What’s easy to make, budget-friendly, funny, and PRACTICAL? This hand-painted doormat!
Hellooooo September! The past month has been full of interesting developments including a move to Brooklyn and a trip to Cuba – more info on those coming up in posts later. For this months wallpaper I decided to keep away from anything fall-related and make this mudcloth inspired wallpaper. I did this for two reasons: I’m from Ghana and this design is so close to home and second, I just launched a new business selling African Mudcloth home decor! If you want to learn more about mudcloth, its history and origin is you should definitely take a look at my website and shop WVN African Mudcloth.
Now back to regular programming! Find the download link for your FREE wallpaper below and as usual don’t forget to share with friends and family – and be sure to tag me in your photos of it. Enjoy, my dears!

In this case Beyoncé lyrics were the only acceptable phrases to be DIY-ed onto these tote bags – especially the hot sauce one. I discovered this technique from Pinterest (my new obsession) and although iron-on transfer pens are mostly used by embroiderers to transfer designs onto fabric, it can be used in so many ways! I especially love this DIY because it requires so few materials. Keep reading for the easy-to-follow tutorial to make these über cool tote bags that will have you feeling like a queen; Queen Bey to be exact.
Here’s another handmade Christmas card project! I actually made this one weeks ago and completely forgot about it, but as I sat behind my books studying into the night yesterday, I remembered that I did. Because that’s what studying does to you right? You forget the very thing you just read but you can recall
I have mixed feelings about the Thanksgiving season because it makes me miss my family in Ghana, but then I also know that should we be given the chance to celebrate Thanksgiving – we for sure will NOT lol. It’s not a Ghanaian holiday. I do love me some Turkey though!(not the bland kind, please keep that away from me ugh)
