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.
Hello, everyone! I am absolutely tickled to be swapping with Stacy today. Her blog is so full of inspirational projects!
My name is Amy, and my corner of the blogging world is know as Positively Splendid, a place where you’ll find me sharing about my passions for crafting, sewing, cooking, decorating and raising a family – and just about everything in between! Having three children in stair-step fashion has prompted me to have a true passion for just about all things domestic, and my blog is a chronicle of my quest to create an inviting environment in which our love for one another can grow and flourish. I would love to have y’all stop in for a visit!
I absolutely adore turning ordinary objects into something beautiful, which is exactly what I did recently with a set of three ordinary diaper boxes.
Curious to see how I did it? Head here for the full tutorial!
In a refashioning project of the wearable variety, I recently turned a plain-Jane tee into a fun little bolero! You can find the tutorial for how I did it here.
Having three children five and under makes coming up with projects that are easy to put together in a limited amount of time and on a tight budget a must for me. I recently started a series called Creating in a Crunch that is dedicated to these types of projects: quick, easy and inexpensive ways to get your creative fix. I shared a how-to for Sliding Door Valentines as the first installment in the series. These would be a great last-minute card to put together if you’re still needing Valentine’s Day ideas!
If you’re already yearning like I am for planting spring flowers, you should earmark the tutorial for my Tiered Terracotta Planter. This is such a dynamic, yet simple, project!
But in the meantime of waiting on the warm weather to arrive, keep your kiddos occupied during snow days by making some of these adorable Bubble Wrap Crocodiles. They are sure to be a hit!
Thanks so much, Stacy, for having me over today! It has been a pleasure!
