Make DIY Scrapbook Paper Christmas Tree Cones

The most gorgeous book of scrapbook paper was waiting for me at my last Michael’s trip. I don’t actually scrapbook at all anymore (it’s soooo time consuming), but I knew I had to snatch up this glittery, colourful book of awesomeness. One idea I had for all of this lovely, Christmasy paper was to make…

My Colourful Craft Room Office – Our DIY House

When we lived in our Garage House, my “craft room” was our tiny kitchen table and my “office” was a little 5 foot wide nook by the kids’ bedroom. They were not ideal spaces, but I managed to create a lot of fun things in those teeny tiny spots. When we were designing our new…

Our (Almost Finished) DIY Vintage Industrial Kitchen – Our DIY House #FinishYourKitchen

We spend a whole lot of time in our kitchen. Not only do we share family meals there, but the girls and I do crafts on the kitchen table, we have chats next to the island, and I day dream while washing pots (after a ceiling-high stack has piled next to the sink, of course)….

Needless to say, I’m ecstatic about having an office/craft room on the main floor of Our DIY House…

Mood Board: Sunny Woodland Nursery – Our DIY House

I’m excited about every single room in our new house (because we’ll actually have rooms for individual things and people), but this nursery for Baby A is one of my favourites. Baby A has never had her own room (because our current Garage House is too small for that). This new “sunny woodland” sunny woodland”…

Mood Board: Vintage Industrial Cottage Kitchen – Our DIY House

Many, many hours of planning were spent over the kitchen design of Our DIY House. I even Photoshopped various light fixtures into my Ikea kitchen layout to make sure I was happy with the result. I spent days deciding between an island and a peninsula (I chose an island), and I stared endlessly at kitchen…

Living Small: Our Interim Garage-House – Our DIY House

The year is 2006. It’s August and my new husband of 5 months and I are looking for a new home to buy. He’s tired of living in a rental in town and dealing with cranky neighbors. We want to buy something small and inexpensive – and we’re ready to renovate. After almost buying a…
