Hello and welcome! I’m Stephanie, founder and the Contessa behind Contessa Crafts. But, just what is blog about? The name, Contessa, is inspired by Contessa Montebello, my creative role model. The idea behind this blog is to encourage creativity everyday in home decorating, crafting with the kids and to share ideas. My motto: “If you can buy it, you can make it.” Most people don’t realize how easy and fun it can be to really make your home your own. I take my inspiration from everything in life: textures, patterns, song lyrics, television shows, things in nature and retro fashion. Join me on my creative journey.
