I'm so glad you've stopped by for a visit. My name is Angela and this is my little corner of the virtual world where I hang out with my family and the Resident Quilt Inspectors (the furry ones on the right).
I turned 50 in 2019 and I’ve been on a journey of self-discovery. Before then, I had always felt like I was caught between two worlds — a world of creativity and a world of simplicity. I wanted to simplicity of a minimalist life, but not the empty, sterile feeling. I wanted the expressiveness and fun of a creative life, but not the visual and mental overwhelm. I felt like I NEEDED minimalism but I also NEEDED creativity. I was always stuck because I believed I couldn’t have both.
I was wrong.
When my life started unraveling, I started renovating. Not just my home and my garden but my entire life. My business, my mind, my schedule, my calendar… every single thing. And this is what I found out:
We CAN have a sweet, simple life.
Right here, right now. No matter what.
We CAN live a creative life while embracing simplicity.
We CAN find our dream home in the house we live in.
We CAN find meaning, purpose and joy in our lives.
You are not alone.
I am finding this path and you can join me.
I haven’t figured it all out yet, but I’m working on it and I’ve got a lot to share. From practical projects and DIY derring-do all the way to inspiration and sharing, everything I’ve discovered and continue to discover is here to share with you.
