As nursery trends change, the traditional pinks and blues are slowly being pushed out in favor of current, updated looks. Parents are experimenting more and more with bolder hues, playful patterns, or simply less of it all. It's easy to see why the minimal nursery look is gaining in popularity.

If you're looking to decorate a minimal nursery or want to give a gift to a no-fuss parent-to-be, you can craft this sweet planetary mobile quickly and easily.

Here's a summertime tip: Always make popsicles. Summer is here, which means the Fourth of July is on the way and you probably have a barbeque to host. Whether you're holding a kid-friendly summer party or an adults-only celebration, popsicles will make everyone happy, including you! That's because they're ridiculously easy to make, you can prep them far in advance, and nothing tastes better on a hot day than a refreshing popsicle. We have two tasty recipes for you to prep this summer. The first popsicles are champagne-infused (adults only!), mimicking the colors in a bomb pop.

Get ready, gang, because this is a fast one! I love having art all throughout my house, but I don't love buying frames. They're so expensive. I don't own any rare art, so it seems silly to buy frames that cost more than the original artwork itself. I like the trending, vintage-y look of a scroll frame, but enjoy the freedom of being able to switch out art pieces, like with a traditional frame. So why not both? With a bit of magnetic tape and some baseboard trim, this DIY hanging poster frame is not only cheap, but also super fast to make, and ridiculously simple.
I've been crafting for a fairly long time (I won't say how long because I don't want to date myself). In all my years of making stuff I can't believe it took me this long to discover the embroidery tool I'm using to create this easy wall art. I first stumbled across this technique on social media.

After some internet searching, I was able to locate what is currently my favorite tool: Everyone, meet the punch needle.
