Nothing makes me happier than beautiful dishes. I was the weird kid (for many reasons) who collected funky thrift store dishes in high school in preparation for my eventual fancy dinner parties. Guess what, I still use dishes I collected in high school for my dinner parties. I made these for a fun outdoor summer gathering and WOW do they look fun on the table. A little dollar store glassware and some glass paints and you've got a gorgeous table setting! Since we eat 3 times a day (well, more like 5 for me) I say why not use dishes that make you happy?! Now get out there and Make Your Mark!

Do you love crystals as much as I do? I'm obsessed with them...The stories behind them, the powers they possess and of course, the beauty they have. I decided to make some of my own crystals (using this amazing silicone mold I found on the internet) and fill them with gold leaf flakes and good thoughts. Now I have my own special crystals filled with just the things that are important to me. You could even put a personal charm inside that might mean something special to you! Heck, fill them with whatever you like! Remember sweet friends, stay creative and always MAKE YOUR MARK!

Ask anyone who knows me...I love to write letters. I'll stick anything inside of an envelope and glue almost anything to the outside. If it looks like an absolute crazy person put it together, well, then you'll know it's from me. I'm obsessed with mail and how our postal system works and I love that you can slap a stamp on something and that it takes a journey across the sky to someone you love. This particular project reminded me of Gustav Klimt, one of my favorite artists. I love his use of gold leaf in his work and I thought these envelopes, with their metallic gold patterns, gave that Klimt-esque feeling. Do you like to send Happy Mail? I'd love to hear about what you make in the comments! Sending all of you big hugs and a nudge to get out there and MAKE YOUR MARK!
