DIY Craft Room Storage | Spectacular Summer Blog Hop #10

Where was this post back in March when I was making over my craft space?? For today’s Spectacular Summer Blog Hop, Ash and Eileen of Just Measuring Up built THE BEST AND EASIEST DIY CRAFT STORAGE!!!! I love how they planned and built it, and the colours they chose are bright and creative. SUCH a great craft space makeover. I wish I’d seen this before I did my makeover because I could definitely have used their FREE downloadable plans. Sigh…

See what I mean about the colours??? I love the purple, blue, and white palette.

Easy Huminta Corn Cake | Spectacular Summer Blog Hop #9

I love to taste-test new recipes, particularly ones that hail from culinary cultures other than my own, so today’s post from Leslie at From Playdates to Parties is right up my alley! Her recipe for a simple, easy Huminta sounds absolutely delicious. What is Huminta, you ask? Well, I didn’t know either, but after reading Leslie’s recipe, I’m really looking forward to adding this Bolivian corn cake to my arsenal. It is choc full of spices and just sounds so much more interesting than your run-of-the-mill corn bread or cake.

Maple Leaf String Art | Canada Day Crafts | Spectacular Summer Blog Hop #8

O Canada! We’re so excited to be celebrating 150 years of you! In honour of our country’s 150th birthday, I thought it would be fun to work on some Canada Day crafts, so off I went to my crafty stash. Just a few minutes later, I had whipped up a fun and simple little piece of string art in the form of Canada’s emblem: the maple leaf. Let me show you how I created this jaunty addition to my Canada Day decor. 

I’m also one of the token Canadians in our Spectacular Summer Blog Hop group, so now – after me posting all those Fourth of July ideas – it’s their turn to post something about Canada Day! 😉
