Having grown up in a home brimming with sewing notions and paintbrushes, Amy has a deep love for all things creative. On any given day, you’ll find her knee-deep in her latest creative endeavor, with projects ranging from sewing and crafts to home decor and kid-friendly ideas. Amy believes that everyone, regardless of skill level or experience, possesses the ability to create something beautiful, and Positively Splendid was born of her passion for helping others harness their innate creative potential.
My name is Amy, and my blogging home is known as Positively Splendid, a place where I share about my passion for all things creative. As a wife and mother of three (with our fourth due in the fall), I find pursuing creative endeavors to be the thing that preserves my own unique identity. I love taking ordinary ingredients and transforming them into something lovely!
My goal is for my blog to be a little haven of crafting and DIY inspiration, and a place where creative people of all skill levels can come and feel right at home. Because I feel strongly that everyone should be equipped to create something beautiful on their own, each and every project at Positively Splendid is explained to the last detail with step-by-step photo tutorials. I like to think of each tutorial as sitting down with friends to learn something new together! I would love for you to stop in for a visit.
I am so tickled to have the opportunity to share a few of my favorite projects at Lauren’s place today. Her place is always brimming with terrific ideas!
Needing something to spruce up an indoor or outdoor living space? My Mod Peacock Pillow makes a stylish statement!
Decorating projects that mimic the looks I see in my favorite catalogs for a fraction of the price are some of my personal favorites. Recently, I shared a post for how to create these Pottery Barn Kids-inspired cable art systems to display my kiddos’ artistic creations.
Another thing I love? Turning something that might otherwise be discarded into something useful and attractive. I did just that when I created these Upcycled Diaper Box Lined Canvas Bins. This is truly one of my all-time favorite projects!
If you plan to spend time outdoors with your family this summer, chances are you’ll be dealing with pesky mosquitoes. Try putting together a batch of my Homemade Citronella Candles to keep them at bay!
