Sew Woodsy: Welcome!

Welcome!

After tons of badgering from all of our family and friends we've finally decided to start a part-time craft/home renovation blog! Don't expect daily blog posts like you get at Katie's Cucina, but do expect ton's of tutorials and creative ideas on ways to spruce up your home, save money, and make cool things! For those of you reading who do not know Jon and I in real life here is some background info about us! 


Katie: As most of you know Katie loves to cook, but when she's not cooking she's crafting! She's always had a love for crafts and in most recent years has had more time on her hands to free her creativity! In 2007/2008 while planning her wedding her crafty side was fully unleashed. After designing invitations, center pieces, memory candles, and more she knew after the wedding was done she would still want to work on crafty projects. After buying a home last year she started focusing more of her energy to home decor projects, and way's to inexpensively decorate her home. Many people have heard her say "I've got West Elm taste on a Wal*mart budget", and she stays true to that motto; constantly searching high and low to find the best deals and ways to make it not only inexpensive but better!

Jon: Amazing handy man really sums him  up! If it's broken he'll fix it--even if he has no clue how to use it! From generator motors to wooden benches he's the guy for you. Since buying a home in 2009 he has become self absorbed in home renovation projects, and has picked up yet another hobby... wood working. He borrowed a friends lathe and started spinning wood and acrylic pens, and aspires to start selling them online some day soon. He's also spun a wine stopper and hopes to start spinning bowls, pepper mills, and anything else the mind can think of! Jon also recently built a custom toy chest for his only nephew (stay tuned for a post)! He's intrigued by challenging projects and is a perfectionist too boot! 

Thanks for reading about us. Make sure you subscribe to our new blog, and stay tuned on the projects we will share with the world!

Wow, KATIE! First, it's good to see you and your adorable DH. Second, WOW! You are so talented, more than just the kitchen which I have to tell you have been some of the recipes that have saved me here in Italy! I'm very excited about this blog and I'm adding it to my blog-roll, right now!
