April is coming to a close already - I can hardly believe it. April is a big deal in my house because my husband is a tax accountant - if you're American, you probably know that April 15th is tax day. The 2 weeks leading up to it are hectic for him and for me - when he works 70 hour weeks, that means I put in just as many hours as the main parent at home. That resulted in a slower month here on She Makes a Home, but I really loved the projects we took on this month - here are April's posts in case you missed any:
- In early April I talked about the power of acknowledging your dreams
- Next I shared my inspiration for a moon and stars-themed baby shower, as well as my lemon buttercream frosting recipe to go with it
- I talked about progress in my mission for continued education - I learned how to digitize calligraphy
- Just last week I shared my new recipe for a homemade facial bar / acne cleanser
- And finally, my favorite new DIY: peppermint & vanilla air freshening spray
Of course, none of this would be possible without the support of April's amazing sponsors. I take great care to work with small, independent, and fiercely inspiring businesses on this blog. A BIG thank you goes out to:
Cloudpearls - elegant everyday jewelry, handmade in Sweden
Pictured above and below, Cloudpearls is run by Elsa who sculpts each and every bead so that each piece is unique. I personally love the bright, colorful necklaces - they say, "Spring!" to me. Elsa is offering 10% off orders with the coupon code LOVE10 at checkout! Which piece is your favorite?
KreativCase - personalized iPhone, Samsung, and Blackberry cases
I am thrilled to be working with Cindy of KreativCase again - you may remember her interview from Snowed In Magazine over the holidays. Cindy is a creative powerhouse over at KreativCase - some of the most popular cases are the wedding-themed designs for brides or the newly engaged. I'm a fan of her geometrically-patterned cases myself. Right now, KreativCase is offering a spring special - buy 2 cases, get 30% off! Just use code SPRING at checkout.

Do you like to make your own jewelry? I'm excited to be working with Laura at A Bit of Stone Beads.
