Chevron Painted Pumpkin from My Sweet Savannah

Hi Friends! As much as I love to DIY my brains out, sometimes I'm actually really lazy. And as fun as it is to carve pumpkins, I must admit the idea of putting so much work into trying to carve pumpkins and the mess that ensues turns me off. That's why I had this great idea to DIY a no carve pumpkin for you... but even my laziness took over. I started drawing a herringbone design on a white … [Read More...]

Get Crafty! DIY Washi Tape Keyboard

Get Crafty! Washi Tape Covered Keyboard | Hey Love Designs

Hi Friends! I want to put this tutorial under the "easy" category, and technically it is, in terms of the ease of the steps, but boy, is it tedious! I'm already a washi tape lover so when I saw that a few other people had covered their laptop keyboards with washi tape, I was determined to do it! That was a few years ago. You see, friends, covering your keyboard with tape takes a long time. … [Read More...]

I'm not talking textbooks and group projects (where I somehow always get the short end of the stick!) but I like to know that I can always learn and grow no matter how good (or awful) I am at a skill. As we're all aware on this blog, I love playing around with calligraphy and I'm constantly evolving. I went to a real, … [Read More...]

Hi, Friends! Big news! One of my very first designs ever was a DC skyline save the date card. Since then it has spawned into wedding invitations, moving announcements, bridal shower invitations, and graduation announcements.

September Snapshots

Family Photo | Hey Love Designs

Hi Friends! I used to do this over on my personal blog, but I feel like this one captures my life already, so time to merge (without the actual process of merging posts!). One of the things I like to do - whenever I remembered - was to round up some photos that I took from the past month. I love photography and it's amazing the type of photos you can capture even from your phone. It just shows … [Read More...]

Homemade Chex Mix Recipe

Homemade Chex Mix Recipe | Hey Love Designs

Hi Friends! I don't know what it is about Chex Mix, but it's so good! It's one of my favorite snacks to grab for the road or an afternoon pick me up. I love savory crunchy things like chips too. Lately I've been finding I've been snacking on it more thanks to my job's on-site convenience store, but it starts to add up! I also found that I was basically just eating the actual chex parts and … [Read More...]
