Welcome!

The Apple of My DIY, is a Do It Yourself tutorial blog created by me, Corrie Beth Hogg

I’m a lifelong artist, crafter,  maker-of-things. Some of my favorite mediums include paper mâché, paper, soft sculpture, collage, costume design, quilting, crochet, stop motion animation, calligraphy, illustration, floral design, painting and woodworking....I like it all! I hope you find something here that sparks your imagination!

My projects have been seen in magazines such as: Yen, Idees A Faire, Flow, Rum Hemma, EH&I, and blogs such as: Gardenista, Gestalten, Poppy Talk, Curbly, Apartment Therapy, Bored Panda, Design Sponge and more. Presently, I am working on a tutorial book, a guide to crafting paper plants that will be published by Timber Press

I am also a DIY contributor for the lovely blog, The House That Lars Built, you can find all my projects for Lars here

For my day job (which I love), I am the Art and Craft Director at David Stark Design.  For over 12 years, my collaborations with him have been seen in magazines and newspapers such as: Martha Stewart Living, Martha Stewart Weddings, Domino, InStyle, The New York Times, House Beautiful, Elle Decor, Anthology and more. On television my projects have been featured on the TODAY SHOW, Live From The Couch, Martha and E! News. I ideate, craft, and photograph DIY blog posts on David Stark’s behalf for: Design Sponge, Remodelista, Lonny, Apartment Therapy, Style By Emily Henderson, Martha Stewart Weddings, Martha Stewart Living and more.

Originally from Mississippi, I now call Brooklyn my home. When I’m not elbow deep in one craft or another, I can be found hiking, biking, swing dancing, studying wild edible plants, playing guitar and singing country music.
