What Would Zooey Deschanel Wear?

Where has this website been?  Why have I not found it until now?  Those are the questions.  I adore Zooey Deschanel and the clothes she wears both on and off 'The New Girl.'  The website wwzdw finds either the exact item she wore or something similar and shows you where to get it at different price points!  Genius!!

Conversation Hearts

This is a craft I saw on pinterest and decided to make myself.  Enter a trip to Michael's for supplies and an afternoon of crafting.  Now we have our very own personalized conversation hearts wall hanging to spruce up our Valentine's Day decorations (or lack thereof).

To make your own, you can use the pre-cut wood shapes, 3 shades of paint, ribbon, and staple gun.  I ended up putting several coats of paint on the hearts to get the shades I wanted.  Once the base dried, I painted our names on the hearts.  Later that day, I stapled the ribbon to the hearts and hung it up!
