Welcome!

My name is Bronwyn and I am so glad you have stopped by for a visit. I hope you find joy and inspiration in everything you see here. I live with my family in a new, builder-grade townhome in a small city, even though my dream home would be a century old farmhouse in the countryside. Daily I strive to add warmth, "age," and character to our little home. I love to knit, crochet, sew, decorate, bake and go thrift shopping. These are all a wonderful release after my three small children are off to bed each evening. Thankfully, I have a patient and understanding husband, Kevin, who allows me to bring all kinds of crazy things into our home in the the name of "creativity."

The Inspired Scrapper & Mom!!

I never really realized how much time and energy my mom put into raising my two sisters and I (with the help of my dad, of course!) until I had three kids of my own. She took 12 years off of her teaching career in order to be there every step of the way for us. I know she'll be the first to tell you that those years were the most challenging and the most meaningful of her life.

I wanted to celebrate my mother in a layout, paralleling her time with us and my time with my three munchkins. I came up with this:

I used Cosmo Cricket's "Material Girl" line as a tribute to my mother's sewing, knitting and crafting prowress. I hope I continue to get as much joy out of crafting as she still does!!

  1. Love your layout. The little details and paper are perfect, but the concept is fabulous. You did a great job bringing together her life as mom with your own.
