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.
I absolutely love that the little outfits my mom and I make for George can be displayed like little pieces of artwork on the clothing rack next to the bookshelf.
My biggest splurge in the space was this upholstered rocker. I love this chair! Instead of buying the matching ottoman, my mom made me a floor cushion using a fabulous tutorial by Susan at Living with Punks (linked in the resources below).
I have had so many of you ask about these little brass owls! These belonged to my husband’s grandmother, and I was so happy to be able to include them here.
George has no blanket cozier than this faux chenille blanket made especially for him by Mammo Reita.
This gorgeous sketch was done by a dear friend of my parents’. It is entitled “The Gift.” Isn’t it wonderful?
The antique dresser I refinished for the space doubles as a changing table. George loves to stare up at the mobile hanging above it!
I made this little name banner and the garland on the shelf below the framed chalkboard using my rosette dies from Lifestyle Crafts.
The gallery wall next to the dresser is a work in progress. I plan to add the cross-stitch birth announcement sampler my mom is making for him, as well as new photos, in the future.
I just love the lantern and tissue paper pom pom mobile and the zebra rug! (See below for resources.)
One final look of the entire space on our way out…
