Local Butler, PA friends: 

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! I love supporting our community and small local businesses and your presence here and shares do exactly that, so thank you from the bottom of my heart! 

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.

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.

Aroma Freedom Technique is my favorite DIY tool for a beautiful transformation starting with yourself. AFT can guide you through the process of removing that negative voice interfering with taking control of reaching your goals and dreams. It’s time to take action and make it happen! It’s time to create your best life. Aroma Freedom Technique – group/individual sessions online/in person by appointment.

About DIYShowOff: 

DIYShowOff after

DIYShowOff was created as a place to encourage and share do-it-yourself projects, a place to journal our renovation adventures as well as feature others who share a passion for all things DIY related, a place to ‘show off’ your creativity. There’s a weekly link party for my fellow blog friends to share their latest DIY masterpiece. It’s a great way to discover new blogs and gather up fresh new DIY inspiration. 

DIY ShowOff & Share

DIY ShowOff & Share

I still share my DIY projects and what’s going on with me, our room makeovers, DIY projects, crafts, recipes, favorite things, and well, anything that I want to share since I’m the boss! lol I feel like my passion for wellness, purpose and abundance is also a great fit. Right? So occasionally I expand the content to include creating not only a beautiful home but a healthy one too! DIYShowOff is has evolved to include whatever’s on my mind, going on in our lives around here and more.

Project Diary #12 Christmas at the Studio

Featured

It’s Christmas as the studio! Since we can’t put life on hold, let’s ignore the unfinished projects and enjoy a festive look at the holiday cheer in a mostly finished space. A place where we share DIY home ideas and creating a beautiful home begins with a healthy environment.   wellness inspired living Christmas

Remember that Succulents & Spruce Christmas tree? It’s a beautiful focal point to the studio living room area. I love the colors and rustic nature vibe in this space.  Christmas tree - rustic   A grapevine star against a window in the daytime is hard to photograph but trust me, it makes for a perfect topper! christmas tree grapevine star topper And I love the pop of color from these coppery-orange ornaments.   christmas tree bulb  Gold glitter feathers! My favorite sparkle accent for this nature themed tree. rustic christmas tree gold glitter feather  There’s lots of extra leafy garlands to give it a fuller look too. Did you notice?  rustic christmas   And there’s Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil in the diffuser ornament giving it a beautiful pine scent! When you can’t have fresh pine, this is a great option! Smells amazing! young living diffuser ornament   A fluffy comfy throw as a tree skirt makes me want to curl up under there to enjoy the starry-night glow! cow hide throw blanket tree skirt    Christmas decor  The mantel is all decorated for celebrating Happy Holidays!  Christmas fireplace  Isn’t it gorgeous? Those fairy lights in glass ornaments are my favorite tucked into lush pine forest garland is just so magical!

And the porch and stairs are on the ‘to-do’ list but a grapevine wreath with holly berries and red velvet bow with poinsettias greets our guests at the door. christmas entryway helloredreno  Oh! The first sneak peek! There is now vinyl decal lettering on the windows to share with our community what’s going on! Wellness Inspired Living is what it’s all about, creating a home that promotes a better you and a healthy home environment for your family. Well-being. You can learn more about my story and what that means to me HERE. wellness inspired living Butler PA Butler PA Wellness Inspired Living studio The entryway still needs painted (or maybe even a pretty wallpaper accent wall with a bench and decor – so many ideas!) but I used what I have on hand to give it a welcoming atmosphere.  christmas foyer   The studio is a place in our downtown where we gather for discussing living above the wellness line, to get together to support one another, for education and fun times. It’s also an available meeting space for small/home business//women in business.  welcome guests door prizes  My 4-year-old grandson took this next photo. I think he did a pretty good job! I love the antique door knob from a little one’s perspective.  Christmas doorknob   With lots of holiday events on the calendar, a “Selfies with Santa”//holiday photo backdrop and props is getting lots of use and laughs! So fun! Christmas photo backdrop selfies with Santa  Before the photo backdrop…this wall featured the quote scroll but was moved to the entryway. Aroma Freedom Technique happens in this room (although via video chat too) –  achieve your goals! xo  living room Christmas vignette helloredreno   Time for entertaining my friends! Some photos, ideas and settings from some recent events: Wine and chocolate. This photo might represent entertaining AND for personal use as well. hahaha! Christmas wine cart

Yay! Another sneak peek. You saw them from the outside above and I haven’t revealed the workshop area yet but this grid of windows is amazing for it’s natural light! Christmas window with plants reindeer  The shelving area above a hot beverage station…this room has no natural light but I love it’s function. Beverage center, back door, coat room, hallway. Christmas hot cocoa station Mantel deer…did I mention I can’t get enough of GOLD lately. How about you?  gold reindeer Okay, friends! THIS IS THE BEST SNEAK PEEK….I am in LOVE with how the workshop area is coming along. This table gathers friends for DIY craft time, make & takes, wellness education, iTOVI scans and small parties! Those dark moody walls paired with the barn wood walls (not shown below) and that grid of 9 beautiful windows that sold me on this studio and tempt me to want to LIVE in this room! I’ll share more specific details in the upcoming before/after reveal but wow, right? So so pretty! Or maybe you need to see the before to appreciate it like I do. You’ll have to stop back soon. ::wink wink:: helloredreno workshop   This Desert Mist diffuser is amazing! I absolutely love the candle flicker mode and diffusing settings. You can get it HERE. You need it! You’ll LOVE it! I don’t miss burning candles one bit. That’s saying a lot! I was a brand name candle junkie! I love that I can easily and frequently change up the scent, mood, health benefits…just take a look at more info. I’m so grateful a friend shared with me and feel compelled to pass it on. You control what you bring into your home and a diffuser and essential oils was that first baby step towards a healthier me, family and home.  Premium Starter Kit Desert Mist Diffuser   Another photo from a 4-year-old’s perspective. Setting up for an essential oil make & take party and there’s a glimpse of that gorgeous barn wood.  essential oils Christmas party ideas diyshowoff   I love handmade gifts and making them so pretty and festive with all the trimmings.

Next up:

The workshop transformation. It’s my favorite! 

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.

#helloredreno

I welcome your thoughts and ideas! And as always, thanks for your encouragement and support and for sharing in my joy and vision! Watch for #helloredreno!
