Home Sweet Home–Create Along -Jan-Mar

I am thrilled that everyone is excited about this years project…I am sure we will make beautiful things together !
I are starting with our Living room / Dining room because every year after the Christmas decorations are put away, our house always looks sooooo sad & colorless … I need something new!
As I was searching for ideas I was “overwhelmed” with the possibilities ..they are endless !
I decided to start with some of the basic “decorating ideas “  …Pillows, Pictures, Quilts, Tablerunners, Coasters & Deco items. …we can all use these.
Pillows are always a great picker upper…I like to change the covers on our pillows for the holidays /seasons / my mood….here are some that I found were different.

Pillows ideas
Decorate your walls with new self-made pictures or a new layout….
Pictures ideas
  1. Make a your own
Quilts are always lovely on a couch but I don’t think anyone plans on making one of them this year…I am hoping to finish a few though !

How about something easier…a Tablerunner…aren't these interesting …of course you can make a quilted one, a simple one or a seasonal oneTablecloth ideas
  1. No idea who made it but I like it.
Don’t need a table runner…how about a few fun coasters??
Coaster Ideas
  1. Coffee mugs

No home would be complete without some Decoration items…here the possibilities truly are endless. Here are a few things that I thought were cute or different.

These ideas should get your create juices flowing…maybe you have some of your own ?? Or are you looking for something ??
You don't have to make these….these are only ideas…you are free to make whatever you like …Livingroom / Diningroom is the subject .
Can't wait to see the first pictures ! I will set up an extra post at the beginning of every month where you can linkup your finished pictures.
Have fun creating!
P.S. As I find more interesting ideas I will post them…
