Before I get to today’s featured
pinner, here’s just a bit about me.
I love to make things, to garden,
to read, to write. I love my cats. I love to laugh. And I love my husband. I
also love handmade items – especially earrings and art dolls, Irish
Breakfast tea, Victorian images
and ephemera, and really old books. My
favorite craft tool is my bone folder. I like to touch and feel handmade and
decorative papers like others will touch and feel fine fabrics. I love to
make things look time-worn with distressing and aging. And I love to make
things sparkle with glitter. To me, chips and tears are beautiful and only
enhance the story behind a vintage find. I think life is definitely too
short to hold off pursuing your dreams until “someday” happens. Someday is
now. And living your life in the moment should be what everyone strives for.
That being said, sometimes I craft in my pajamas. Sometimes my “bed head” hairstyle is literally natural. I am a work in progress. And I like it that way. Otherwise I would stop being curious and stop wanting to learn. So what is my blog about? All of the above!

paint. Her tutorials are easy to follow, and her instructions are actually
quite fun – and funny! – as she tells it like
it is and keeps it real.

Colleen has a few boards devoted to organization – something all
of us crafty types can relate to, am I right?
Here’s just one of the boards, simply called Organizing:
