DIY Crystal Studded Straw Bag

Cherries + straw = two of my favorite summer motifs. After stumbling upon a lot of adorable cherry appliqués, I knew I had to utilize them in some way or another. And with an overabundance of straw bags in my closet, I had plenty of mediums to choose from. Basically, this combination was a no brainer. I’m currently obsessing over traditional Portuguese reed bags, which are each woven on a hand loom by artisanal basket weavers and extremely, extremely durable.

DIY Fabric Wrapped Teva Sandals

Ever since Tevas were re-introduced into my life four years ago, I haven’t stopped loving them – and bringing them with me on nearly every trip I take in the summer months. They’re comfortable AF.

DIY Dried Flower Bouquet

Landscape painter of the West, Glenn Dean, has notoriously used Altoids tins to sketch and practice his piece before putting brush to canvas. He, as well as many other artists who also utilize the iconic Althoids tin for an on-the-go watercolor palette, was the inspiration for Heidi Annalise to try this en plein air method for herself. A few years ago, she left her government job in Washington D.C. and moved back to her home state of Colorado to spend her days exploring the wilderness and nature – all while capturing her experiences in her do-it-yourself Altoids paint kit.
