New Upcycle Ideas 652


Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific

This week’s upcycled party will be a clear indication of the crossover transpiring between fall and Christmas seasons right now. Which I LOVE! In the DIY world, both apply this time of year so you have plenty of time to either plan for the biggest celebration of the year, or dig in your heels a little longer to fully embrace the true coziness only fall can deliver.

I’m personally embracing Christmas decor in a slightly different way. Downstairs are sketches, samples and drawings galore covering my computer screen and desk with all new Christmas stencil designs to be released very soon! It’s quite a process, but there’s a few brand new ideas I’ve yet to see available as stencils, so I’m only too happy to offer up something completely and uniquely rustically new!

Intrigued? Be sure to sign up for the newsletter HERE so you can be one of the first to be alerted once they’re up and running!

So excuse me while I go bury myself down there hopefully one more day so they can get listed soon and get belting out fun, new projects with them! Here’s a few hints… a charming village, rustic wood, a cozy yet simple pattern and frosty snowstorms…

Until then, here’s how you can get ahead of the festive season yourself, by checking out some fall and Christmas projects from last week’s party…
