Hello, I am Susan from Oh My! Creative, and this week I am here to share with you some of Krista’s amazing home projects! I have been following along with Krista and her blog The Happy Housie for a few years. We connected through social media on google+ and through the Whimsy Wednesday link party at Oh My! Creative. It never fails as I am selecting some of my favorite projects for the week that I almost always select one of Krista’s! She creates beautiful spaces {just look at her deck below} amazing furniture makeovers as well as wonderful seasonal decor! I know you will love her style and creative projects! Let’s take a look and see what she’s sharing…


Thrifty Ideas For Decking Out Your Deck!

thehappyhousieHello everyone! My name is Krista and I blog over at The Happy Housie. I called my blog this because I think of myself as a ‘housie’: someone whose hobby and passion is all kinds of house related pursuits like DIY, decorating, crafts, organizing, and making old things new again.

I have been “this way” as long as I can remember… when most girls were playing Barbies I was redecorating their dream house (and van) and when other girls were reading BOP and Sassy magazines I was spending many a fabulous hour with my IKEA catalogue and house plan books…creating to-scale drawings of my “dream” home on my big old pad of graph paper.

As an adult I realize that there is no such thing as a “dream” home and that every home we have lived in (four in twelve years) becomes our “dream” home when we add our own imprint upon it. Whether we are decorating (or re-decorating), completing DIY projects, crafting, organizing, or just having fun living – there is always something new happening around here, and this blog is all about my journey through life as a born’n’bred housie.

In my spare time from all our “housie” related exploits I squeeze in time with my DIY-ing husband and my two wonderfully busy little boys as well as an almost full time job teaching Kindergarten.

I have never thought much about decorating the back of my closets {mostly because mine aren’t this neat} but I am loving this DIY Faux Map Wallpaper!
