My First Craft Video!


A new year brings new goals and opportunities, and 2018 is the year that Design Improvised is diving into video production! After dragging my feet for a long time (years, to be exact), I was long overdue for a new way to share my craft tutorials with you. Read on to see how I recreated my pom-pom heart shirt from last year for my first craft video!

Easy Floral-Filled Lanterns

Make these gorgeous floral topiary spring lanterns with dollar store flowers and foam cones!

It seems like every January I find myself crafting with flowers - faux flowers that is! I think it is because all my flowers outside are officially dead, despite my best efforts to protect them from the occasional freezing nights here in San Antonio. So when Oriental Trading asked me to make something creative with these foam cones for the Supply of the Month Challenge, I couldn't resist covering them in flowers! These floral topiary-filled lanterns are the perfect way to bring a little spring indoors, even in the middle of January.

Design Improvised Turns 7!


It's official - Design Improvised turned the ripe old age of 7 this week! I nearly missed it - after a relaxing Christmas vacation, I dove right into planning and projects for 2018. But I couldn't let the milestone go by without a little celebrating, mainly because 7 years in the blogging world feels like a long time! In fact, I've now been a blogger longer than I was a business consultant in my previous life. To me, that's a big deal. Seven years into this wild journey of creativity and self-discovery and I've never felt more fulfilled.

In honor of this special milestone, here are 7 things I would've never been able to do at my old job!
