Olga's Quilt


My great Aunt Olga asked me to make her a quilt.

Her favourite colour is purple.

This was so much fun to put together - and I got to use up some of my fabric collection also! It's a Schnibbles pattern.

Spring Clean 2015 - Basement Play Area

In last week's Spring Clean 2015 - Basement Family Room post, I mentioned I was on a tight deadline to finish decluttering and cleaning the basement. This area had become a dumping ground for what I was decluttering in the upper 2 floors and I didn't know what to do with it. I am happy to say that school let out and I was ready for an added play space for my schoolagers!

Guest Post: DIY Valence

Hi! I am so excited to be a guest today. I must admit, I'm a little nervous, because my crafting skills are nothing compared to Elizabeth's. I mean, I buy those little quilting squares at HobLob, but I use them to make fabric garlands because I can tie a knot around some string. I am also good with a glue gun, so try not to be too underwhelmed. Besides my attempted craft or two, you can find me running my own little monarchy as The Queen of the Kings. I also dabble a bit in crazy with my bestie and we run a little corner of the internet from July-December helping people plan their Christmas cards at Your Merry Mailbox.

But enough about me, today I am excited to share a fun, simple, CHEAP project that anyone can do! We had lived in our house for 3 years and 50 days when I did this, and I had wanted to do some type of window treatment in our family room for 3 years and 49 days. (The first day I was worrying more about getting everything out of boxes).
