I love a good challenge, and January's Create & Share presented that and more! We were partnered with GraphicStock, an online resource for stock images, and tasked with creating a home decor project using one of their images. I decided that since it was already pushing my creativity, I'd try my hand at something I don't regularly DIY: wall art.
For the December a group of home decor and DIY bloggers teamed up with Cutting Edge Stencils to incorporate their designs into holiday-themed decor. For my project, I created a rustic, elegant stencilled table runner with a birch tree and bird motif!
Pinecones are everywhere! Pick up a few and create a trendy and cheerful holiday centrepiece. With just a little paint and patience, you can create decorations that will last through the holidays and into winter. This project was created for the hop, brought to you by HomeTalk.com and CountryLiving.com!
For the November I put together a Scottish holiday tablescape, honouring not only American but also the Scots holiday St. Andrew's Day! Not only is this perfect for a late-fall feast, but it could easily work as a or winter table. Pour yourself a wee dram and enjoy!
With a minuscule budget and a whole lot of elbow grease, I made over my master bathroom in just six weeks! It started out dark, depressing, and a total throwback to the 80's. Now it's light, bright, and beautiful!
Flourish & Knot encourages readers to make things with their own two hands; to appreciate the process and not only the final product; and to be unafraid of saying “I don’t know how to do that: but I’m going to find out!”
When I’m not DIY-ing (or blogging about DIY-ing), you’ll find me spending time with my husband, teaching music, playing the violin, singing in choirs, cooking, and antiquing.
