Hi everyone!! *waves* I’m so excited to be swapping today with Connie! My name is Rachael, and I write a home and entertaining blog called Lovely Crafty Home. I’m an ex engineer turned blogger and housewife extraordinaire :)

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!

 

At Lovely Crafty Home, you can find both large and small projects-from making monogram art

…to tiling a backsplash.

 

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

 

…or sometimes I get a little crazy and end up with Christmas stockings.

 

Some of my absolute favorite projects have been the most time consuming (isn’t that always the case?!), like this book page wreath above the board and batten.

 

…and Pottery Barn Knock Off canvas.

 

Probably the coolest thing I’ve been working on is the removal of the upstairs carpet (including the stairs) and replacing it with a brown paper flooring technique.

 

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 Connie for swapping with me!
