To be honest, I feel as if I rarely give Valentine’s day a second thought so digging through the archives and finding this much to share is a surprise to me but then again, even just 1-2 little things over the course of at least 5+ years does add up. Do you decorate for Valentine’s day? Make Valentines for your little ones or Valentine’s Day gifts for loved ones? 

Personalized Magnetic Artwork Display

 

The Michaels’ Makers’ February challenge has an “express yourself” theme with a campaign called Made by Me, A to Z and it’s all about personalization, showcasing projects that take raw materials and transform them into something that’s completely personalized. The new Make Market line includes materials  from galvanized metal to distressed wood, acrylic, fabric and chalkboard! Something for everyone … or even everything for someone. There’s so crafting goodness to choose from, it’s hard to decide!

personalization challenge #michaelsmakers  

 

I treasure little one’s creations, artwork and photos so I decided to personalize a space in the nursery for displaying his art work and photos. 

magnetic art display #michaelsmakers @diyshowoff

Here’s what I snagged from the Alphabet Soup collection in the Make Market aisle at Michaels:

I personalized a galvanized magnetic memo board with vibrant paint colors to match the nursery decor…

magnetic art display #michaelsmakers @diyshowoff

the magnets are so cute!

And added magnets to the back of F-U-N chalkboard letters for displaying on galvanized chargers/plates. These will work for magnetic play time in the future too.

Cute, colorful, personal and custom to our nursery (future playroom)…

  • My favorite part about crafting is putting a personalized spin on a project. Whether it’s decorating with marquee lights or crafting an initial that represents your family name, Michaels has made it easy with their new Alphabet Soup by Make Market™ line of products. SO MANY DIFFERENT LETTERS! 
  • This collection of surfaces, letters, frames and more come in modern, eclectic or rustic styles. From natural and finished woods, to a variety of metals, resin and patterned styles, the possibilities are endless.
  • If you don’t know where to begin, you can always take a look at some of the fun projects on Michaels.com or the other 49 Makers’ ideas on The Glue String for to see how they personalized their crafts! Visit these fun projects for more inspiration (starting today at 11 a.m. EST):

Personalized Clip Board Gift

Most parties are behind us but I wanted to share this easy DIY hostess gift. Make up a custom and personalized clipboard using these supplies:

easy DIY clipboard gift idea @diyshowoff

• clipboard
FrogTape®
• craft paint and paint brush
• large monogram stickers

I created a simple design using FrogTape. I did a simple diagonal. Get creative!

easy DIY clipboard gift idea @diyshowoff

I burnished the edges of FrogTape where tape will meet paint using a credit card (or my thumbnail) to activate the Paintblock® Technology for crisp clean lines.  easy DIY clipboard gift idea @diyshowoff

Next I applied two coats of paint to the clipboard on the bottom side of the tape.

easy DIY clipboard gift idea @diyshowoff easy DIY clipboard gift idea @diyshowoff

While the second coat of paint was still wet, I carefully removed the FrogTape.

easy DIY clipboard gift idea @diyshowoff  

Then I let the paint dry.

Once paint is dry, add fun monogram stickers to personalize. easy DIY clipboard gift idea @diyshowoff  

Attach a gift card/greeting card for a birthday or a calendar or agenda for a new year’s eve party hostess gift. Make one for yourself to keep important papers organized or search online for free printables to fit the occasion or theme.  easy DIY clipboard gift idea @diyshowoff

Organizing a Craft Closet

Happy New Year, DIY Friends! Kicking off 2016 with a DIY organization challenge! #michaelsmakers diy organization challenge

Every January, I find myself wanting to declutter and get organized around the house. I do have a craft room upstairs that acts more as a storage room because I find that I prefer crafting on the dining room table. I’m more productive when I’m working where things are going on which inspired creating a craft closet in the guest room right off the dining room. 

closet before… DIY craft organization challenge craft closet #michaelsmakers @diyshowoff

I emptied the closet full of forgotten and unworn coats and added some shelves. DIY craft organization challenge craft closet #michaelsmakers @diyshowoff

 

I still want to paint but my favorite part was shopping Michaels newly launched line of storage and organization products called Cre8ted Spaces available in stores now. Tons of different colors, bins and office supplies – with more than 300 new items in 4 coordinating colors. You have to check it out! 

DIY craft organization challenge craft closet #michaelsmakers @diyshowoff

As a part of the Michaels’ Makers January DIY Organizational Challenge, an unused closet makes crafting on our main floor in the dining room with my most used craft supplies for essential oil business and gifts so much easier, making working more enjoyable!

DIY craft organization challenge craft closet #michaelsmakers @diyshowoff

I LOVE the gorgeous color and that there are so many fun different boxes, drawers, baskets and pencil cups to hold and organize my supplies.

Where do you craft? In a designated craft space? The dining room or kitchen table? The living room floor? Do you find yourself digging around an unorganized storage space?Need some more motivation and inspiration to organize your craft space? Take a look at more storage projects on Michaels.com or the other 49 makers’ ideas on The Glue String for tips on designing, organizing and decorating their favorite places starting today at 10 a.m. CST!

Christmas Home Tour

Hello, fellow DIY holiday lovers! I LOVE this time of year! You’d think that my premature head start on having our Christmas tree all decorated before Halloween would mean, it’d be Christmas in every room in our home by now, a huge Christmas extravaganza in the DIYShowOff house because that’s usually how I roll…Christmas in nearly every room. However, the truth is, I’m going with less is more this busy holiday season. 

Birds & Berries

birds and berries Christmas tree #michaelsmakers @diyshowoff Dream Tree Challenge     

Why would I even?! No worries! It’s not that I’m feeling all bah humbug. It’s not that I’ve lost that DIY feeling. I’ve found that I’m prioritizing in other ways this year. I’m enjoying spending time with family, sharing my passion for wellness through essential oils, soaking up all the time with those I love that I can get (we’ve had another cancer diagnosis in our family and it’s beginning to feel like an epidemic…time with family is so precious. It just makes me realize how short our time together is and that it’s never guaranteed). I’m cherishing friendships, celebrating birthdays, taking a breather from projects (it’s our plan to get back to it full force with bathroom and basement/man cave remodels in 2016), getting ready to pack for a relaxing much needed vacation…just keeping busy in ways that reduce stress and put the focus on “life” and giving and loving.

birds and berries Christmas tree #michaelsmakers @diyshowoff Dream Tree Challenge

So this year, it’s ONE tree, not three. This year, it’s a family room all cozy and Christmas with the rest of the house simply clean, healthy and comfortable. This year, it’s more about the spirit of Christmas. About seeing the magic of Christmas through the eyes of a 1 year old, about making Christmas magic for others through actions, help, wellness, love. 

birds and berries Christmas tree #michaelsmakers @diyshowoff Dream Tree Challenge

Don’t get me wrong – I’m certainly enjoying everyone else’s Christmas decorating eye candy from talented blog friends’ Christmas home tours blog hops and the creativity linked to the weekly That DIY Party. Because my pin-finger is getting a work out! And I’m drooling over all that Christmas beauty too! 

birds and berries Christmas tree #michaelsmakers @diyshowoff Dream Tree Challenge

So in the spirit of blogging and all things holiday, to show a little participation on my part, I’ll share a little DIY Christmas past with you today! Here are some of my favorites:
