Craft Room Makeover: From Disaster To DIY-er's Dream

Check out these amazing before and after shots

by: Sarah Gunn

Our basement storage room was a winning contender for an episode of Hoarders. Seriously. I had to climb over boxes and bins to get to my craft supplies. I redid the rest of the basement in the spring, so I decided to tackle this neglected corner of our house over the Christmas holiday. 

Here is what it looked like before . . . okay, if I'm honest, here is what it looked like before, after I cleaned it for about two hours:

Dreaming Big For 2012

Posts I Dream of Writing

by: Sarah Gunn

As I said in a similar post in January, I am not a fan on New Year's Resolutions. I am, however, a big dreamer. And I think there is something to be said for putting your dreams out there. So, here is my dreamy wish list for posts I'd like to write in 2012.

- I wrote this one last year but it is yet to happen, so, again, I dream of observing the styling and photographing of a Style At Home magazine shoot.

Holiday Gift Wrapping Ideas

Three Ways to Get Crafty with Brown Paper Packages

by: Sarah Gunn

Wrapping presents is one of my favourite things to do this time of year. I love the patterns of paper, the ribbons and the bows. This year, though, I wanted to get a little crafty with my Christmas wrapping so I challenged myself to come up with three different ways to use brown paper.

I discovered that brown paper packages don't just have to be tied up with string, they can be decorated with most anything. {Yes, The Sound of Music is my favourite movie of all time}

This year, at least in Toronto, a white Christmas is just a dream.

Holiday Decor Ideas for Kids

Create An Interactive Holiday Space

by: Sarah Gunn

I love the idea of creating a cute and fun table for children at family holiday dinners. There are a few things to keep in mind when designing a table for kids. I recently shared my tips for creating fun and interactive table décor on Cityline.

I think choosing a theme is a great starting point. I went with a Frosty the Snowman theme because it appeals to children of all ages.

DIWhy I Should Maybe Never Vlog Again

DIY Felt Art Project

by: Sarah Gunn

I tried to vlog a DIY art project and it pretty much sucked. In a major way. So….instead of making a how-to video, I made more of a how-not-to video. Outtakes anyone? {feel free to scroll down to see the real how-to under the video…..blogged not vlogged}

Turns out life isn't a fairytale and she's not exactly living in a castle. In fact, her house is in constant need of design intervention. Little things like children, exhaustion and budgets get in the way.

But this story does have a happy ending: years of experience watching decorating shows and clipping ideas from her favourite design magazines have equipped Sarah with the mad decorating skills she needs to turn anyone's house into the home of their dreams with great tips, tricks and inspiration. 

Join Sarah each week as she shares DIY projects, inspiration and her favourite new décor finds...all on a budget every mummy will love.

Sarah has recently had a dream of a lifetime come true: she now shares her mad DIY skills on the popular show, CityLine. She is also now designing spaces for children. If this is all a dream, then please don't wake her up.
