Spring Decorating with DecoCrated

Add some spring touches to your decor with a Spring 2019 subscription box from DecoCrated! That’s exactly what I did when I recently finished up my spring cleaning. Well, at least the main floor of our home is clean and organized. Upstairs is another story.  haha! 2nd floor, 2nd story, another story. See what I did there? Get it? I know. I’m so weird.

Anyway, so…DecoCrated.com. With the exception of my monthly Young Living order, I am not usually a fan of subscription boxes. I find that usually they’re filled with sample items that I wouldn’t choose for myself (skin care with questionable ingredients, jewelry that isn’t my style, etc.). Know what I mean? The surprise part is happy, the contents … eh.

However, when it comes to decorative accents, count me in! I’m all about adding a few new pieces to freshen things up and I know you’ll fall in love with this subscription box too. Because if there’s something in there that you don’t care for, simply tuck it away in your “gifting” closet/box for a friend’s birthday or pay it forward and brighten someone’s day ‘just because’. But, my decor-loving buddies, I think you’re going to enjoy sprinkling some new spring accents around your home, adding a couple of key spring touches or swapping out something old for something new. 

decocrated spring pillows

It’s like treasure in the mail, a Christmas gift curated for your home each season, you guys! I love that! Imagine having a fun box filled with beautiful decorative home accents every quarter! You don’t have to ‘imagine’. Spoil yourself and make it happen.

Because I’m a nerd and really value getting the biggest bang for my buck, I mentally added up the items as I unboxed. Break it down. Each month when you walk into TJMaxx or Target or your favorite store or do some ‘window shopping’ online, how much is the cost of what’s in your cart for decorating? If you’re like me, it’s definitely more than $23.33 a month for an item or two. This Spring 2019 DecoCrated subscription box came with 9 items + a free gift (10!) so that’s approximately less than $7 for each piece of home decor when you use the code “DIY10” to get $10 off your subscription (did I mention free shipping?). SCORE! 

I created an unboxing video with all the details: 

After the video, I crated it all back up and popped over to the #helloredreno studio to refresh the decor. Take a look!

Eclectic Sun Room Makeover

Featured

This little room at the back of our house has gone through several transformations. We mostly call it the mud room but it’s more of a sun room, reading nook, sitting room, overflow from the dining room when entertaining (more seating)… a quite space off the dining room with French doors leading to the back patio.

Boho Sunroom Makeover

Well, the sun room got an unplanned makeover when we used some leftover paint from the man cave paint job. And it gave me a chance to turn Spring cleaning into something so rewarding – a room makeover with a zero budget by shopping the house. But first, let’s take a trip down memory lane for this little room…

When we bought our house, it had a single door and blue indoor/outdoor carpeting. Right away we added French doors, slate tile and a fresh coat of paint. 


It’s one of my grown up “doll house” rooms. I’m always changing it up in there by shopping the house for furniture and accessories. The HUGE mirror was frameless and above the fireplace in our living room when we bought our house. We moved it to this room to give the illusion of more space and light, added a frame and a vinyl monogram.

Do you move furniture and decorative accessories around from room to room to freshen things up or do you call it permanently perfect and enjoy things as is for years?

There was even a brief stint as a breakfast nook.

thrifty sitting room

I love an eclectic vibe of the collected decor…can you tell?

This DIY half globe light fixture cover is one of my favorite projects:

And these DIY no-sew script curtains. They didn’t go back up this time but I’ll be finding somewhere else in our home to use them. Do you have decorative accessories that you hang onto because you’re just so in love?

DIY script drop cloth drapes

Remember when I had these vintage teacher desks in the kitchen too? Again, always rearranging. It’s just such a joy! Motivation to clean, something new without spending. I’m addicted. 

Holiday decorating too!

Okay, already! I took these beautiful Sauder chairs from our reading nook reading nook @diyshowoff @SauderUSA #puttogether

Let’s see the latest look, shall we? Finally, right? I am in love with the happy and bright atmosphere with the dark moody wall color! The collected decor from shopping around the house gives it an eclectic boho feel!

And all that’s new in this room is the wall paint (which was actually leftover, so again, zero dollars spent! Gotta love that!). Wall color: Carbon Copy (Behr)

Birthday Bash

Hi DIYShowOff friends! Oh dear blog friends, I’m so blessed by your friendship and so happy you’re here. Thank you for your encouragement and support! 

Birthday Bash:

I love that you’re here. Our mutual interest in DIY has brought us together and I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you on a more personal level. I love our collaborations, our stories of putting so much love, so much of ourselves into creating  a beautiful home.

unicorn essential oils make and take

If you know me by now, you know that not only do I love being creative and crafty with DIY projects, I’m passionate about wellness and a chemical free home so as I celebrate my last year before hitting a big birthday milestone in 2020, I wanted to share some fun birthday incentives with my favorite blog friends. 

Savvy Minerals make up

Giving back: 

It’s my birthday month! My birthday wish is to give back in a big way. That’s the plan! For March, when you purchase a Premium Starter Kit using enroller/sponsor #1836762 at YoungLiving.com, I’ll be donating 25% to providing product gifts for some special recipients! I’d love to gift the Thieves Disinfecting (non toxic) Spray to cancer patients in our area! Thieves is SO amazing and smells good too!

Thieves spray

6 (SIX!!!!) close family members diagnosed with cancer in the past 6 years! That’s 6 too many! Sharing about chemical free products, essential oils with no side effects and making healthier choices may only be a super small imprint on those I love, their families and the world – but it’s one positive step in the right direction!

I appreciate your shares and referrals too! Thank you so much for helping me!

Gift of Wellness: 

Think oils aren’t for you because you’re not a hippie? Not crunchy? Or that there’s no way they can actually work like the “crazy oil people” say they can? See, that’s where you’ve got it wrong. Sooooo wrong. All you need is an open mind and a willingness to try.

It’s my goal for every one of my friends and family to have essential oils in their home so they have options to live above the wellness line and non toxic choices for aches and pains, immune system support along with support for other body systems too – you need these oils in your life!

diyshowoff

You guys! It’s not about sales! I don’t care where you get your Young Living products from – reach out to your closest bestie who loves the Young Living lifestyle, link arms and get off the fence! But if you don’t have someone close to you, geographic location is of little importance in today’s world with connection at our fingertips! I’d be honored if you chose me as your enroller/sponsor. I’m so super passionate about sharing wellness, purpose and abundance. Who you join under does make a difference and we have a rockstar community for support and education ready and waiting for you (you might even recognize blog friends that you know!) so that you’re not all alone wondering how or why to use essential oils in addition to lots of education, resources, fun, incentives, giveaways and so much love and support! We’re a close-knit group who values friendship. 

Premium Starter Kit

^^^ THIS Premium Starter Kit is the BOMB! 12 essential oils and the Desert Mist Diffuser!!! It’s beautiful, has LED lights including a candle flicker mode! And has settings to run 5, 8 or 10 hours!!! The value of all of that on it’s own is over $400! Wow! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

I am so honored by the recent feature in our town’s local Butler County Business Matters magazine and if that’s what brought you to DIYShowOff today, I want to extend a warm welcome, a big hug and a thank you for stopping by! It’s so fun making new friends – even e-friends! And getting to know you!

A little about Roeshel: 

As a home DIY and decorating blog author, Certified Aroma Freedom Technique Practitioner and inspired Young Living user and business leader, I share DIY decorating tutorials here on the blog but more importantly, I love teaching that a beautiful home begins with creating a happy and healthy environment. We can do all of the pretty cosmetic renovations and fill our home with beautiful decorative accents but surrounding ourselves with positive energy and promoting emotional and overall wellness are the most important accessories. Living our best life is the most treasured “do-it-yourself” project of all.

roeshel

Before blogging transformed into a full time career in 2007, my work history included nearly 20 years of administrative support in healthcare and especially because my family history within the past 5 years dramatically changed from no medical history of cancer to include cancer survivors (4 close family members), I possess an interest in health, healing and natural approaches which led me to Young Living and the Aroma Freedom Technique. I am passionate about promoting wellness from the inside out, developing an attitude for gratitude, raising awareness for chemical free living and empowering others to achieve their goals.

The building has so much historical charm. It’s about one block from our town’s Main Street. The bus stop is literally steps away. There’s a gorgeous Butler, PA Bed & Breakfast across the street called Suite Retreat (how cute is that?!) and an antique shop nearby. There are breweries, the YMCA, shops, restaurants, salons, florists, candy/coffee shop, holiday parades and festivals within walking distance. So fun! If renovation from blah to ahhhhh is your thing, stay tuned!

So subscribe and be reminded of updates as the renovations progress! I’ll share before and after photos, projects underway and updates, plans and design boards, sources and links as they relate as well as fun events going on in and around the downtown area. I’ll be using a specific hashtag on social media to keep things all neat and tidy and organized.

‘Tis the Season to be Jolly! And Healthy!

‘Tis the season to be jolly! And healthy! And if you’re wondering where to even start with a healthier lifestyle, here’s my story. As you know, I’m a DIY girl. No fear about diving in and giving things a try. So doing the same when it comes to wellness made sense to me. This is what got me started, raised awareness and made a difference in my lifestyle:

DesertMistPSK

 

Is what you put into your body important to you? I‘m pretty sure by now that you’ve heard a lot about essential oils, right? ::groan:: and ::eye roll:: <— that was my initial reaction too! lol! What IS all the fuss about? Let me share it with you as short and sweet as I can why essential oils are all the rage for me personally. (Some affiliate links below.)

I am so forver grateful someone shared with me: When I first heard, I thought it was some temporary popular trend and I tuned it out. la-la-la-la-la!!!!!! But nearly 4 years ago on a blogging retreat, two of my blog buddies shared essential oils with me…I have a bit of an issue with traveling which causes some uncomfortable side effects (TMI! you don’t want to know) and the essential oil shared made all the difference! Oh.my.good.NESS! If it worked for that, how else? In my world at the time, my mom and sister were going through treatments for breast cancer. I was ready and open to making healthier choices. Baby steps. Just starting somewhere.

You guys, I’ve had 6 family members diagnosed with cancer in SIX years! I felt so helpless! 

DIYShowOff

Essential oils have been around FOREVER and I know that lately they’re ALL THE HYPE but I believe it’s because word of mouth spreads faster these days via social media. They aren’t new. And specifically, Young Living has been around going on 30 years! I was still practically a child (and I’m a grandma now!). That’s not anything bright and shiny and just born. And “Young Living” is THE BRAND everyone wants. Because guess what? Not all essential oils are created equal! What I really love about Young Living is their Seed to Seal Guarantee. They aren’t just buying from a supplier and slapping on a label. Young Living controls the process of planting, harvesting, distilling, bottling, labeling and shipping from their own farms and partner farms from around the world with high standards and lots of testing. In fact,

Seed to Seal

 

Young Living is the #1 essential oils company in the world. I am confident that I am getting the best quality essential oil. One other quick point about Young Living…unlike buying a cheap oil from Amazon or WalMart or even TJMaxx (be aware: even a label with 100% pure doesn’t mean that’s the case), I love that I have support, resources and testimonials from personal experiences to help guide me on my oily journey. I’ve never had to work about my health but now I’m empowered to research, to learn more and to embrace wellness. When someone tells me they tried an essential oil and it didn’t work, I’m pretty sure they tried a fragrance or lower grade, not the quality of Young Living essential oils. 

Nostalgia: Something that is really important to me … creating an environment for my sweet grandson that’s FREE of toxins. Know what else I really love? You know how a certain scent will take you back to a really special memory? I love that he is going to associate those amazing good scents like lavender or clove/cinnamon with his grammy. 

roeshel @diyshowoff grandmas rock!

What is an essential oil anyway? My first uneducated thought: “oh, some air freshening junk that maybe helps you relax, snake oils for hippies”. An essential oil is the substance created by plants for protection against damage, injury, predators, environmental/weather changes. And they work for humans (oh and my dog and that horse too) in much the same way. Whoa! I certainly never imagined that essential oils had powerful health benefits. What? Why haven’t we heard about them before? Why didn’t I know that I could grab an essential oil for relief or health support in so many ways without the synthetic chemicals or side effects? The answer to that is an involved blog post for another day but just because I never knew, doesn’t mean it isn’t so. Essential oils were one of the first medicines! I’m learning so much and I’m so thankful that my friends DID share with  me because it’s made a HUGE difference in our lifestyle, our health, our finances and our home. 

 

Again, why Young Living brand? The history, the quality, the support, the selection (hello essential oils, personal care, supplements, cleaning products and so much more – toxin free products I use every day!), the opportunities (ask me how I’m going to the lavender farm for FREE this fall and how I’ve passed up my blogging income, especially when I vowed I would NEVER promote one of those work-from-home type companies). It’s rewarding having the opportunity to help others make healthier choices too. I see how it really is changing lives. And because I see that for myself personally, I really can’t help but to shout it out to you on my blog on occasion or from the top of my lungs on Facebook! “YOU need these oils too!” 

 

Recommendation:

SO here is what I recommend: THIS DIFFUSER IS THE BOMB! 3-5-10 hour settings, LED lights (including a pretty candle flicker)! Love it!

…just dip your toe in by purchasing the premium starter kit. Just try and see. This gives you the biggest bang for your buck with NO obligations. It’s the best way to give essential oils a good fair shot to see the benefits for yourself! For $160 (+tax/shipping) you get:

 
  • A diffuser: You’re going to want to diffuse your essential oils into the air so you can breathe in those health benefits and support! What I love: unlike a candle, there are no toxic chemicals or synthetic fragrances. I get to choose the scent I want to diffuse…something uplifting or relaxing, something immune boosting or cleansing, etc. AND I get to control the strength. A drop or two for sensitive noses, more for a POW – my house smells amazing! The diffusers are constructed of a medical grade material that will not break down with the use of essential oils. It also comes with a 1 year warranty.
  • 11 bottles of essential oils: Peppermint (cooling, great for after exercise, occasional head tension, supporting a healthy digestive system), Frankincense (supports healthy skin, meditative/spiritual, promotes a sense of well being), Lemon (energizing and cleansing), Citrus Fresh (I love adding a few drops to freshen up laundry)), DiGize (a must have for supporting a healthy digestive system), Thieves (supports a healthy immune system, very popular oil that because of it’s awesome power is also used in YL’s household cleaner concentrate, bar soap, hand soap, laundry detergent, dishwashing liquid and dishwasher powder, dental products, hand purifier, etc. too – it’s SO good!), Lavender (relaxing and calming and awesome for all.things.healthy.skin!!!), Copaiba, PanAway (smells like IcyHot, great for after exercise), Raven (supports a healthy respiratory system!), Stress Away (enough said!).
  • A sample of Thieves Household Cleaner (YOU WILL LOVE THIS!!! Cinnamon/clove scent?! Yes please!)
  • Sample bottles and cards to share with others.
  • Sample Ningxia Red (super juice – POW!) 
  • A lifetime wholesale membership – sounds scary but there are no obligations to order ever again. But if you do want to, you now have access to 24% off retail prices! Hurray! Spend 50 pv ($around $50) per year to stay an active member or … hey, go inactive. There is no penalty. You just don’t order again, you walk away free and clear.
  • Friendships and support!
  • The potential to share with others and to make a paycheck – it’s just there, hanging out, yours for the taking IF you want it. No requirements. No monthly quotas. You never HAVE to ‘sell’ or share or speak a word to anyone if you don’t want to. But if you do, you might just get an accidental paycheck! Let’s discuss the details. It’s not like your usual work-from-home multi-level marketing company.
  • Access to a Rewards program IF you decide you love you oils to pieces and can’t live without MORE! Completely optional. I love it because I get things I used to buy at WalMart (but now a chemical free version) and my essential oils delivered to my door and I earn rewards BIG TIME (shopping spree!) but that’s just me. I’m talking about not just essential oils but our toothpaste, household cleaner, deodorant, laundry detergent, lotion, supplements, etc. You have the choice. Decline immediately, sign up if you want some other time or never join it. Up to you!
