A whole new generation of Martha Stewarts seems to be popping up all over the blogging world. A personal favorite of the Glitter Guide team? Studio DIY, the color-filled, celebration-centric site run by Kelly Lanza! With a constant stream of accessible how-to’s, Studio DIY always leaves us feeling inspired. Although Kelly’s projects vary by season and event, her style is always uniquely recognizable: bright, modern and chic in the most playful way possible. When Kelly moved into a new studio this year, we just knew she’d design a jaw-dropping workspace. Today Kelly is sharing her brand-new studio — full of all the color and cheer we’ve come to expect — and answering our questions about DIY blogging, her business and her oh-so-enviable style.
You’ve created some of the cutest craft projects we’ve ever seen for Studio DIY. Where does your inspiration for all your projects come from?
My eyes are constantly peeled at the dollar store, the grocery store and the party store for items that are just waiting for an unexpected face-lift! I love thinking about what I could turn a random object into. I’ve turned wrapping paper tubes into giant birthday candles, Easter eggs into ice cream cones…even car tires into donuts!
