Ghost is set to change the way you blog. Blogging has essentially changed the way news and events are reported over the last 10 years, but the way we blog, surprisingly, hasn’t changed at all. Most platforms are complicated to operate, closed to newcomers or simply too expensive for new bloggers to take advantage of.
This super simple but extraordinarily beautiful wedding featured on Glamour & Grace took inspiration from the rustic surroundings of the venue, La Provence Restaurant in Roseville, California. The bride’s theme was simple Californian style and a lot of re-purposed bottles, burlap and succulents were used in the décor and flowers.

The 36th Avenue blog has a list of 25 handmade gifts that you can make for under $5, can you believe it, but what caught my eye was this clock that you could make with a paper plate. It would make a great summer time vacation activity with the kids over summer, and you can totally personalise it by using any of the brightly patterned paper plates on the market at the moment.
Valentines Day is approaching and no matter what anybody says, they want to receive a gift. If you have left it way too late to get something wrapped, I suggest you follow the tutorial on Jessica Jones blog, “How About Orange”, and make your own gift bags as quickly as possible.

It’s my own personal nightmare to even think of cracking my smart phone screen. Seriously, my palms get sweaty, I get lightheaded and I start to hyperventilate, it’s especially understandable considering how clumsy I am (just ask my family, I am the only person that can fall UP stairs). So when I saw Jamie’s blog, Creating Really Awesome Free Things (how cool and appropriate is that name?) I almost lost it. I need never have to worry about replacing my smart phone screen. Just a warning, this handy craft tutorial is for iPhones, you might want to consult a professional for any other phone make.
