Happy New Year ya’ll!! I can’t belive 2017 is over!! It was definitely full of lots of adventures and changes. I haven’t officially told you, so here it is, I recently accepted a job in Harrisburg, PA and now I am living here! Yes, that life of constant moving is behind me (for now at least).

DIY Yarn Wall Hanging

So, upon seeing countless boho style wall hangings on Pinterest, I decided I’d take a go at it myself. They all looked like they’d be very inexpensive and easy to make. And most of them utilized my favorite material from the backyard…a tree branch! lol For this project, I took inspiration from The Good Time Home Store Blog. What you’ll need: – yarn of your choice -a cool looking tree branch -scissors -ruler (optional) What you do: 1. Cut yarn into long pieces, all about the same size (you will cut them down to your desired length later) 2. Once they are all cut, tie them to the branch by folding the yarn in half and then looping it around the branch and through the hole. (like in the picture above) 3. Hang them all in your desired order. 4. After you are done tying all the yarn pieces to the…

Exciting New Stuff!

Hello Everyone! I have been planning some exciting stuff to share with you all. I want to start Friday Freebies! On this day, I will be giving away FREE printables! I thought I would use some of my design skills to start making fun things for my followers to enjoy. These will be things like adult coloring pages and typographic prints. For starters, they will be available on the first and third Friday of the month starting tomorrow! All you will have to do is download the link and print on your home printer! There is just one rule, please do not sell them, they are only to be used for personal use! I hope you’re excited about this as much as I am! -Tay P.S. If you can’t wait until tomorrow, I have started compiling a library of more free stuff exclusively for my subscribers. If you want instant access to it,…

Creamy Pesto Pasta With Chicken & Roasted Tomatoes

Time for another recipe! This one’s a pasta dish that I came up with by combining a few ones that I read online. A few weeks ago I made basil pesto which I had frozen because I made a lot and so I wanted to incorporate that in the pasta. I also wanted to include tomatoes in it because my dad grows a lot of vegetables in our backyard and if you know anything about growing tomatoes, they always grow in abundance and so I’m always looking at different ways to use them. I didn’t want to make this pasta taste like a salad because pesto pastas that I have eaten in the past are salad-y tasting and served cold. And although, this tastes great cold, it tastes even better when it’s warm and freshly made! Oh, and by the way, when adding chicken to pasta, sometimes I take a…

Hello!

Hello readers (hopefully people beyond my family and friends as well), After being born in Magburaka, Sierra Leone and living in five other places in the past several years, I have been fortunate enough to travel and see a few places around the world. And in doing so, I’ve decided I should write about my experiences. I have a Bachelor’s in Interior Design along with a Graphic Design Certificate and have been working as a Production Artist for various stationery design companies which I REALLY enjoy. Besides my love for design and everything creative, I have learned that I am also really passionate about traveling and food (eating it, making it and looking at pictures of it). As much as I love traveling, I have also realized that I don’t always have to buy a ticket abroad just to fulfill my appetite for new places and adventures. I can do it by discovering the place…
