Pretty Crafty Home

This is a project I started in 2012 because I wanted my home to look better, feel cosier and reflect my crafty side and I invited you all to join me too.

It was all about  doing something crafty to improve your home, make it a more pleasurable environment to be in and look at.  If you could thrift and recycle your way there - so much the better!

Want to join in?
I'm afraid the 'official' sign up period for this project has ended, so there's no-where to join up now.  But, if you're anything like me and improving your home is a constant task or, if you want to get your own Pretty Crafty Home underway, then feel free to use the posts below to get you started.

You can also still grab a button from below and share pictures in the Flickr PCH Group, which remains open.

Pertinent Posts
To help keep the motivation going, I gave each month a different focus.  Here's the relevant posts if you'd like to check back on what I got up to.
