My Favorite Spot

March 23, 2010

I am a firm believer that your home should be filled with love and feelings of comfort and ease. I have been unfortunate enough to live in places where this wasn’t the case. My previous house was cold and I always felt uncomfortable and frustrated. It was also orevcluttered and disorganized. It didn’t instill a sense of peace in me.

So when I finally moved to this new house, I decided to make sure I could foster a sense of belonging. This wasn’t about home decorating or style. My main goal was to truly feel at home in my house. And while I still have a long way to go, one of my favorite spots in my home is my little craft area which I have filled with pieces of art that I love. Like this one from Rebecca Sower.

And this one from Kelly Rae Roberts.

And this piece from Liese Martin.

I love each of these pieces of art and they inspire me in their own unique ways. Sometimes I look up at my walls just to stare at the art and let it give my soul a little jump.

I’ve also filled the space with things that are meaningful to me in other ways. Like this nest I just bought from Saffron and Genevieve. I have always been a fan of nests and have a much bigger one in my living room but this little one brings me a piece of nature right here on my table. And I love that it has a single egg in it, too.

I also love putting meaningful messages on my desk. Things that encourage me and make me smile.

Reminders that I need every now and then.

My craft table is in the corner of our living area. It’s not that large but it’s my favorite spot in our house. It’s filled with my personality. It immediately inspires me and makes me feel peaceful.

I hope you have a spot like that in your home, too. If you do, I would love it if you shared it with us. If you don’t maybe today’s a good day to pick one and put one thing you love there. Maybe it’s just a piece of paper with a quote you cherish. It can start small. Anything works as long as it feels like “you.”


Ps: I know several of you have been having problems with the templates. I hope to have a video on how to color and use them next week. Apologies for making you wait.
