“Progress, and improve upon and make beautiful everything around you. Cultivate the earth, and cultivate your minds. Build cities, adorn your habitations, make gardens, orchards, and vineyards, and render the earth so pleasant that when you look upon your labors you may do so with pleasure, and that angels may delight to come and visit your beautiful locations. In the mean time continually seek to adorn your minds with all the graces of the Spirit of Christ.”
My home is a handmade home. I love creating items with my own two hands that become decor in my home. Garlands, wreaths, paper flags, painted wooden decor, basically anything that I think I can create, I want to create. I love working with yarn and fabric, paper and paint. I love getting my hands dirty.
I love creating something that stays for days, months, years. That doesn’t get eaten up or messed up, that can last for a very long time. I love being inspired by so many of you that are creating handmade items in your own homes. I absolutely love sharing my creations with others and inspiring others to create handmade items for their own homes.
Handmade items add coziness, style, and personality to your homes like nothing else can. They are the statement pieces that others ask about. You can make your home feel the way that you want it to, even if you can’t find or afford the latest store bought or thrifted finds, you can always make them. Embrace handmade in your home. Let go of the inner critic and just sit down and make something. Start simple, learn as you go, be willing to make mistakes, create with a friend, and don’t be afraid to display your creations. As the quote says above, progress, and improve upon and make beautiful everything around you.
