Blog - Getting the Perfect Gift for Your Parents

The holidays are quickly approaching and, if you’re anything like me, you have a really hard time figuring out what to get for people. I find that the longer I have known somebody, the harder it is to find something that shows how much you value who they are as a person and how much you appreciate your relationship.

Parents. I’ve known them my whole life, so why is it so hard to find something for them? Dads are the number one hardest demographic to shop for, in my opinion. I try not to repeat gifts, which has resulted in me actually making presents for the last year or so. It is hard to find the time to create these items. I can’t speak for everyone with a dad, but based on my dad’s interests and our location, I have narrowed down a few items that I think he might like.

Blog - Cody's Movember Favorites - Gifts for the Men in Your Life

Black Friday starts before Halloween and Christmas trees hit the shelves in September, which means by now you’ve been inundated with countless promos and countless gift giving options.

Blog - Practice What You Pin - DIY

While searching for the next Practice What You Pin project, I realized that though I am not artistically inclined, I do enjoy making things, which led me to a DIY chandelier of sorts. For those in a rental living situation, this is a perfect solution to cover up ugly or boring apartment flush mounts.

I went to Hobby Lobby, walked around for about 45 minutes - there is just so much stuff! - before finally obtaining the FOUR things I went there for.

Blog - Practice What You Pin: DIY Lampshade

Practice What You Pin. As part of this ideology, LampsUSA will be handcrafting DIY lampshades, DIY table lamps, and other DIY lamps.

LampsUSA is a company that is highly active in the Pinterest community. The whole staff loves seeing the innovative and creative lighting ideas/concepts conjured up all over the world. 

In a sort of arts and crafts alchemy, Pinterest users have brought to light great repurposing, hacking, and reshaping ideas that have transformed the way the LampsUSA creative team thinks about the company’s products.

The spirit of DIY lamps and DIY lampshades is especially cool.

Blog - Are these the Finest Wood Lamp Finials Ever Made?

America's best wood lamp finials are handcrafted by Picinae Studios because they specialize in creating infinite design possibilities using the natural characteristics of wood. Their designs highlight the natural beauty of wood, and create an artistic appeal that complements other fine surroundings. Each piece that’s made is numbered and signed, giving it its own identity with its own unique wood color and grains. They are cut free-hand, and highly polished to add depth, clarity and tactile quality.

The woods are selected for their color, grain and natural properties like durability, malleability, hardness and weight. Most of the woods come from local mills in North America, like Maple, Cherry and Black Walnut. Other woods used are Bocote, Morado, Ebonies and Cocobolo.
