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."

LRW - Glimmer Mist!

I did it!

I finally bought myself some bottles of mist. With the aid of my 6 year old I chose Silver and French Blue Glimmer Mists. I chose these 2 colours so that I could add some sparkle to the snow-themed pages I have been doing lately.

Here is the latest:

I did a lot of of machine sewing on this one and I hand-sewed a lot of buttons on.

But the best part was using the Glimmer Mists to add a little "wintery sparkle" to go with the title. (Man! It is hard to photograph mist. I hope I captured it here!)

Thanks for looking!

LRW and Inspirational Card Sketches

Just a quick post today.

I had lost my scrappin' mojo over the last few weeks. The kids had ALL been sick everyday - infections, flu, toothaches - on and on. Now that we are all on the mend, I finally sat down to scrap. I am glad to have the excitement of paper crafting all come flowing back!

This is the Inspirational Card Sketch for this week (#100):

And at Little Red Wagon, the girls challenged us to use Kraft product on our creations.

This is what I came up with:

The mugs of "latte" are rub-ons from American Crafts for eons ago. I am glad I finally used them up!!
