I am having such a great time in Houston again. I am busy busy with two jobs, doing what I love most (advertising!) and spending lots of time with our Texan families. Nothing makes me happier than little nieces and nephews.
Turns out, my favorite pair of jeans and my favorite yellow purse don't play well with each other. Bummer. I thought my bag would be perpetually green until I took action and decided to fix it. This little tip is so easy, it shouldn't even take up an entire post! Still, I didn't know how to fix my purse, so hopefully I can help someone else with their jean stain problem.
Keep on wiping until the entire stain has been removed and let dry for few minutes. You can see the difference below - it looks like a new bag!
I definitely won't be wearing these jeans and purse together any more...

I think there is a secret conspiracy at BYU to force the students to study.
After we suffer through months of ice and snow there are only 2 days of sunny 40 degrees before we the winds pick up and threaten to blow us away. Unlike students in Florida or SoCal the lawns are empty and we have to fight for an indoor table or even a spot on the ground.
Then there are huge study rooms like the 'step-down lounge' in the engineering building that promises warmth and lots of room for study spots... except you can't get any internet service. No lol cats or laughing baby videos here! What's left? Studying. Actual, pull-out-your-textbook, no-distractions, can't-even-daydream-out-the-window-because-the-weather-outside-is-so-bad, studying. Well played, BYU. No wonder we just won the #1 'hot & smart' universities award from Business Insider.
Anyways, as I sit here reloading my page over and over and dream of spring I can't wait for our summer to start so we can visit our new niece in Houston (who I made this headband for) and soak up the sun in Mexico!
Mr. Sunshine - I'm gonna find you!Materials:
- hot glue
- sharp scissors
- soft, baby headband
- 2 colors of felt
I found this headband through Pinterest but I couldn't find a tutorial! I hate when that happens. I remember using this technique with rolls of newspaper in middle school though so I followed Tim Gunn's advice and made it work.
Next, cut out some leaves and glue them to the bottom of the flower.
Muncle Fred - I am planning another tutorial post inspired by them!
I have literally changed my blog design 4 times since HH started. Every six months or so I get design itchy and have to play around with new possibilities. While answering design questions and helping other bloggers update their own sites I realized how much fun it would be to start a new website!
I'm super duper excited about this because it means I'm going to get to know even more bloggers and you are some of my favorite people. Its right up there and it wants to be clicked on!
Hello Hydrangea Design is a creative site to help you get to know me as a designer. I hope you check it out!
P.S. I'm also offering a discount for the first three blogs that fill out the form to help add some sites to my portfolio. You know you wanna!
