More Colourful Home Decor Projects

See, I told you I’ve still been busy with creative projects!  After finishing homeschooling this past spring (after sixteen years – WOW!  It’s a transition time for sure), I have some more time now with which to photograph and write about said projects!

Fun Decor and Fabrics

I keep scrolling on the internet, reading stories about how one of my favourite bloggers/writers touched people’s lives.  She had a far bigger impact than I realized.  I sure will miss her blogs, books, and snarky comments online when challenged by power-hungry leaders who probably felt threatened by her bravery and intellect.  All that reading today makes me think,… Continue reading Fun Decor and Fabrics

Playing with Colour and Pattern

Lately, to relax, I’ve been puttering.  Creatively puttering, that is.  It is difficult for me to just sit and play with art and craft materials without an end product in mind, because I think I need to be productive – must. produce. something (or must tend to some urgent task)!  And yet, children creatively putter… Continue reading Playing with Colour and Pattern

First Time Project: Canvas Slipcover For Couch

Last summer I heard about a free sectional couch (yes, from a clean home) being put to a curbside, and it was in good condition.  It was hauled into a garage for us, and my husband picked it up a few days later.  I’d been wanting a sectional couch for awhile, simply because it would… Continue reading First Time Project: Canvas Slipcover For Couch
