The week after a long weekend always feels rushed. Friday is here before I know it, and half the things on my to-do list didn’t quite get done.
I’ve been in crunch mode lately because I’m launching a brand new online course to my readers over at GemmaBonhamCarter.com that is all about how to create and launch an online shop selling physical products (like what I do over in my Etsy shop). I have had so many people ask about how to do this, and so I’m thrilled to be teaching it! If you happen to be a blogger/online entrepreneur – or want to be one (!!) – make sure you get on my email list and join our Facebook Group so you can stay in the loop.
I didn’t write a post about it, but I snagged this seen-better-days outdoor sofa from a local freecycle group, gave it a coat of black spray paint, and it’s made our front porch SO much more comfortable. I need to give the cushions a good clean (they don’t zip off, so I need to use an upholstery vacuum/cleaner), but I’m totally digging it. I put the baby gate up to block off the steps and basically create a little outdoor zone. I brought out play-doh the other day and set James and Maya up with it, and literally sat on that couch and read my book for a solid 45 minutes. #parentingwin
It’s Sunday evening, so you know what that means – The Creative Gallery! If you’re new to The Creative Gallery, it’s an amazing weekly event where bloggers and readers can share their latest projects.

Here’s the latest from The Sweetest Digs this week:
I rounded up my top 10 bachelorette party gift ideas. There are some REALLY cute things (like those floral robes – how I wish those had been around when I got married!).
I launched a whole collection of cosmetic bags in the Etsy shop this week. I’m dying over how cute they are.

And now for some of my favorites from last week’s party:
I’m OBSESSED with these cute modern terrariums that Amy made. I mean, aren’t those so fun and different from what we usually see? Her blog is new to me, and it’s my new fave. I got lost for a loooong time checking out all of her projects!
If you’re hosting an outdoor dinner party anytime soon, I thought this idea by Susan at Saw Nail & Paint was GENIUS. Grab some empty glass bottles, put in water and a long sprig of rosemary, and top with a white taper candle. How pretty, right? I *love* things like this where you are using what you have, but making it special.
Let’s get to your projects!
But first, just a few things to keep in mind…
