Every morning, I glance outside, stretch, then reach for my iPhone. Checking the time, I quickly scroll through a few quick things online, then begin my day. But every evening, I always wish I had my laptop nearby.   But with nothing to put it on, I’ve never bothered… until now!   Springing up the […]

How to make a DIY #FAILURE a success

Screen Shot 2014-03-12 at 11.10.05 PM

FAIL #1 It was during The 12 Days of Christmas. And I had this amazing idea to make a snowflake cutlery ornament. Don’t let the above amazingness fool you now. We aren’t quite done yet. I had collected all these vintage forks, knives and spoons. But I rather lucked out. There was a spoon wind […]

The beginning of a quirky DIY toolbox revolution

Screen Shot 2014-03-06 at 10.22.17 PM

Today I woke up in a rather sleepy mode. Shaking my head free of the cobwebs, I flat out realized I wasn’t ready to start my day quite yet. I had worked the dayjob the day before, then blogged at night, so I was lacking some sleep for sure. Isn’t that the beauty of self […]

Reclaimed wood business card holder toolbox

Screen Shot 2014-03-02 at 12.13.39 AM

As I was creating some toolbox kits to bring to the Fraser Valley Women’s Expo event on Saturday, the old sewing machine drawer sitting next to them wasn’t cutting it.
