Hey there friends! I’m coming at you today with the first DIY project of the year! Yay!! A few days before Thanksgiving I got two new chairs for our family room. When I did it threw everything off. Haha!! Not really but… here’s how things looked at Christmas.
A new year! Each year I’m amazed at how much faster the time passes. I guess maybe that’s part of getting older. 😆 A few months ago one of my favorite instagrammers, Holly from ourfauxfarmhouse, was talking about how she and her hubby sometimes only finish most projects 95%, and I totally relate! So, my #1 goal for 2019 is to move from 95% done to 100% done in every room!
Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? We are about three presents away from being done. Yay! I know, down to the wire, but that’s pretty normal for us. HAHA! Every year I think I’m going to do better and get everything done sooner, but alas, it has yet to happen. Oh well! So, next up is wrapping all the presents. I actually really love wrapping presents! I love being creative and making each package look pretty and unique. I’m sharing some ways you can do that without breaking the bank.
One of my favorite things (out of many) about our new laundry room is the word art that I made with some amazing scrapbook paper.
Today, I’m sharing a tutorial on how-to make them! They are super easy to make and very inexpensive!
It’s time for another Remodelaloholic DIY Challenge!! This time it’s all about Christmas!! The Creative Christmas Challenge has brought together 22 talented bloggers (including myself :)) to share with you their Christmas DIY project!! I’ve been so intrigued by the macrame trend that has re-emerged from years ago. It was the one craft that my mom did that she didn’t pass on to me. Haha. So, after perusing a few tutorials and a couple of videos I decided to give it a try. And, that is what I’m sharing with you today! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and check out all the other inspiration from all the other bloggers!! Also, a lot of them included a video tutorial! There are links to those as well at the end of this post.
