With Christmas on the horizon, pennies are definitely tight for everyone. Even though we know it comes on the same day every year, it’s still a big expense! I think it’s impossible to properly budget for Christmas because you just don’t know what’s going to pop up and need paying for. That being said, DIY gifts are a great way to cut costs over the festive period. They’re also fun to make and will definitely make your friends and family smile.
The rustic trend has been around for a while now and still continues to be as popular as ever. This is primarily due to its strong emphasis on recycling materials.

So if you’re interested in creating a rustic vibe in your own home, don’t be tempted to buy everything from a store. Here are some fabulous home decor projects that can help you create a rustic theme almost instantly.
I love DIY wedding projects, and I’m always excited to see how couples get creative for their big day. I am aware, though, that not every bride (or groom) has a lot of skill in the craft department.

There are plenty of ways to get crafty and cut out the middle man from several parts of your wedding without having any artistic skill. Here are some ways you can do it.
There could have a lot of DIY ideas and projects you will have outstanding. It always seems like there’s something that needs to be sorted out, especially in my house.

This is the little place that is going to be keeping up so busy for the next few weeks, perhaps months! It’s a lovely little terrace but it needs some serious TLC. We’re talking full on paint job and a lot of filler. So I’m hoping to do a few before, during and after photos for a little interiors series! Here’s a pic heavy post of the damage that needs repairing, ha! But we hope to have it up and running really soon and turn it into our beautiful first home.
