Welcome to the creative home of artist and maker Charlotte Lyons.

good things update


The Home Companion Workshop site has been updated with a teacher and guest panelist list.

You will LOVE the roster! If you didn't have it marked down as your spring getaway, write it down today in big, bold letters.

Also, when you are out at the bookstore, the new magazine GreenCraft is on sale now. I have an article in there and the whole magazine is full of brilliant recycling projects that turn ordinary things into beautiful accessories.

Amanda's new book Handmade Home is also newly released. More good ideas for repurposing what you already have. I'll be back with a special post and a giveaway for that in a day or so.

And I was so happy to see that Craft Hope has a new healing project. We'll be making sock monkeys here in early September for their deadline. Still time to sign up- they have a tutorial to guide you step by step.

In the meantime, I've got a wedding to work on!

Just placed my flower order .... we're doing all the arrangements with friends. Yay! (and yikes!)
