Creating our story of home and everything in between.
We are self-taught and love to create. Our projects range from woodworking, home improvement, and many DIY projects! Sometimes we succeed and sometimes we do over.
Designer & Hand-lettering Artist
I started Creatively Southern in 2012 after my daughter’s first birthday. In the beginning it was a place to share my adventures of life as a mother and all of my DIY projects. Over the next few years, life got busy and priorities changed, so I tool a really long break from blogging. I struggled to restart and find my inspiration. And then… I met Britt.
Having someone to share this wonderful life with, he inspired me to start creating again. We love to create together and learn from each other. And so, that is where our story picks up. We hope that you will find inspiration here to start creating things you didn’t think you could. After all, every expert was a beginner once, and we are still learning new things every day!
Builder, Designer, & Engineer
Britt is our builder, self-taught engineer, and all around toy fixer! My #1 encourager and supporter, he is my rock. The Engineer Motto fits him to a tee! “If it isn’t broken, take it apart and fix it!
Britt was born to be a creative entrepreneur. With experience in construction, Britt spent several years flipping houses. He has always had a passion for flight, and in 2015, he started SkyWorks360 Media, here in Knoxville. Now, he is also the magician behind all our video editing. In my heart, I know there is nothing he can’t do.
We work as a team to bring you inspiration to transform your home and life through creativity and life experiences. We share a love for life and a few good ol’ Southern traditions.
We Are Makers!
Hey y’all! We are Britt and Ellora, and we are the creators of Creatively Southern. We’ve been called a lot of things over the years, but “Makers” just seems to fit us best.
While we may not always know how a project is going to turn out, we believe that making what we need gives meaning to our home and what we do. Sometimes making things just for fun, builds unforgettable memories and great stories to tell later!
Whether it’s home improvement, 3D printing, laser engraving, or building that fort for the kids to play, we love to DIY it all!
We hope you’ll join our circle here at Creatively Southern. We can’t wait share our journey in DIY, home, family, and anything else we dream to create with all of you. While you’re here, stop by our shop and see some of our favorite things, or check out some of our favorite projects on the blog.

What Makes Creatively Southern Unique?
We aren’t experts. We still feel like newbies every time we begin a new project. And every once and awhile we run across an idea that we feel you might love or find useful in your home. We want to fill our home with meaning and memories and that is what we try to create for you.
If it is made from wood, it’s probably built by us. If it has words on it, it was hand-lettered by us. But what makes Creatively Southern unique is that every piece we make is different. We believe everything we offer and create should be as unique as the people we create it for. I guess you could say that everything we create is a “one of a kind!”
If you need custom work, reach out to us. We would be honored to make something meaningful for you. If it’s a hand-made item or hand-lettering you need for your home, an event, a gift, or even your business, we would love to work with you!
