Homemade Holidays

First, I hope you all had a Merry Christmas. I didn’t get a chance this year to do a post to wish everyone a happy holiday season. I was once again spending most of my time in the shop. Though, Kurt did make sure that I spent a little more time enjoying the holidays watching…

Lazy Days

After a busy summer of landscaping, growing food and doing our best to enjoy the yard when the temperatures were manageable, I flew into a fall full of shop work in preparation for our first craft fair. Since the craft fair, I have taken a little bit of a break, which unfortunately, also resulted in…

Kraftwerks

After having our little woodworking (and more) shop for just over a year, we finally got to attend our first in-person craft fair. We did a virtual one last year, but it is very different than the in-person version, and we were really excited for the opportunity. For the last month and a bit, I…

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas

Thank you to everyone who has followed along on our adventure in landscaping, woodworking, baking, jam-making and whatever other fun things we decide to post about on this blog. We wish everyone a happy holiday, in whatever form or holiday you observe. Our Christmas this year has been quiet but festive with lots of FaceTime…

Baubles

I was prepared for Christmas this year…or so I thought. I was lucky enough to get most of my shopping done by the end of November, visiting local shops before COVID came roaring back and made it uncomfortable to be in busy places again. I was feeling good about the gift plans I had. Suddenly,…

You Serious Clark?

When we were young, a family moved in next door to us who also had children the same age as my sister and I. Those neighbours are now family, and although we have all moved to new homes and even cities, we have a holiday tradition together, which is to get together to eat lots…

Howl-idays Shadow Box

I have been looking at new projects to do in my shop, with a long list of ideas I have curated. Before I could get into those, I had one more advent calendar I had to make (I promise this post is not about another advent calendar!). It is an advent calendar for dogs, and…

Shop the Halls

I recently shared about my dad and I starting an Etsy shop and all the fun we were having building items. Advent calendars seem to be the item that I have spent most of the last couple months making. I believe I am now up to 11 calendars, with a 12th in mind. I am…

‘Tis the Season

After such a busy summer of sharing our yard landscaping progress with you, we have been quite the slackers with posts for the fall and winter. Unfortunately, not a lot of work that we can get done in the yard with the ground frozen solid and the temperatures below freezing. But that is ok, I…
