It's that time again! This month I really enjoyed both my book & DIY project! (along with some pool time) :)

This month's book was Sophie Kinsella's newest Wedding Night. Over the past 10 years I've read every book by Sophie Kinsella including all her books written under her first name, Madeleine Wickham. A few of my favorites by her are Remember Me & Twenties Girl.

Wedding Night did not dissapoint. It told the story from two sister's point of view which was a nice change from her other books. You will literally laugh out loud in the first chapter and find yourself rooting for unexpected characters. This is certainly not your typical kind of Wedding night!

My favorite part:

"You went to the guest house?" I repeat at last, faltering. "You did all that? For me?

"Of course," says Richard, as though it's obvious.

"Even though I'm married to someone else?"

"Of course," says Richard again.


Richard shoots me a disbelieving look as though to say, Do you really have to ask?

"Becaseu I love you," he says matter-of-factly.

Now on to the DIY! As of June 1st my boyfriend and I are currently living together! Ah! I know! So I'm always looking for new ways to make it "us". As I stared at our matching Ikea wicker hampers I had a great idea! Matching His & Hers signs for the front.

What did I use to make them:

  • (2) wooden shapes from any craft store-I used hearts but any shape will do
  • Chalk board paint
  • Chalk or chalkboard markers
  • Any decorative pieces you'd like to add-I used keys-
  • Glue gun
  • Hemp cord
  • Scisors

How much did it cost?

The wooden hearts, chalkboard paint & cord were definitely under $10.

How did I make them?

Step 1: Paint both wooden shapes with the chalkboard paint


Step 2: Use your chalk/Chalkboard paint to write whatever your heart desires!


Step 3: Cut your cord to an appropriate lenght and hot glue it to the back

Step 4: Add any decorative pieces and you're done! (Cat not included)
