It’s December all!!! I made it through November, and wanted to check in a let you know a little about why it’s been quiet around here. First, I finished up a huge project, but I’m going to have to keep the details secret still, but the other big change is that we moved out of I SPY DIY Studio this month #sadface. I LOVED the studio, but unfortunately it was not ideal for a lot of shoots we wanted to do. First, it does not have a kitchen, limiting the entertaining/cooking/baking projects. Also, a lot of you may have noticed I am doing more home decor projects, and I wanted a more homey set up. I went back through my posts and looked at some of my favorite/your favorite ones and the most popular were shot at my apartment…soooo I’ve moved out of my apartment, and moved the studio there. Lastly, I want a space that was a little more secure, I work a lot of late hours, and safety is super important, so wanted a place I felt totally comfortable being after hours. I am still unpacking all the new spaces (ugh, moving multiple places at once sucks!) but ultimately am super happy with the change up.  It felt so good to declutter and donate all our craft supplies to the local schools. And part of the fun of my job is getting into new spaces and designing them! As a little farewell to the studio, I wanted to put together a tour including some of the projects/sets ups we did there.

MY DIY | Wooden Holiday Trees

DIY PROJECT, Holiday DIY

It’s time to start decorating for the holidays! This year I want to go super modern and sleek with my decorations. I saw a display of wooden triangle trees last year and wanted to create that same look for my apartment, and accent it with some fun holiday decor.  I used a couple kinds of wood: precut “V’s” from the craft store, triangles I cut with my miter saw, and I repurposed the triangle shelves I made last year. With a quick spray of Krylon® SUPERMAXXX® All-In-One Metallic Finish in Silver and COVERMAXX® in Matte White and Metallic Gold, I had a super chic forest with metallic accents!  Also a little bonus: Use as a jewelry holder when giving a gift or a display for your own jewelry after the holidays!  (more…)
