The first focused on inspiration, the second on what I look at when designing a room and the third focused on making it feasible financially.

The Annual Serar Family Christmas Party was this weekend and I finished up the last of my ornament projects just in time.

On one of my normal trips to one of my routine weekly stops, I spotted this adorable twine snowman all decked out and ready for Christmas. The store’s merchandiser, who happens to know me well, said, “you should make it instead of buying it.” She knows… Continue reading
