Do it Yourself
When people ask how long I’ve been making things, it’s nearly impossible for me to answer. Since I was little, I’ve always been creative and playing around with different materials. In fact, so many features in my house started out as a DIY project. That’s why I like to share DIY projects, in the hopes that I can inspire readers to get their creative side out.
In my Home Adventures blog, I take you on my homeowner journey. It’s not just a great big to-do list! I also see my home as a big creative project. Back in the day, I swore up and down that I would never live in a raised ranch. Yet here I am, in my 1977 raised ranch. I like to think it’s like a giant canvas, both on the inside and outside!
Who is behind AllieCat Quilts & Crafts?
I have always loved crafting; so much of my work is in my home.
Welcome! Every piece I bring to the shop is a piece I already have somewhere in the house. When I am making, the items bring me joy and a sense of peace. Whether it was my dorm room in college or my first apartment, I’ve always made sure to hang curtains, frame photos, and decorate every space. Cozy and “homey” were always the first words people would say when they came into my living space. Because I love that feeling, I want to share it with you.
Like a lot of makers during the pandemic, I don’t have a dedicated maker space. I share my home with my spouse, daughter, and two cats. As such, my workshop was any open flat surface that can accommodate whatever project I am currently working on. I used the woodpile out back to hold my boards for measurement and I slice, dice, and chop under the deck. In the winter, I even used the den floor to glue boards when it’s close to zero degrees outside.
Today, I have a little shed and a lot more tools, but I still use every little bit of space in and out of the house. Winter is still cold and the shed isn’t heated, so you might just find me in the laundry room cutting out Easter bunnies!
All in all, no matter the size of your living space, there is always space for farmhouse home decor!
