Front Porch Decorating: Winter Swag

Winter Swag Outdoor Decorating Project for the Christmas Season

During the Christmas season, I like to keep decorating around our house simple. Aside from our tree and a few tchotchkes, most of our decor is winter-themed rather than Christmas per se. I began this a few years ago when it didn’t feel quite right to start pulling Christmas decor out in early November. However, […]

Woodland Wreath & One Item Project Challenge (Twigs)

Woodland Wreath | Satori Design for Living

I’m thrilled to be kicking off the One Item Project Challenge today. If you recall, I started this series two years ago as motivation to get a few projects done before the busy Christmas season, as well as the opportunity to collaborate with some of my blogger friends. Working by myself from a home studio […]

Halloween Caramel Apples  Satori Design for Living_B

With Halloween just around the corner, a few of my Canadian blogger friends and I decided to share some fun and boo-tiful project ideas. My contribution- sweet and delicious Halloween caramel apples… Before we get to the recipe for these caramel apples, I must confess that Halloween really isn’t my thing. I know there are […]

Vintage Key Art- Gold Gilded Shadow Box

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and although we typically don’t do much around here to celebrate the Irish tradition, I thought it would be fun to join a group of other Canadian bloggers in hosting a “Pot of Gold” giveaway! I’m sure you’d love to get your hands on $300 worth of […]

Sewing Must-Haves {Fynes Designs}

I started sewing when I was very young. We’re talking pillows and blankets for my barbie beds (which I happened to construct out of shoe boxes), hair scrunchies (they were an 80’s thing in case you don’t know) and, eventually, I worked up to pillows and curtains for my own bedroom. In our previous homes, […]

All Things Christmas {December Link Party Features}

All Things Christmas- crafts, handmade gifts, recipes and more...

Are you ready for Christmas? We finished everything yesterday, except for the food preparations that can only be done at the last minute. I’m excited to unplug and spend the next little while with family and friends! Thank you to everyone who shared projects at the 3 link parties I co-hosted this month along with […]

Holiday Countdown Planner {Week Seven}

Holiday Countdown Series 2013- weekly plans and free printables to keep you on track.

We had a major snowstorm this week and, although it looks Christmasy outside, I’m not loving all the shoveling I’m having to do! I was working up the courage to bundle up and head out into the chilly weather the other night (we’re talking -27C) when I heard my neighbor using his snowblower on our […]
