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."

Project 12 for the Month of April and "Engaged"

I have been trying to use the Project 12 sketches each month to create a layout that uses the photos that are cute, but otherwise wouldn't call for their own layout. Here is the sketch for April:

And here is my interpretation. I used one of my favourite lines from Imaginisce, "Twitterpated" and I was glad to be able to use a whole sheet of the adorable animal paper included in the collection.

My little sister became engaged to her boyfriend at the beginning of May. They took a little vacation to NYC and Wayne popped the question in Central Park. Now she has a lovely diamnond ring and I am getting another brother-in-law!!

I recently bought a copy of this magazine. While creating this layout, I challenged myself to use at least 2 techniques found in the mag. The first technique I tried was the use of laser-cut paper through a peek-a-boo opening. I even stitched around the opening just like they suggested. The second technique I tried was to create a funky photo border using a row of scalloped half-circles. I really like how this border brings the photo into prominence even though there is a large hot pink butterfly in the opposite corner!!
