I renovated our master bedroom during the summer! We have lived in this nearly fifty-year-old house for fifteen years, and this is the first chance we’ve had to do work like this. The carpeting was I-don’t-know-how-many-years old (dusty pink and gross), some of the wall corners had mold from before we had the roof replaced,… Continue reading Master Bedroom Renovation

Remember this post where I showed you my embroidery-on-floral-sheet project? Five months later, I am finished making this boho tote bag! I had used that project to have some more fun with doing latticework embroidery, where you laid threads in a criss-cross pattern and then stitch x‘s over each crossing. I aimed to cover many… Continue reading Embroidery, Sequin, and Bead Boho Bag Creations!
