Have you ever wondered how to flock a pre-lit Christmas tree? My pre-lit tree has been with me for 10 years, now. It has been stuffed and crammed and bent in all sorts of ways throughout that time, and the only wear and tear that it has displayed has been the burning out of the lights.
This year is the first year that I am posting a tour of my home for Christmas. In the past, I have avoided getting into this because it is such an exhausting time for bloggers, and probably for you, as well. But, I drug all of the camera and video equipment out of the studio and transported it all around my house to capture the big event! So, I hope you enjoy my 2018 Southern Home Christmas Tour! Welcome to my home!
I have been an avid user of Photoshop for years. I actually started way back in 2001 using photo editing software. Back then I used Jasc Paintshop. But within a few years, I had switched to Photoshop. I am glad that I knew my way around it once I started blogging. It is probably the number one tool in my arsenal of blogging weapons, and with that tool, the most convenient editing skill is knowing how to create presets in Photoshop.
This year I am joining up with Remodelaholic and 21 other bloggers for the Remodelaholic Creative Christmas Challenge! And as my contribution to the challenge, I have created a reversible interchangeable DIY easel.
To challenge myself, I wanted to make something that a lot of people want, but add a spin to it – hence the reversible/interchangeable part. However, I didn’t stop there, I decided to also make this with no power tools. Yes, you heard me right! Absolutely no power tools.
