It’s been a bit crazy around here and a lot of exciting things are coming up (most of which I’ll be able to share with you VERY soon!), but I needed to escape for a few minutes, take a deep breath and share something that I have been obsessing over lately. Fashion illustration.

Cappuccino Biscotti

It’s no secret that I love coffee. From my morning brew to nearly every other coffee-related recipe or project, I’m obsessed. Coffee soaps, coffee cupcakes, coffee decor - there’s something about this delicious beverage (probably caffeine) that I just can’t get enough of.

Painted Kitchen Utensils

A few weeks ago, some of the girls in my family had a craft day at my house. Despite the fact that I have tons of craft supplies and my garage is filling up with roadside furniture collections I’ve been promising my husband I’ll redo at some point, I was at a bit of a loss trying to find some craft inspiration for that day.

Tiffany’s Spring Essentials

I’m absolutely loving the warmer weather that has finally hit KY. I’ve been dreaming of cherry blossoms, hiking, night walks, picnics, cook-outs and every other magical spring activity since, well… New years. And although I’ve been teased for the last month with hints of my favorite season, the trees actually started blooming about 3 days ago, so I took that as my cue! It’s time for a spring essentials round up!

Offbeat’s Picks: The Artwork of Kevin Stinehart + A Giveaway! (Giveaway Closed)

Pierce Collage

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to talk with Kevin Stinehart, a South Carolina-based woodworking artist. Kevin salvages materials like old books and wood scraps and uses them to create works of art. He says, “I have found that in life some of the most striking beauty is found in the discarded and broken things. I strive to mirror that same hope in the art that I create. While the end result should be a thing of aesthetic pleasure, the ultimate goal is always redemption - something new from the old, something lovely from the rubbish, and in each of us, and in all things, another chance to be made beautiful.”

Clean Eating | Quinoa Pilaf + Balsamic Roasted Kabocha Squash

Clean Eating | Quinoa Pilaf + Balsamic Roasted Kabocha Squash from offbeat + inspired

I think it’s fairly common to make healthy eating resolutions in January, and then watch in horror as they go down the drain when Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter hit. Those don’t seem like big eating holidays, which is why we all figure we’re out of the dog house post-New Years — but then the boxes of chocolate, fancy dinner dates, Irish soda bread, corned beef, Easter ham and everything buttery, sugary, salty and fried makes itself absolutely necessary… again.

Coconut-Lime Soap

Yesterday morning, I looked out the window while I was getting ready and decided, “You know what? It looks like flip-flop weather!” I’m not quite sure what got into me, but I got dressed and was completely convinced that I would get to work and everyone would be wearing summer attire.
