Call me weird, but I just love planning room makeovers. It’s so fun to pick out and envision different paint colors, furniture, decorations, and accessories. I’ve always planned my rooms with an idea in my head of what I want the finished product to look like. But I’ve found actually sketching it out and putting it on paper or computer screen is a much better way to get a visual idea of how all of the different elements will work together beforehand. Plus, then you can tweak and make adjustments before beginning any work and spending any money or committing to anything.
So, I have a little home decorating secret to share with you. Don’t tell anyone, but I have the exact same wreath hanging on my front door all year. How boring, right? Not really! I’ve found with a little creativity and crafting, I’m able to change out the accessories and make it look completely different for every holiday and season. In fact, nobody can even tell it’s the same wreath!
Have you ever been invited into someone’s house and instantly felt welcomed and relaxed? It’s doesn’t even have to be someone you know very well, but you still feel right at home in their house. There’s actually a reason for that, and it doesn’t have as much to do with the design and style as it does with creating an inviting atmosphere where guests feel welcomed and at home.
Can you imagine living in a world where you you have plenty of time to craft, you actually finish all of your projects, and your craft supplies are always nicely organized? I know, it sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? But actually, these things are all possible, even for those who prefer to craft spontaneously! It all comes down to creating healthy crafting habits!
If there’s one piece of seasonal decor that I love to display in my house year-round, it’s a wreath. I feel that a beautiful wreath adds the perfect touch of seasonal cheer to the home and makes the home feel inviting and welcoming. But I really don’t have the desire or space to store a different wreath for every holiday and season. Really, who does? So I’ve developed a way that allows me to hang a different holiday wreath without worrying about storing or buying a new wreath form.

I’m in the middle of creating a wonderfully creative work space. Part of that project involves jazzing up my bulletin board (because who wants to look at a boring bulletin board all day?), and the other part includes creating a motivational quote or two for the wall. Who doesn’t love a good motivational quote?
