Just taking a quick break from the minted holiday challenge to wish you a happy Easter!!

Minted_Easter_02

This year, I traded in the typical bright pastels for something a little more subdued and natural. More neutral for my boys and more organic for me. Minted’s Wooded Bloom dream party suite by By That Girl Press fit the bill perfectly. My color scheme was earthy neutrals, mint green and a pop of yellow for Spring! See the full post on julep here.

A special thanks to Ashley Swapp and Brooke Chandler Jackson. I could not have done it without you. Please check out there fabulous work!

10K Pinterest Followers

I’m celebrating because we surpass our goal of 7,000 followers by the end of March!! Back in January this year, I had 1,000 followers – not too shabby for what little to no effort I put into it. With the goal of building my brand and blog up this year, I decided to invest some time and effort into my Pinterest account. I was even more so determined, after I attending an awesome Pinterest seminar at Alt Summit  – a creative blogger conference in Salt Lake City. When I got home, first thing I did was research everything Pinterest. I even created a flipboard magazine dedicated to Pinterest. You can check it out here.

HOW DID I DO IT??? I won’t lie to you. Just like many other things in life. Building a following takes time and effort. There’s no sure-fire formula. But here is what worked for me…

More after the jump…

Ikea Rast Hacks

I’m back with another installment of 8 Ways! Today we’re looking at some fabulous Ikea Rast Dresser Hacks. The original dresser is solid unfinished pine and will only set you back $34.99.  I’m loving how versatile this little thing is. You can go chic with upgraded hardware and glossy paint or you can go a little more modern rustic with drilled holes and a layer of gray paint. The possibilities are endless.

Let’s take a closer look…
