About

Finding Silver Linings is a lighthearted lifestyle blog about all things creative.  Recipes, do-it-yourself projects, crafts, beauty tips and occasional cocktails.

Launched in 2010, FSL was a journal-style blog about being a newlywed and first-time homeowner (and all the crazy things that go along with it).   It has become a hub for crafty-types that enjoy simple do-it-yourself projects and delicious bites.

If you’re new around here, check out the projects page and the recipe page to see if anything piques your interest!
