my spring mood board

Hello! I hope you all had an amazing week! The summer is approaching, only a week to go for me!

I have a ton of exams this week, so I’ll be quite busy. I’ll make some room for blogging though! Once school ends, I’ll have a bunch of free time to blog! Whoop whoop!

I have four finals this week, and guess what I have been doing instead of studying for exams? Making mood boards 🙂

I spent a ton of time looking for beautiful images on pinterest. I tried to stick to a pinkish / brown theme and aimed to incorporate drawings and quotes! I love how it turned out. I put my mood board over top of my lovely chair from ikea. I posted a room tour, which you can read if you would like to see my entire bedroom!

Anyways, as always, I hope you enjoy

3 diy christmas gifts

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Hello lovelies! Christmas is just around the corner, so I decided to share with you guys some christmas gift ideas that you can make at home! You can make these gifts for any occasion, not just christmas.

If you are like me, you save all your christmas shopping until the last minute, but this year I am going to be prepared and I encourage you to do so too!

So enjoy! If you do make any of these, please let me know!  x x x  Jasper

Add a spoonful of this to your bath for a sooth and relax your body.

y o u    w i l l    n e e d :

epsom salts

scented foaming bath (you can also use 10-15 drops of essential oil)

food colouring (optional)

a jar or container

2 bowls

2 spoons

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Divide the epsom salt into two bowls. Add in your scent. I used a lavender scented foaming bath, which has a soapy consistency. I added in around a tablespoon. If you are using essential oil, add in 10-15 drops. Next add in the food colouring. I only added a drop and as you can tell, a little goes a long way. I decided to leave one bowl (left) unscented and uncoloured, but it is up to you.

Stir until the food colouring and scent is evenly distributed.

Next take a spoonful of each and layer it in your jar. Be as creative as you want, you can even make it rainbow if you wanted too! I added a label to make it a tad bit fancier. And you are finished!

I am absolutely in love with this necklace! It is gorgeous and completely customizable. Oh, and super easy to make!

y o u    w i l l    n e e d :

clay

string

paint & sharpies to decorate

First you are going to shape the clay into beadlike shapes. I used a pencil to poke a hole in the centre. Next, bake them in the oven. For the clay that I used, you are supposed to bake at 95° for 30 minutes, but follow the instructions on the package of your clay.

Once they get out of the oven, the fun begins! Decorating! I used sharpies and acrylic paint to decorate the beads.

Once you have finished decorating, string a chain or twine through the beads and you are done!

This diy lip scrub exfoliates your lips and tastes great! At lush, you can purchase lip scrubs for $10, but you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen!

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

vanilla extract (or whatever scent you want)
food colouring
granulated sugar
olive oil
empty container

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Your first step is to add 1/2 a tsp of granulated sugar and 1/2 a teaspoon of olive oil together in a bowl.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Add a drop of vanilla extract and mix together. Add 1 or 2 drops of food colouring. I recommend sticking to neutral tones, because if you add too much it might dye your lips!

Put the mixed product in a container and you are finished!

 

 

I hope you enjoyed these three diys! Thank you for reading

cards, cards, cards

IMG_8324.JPG

Hello lovelies! I found a new obsession. Cards! Recently I have been making TONS of cards, and have decided to share a few with you guys.

IMG_8319.JPG

These are probably my favourite cards that I have made so far. I like adding either a hint of colour (like the leaves) or a pop of colour (like the dots) Most of the cards that I have made are birthday cards.

IMG_8318.JPG

Like this one. Its probably my favourite. I love how it has a banner and a pop of bright colours, along with a hint of baby blue.

IMG_8325.JPG

I also really like this one because it is simple and cute. I used brush pens and gel pens to make these cards. If you want to see what kind of pens, check out Anika’s “whats in my pencil case” I used some of hers, because I forgot mine at my house.

Here are a few cards with a splash of colour. I used a dotted technique.

IMG_8321.JPG

Here is another one of my favourites. I like it because it has a hint of green and it is very simple.

IMG_8320.JPG

And finally, here are a few thank you cards.  I outlined them to add a pop of colour.

 

Thank you so much for reading! If you enjoyed this post, please leave a comment and a like 🙂

Thank you!
