I love having a covered front porch on this 1920′s craftsman house and have been planning for a while to update it with fresh paint and some decor. I feel that porches and decks can be extended living space and enjoyed at least part of the year here in rainy Portland and that is how… Read more.
Along with my Paper Wedding Craft video series that was filmed by Creativebug, they also did a sweet little “Meet Lia” clip that I wanted to share with you here today. Their team is so talented and I love the way they tell a bit of my story here in this video. Come take a… Read more.
This project is an oldie but goodie! I posted this basket a few years ago on my former blog and have seen it republished on other many websites and in several magazines. Last year I shared how to make a smaller version of this basket, which is also cute and has a brilliant method for… Read more.
If you have followed my blog for a while, you know that I love to make my own art to decorate my home. One of my favorite pieces is this teal and green modern triangle piece that I made last year. When I decided to infuse my living room with plum this last fall, I… Read more.
A few months ago at the beginning of the Fall season, I decided to try something odd. Okay, maybe even crazy. I decided to switch my beautiful cool tone teal and green living room accents and accessories to warm purples and plums for the winter months. Did I regress back to a purple loving teenage… Read more.
Happy Friday! As promised, I am in sharing the next room in my home tour. . . the dining room. This room is in the heart of the home, as it should be. It is flanked by the living room and kitchen, which together make one large great room. This room has many new things… Read more.

Happy Home Tour Wednesday! I am excited to tour of my studio space with you today. The photo above is the exact view that I see from my office desk. This room is jam packed with photo props, craft materials, sewing projects and everything I need to create my daily posts. It is organized chaos,… Read more.
The most used rooms in my house are the office and studio. I will be showing the actual studio in the next post, but since the two rooms are joined I will call it a part 1 and 2. Truthfully, this may be the nicest office I have ever worked in and primarily because I… Read more.
Here we are, it is Wednesday again, which means it is time for another room in my home tour. This week due to my deadline filled schedule, I have picked the smallest room in the house. . . the hallway. This room has just one wall, the wall I am showcasing without a door. It… Read more.
The second room in my home tour after the entryway, is the living room. If you saw my loft tour from this last March you will recognize pretty much everything in this room. The only new pieces are a few white vessels and the Smith & Hawken wreath over the fireplace. I will share the… Read more.
Welcome (or should I say “wulcom”) to the first of my home tour series. I have received many emails and comments from you all asking when I am going to show you the interiors of the new home. I moved from my downtown loft (see tour here) into a craftsman style house just last April… Read more.
When I moved into this adorable house a few months ago, I was excited to once again have a fireplace as the center focus of my living room. As spring is turning into summer the question arises. . . what to do with the inside of the fireplace as it lays dormant for the season…. Read more.
