nibbles + scribbles / DIY activity book for your favorite person

I love DIY’s, you guys. I really, truly do.
and I love them even more when I’m making them for my friends and family… or my favoritest person of all- my super awesome hubby! ❤

on our anniversary this year, we discovered a pretty great DIY.
because of our shortage of funds, I threw together a cute little book of our relationship. and instead of just filling it with sappy sweetness (which totally had its place in there!) I also added some fun activities for J to do and participate in with me.

and it was SO FUN. J loved it so much, he decided it needed to be a thing we make for each other often!



but the good part is, it doesn’t just have to be for a significant other. this would make a fun (and nearly free!) gift for a child or a friend. it’s something you can make together, or for one another. other possibilities:

-activity books for long road trips
-keeping kids’ brains active even when they’re not in school
-birthday gift
-anniversary gift
-fun craft to make together
-scavenger hunt kit
-birthday favors

the ideas truly are endless!

this post will walk you through a few super simple ideas (complete with links to bunches of free printables!!) to help you make the easiest, most customize-able DIY ever.
excited yet?

me too!! Continue reading “nibbles + scribbles / DIY activity book for your favorite person”


nibbles + scribbles // how to bake one cupcake in 5 minutes (or less!!)

okay peeps.

let’s be honest.
sometimes a girl just needs a cupcake.

cake, er, case in point:
(hahahahaha punny me!)
when you drive an hour into DC to cuddle with some kittens whilst drinking coffee at crumbs + whiskers, and you get there and realize that on fridays and weekends you need a reservation in order to cuddle with said kittens and sip said coffee.
(this is your fair warning, kitten-and-coffee-loving-friend)
and then you can’t find your car. **SOB**
those types of days call for cupcakes.

but, of course, after these types of days, I am way too lazy to actually, like, bake cupcakes, you know?
I mean, come on.
I just want the yumminess without the work.

yes, you say?
well, too bad!

problem solved!!

one delicious cupcake.
five minutes or less.
sorry about the crappy phone photo. I started eating that deliciousness before remembering I should take a picture. I was obviously too lazy to go downstairs and find my camera. haaaa. Continue reading “nibbles + scribbles // how to bake one cupcake in 5 minutes (or less!!)”

nibbles + scribbles // dazed and infused

happy thursday, friends 🙂

in monday’s post (read it here!) we had a little chat about drinking more water this week, and how that helps your body (and naturally, your overall mood) in, like, a bajillion ways.
I found out that supposedly the amount of water we ladies ought to be drinking each day is roughly 9 cups, and then we took on a challenge to drink 9 cups of water each day this week!!

sooo… how have you been doing with your water intake? 😉
I’ve hovered around 6 or 7 cups mostly the past few days. (sigh)

today, I’m currently working on cups 8 and 9 out of my cute little handcrafted to go cup ❤
wanna know why?

it’s because today, I tried something new: infused water.
(by the way…did you like my obnoxious, trying-so-hard-to-be-witty post title?)
dazed and infused. 
I crack myself up.


just a few pieces of sliced fruit and some tossed-in berries have totally helped me achieve my water-drinking goal!!
I don’t know if it’s because it looks so pretty or if it’s because it tastes so freakin’ good, but something here is so working for me. Continue reading “nibbles + scribbles // dazed and infused”
