Hi everyone!! *waves*
I’m so excited to be swapping today with Ami on AliLilly! Ami is a jack of all trades, from cooking to jewelry- so many creative things to read about! My name is Rachael, and I write a home and entertaining blog called Lovely Crafty Home
. I’m an ex engineer turned blogger and all around domestic goddess (yup, I said it).
My first born, Millie, and me.
I started writing LCH after we took our house off the market last year as a way to chronicle the changes I wanted to make. Once we decided to stay, I realized I could do a few things here and there to make our home more enjoyable for us and to perhaps help it sell better down the line. Since then, it’s been a great ride-learning new things and sharing them with you has been an amazing experience!
My husband Mike and I
At Lovely Crafty Home, you can find both large and small projects-from making monogram art
I dabble in a little bit of everything, learning as I go. Last year I learned to knit and opened up a baby shop called Babyfrog Designs
. I make custom clothes and accessories!
I also really enjoy sewing, a new skill for me in the past few months or so. If it’s square-ish, I will sew it! Like this jewelry clutch
Some of my absolute favorite projects have been the most time consuming, like this book page wreath
But the best part of blogging is meeting new creative people who inspire me everyday! I hope you will stop by and visit me sometime at Lovely Crafty Home
. I host a weekend linky party for you to share your awesome projects as well!
Thank you so much Ami for swapping with me!
One day after walking home from the park, Alie stopped and was just staring at this wreath on someone’s door. It looked like thin wood hearts forming a circle. I told her “Come on baby, Momma can make you one.” So, I made her one.
I used foam in red and purple. I traced a heart on a piece of paper and then used the heart as a stencil for the foam. I cut out the hearts from the foam and then I glued the foam hearts onto a circle I cut from cardboard.
While hot gluing the hearts to the cardboard I made a “boo-boo” I pulled the glue off after it tried but as you can see, it messed up my heart.
SO, I made a bunch of little ribbon rosettes and glued them onto the hearts. SUCCESSFULLY covering up my boo-boo!
I did all this while Alie napped too. When she woke up and saw it she stared at it just like the other wreath. I asked her what she thought and she said “Oh iss-oh cute!!” The sweetest compliment ever!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
