What better way to celebrate Easter and spring than with these easy-to-make Spring Vanilla-Mint Cupcakes  with a hint of mint in the vanilla batter. Then swirl your cupcakes with light mint icing, and finish them off with Pearl White Sugar Sprinkles for an extra decorative touch.

My Take on Mixing Patterns and Colors

by Jillian Leslie on


We live in a mid-century modern house which has dictated many of the style choices we have made. While we really like modern designs, we don't want our house to look stark and cold. Therefore, we have accented it with interesting patterns and colors to make it feel more warm and inviting.

I was asked by Target to share some of my favorite ideas for combining patterns, colors, and textures. So here goes!

Rubber Band Frosted DIY Vase

by Jillian Leslie on


I love fresh flowers! Having them in my house makes me sooooo happy! And now that all the spring flowers are blooming, I thought I'd make a pretty vase so I can have a great  way to display them (like the tulips that are exploding around me). The vase was so simple to do, it took about 15 minutes, and I love how it turns out!
