About Me

Just a little info about me:  My name is ShabbyLisaW.

I have loved crafting my whole life (except maybe sewing).  My mom was a crafter, and passed her love of crafting on to me.  I started this blog a few years back when I was heavily into scrapbooking and card-making.  Sadly I don’t do much of either anymore, but do hope to pick it back up in the future.

Recently my passion has changed to decorating and repurposing.  I have always been into antiques/vintage/collectibles, often asking for these types of items for gifts starting in my teens.  I grew up in a very sentimental family, and it is hard to get rid of items that I grew up with.  As such, I have soooo many treasures from my great-grandparents, grandparents and on down the line.

Other interests include photography (I’m a photographer wannabe) and cooking.  I also love to plan and throw parties (for myself…not for others).  I really have fun dreaming up themes and creating parties around that theme.

I live outside the city in a small subdivision surrounded by farms.  We live on 3 1/2 acres.  Our yard would be a gardeners paradise, if only we liked to garden.  Perhaps another hobby I will learn to love once I have more time.

Thank you for popping by and saying “hi”!

    Glad you stopped by to see the concrete counter tops. I think I can rent the Hubby out. LOL Nothing would surprise him, I am always getting him into my DIY projects, maybe I could just slip it in on him, along with all my other crazy ideas without him noticing. LOL
    Have a Great Night

    Hi Lisa, thank you for your blog. It truly is inspiring. I too love to home improve and pick up projects. One time my mother mentioned she needed new windows. Her house was built in the 60’s and had old wooden window frames…you know the 9 light, single pane, perfect for pictures, decorating windows. So between she and I, we decided to do it ourselves and was a success. Since then, i’ve put in sub floors, hung gutters, repalced garbage disposals and then some. I’ve never thought about blogging about it but really makes sense. With the economy crisis, we are becoming more and more self sufficient. Thank you for inspiring me to do the same.
