Since I love repurposing and love maps, this is a natural fit for me. Finding inspiration for the best ways to use maps, especially vintage ones, has been a feast for the eyes. I've been seeing some nice old maps at my local antique markets lately...I'm getting very tempted.

I live far away from my nephew and nieces so I like to send them a little box of treats on Valentine's Day. I know I always loved getting something in the mail when I was a kid (ok, I still do) so I imagine they enjoy opening up the box to see what goodies are inside.

Are you in need of a little winter pick-me-up? I've been perusing Etsy and have come across some irresistible hand-made beauties that will help make our homes unique, warm and cozy so we can ride out the season with a smile on our faces. This is feel-good shopping friends, because we are ...

Thoughts on cleaning body, mind and home for 2015!
I don't know about you, but I've been having trouble getting into the groove since returning from holiday break. I heard a report recently that January is the month that sees a spike in depression, lack of energy, and what I call " the funk". I think I fell into that a little - not so much ...

I hope your year has been as wonderful as mine has been. Last year at this time I wrote about seeking contentment, and now I can say that I've found it in abundance. I worked on becoming still, mindful, and present in every moment. I grew in faith and in confidence that I am where I am supposed ...

Do you hate spending on store-bought cards as much as I do? Original and natural is much more interesting, isn't it? This year I've got four ideas for you for super-simple DIY home-made cards using natural or re-purposed materials, and a little creativity. The first uses a cedar tip secured with ...

Clients and friends all seem to be painting these days. Whether it's a kitchen makeover or full-on home renovation, many are looking for advice on paint colour and types. Regardless of colour or finish, for interior paint jobs I always strongly recommend no-VOC paint in order to reduce harmful ...

I don't post many recipes here, but this one had to be shared. Today I made these vegan (and easy!) oatmeal, almond, banana cups and oh my are they good. They're a little gooey-er than muffins, hence the name "cups", but work just as well for a quick snack. As well as being vegan, ...

I started meditating last year when I realized that I was getting too caught up in the rush of work, commuting, social media and trying to "be more" all the time. While it's still challenging a lot of the time, meditating lets me put a little space between my ego, with its constant thinking and ...

I believe that modern rustic style is actually becoming a classic style. It's simple, natural and eco-friendly, so will always have an innate appeal. Reclaimed barn board or other weathered wood is amazing in texture and interest, and when used in unexpected places - like a bathroom vanity - it ...

Need a last minute gift? Here's a guide to simple gifts that will make both giver and receiver feel great. Oh yeah, and our wonderful planet will thank you too. 
More and more I've been trying to consume less and do a lot more simplifying in my life. I even made gifts this year to cut down on purchasing. But there will still be people on your holiday gift list that you will want or need to buy something for. So, here is a guide to gifts that will make ...
