UPDATE As a budget-focused decorator and blogger, conjuring and sharing ways to “get the look for less” is something I relish. This project was no exception. Originally, it was my belief that these artworks were merely part of the prevailing typography sign trend; mass-designed, mass-produced and mass-distributed. I have since learned the concept for these ....Continue reading….
You guys! I was totally overwhelmed by the response to my laundry room makeover. Thank you all so, so much for the sweet comments, and for your votes! Although I’m not sure I can compete with some of the other super talented and popular contenders, it’s been heartening to see my numbers grow and I ....Continue reading….
I love Christmas. It’s my favourite time of year. So, it seemed only fitting that my advent calendar should bring together a few more of my most fave things; wall charts, chalkboards, typography and bakers twine! The countdown to Christmas day isn’t something I’ve given much thought to since childhood, though now with little kids ....Continue reading….

One stand-out request has been for me to share the original PSD (Photoshop Data File). For those of you who don’t know what the heck ....Continue reading….
After I posted my DIY canister decal tutorial I had a HEAP of requests for additional labels. Soooo, because I’m a really nice blogger (and/or just totally awesome in general :-) I decided I would create another page of some staple pantry labels for you guys (see the “At a Glance” section below to view and download). ....Continue reading….
Some of you may remember, a little while back I posted a tutorial for DIY waterslide decals. Among other things, I mentioned how awesome they are for creating custom embellishments without the need for any fancy-pants equipment. Yep, waterslide decal paper is a truly fab product, though as great as it is, there is ....Continue reading….

All you need is some waterslide decal paper and a printer (plus a cute design of course!). Waterslide decal paper comes ....Continue reading….
So, there’s cool vintage and then there’s not so cool vintage, right? Well, when I first saw this deco vanity it definitely sat in the latter category though just needed a little nudge to bump it to the former. It came to me for the bargain price of $0 – really, the things people just throw away. It was complete ....Continue reading….
