Getting crafty

For the longest time now, I have been taking in inspiration from others through the internet.  I even dedicated a whole post to this topic a while back.

Most of the blogs I follow have an element of crafty design or decoration to them, and most of these bloggers make their own everything. I mean, from beautiful food to arts & crafts, to repurposing old items around the house, to turning garage sale junk into very cool decorations…the list goes on.  I specially enjoy seeing all those before and after pictures, and can only imagine the sense of accomplishment!

In light of all this, I think it’s time to get my own hands dirty.  It’s time to see if I actually learned anything from seeing and reading all about these do-it-yourself projects.  Could I, by myself, potentially turn old unwanted items into brand new beautiful objects?  Could I really tackle an upholstery project all on my own?  Am I capable of spray-painting my way into a prettier-looking home?

Well, my friends,  it’s time to find out! Over the course of the next few weeks I will be tackling a few projects of my own around the house, and I can’t wait to tell you all about them. Please keep your fingers crossed for me that this story will have a happy ending! xo
