I figured there is one thing what almost every crafter here has in common... a home. Be it a mansion, apartment, house or shack (a game of MASH anyone?) we all have a roof over our heads at least some of the time.
I personally moved into a house my man meat bought about 2 months ago so I have tons of rooms that are calling my name to make pretty and perfect.
One year of decorating seems feasible to me...
If you want to join just start posting
Post projects, questions and ideas for everyone to see!
Time to start off with a clean slate. You need room to work on your plans and crafts for the next 12 months of decorating and beyond. This month is extended to give a little extra time to get one of a crafters most prized and crazed locations under control. Post your ingenious ways of curbing clutter, keeping everything organized and ideas on helping to keep (in)sanity going.
Living and Loving Your Living/TV Room
November is the start of the american holiday seasons. With family gatherings and NFL games what better place to sit and relax and drone out to a good game or holiday movie then in your own living room?!?! Post the perfect wall color or how you hid the hubbys gaming systems! Or even post your holiday decorations for the room everyone seems to gravitate to!
Hot Hot Kitchens
If you can stand the heat start the decorating! Post thru the month of December your kitschy kitchens, vintage diners and country cooks stations. With the holidays comes baking and holiday meals (along with holiday pounds!). They say that the kitchen is the heart of any home. In fact the ancient Romans and Greeks held great honor for Vesta the goddess of the hearth (where families cooked their meals and gathered around). Weither its as simple a post as showing your new embrodered towels or you rip everything out and start from scratch we wanna see what style you like to serve your family in.
People spend 1/3 of their life sleeping. After a hard day or a lazy weekend everyone needs their bed. I know that one of my fav places to curl up and read a book is in the comfy chair my boy toy got me just for my room. A bedrooms color can either wake you up with a punch of color in the morning or relax you when you really need it. Comfy comforters, plush pillows, or even dorky duvets. Show your bed chamber through to the end of this month.
What Happens in the Bathroom...
Sometimes doesn't stay in the bathroom. Bathrooms are like opinions, everyone has one. Heck even the Queen of England has to use one
. It seems the one place every designer or budding designer can let loose and find something good. Some people love having spas some love sleek and contemporary. Give a glimpse of your water closet this month!
Game Rooms/ Bar Rooms/ Home Theaters
Party Party Party. Not everyone might have on of these places to kick back and enjoy a few drinks or games especially with such tight purse strings nowadays. If you do or if you want to build one post your projects this month. We might even get some ideas on how to lower the costs!!!
Another one where not everyone might have a project to post this month. Post your favorite space saving projects for your little ones or expecting mommies and daddies can post their wall murals. Kids bedrooms can be more creative then anyother room in the house. Themes or no themes, from the smallest toys to the largest playroom project show us during this month!
Front-Back Yards/ BBQs/Pools
Spring and summer are the times to relax outside around the grill or planting in the garden. Post any topic from building a patio all the way to gardening tips and projects. Show off your front yards and pool decks that would make any neighbor jealous during the hot summer days.
Even if they aren't so much as man caves or (wo)man caves there has to be a place where your significant other can hide from your crafting crazes. Have a storage problem and plan on cleaning and setting up a cool garage system? Show off the places where the others in your home can get creative through this month.
Home safety/Organization/ Preparations
We need to focus on the safety and preparedness of the members of your home and community. Did you set up an evacuation box or installed safety messures for your children? Is the organization system you use mind blowning? Show it off! Heck even show off your canning from your summer harvest!
Entry Ways and Everything Else
Now as we get towards wrapping up our year its time to get all those little nooks and cranies and places we haven't gotten to yet. I'm sure there is one or two small places you need to get to still. Maybe cleaning your basement or some closets somewhere are calling your name. You name it... POST IT!!!
Year End Recap
A full year has come and by this time you should have a fully decorated house. As we wrap up these 12 months I'll post some of our favs so just send me a pm of what you think should be on the list!
Send me a PM if you have any questions or concerns.
OTHER THEN THAT GET POSTING!!!!!
