This is a project I started in 2012 because I wanted my home to look better, feel cosier and reflect my crafty side and I invited you all to join me too.
It was all about doing something crafty to improve your home, make it a more pleasurable environment to be in and look at. If you could thrift and recycle your way there - so much the better!
You can also still grab a button from below and share pictures in the Flickr PCH Group, which remains open.
To help keep the motivation going, I gave each month a different focus. Here's the relevant posts if you'd like to check back on what I got up to.
January - Just keep cleaning
Tips on getting the home ship shape and spic and span.
February - Neat and Tidy
Tips on de-cluttering, keeping the good and getting rid of the bad.
March - The Hit List
Time to make plans and draw up a list of jobs.
April - Putting it off?
Targeting jobs we don't want to do, but we do want done.
May - Bring in the spring
Treat yourself to a lovely, crafty, spring related project for your home.
June - Something for nothing
Creating something for nothing, or next to nothing!
July - Rest and reconsider
With summer and school holidays upon us, lets take a break and reconsider what still needs to be done.
September - Getting back on track
Enough resting! Time to start making pretty again.
October - It's a cover-up!
