Hey Y’all!

Welcome to The Prickly Pear Gypsy! The Prickly Pear Gypsy is all about DIY projects and smiles. It is here, in this very small corner tucked away on the world wide web, that we share our weekly antic. We’re glad you stopped by. Take a load off and relax a while, make yourself at home and take a looksie.



From what started as an acquaintanceย in passing and budding into a wonderful friendship the two of us have taken this sweet life we live by storm. We met when both of these small town girls uprooted and moved across the Pacific to the little island of Okinawa, Japan. Forced (but willing) to move with our husbands in the Marine Corps we have been so grateful to have found one another. We fed off ofย one another’s creativity and here we are… The {Prickly Pear Gypsy}

Hello everyone!! Since I was a little girl I have had a passion for everything crafty and design related. My mema, mom, and her best friend were my inspirations. The three silly ladies always moving or creating things and as I got older they let me participate. I went on to get a degree in Interior Design (which I will defend and set people straight about what that really means) and become a Designer. Our wedding and move to Japan have really reminded me where my passion is and I am so excited to be able to share it!

If you could throw any kind of party, what kind of party and what would it be for? A 1920โ€™s inspired souiree for absolutely no reason, but to see my favorite people.

Guilty Pleasure- Horrible, trashy television and a good romance novel

Meet Beth:

about page

Hello friends! My name is Beth and I’m from Texas. How does one know if someone is from Texas you ask?…don’t worry they will tell ya ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have a passion for creativity and bargains. I grew up with the most wonderful mother who let me run wild with this and taught me well… from garage sales to resale shops we were constantly making, re-doing, rearranging. My poor pops, every time he would come home from a business trip the house was different. We liked it that way. That is how it started and then I went on the art school in college. Here I am today living the dream. Please don’t pinch me, I don’t want to wake up.

Favorite Song- “She’s Like Texas” by Josh Abbott Band

If you could throw any kind of party, what kind of party and what would it be for? I’ve always wanted to throw some sort of classy black tie soirรฉe complete with horribly expensive champagne and decadent food. I would want it to be for a gallery opening or art exhibit (becauseย I am an art nerd at heart and proud of it).

Guilty Pleasure- Trashy romance novels, bananas smothered in hot peanut butter, and binge watching YouTube beauty gurus telling me how to do my makeup Carli Bybel, Nicole Guerriero, and Jaclynย Hill is where its at! Follow the links and check them out!

Favorite Book- 1984 By George Orwell

Celebrity Crush- that’s tough… a neck and neck tie between Matt Damon and Mark Whalberg
