eHow diy: Lace Trim Plaid Top

Words can't express how stoked I am for the autumn season. It's my favorite time of the year; not just because of the pumpkin coffee and apple picking, but I love being able to layer and feel so much more comfortable during the day. This Lace Trim Plaid Top DIY combines fall and summer elements to create a shirt that looks great with or without a cardigan. I like to wear it with high waist jeans and a chunky cardigan. Visit eHow for the tutorial by yours truly! (PS: it's no-sew, too!)

diy: Gemstone Graphic Top

Bring in some sparkle with this easy, upcycled project. I used an iconic "I (heart) NY" tee that I thrifted for about $1.50. I'd love to also try this out with a worn in band tee for that downtown cool look - in either case, I love how simple yet statement-making this DIY is.

martha stewart home decor diy: Wooden Chalkboard To Do List

Recently, I took on some supplies from the new Martha Stewart Crafts ® Chalkboard Line (by Plaid Crafts) including Adhesive Silkscreens, Chalkboard Paint and the awesome Erasable Liquid Chalk. Available at Michaels, the line lets you effortlessly take on the chalkboard trend. 

I wanted to make something useful for my busy bee freelancing tasks, so I whipped up a re-usable to do list. The split black vs. red make it easy to designate super important tasks in their own separate section. I'm thinking of attaching magnets to the back, in order to display it on my fridge. Otherwise, I've just been propping it up on my desk as a functional decor piece.

Take a sneak peek at the collection, right here:
