Rockin’ Stockin’s

As I previously mentioned, my boss nominated me to make holiday stockings for our section of 13. I drafted another co-worker to bang out these hastily-made, ill-planned, yet surprisingly well-executed burdens. I can’t say that all of them are worthy of public viewing. In all reality, some of them aren’t even fit for private viewing, but once it was 11:30 p.m. and I had glitter covering 400 square feet of my house, I was to the point of just scribbling names in black Sharpie on the front of them and calling it a day.

But some are decent enough for this “semi-public” viewing.

Springtime stocking. (I don't do winter.)





















Hanging around the staircase like the Brady Bunch.


We tried to incorporate people’s personality (hopefully that’s obvious) into these stockings. Honestly, they were thrown together in a total of about 5 hours, so they are a bit scattered. But if you only have a family of 4 or 5, these are an easy weekend project that can really knock your stockings off!


About Kristen Van Loon

My name is Kristen Van Loon and this is the chronicle of my search for *Oomf!* Not only have I deemed myself qualified to revamp, repair, refurnish and refine my house, but I also jump into any DIY project that my friends, co-workers, family and practical strangers stumble upon. I would love to tell you that this is my full-time job and my complete life mission, but I make my bread and butter elsewhere and raise a daughter (Olivia). I have some experience but no time, no formal training and no money. My only saving grace is that I love figuring things out, I’m great at improvising and I’m always inspired. For the record, some things that I do (play with electricity, for one) may seem risky, and some of them are. I will always tell you what I’ve done, but I won’t ever suggest things for you that aren’t safe. Even though I push the envelope, I am only marginally incompetent. If sources (father, my brain, Google) tell me not to do something then I usually won’t. But if I do try and it blows up in my face (figuratively or literally) you will hear all about it, and you hopefully won’t attempt it. At the end of the day, I hope to inspire you. Space-Lift isn’t just a blog, it’s a verb. It’s an action that brightens your surroundings by assaulting everything that needs improvement. Nothing is off limits, and all possibilities will be considered.
