I love decorating- but it can be an expensive hobby. Luckily I love finding good deals and treasure hunting! When I look around my home I notice all the items that were purchased from a thrift store or handmade.
I have lots of handmade & DIY decor around my home. It feels great to be surrounded by items that I created or were created just for me by my friends and family.
