Go big or go home!

We need to lead with love more than ever these days...so why not start with a giant Valentine's Day card!
We used triangle shaped card stock to create our geometric hearts and glued it to poster board!


You can watch us make ours on our YouTube Channel while singing, playing connect four and of course, drinking!


What we did for love!

Cherry-Rific.

We love our cocktails!
This year for Valentine's Day, we're serving up cherry gin (or whisky) fizzes!


Traditionally these cocktails are made in a Tom Collins glass...but we didn't have them...so use whatever you have!


In your glass add a splash of club soda or seltzer. 

In a shaker filled with ice add:
2 oz gin or whisky
1 oz simple syrup
1 oz lemon juice
2 oz cherry juice
1 egg white (adds a smooth silky foamy texture) 

Give it a good shake and then add to your glass.
Enjoy!

Two Hearts that Beat as One.

Love notes, cards and photos fit perfectly between these copper wire hearts!


You'll be making two back to back hearts with one piece of wire.  The wire is easily bendable with your hands but you can also use pliers if you have them!




Cut a piece of wire about 2 feet long with your wire cutters.


Make your first heart by twisting the wire in the center, flipping it upside down and continue to shape a heart. This may take a bit of trial and error, but it's so worth it!

Once your first heart is formed, twist one end of the wire around the bottom, bring it around and form your second heart.


You're almost done! Clean it up a little and cut the wire to whatever height you want.


Drill a small hole in the center of the block, careful not to drill all the way through.
Glue the wire to the block and your photo holder is done!


These are great for Valentine's Day but can also be used all year long...or make some to throw in a plant!


Watch us make these on our YouTube Channel!


All you need is love!

It's gonna be a Happy New Year!

We can't believe this year went by so fast!
Of course, we have to start the New Year with a DIY project...we're ringing in 2017 with these glittery vinyl candles.


We colored our vinyl numbers with a gold Sharpie then added gold glitter using spray adhesive and stuck our numbers on the candles!


The year of glitter and gold!


5...4...3...


Open Sesame! 
Happy New Year!
