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!
Whimseybox Calendar for the New Year

Authors: Renewed Upon a DreamIt's a brand new year! That requires, a brand new calendar! It was my good luck that what I received in my most recent Whimseybox was just that, a cute little calendar & stamping materials to design my own.

Authors: Renewed Upon a DreamThis year has been a crazy one in my life. Crazy busy. Having 3 jobs will do that to you.

Authors: Renewed Upon a DreamLast year, I did a post in which I talked about the 6 best things that had happened to me that year. I figured I'd come up with a list of bests from this year too. This year's list is quite a bit different than last year's though. There haven't been as many big moments, but many more smaller, great...
Crochet Slippers - I Made Too Many.... Naaaaa!
- Published on Wednesday, 26 December 2012
Authors: Renewed Upon a DreamMaybe I've told you this before, maybe not, but I keep my house cold. We live in the cold midwest, where it's currently snowing - as I type - and I have the heat set to 65. This, by the way, is a major increase in temperature that I used to keep it at. Last year, we increased the heat for when we were...

WhimseyBox Gift Tags

Authors: Renewed Upon a DreamI recently signed up for this thing called WhimseyBox. Have you heard of this? It's a lot like Birchbox in that they send you a box every month full of goodies, but this box is full of crafting goodies. Enough materials to make a great project every month.

Authors: Renewed Upon a DreamI've been on a bit of a roll lately. When I'm not binding books, I've been crocheting. Maybe it's the cold weather that has rolled into Michigan & making me want to cozy up, I've just been crocheting non-stop lately!
I made a purple circle scarf first. I didn't use a pattern, just kinda went for...
A Great Time at DIYpsi!

Authors: Renewed Upon a DreamI have been working now 11 days in a row. So far this month, I have only had one day of not working. This is no where near the longest stretch of time I've worked every day. I know of at least one time this past year I did a stretch of 17 days in a row. As a result, I'm still super behind on...
