Let me first say thank you for popping over, it is always fun to have visitors.
As the title says, I am a crafty (or rather crafting) Druid living in the beautiful Welsh Borders. This year is a big new start for me, my husband and 3 sort of grown up kids. My eldest has started university and my other two are pretty independent so hubby and I have some independence for the first time in over two decades. What did we decide to do with that freedom? Buy a house, that needs extensive renovations, on a tight budget.
I have always lived in rented accomodation where magnolia walls, white bathroom tiles, generic kitchens and beige carpets are a standard feature. You can’t do anything, change anything, it is so frustrating to live in a monochrome box when you want to splash the rainbow across the ceiling.
So we have moved in, having knocked down a couple of walls and removed some doors ( I dislike doors!) and now I want to make it ours. I want to do as much of the work as possible myself using crafting and diy skills I have developed over the years. I want my first owned home to be a reflection of us rather than a national retail chain. I also want it to work in harmony with my Druid beliefs and lifestyle. I want a haven.
Beltane is just a couple of days away and that seemed a good time to begin this journey of development and personalisation. Our first project, a herb wheel in the garden, but that will be another post!
I hope you will join me on this journey, please feel free to contact me, advice and comments are always welcome.
