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."

4 New Layouts to Share!!

Snow Fun!! (Fresh snow - fun for the big kids and a new adventure for Camden!)

Cam @ 1 ( I took these pics of Camden on the morning of his first birthday. I love them! I think they captured his sweet and wild personality perfectly!)

Christmas Princess (Afton dressed up for Christmas festivities. She asked that I use some of her Princess Christmas cards on a layout so here it is!)

Christmas @ Home ( 12 pics of Christmas morning all ion one layout!!)

Papercrafts and Home Decor

I am finding more and more that papercrafting is becoming part of the way I decorate my home. For instance, these 2 portrait collages in my home are based scrapbooking sketches I found online:

Here is the one in our living room:

Here is the one in the kid's bathroom:

Cute eh? Can you guess which pictures are Bryn? Afton? Camden?

(The top 2 are Bryn, the bottom 2 are Afton and Camden is the far right.)

I had a friend ask me to post a picture of the wall art I made for Camden's nursery. They are simply canvases that I painted, then mod-podged pictures that I had pieced out of leftover scrapbook paper. They hang over the twin bed I have in Cam's bedroom (this bed was very useful when he was an infant and I needed to crash closeby!)

My "Journal Your Christmas" Album

It is complete!! I decided I would be done creating new pages on the first of January (you can continue until the 12th day after Christmas if you so choose!) And here I am, on the 10th of January, actually clipping the final finished pages into my album. I could have been done sooner except I kept forgetting to print the photos for Jan. 30 (A Year in Review) and New Years Eve.
This is a project I am really proud of. It made me think about lots of aspects of Christmas that often slip my mind during the hub-bub of the holidays. I also like what I have done creatively. I have never worked in a 6x12 format so it was challenge to think long and skinny instead of big and square like I am used to. But I like how it has turned out and I will definitely make a mini-book in this size again.

Click on the little picture and you will be taken to a slideshow of my Journal.
