Making a Pretty Crafty Home

I have just found a wonderful new (to me) blog and fabulous project to go with it! The blog is called Sandra's Cherry Heart.  Doesn't the name alone just make you smile? The project is called Pretty Crafty Home.  Click here if you wish to take part.

The project is basically about making your home prettier and decluttered by crafting and being frugal.  I feel like this was created with my name on it.  The five ideas toward making a Pretty Crafty Home are:

1.  Tidy, tidy, tidy and clean, clean clean!
2.  If it has to live here, it should be pretty.
3.  If I don't like how it looks, and I can change it, I will.
4.  Thrift, re-use and recycling are my watch words.
5.  Crafting is king!

See, a project that I can so completely relate to and jump on board with! Especially as we live in a rented property and I can't do things like paint and seriously remodel - crafting and re/upcycling are right up my alley.  So, I imagine there will be a lot of crochet going into prettifyong our home.  Plus, I've rea;;y been wanting to learn to sew and this seems like a perfect reason to finally do it! I just have to get over being afraid to actually purchase the seing machine.

I have many ideas running through my head.  I'll let you know which is the first for our Pretty Crafty Home!
