.:Feature Friday - Positively Splendid:.

Hello, everyone! I am so glad Summer would let me stop in for a visit! I have been so happy to get to know her over the course of the last year I've been blogging. She is such a talented, creative, and sweet person!

My name is Amy, and my little corner of the blogging world is known as Positively Splendid.

My goal is for my blog to be a little haven of crafting and DIY inspiration, and a place where creative people of all skill levels can come and feel right at home. Because I feel strongly that everyone should be equipped to create something beautiful on their own, each and every project at Positively Splendid is explained to the last detail with step-by-step photo tutorials. I like to think of each tutorial as sitting down with friends to learn something new together! I would love for you to stop in for a visit!

Sewing is my truest creative passion. I first sat down in front of a machine three years ago, and everything I know I have learned through trial and error (and lots of long-distance phone calls to my mom!). I strive to share straightforward, thorough and easy-to-follow sewing tutorials that are perfect for those just getting their feet wet, but also for experienced sewists, too.

I recently decorated my son and daughter's shared room with this fun Boy/Girl Room Decor.

I recently created these Whimsical Nursery Wall Hangings for my youngest's room. I think you'll be amazed at how easy these are to put together.

Last year, I gave my front porch a facelift with this set of Numbered Outdoor Pillow Covers. I love the varsity feel of the vinyl appliques I created for these!

I have always been a frugal girl, so I absolutely adore upcycling and refashioning items I already have on hand to create something beautiful. I recently did just that with a set of three ordinary diaper boxes.

Curious to see how I did it? Head over to check out the full tutorial for my Diaper Box Canvas Bins!

Our back porch becomes our favorite living/eating area during the summer months. I made these Outdoor Placemats for our patio table last year, and I loved how easy and durable they were!

Throughout the month of May, I'll be hosting an event at Positively Splendid called the Summer Survival Guide: Tips, Ideas & Inspiration for a Splendid Summer. As I'm sure we all know the summer months aren't often the high time for creative endeavors, I have in mind for this guide to inspire you to keep creating even in the midst of vacations and pool outings! I would love for y'all to stop in for a visit to check out the all-star lineup of contributors and giveaways I have lined up!
