About Laurie

Hello Friend!!

I’m so glad you’re here!

My name is Laurie. I’ve been married for 20 something years. I have a son in college and a daughter in high school. I’m a stay at home mom and general manager of this place I call home. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ve been a blogger on and off for 7 years. As many of you know, blogging is something you either want to do, or don’t. During the time I had my “don’t” moments, I opened up a booth at an antique store and managed that for 3 or so years. That gave me a great opportunity to create, re-purpose, refinish a lot of stuff to sell. Not to mention always be on an antique and vintage finding mission. Oodles of fun! Now it’s time to blog again.

Towards the end of last year, my BFF and I opened up an Etsy store called 2 Stinkin’ Cute Miniatures. We make miniature furniture and accessories, in 1:12 scale, for dollhouses and roomboxes. It’s probably one of my most favorite things to do. It’s perfect for us really. We are both creative and this give us an opportunity to make something unique without having to spend money on life size furniture to refinish or re-purpose!

As you can probably tell, I’m a “Multi-Crafter”. I don’t stick to just one thing. My mind is always going, so you will see all kinds of project here, from refinishing, repurposing, wood projects, creating miniatures, etc. Crafting isn’t just paper and scissors my friends. It’s about getting all that creativity out of your head and into the world. If you can Dream It, you can Create it! No Rules!
