising, a Denver based company who transforms your digital images into professional-quality books and individual prints on thick card stock, I immediately placed an order of all of my family photos that I had been saving on my computer for the past year. This would make the perfect gift for my husband for Father’s Day. But of course, I had to add a handmade element. I ordered a gorgeous beetle pine box, to store all these precious keepsakes, and embroidered the lid with yarn. Embroidering wood, you say?!? It’s actually quite easy. Follow along!

Rifle Paper Co. x Hygge & West

Just when I was about to order wallpaper for our newly renovated powder room, I heard news of our beloved Rifle Paper Co. collaborating on a series of wall coverings with Hygge & West. After much anticipation, the collection finally launched yesterday and just as I predicted, I’m back to the drawing board. Will it be the pineapples or the peonies? Samples are ordered. I’ll let you know . . .
