Renewed Upon a Dream
My blog is about my efforts in renewing my environment in my home. I do this through various crafts, furniture builds, refinishes, and arrangements. I have a long never ending list of DIY projects to keep myself occupied!

Crochet Along with Habitual Homebody
- Published on Friday, 29 March 2013
Authors: Sarah CrawfordI've had a super crazy-busy-stressful week this past week at work. So glad it's finally Friday. This week was implementation week of a new database system that I've been working on developing with our programers for the past year. We transferred all of our data into the new system on Wednesday & have...
Bring on the Warm Weather! Spring Floral Wreath
- Published on Tuesday, 26 March 2013
Authors: Sarah CrawfordI finally went ahead & made my spring wreath for this year over this past weekend. I'd been putting it off because it didn't FEEL like spring... but since it now IS supposed to be spring, I figured it was acceptable.
I'd been really wanting to make a big full floral wreath for this year, but I wasn't sure how to do...

It's like the day instantly improves! It's even better when you aren't exactly expecting that box. It's kinda a wait, what could this BE!?!?! kind of...
Our Drippy Shower Drama
- Published on Tuesday, 19 March 2013
Authors: Sarah CrawfordWhen we moved to our new place, there was only one thing that was really bugging me enough that I felt we had to make a move to fix it asap. Our leaking showerhead in the master bathroom.
Our shower was dripping at a rate of about a drip per second & it was sooo stinkin' loud when we were trying to sleep in the...
What's in my Toolbox? Tools I Use for Bookbinding
- Published on Monday, 18 March 2013
Authors: Sarah CrawfordIf you don't know, bookbinding requires a ton of tools. Yes, a ton. Well, I guess it depends on what kind of books your binding, but I have a lot of tools that I use regularly in my business. Some are things you may have laying around your house already, especially if you're a regular crafter. But...
A Peachy Spring Cowl
- Published on Friday, 15 March 2013
Authors: Sarah CrawfordIs it warming up here in the mitten? Uh... not really... well... some days. The other day it was sunny, then cloudy, then blizzard-ing, then sunny again all in a matter of 8 hours. But it is a teeny tiny bit warmer on average I think. It's just sporadic. We're not quite to this point yet, but...
