small space storage solution: raskog kitchen cart from ikea

Keeping a small space organized can sometimes be a difficult task. I’m definitely guilty of having too many items and not enough places to put them. So, I’m always on the hunt for stylish storage solutions to help keep me organized without blowing my budget or taking up too much of the little space I have.

While searching online for creative space saving ideas, I came across the RASKOG kitchen cart from IKEA. With an endless list of uses, this little cart has taken the blogosphere by storm. Thanks to its simple design, large storage compartments and colours (my favourite is the turquoise), I have fallen victim to its charm.

fab find: stylish white coffee mugs

I don’t know about you, but when the mornings start to get a bit cooler, my morning hit of caffeine becomes that much more important! White mugs are classic and can fit into almost any kitchen decor. They can sometimes seem boring and too sterile, which is why I like these mugs. They are porcelain and have that simple, timeless look but stand apart from the rest with a contemporary, square edge handle. They would be great on open shelves or behind glass cabinets.

So, if you had $69 to spend this weekend, which would you choose: a throw or a cardigan?

wedding crafts: bunting cupcake topper

You’ve seen my flag cupcake topper, and you’ve seen the fringe topper I made. It’s time for the piece de resistance, the most challenging cupcake topper I made from my big day, the bunting topper. Isn’t it adorable? The work on this one is highly labour intensive and super delicate (read: frustrating). My best advice is don’t aim to make too many. Even if you have a big batch of cupcakes, you can top off a fraction of them – a sea of toppers can be overwhelming anyway.

wedding crafts: flag cupcake topper

Welcome to the Week of Cupcake Toppers. It’s a working title, but I think you get my drift. There is no such thing as a cupcake that’s too cute. So, I made three different types of toppers to add that little extra touch to the already adorable – not to mention delicious – cupcakes that Sweet Melissa baked for my wedding. As it turned out, some of these were easier to make than others, so throughout this week I’ll post the DIYs in order of difficulty, starting with the easiest. The first is a flag topper, made with polka-dotted washi tape and a toothpick.
