About Me

I’ve been toying with the idea of creating a project blog for a while now.  I want to record and share the many different projects I find myself drawn to.  As a mom with teenagers, I often think about what they need to know to go out into the big wide world on their own.  Part of that knowledge I feel comes in the basic “how-to” projects.  Now admittedly most of these projects are not going to be necessary perhaps, but nice to know none-the-less.  I think about how many times I’ve called my mom or dad to ask them for directions for just such things.  Memories from growing up include things like: home decor, basic construction skills, recipes, sewing skills, family organization, family gift ideas and the list goes on.  I would like to keep a record of these fun projects and the lessons we learn from them.  

For several years, our family was in transition as my husband finished his education.  We went about things a bit non-traditionally, so our family is a bit older than the average family coming out of school.  We’ve collectively learned a lot and would not trade the experience.  During those years I worked different jobs, held down the household and kept too busy to have many hobbies.  So when we finally settled down, I really didn’t have any idea of what “crafty” things still interested me.  I was a little surprised at the things I just didn’t like anymore and the new things I did.  I’m still experimenting with different ideas and hope you will enjoy sharing in my discoveries.  A few of my new-found interests are: photography, antique collecting, refinishing furniture, home decor, organizing, quilting, and ANYTHING to do with Scrabble Tiles.

I will of course share new projects, but I will also share past projects that I have pictures of.  These may not have the step-by-step pictures, but will hopefully help get your creativity started.
