Inspiration for a Good Day

Oli’s Room Makeover

It’s a hard thing, designing a room for a 4 year old. It needs to be youthful and girly but no one wants a baby room when your almost 5! So we scrapped the baby stuff and are heading in a more grown up direction! Drum roll please………..TA DA! (For now…)

Driftwood Lamp

Well, I figured I would take my lamp making skills, and go a little more rustic and natural. And what could suit those qualities more than driftwood?

So I went to the beach, and spent a few hours hand choosing specific pieces of driftwood that would make this lamp special. Then I very carefully found (or made) holes up through it all, popped a little wiring magic in and VOILA! A beautiful unique piece of art that doubles as a table lamp.

As much as I love this lamp, I am running out of room to store my creations. So If you see something on the blog you like, shoot me an email at and we can work out some pricing. Expect the lamps to go for around about $100. Because the art and the process of the build is the main reward for me:)  I would be interested in taking requests as well for lamps made out of weird items.

As always,

Summer Bucket List

With the my last school year finally finding its end, I am starting to plan my to do list for the summer. Despite the fact that I will hopefully be working, I am still planning on lots of time for fun crafty things. The list is as follows:

  1. Re-Decorate Oli’s room. Moving away from the baby dragonflies and into a big girl room she can grow with. Including a beautiful Purple Chandelier!





2. Take a trip somewhere with my amazing husband, somewhere warm and tropical with beaches and interesting animals.

3. Do the interior design for my dads house, while simultaneously launching his furniture company.

4. Plan the biggest and bestest fund raiser for my favourite friend, Brittany! Check out for info on why we are fund raising.

And lastly, I want a job that pays decent but more importantly allows me some creative freedom with merchandising and window design.


I hope you see posts about all these topics in the near future!
