Follow Your Arrow

I love to decorate and re-decorate my home! I love to make beautiful spaces for my family to live in. I also have a passion for crafting and creating new things. 
I do this blog in hopes to inspire you to make something beautiful for your Home and Family.

Here goes something amazing...
I have finally decided to sit down and do what I was meant to do.  Blog!  I am so excited to be getting started.  I have so many ideas running at full speed through my brain I can hardly make my fingers type this post.  

This past weekend my mom and I made a trip to Columbus, Ohio for The Country Living Fair.  This was my 3rd year attending the event and I can't say enough good things about it.  They have amazing demonstrations for just about everything from cooking to keeping backyard chickens to restoring furniture.  But the best part is the seemingly endless number of vendors all selling their unique wears.  They have antiques, furniture, home decor, clothing...  If its beautifully unique, it's there for you to take home and add to your collections.  

Every year I come away inspired to do so many amazing things.  I walk around making mental notes of things to sew, glue, crochet, knit and paint...

But, first things first, I had to redecorate my living room with all of the amazing finds I brought home with me!  Stay tuned... my next post will be all about my Fall Mantel and all of my great CL Fair finds.  So now I'm officially ready for fall, well, at least my living room is ready.  (I need a few more Pumpkin Spice Chia Lattes!)  

So we are back, and now I am sitting to gather my thoughts!  I have some really high hopes for my new blog.  I plan to add lots of helpful information, some really great tutorials and some beautiful things for you!    


I hope this blog: 
~Inspires creativity
~Provides information
~Is pretty amazing (Pretty & Amazing!)

Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you come by often!

p.s.  If you are interested in visiting the Country Living Fair there is another one coming up in Atlanta, GA on October 23, 24 & 25.  You can visit their website for more information.

Fall fireplace and Country Living Fair finds

I feel like an official blogger now that I am sitting down to write my second blog post.  And, I'm so excited about this one...

     I wanted to share with you all my fireplace/hearth/built-ins fall redo.  My family room is always done with blue and green accents so I kept that theme while I sprinkled in my fall decorations.  I really hope you like it and it inspires you to rearrange for the upcoming season change.  Here are the pictures:



     What do you think?  I love that my built-ins are painted an off-white!  I can put just about any color on the shelves and it will pop.  I have to be a little careful though, they can start to look really cluttered so I repeat "less is more" the entire time I'm placing items. :)  
     Heres how I reorganize my shelves.  I've done this lots of times so I've come up with an easy way to get the look I want.  Trust me it can get very overwhelming!       ~First, I empty all of the shelves completely and lay everything out o…

Harvest Bunting Banner

Today, while I was redecorating my Living Room, I decided to make this Harvest Bunting Banner to add to my Fall decorations.  It was really easy and I'll show you the steps to make it here.
Here is what you will need to complete this project:           ~ 1 yard fabric (I used an old table cloth)           ~ 1 brown paper bag (or any sturdy fabric)           ~ scissors, roatary cutter and mat           ~ letter stencil           ~ black paint and brush           ~ twine or ribbon           ~ Sewing machine
Step One:  You will need to decide how big you want your triangle to be.  I did 10 inches wide x 12 inches long.  (I chose this size to make sure my widest letter fit on the triangle)  Since 12 was my longest length I cut my fabric to a 12 inch width.  Then I cut at a diagonal every 10 inches and that is how I got my triangles.  Also cut your backing triangles.  I used a brown paper bag for this project but you can use anything sturdy.
Step Two:  Sew your front and back triangles together.…
