My name is Michelle and once upon a time I was crafty. I dabbled in various forms of craftiness including drawing, modge-podging stuff on to other stuff, beading, and most recently metal-smithing (a little bit.)Β  This blog is my attempt to document a year in which I plan to return to my crafty roots. When I’m not doing that you will likely find me baking sweet stuff in the kitchen, trying to train for a half marathon, and most importantly, spending time with my boys a.k.a “K” the wonder-husband, and “G” the super-kid.




  1. WELCOME! Thank you for following my blog.


  2. Love you! You are my inspiration on many things…crafty being one of them but mostly just being a better human.

    1. Stop. You’ll make me cry. And thank you! You are a stellar human yourself πŸ™‚

  3. Love your blog. It is a source of inspiration for my upcoming projects!

    1. Thanks so much for your comment. I have been checking out your blog out as well…Look forward to seeing all your upcoming projects πŸ™‚

  4. I look forward to reading more! I have just moved my Craft and Sewing Room from a dark, cold and “hidden” room that was a tandem garage, to the living/dining room of the flat annex to our house. I have 2 large windows onto the garden, sun in the mornings and it is wonderful. I plan to spend many hours of creative joy here πŸ˜‰

    1. Sounds wonderful! Looking forward to following you as well πŸ™‚

  5. Hey there, I have been so away from the blogosphere the past number of weeks. So please forgive me if your pic has been up a while as I am just now getting to commenting…but…GREAT PIC!!
    xoxo MotherDana
