About Me


Who am I?
My name is Holly. I am the creator of Borei Design and act as regular contributor to many other crafting, diy and home decor websites. My written tutorials have been featured on sites such as Hometalk, Redbook Magazine, Huffington Post, MSN and many more. I'm also currently working with Hometalk doing Facebook Live Video Tutorials and as an Ambassador for Activa craft products.

How do you even pronounce Borei?
It's Swedish and is pronounced "beret" (bəˈrā) , like the hat.

What do I do?
I left a career in healthcare administration to concentrate more on my family and home. I am a professional tailor, designer, sewer and crafter. What I enjoy most is upcycling and turning trash into treasure.   I use all types of medias but paper, fabric and paints are my favorite. Laughter, crafting, sewing and good cup of coffee is the best therapy I could ever ask for.

Where am I located?
I live in upstate South Carolina in the Charlotte, NC Metro area.

Family?
I'm blessed to be a mother of three, including twins.  I also have a husband and three cats that I totally adore.  They keep me on my toes and my cornball humor about them all has been known to pop up on my blog pages.

Why This blog?
I love to blog and I am a social media addict.  I have been blogging off and on for many years and crafting my entire life.  When I noticed that my personal Facebook page was filling up with how-to posts and pics of my many DIY projects, I decided to give my friends and family somewhat of a break and start a new blog.  I absolutely love to create, share and inspire others to do the same.  Don't hesitate to contact me if  you have questions or if I can be of service and thank you so much for stopping by.
