Our kitchen and dining room are not finished, but here are some little peeks: I am looking after my grandmother's trinkets for her (she had to move to an assisted living situation due to Alzheimer's). I added a few of my own in there - a koopa troopa, a hei teki...

Sorry for the long wait - life just keeps getting in the way. Our kitchen still needs quite a bit done but oh how I LOVE it and will now forever need to upgrade kitchens in future houses. Kind of a curse, that. I had hoped Boy could take some awesome photos with his...

If 2017 became a year of Make, I want 2018 to continue that theme. You already know I signed up for TAST, and plan to keep myself motivated through weekly WIP posts. Last year was the technical side spent mostly on learning someone else's pattern rather than creating...

covered lampshade

covered lampshade

Years ago I bought white paper lampshades from Ikea with the intention of decorating them (yeah, that almost never happened). After I painted the bedroom, they were certainly the ugliest bits in it so they needed a makeover. I did not take photos along the way, but I...

the future of a case of the crafties

The future is uncertain. I may post considerably less often. Or nothing may change at all. At this point, I really have no idea just how much of my life will be changing, but the comments I made about postponing house updates or making much cheaper decisions, are all...

House stuff

House stuff

Our old front door had a huge gap all the way around it. I mean seriously, that's where most of the bugs and critters were probably coming from (not to mention where all the heat and air were going to). We found a perfect front door, but since our circumstances have...

Nature

Nature

We had a really rough storm blow through when we got back from NYC. Our house wasn't attacked by Mother Nature as much as other people I know, but we did have a pretty sizeable amount of limbs to pick up. (Other people were without power for a few days, or had many...

I am sure you have been expecting pictures of my new kitchen but it has been really hectic here. Not only is there still much to be done with it, but Boy also has moved his company to a new location so that has taken a higher priority of our time. I will leave you...

Scrap: Mazda Rev It Up

Scrap: Mazda Rev It Up

I've reclaimed most of my house (and all of my craftroom!) from the kitchen remodel so I thought I should finally post about my scrapbook adventures. When I scrap, I usually have four categories I use to create the layout: 1) paper and embellishments (stickers, tags,...
