A My Home Matters BOXED UP 2023 Year in Review

A My Home Matters BOXED UP 2023 Year in Review

I can't believe we have curated and sent out more than FIVE YEARS worth of DIY home decor subscription boxes to our members! My Home Matters BOXED UP continues to allow us to create projects that members can make their own. From seasonal decor to items that can be used all year long, we try to cover it all! So, let's look back at what projects we did in 2023!

January: "A Window to Winter"
Snowflakes and mittens and sparkly greens, oh my! This "window to winter" adds some cheer to the cold days. It went so perfectly with our (now retired) Happiness is Homemade smaller box which was the clothespin snowflakes.

February: "A Basket Full of Love"

This woven "basket full of love" was perfect for adding that sweet touch to our Valentine's decor! Complete with greenery, stencils, ribbons and embellishments, there were many outcomes possible.

March: "Spring Delivery"

Painted or left alone in it's galvanized metal state, this envelope can be hung from a hook, off of a blanket ladder, or propped up on a shelf or table and the contents can be swapped out for other seasonal looks.

April: "Puddle Splashin' "

Those boots! Aren't they so cute? This project included the riser, galvanized watering can and some greenery and was the icing on the cake when displayed with the Happiness is Homemade smaller box project.

May: "Follow the Sign"

Family and love, the two most important things in life, both are displayed on this reversible sign that simply rotates. It even works well on last month's riser!

June: "We the People"

We got a huge dose of patriotic decor with this month's box! We loved every little detail from the thread spools to the large number four to the flower and papers!

July: "Contain Your Excitement"

I mean who couldn't use this super versatile wooden container complete with bottle opener, paper towel holder, several choices for wording and handles for which to carry it to wherever you need it!?

August: "More S'More!"

After a special summer camp focused on all things s'mores, we followed it up with a box filled with even "more s'more" themed pieces! Whether it be for summer camping, summers by the pool or fire pit, or a cozy fall or winter bonfire, s'mores are an anytime kind of decor in our book!

September: "Wagonload of Pumkins" 

This darling little wagon had us drooling with it's cuteness! Obviously, we paired it with some super cool pumpkins but the wagon can hold any seasonal item so that it can be utilized any month of the year.

October: "Spooky Candlesticks"

We added a fun twist to some candlesticks with these "spooky" projects, complete with witch hat topper and beaded pumpkin!

November: "Twelve Days of Decking the Halls"

Our Holiday Box may have been a big challenge to curate but I think it was my favorite of the year. Twelve home themed ornaments that can deck our halls for years to come! And, that little ladder with the blanket? AHHHH-dorable!

December: "The Extend-A-Riser"

Okay, I said November was my favorite but December's box was pretty much tied. This hand crafted riser that can be used as one "extendable" centerpiece or as three separate pieces makes decorating a breeze! We love options, and boy does this one give you options!
