Here we are in May, and I am finally giving you all a progress update on the building of our grand craft/art studio. It was back in January when we first revealed this big and exciting home project of building a custom studio, which has been a dream of mine, ever since I was a little girl. There is no doubt that this creative space will get a whole lot of use. In fact, I can easily see it becoming the most occupied room, in the whole house, by our whole family. I am always going at craft or art projects, and Michael’s design, cutting and lettering prepping work space will be in here too.… Read More
It is not often that I ever do the same craft-like project, twice. But I’ve got a feeling that making glass tile pieces is going to be something I’ll be doing again, and again. I am so fond of the high quality feel of the finished pieces, the variety of styles that can be made, the multitude of purposes they can be made to be used for, and the fact that I simply enjoy making them for myself and as gifts for others.

So many months ago now, I started making some fun signs (with a little side-kick help from Michael), for the purpose of home decor. I got so into it, that we started talking about opening an Etsy custom-order sign shop!… Read More
Our kids especially, are very blessed with very thoughtful and loving aunties, who often send them all kinds of wonderful mail, all throughout the year. Both through the postal service, as well as e-mails. They always love it, and you can always see the expression on their face of how loved and ‘thought of’ it makes them feel. They treasure and keep mail like that.
Well after receiving some very fun and thoughtful mail in our street mailbox a few times, from a reader of our blog, who has since become a friend, I had the idea of inviting her to do a guest post on some tips and ideas of how you can be creative with ‘snail-mail’, as we call it these days. I’m so glad I did!… Read More
