cool websites for home decor, pretty much custom and DIY designs

ok, so we all know by now that i hate housework. and oh! do i have tons to do today!! :S so, obviously, i watched Steven & Chris instead. and they had the coolest segment about DIY/custom home decor... websites. that's right, you can get custom-designed pillows, fabric, wallpaper... while sitting on the couch in your underwear. (fyi, right now i'm clothed. but i could still order some of these things. clothes are ok, too. they don't discriminate.) so here we go, some really awesome websites:
custom wallpaper. nuff said. apparently, great quality. you can make your own designs or choose from pre-made stuff. can't decide between skulls or victorian? get them both on one paper! want a poem on your wall? don't give the kids a sharpie... nope. order it on wallpaper. :) awesome.
in addition to having cool everything!!!, you can design your own pillow. designs are not printed on the fabric, they're embroidered.
yes, the kleenex people... or, um... i guess scotties wouldn't like being called "kleenex"... since they're... you know... the competition... but you know what i mean. anyhoo... here, you can design your own photo sleeve, which slips right over the.... oh, what do they call them now?!?!... "facial tissue" box. so cute!! and not that expensive, either. about $6, and you can use the photo sleeve over and over again. (ugh. you know what? i don't care what scotties says. they're kleenex.)
custom fabric. that's right, you can design your own fabric. and they have all the information you need when ordering fabric, to make it easier. and since it's kind of like etsy, you can contact the designers and discuss your needs.
"customize your rugs, pillows & totes." seriously. how awesome is that!!!!


Why I Write Here

i like this blog. this is where i write about homelife. my kids, my pets, recipes, natural cleaning products, gardening, cool finds... that's what i write about here. this is the hands-on part of my personal journey. i'm reclaiming myself, a self i lost in a hospital somewhere, among all the meds, plastic, waste and complexity that comes with Special Needs parenting. i crave simplicity, and this is my journey to create it for my family and me.
