If I had to pinpoint one aspect of the holidays I loved, it would be the decorating. The lights, colorful bulbs, the smells, and everything else in between! Not that I think my partner would agree, but I would put a tree in every room of my house if I could. So instead of being the tree lot's favorite customer, I decided to make this modern tree hanging to go up in my office.

Feathers became popular a year or two ago, but lately they've been taking over the internet... it seems like every time I scroll down the page on Pinterest there's another feather-inspired piece. So I thought I'd share ten of my favorite feathery finds with all of you!
Artwork can take a room from good to great in a matter of minutes. But, if you're on a tight budget, it's not always a practical investment.

If there is an area of home decor that I need help with, it's cutting photo mats for improperly-sized art and frames. Seriously. My mats look awful. I get so impatient and just kind of "wing it". And it totally shows. Thank heavens someone is showing the rest of us how to do it right!
We've all seen a DIY marquee sign or two, over the years, but a giant one made of metal (not cardboard)? Those are harder to come by. Which is why, when I saw this step by step marquee tutorial for a giant aluminum version, I thought it was worth taking note. Want to make your own? Continue Reading
I rent. While our end goal is to be in a house of our own, the timing isn't right at the moment. So we have to make our rented space feel likes it's ours. I'm sure you've been there! Maybe you're there right now? Let's all get together and make these pretty pretty triangle wall shelves for our empty walls! Continue Reading
Has dip-dying overstayed its welcome? Yes, according to Elle Decor. They say its meteoric rise in popularity has put it firmly on the 'cliche' list. If you DO want to do the dip, they suggest keeping the subjects small, like bowls and wooden spoons. (Although they laud the project pictured above as having been 'done properly.')
