Tell us a bit about your home and what you love about it the most?
Our house is deceptively big! It looks quite small from the front but its really long, which means we have lots of space!
I share it with my partner and two housemates so its a bit of a mish-mash of different peoples belongings. My favourite thing in our house is our white brick fireplace and mantle. The fireplace has been decommissioned but I love decorating it with garlands and different pieces of art throughout the year!
What was the first DIY project you did to your home or first thing you made for it?
The first thing I made for our home was
Do you have any tips for staying tidy & organised?
You know those clear plastic boxes you can buy in hardware stores? The ones that are usually used for storing nails and screw? Those things are amazing for storage! I keep everything in them!
My jewellery in particular - all of my nicest pieces stay in my proper jewellery box, but all my costume jewellery and cheaper pieces live in those plastic boxes. Its the best because you can keep them untangled and you can see exactly what you own at a glance, without having to dig through a mess of chains and missing earrings.
If you could tour any celebrities home, who would it be?
Probably someone like Amy Pohler. She is such a fun and interesting person who has done so many incredible things in her life. I feel like she would have so many mementos from places like SNL and the set of Parks & Recreation, I would love to see how she incorporates them into her home decorating.
If you had three wishes, what changes would you make to your home?
My main wish would be to own my home; as a renter I'm not allowed to do things like put holes or nails in walls, which can be a little frustrating when you get a really good DIY idea!
My other wish would be for larger windows so that I can get more natural light in our house. Some rooms can be so gloomy at certain parts of the day.
Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?
My blog is my main hobby. Most of my free time goes to coming up with new craft and recipe projects to share. Having my blog gives me a real reason to keep myself motivated outside of work hours and also gives me a creative outlet for when life gets too serious.
