Alyssa Howard

Alyssa has been creating for as long as she can remember. From disastrous crochet potholders she made as a kid to sophisticated jewelry designed as an adult, she finds inspiration in every medium. Even more exciting is the fun she gets from making her own décor. So it made perfect sense to combine her love of DIY with her other passion- writing. Nothing makes Alyssa happier than searching the Internet for hours looking for new projects and writing about them for Decoist. When she isn’t DIYing or writing, you can find Alyssa studying (she’s an English and psychology student), trying new restaurants around Austin, or watching poetry slams on YouTube. She also enjoys reading and catching up on HGTV reruns.
