My Monday post is usually my random day where I share anything about my creative life lately. I wish I could write about something else – anything else.

I whipped up an easy patriotic DIY centerpiece idea this past weekend. What can you make with empty wine bottles and loads of glitter? Amazingly classy DIY ombre glitter bottles, of course!

Today I am sharing a homemade father’s day gift my family gave to the big guy last year. It is a super easy craft that is a beautiful gift from a preschool or toddler aged child. I just love when crafts are both easy and really special. The best part for me is that kids get to join in on the fun of making a craft for Father’s Day too! And it will be a very nice keepsake.
