How to DIY a simple Thanksgiving Gift

Aren't these the most adorable white gourds!  I purchased ours from our local garden center at West Coast Gardens in South Surrey, but you have to get these quickly because they sell out fast.

Simple DIY Thanksgiving Place Setting and Gift

We are giving ours as gifts to neighbours and teachers this year.  You can use our printable as gift tags too, or add to a bottle of wine as a hostess gift this Thanksgiving.  Easy, Simple and Quick!  That's how we like our craft projects.

What you need:

What next?

  1. Print this Printable on Kraft Paper (we purchased from our local Scrapbooking Store)
  2. Cut out your favs and whole punch the leaf
  3. Tie Jute through the leaf and around the stem of the gourd (you can get fancy and paint the stem Fusion Mineral Paint Metallics in Pale Gold)
  4. I placed ours on the cutest Farmhouse looking cutting board that I just adore.

Ready to Gift!  Quick, easy and painless.  Who are you thankful for?  Gift them a simple decor piece for their home.

Happy Decorating!

The Perfect Paint for DIY Success with Fusion Mineral Paint

There’s a new paint on the Homeworks Etc. shelves. It’s called Fusion™ Mineral Paint.

We are thrilled to bring this new product to our shelves and workshops! Not only is Fusion™ Mineral Paint a high-quality product available in practical sizes and a fantastic array of colours, but it also has a low environmental impact – specifically, this paint has zero VOCs! They are non-toxic, odourless, and have no ammonia or formaldehyde. And the bottom line is sweet, too – the prices are fair-market reasonable. What a find!

Fusion™ is an acrylic, water-based paint (not chalk-like) that delivers an exceptional matte finish. It is the perfect choice for the DIY projects offered at Homeworks Etc., and for the many décor projects you have awaiting at home. Once cured, this paint is highly durable, washable, water- and stain-resistant, and has an almost zero reflectance value (most desirable for the smoothest of finishes). You can also easily work with Fusion™ for distressing, another beautiful technique to complete a treasured home décor project. Its special formulation allows it to adhere to almost any surface, from wood to metal to glass – even to lacquered surfaces!

Home Décor with a Loving Touch

Family-Sign-Making.jpeg

Your home is your sanctuary. It’s your castle. It’s a special place of comfort and safety, and filled with love, joy, and laughter. It’s at times a haven in which to cuddle up and close off the world, and in other moments, it shines as an integral part of the neighbourhood - opening its doors to receive friends and family. And of course, we all want our home to look and feel beautiful, warm and welcoming. But shopping for charming embellishments to take your décor up a notch can get very expensive. Imagine using your own loving touch to transform your home into an exquisite place that garners ooohs and ahhhs when visitors cross the threshold. Even before they cross the threshold – you can stop them in their tracks by a bit of decorative flair on the front stoop!

DIY home décor is fun, exciting, and a wonderful low-budget option. It allows you the opportunity to infuse your (and your family’s) personality into your rooms. You have control over shaping your space into whatever you want it to be. You can let your imagination run wild…right onto your walls! And your family can contribute – by coming up with unique ideas (for example, children can contribute to fantastic makeover ideas for their bedrooms) or by rolling up their sleeves and working on projects with you.

Homemade décor is very personal, and can be the tipping point for transforming your house into your family home. It’s like baptizing your home with a river of personality and love!

If you’re interested in trying your hand at bringing handmade décor into your home, check out Homeworks Etc. for an array of DIY projects. Be prepared – once you start, you may find it hard to stop!

A Creative Full Day Retreat for You!

CReative-full-Day-Retreat.jpg

Fresh air and open windows, Spring cleaning, and a critical eye scouring the inside and outside of our homes…it’s time to get moving!

But wait. Are you ready for a bit of a Spring Fling?

How about combining a self-loving ‘me’ day with the opportunity to produce not one, not two, but three spectacular DIY projects to ramp up the charm in your home? Imagine spending a full day with friends – noshing, chatting, learning, laughing, and creating splendid home décor gems…and capping the day with a glass of wine to toast your beautiful new home finery!

All of this is possible and at your fingertips: Homeworks Etc. is offering a full-day creative retreat…a staycation!

Hockey Dreams

blog-hockey-dreams-cover-photo.png

My son's crazy obsession with hockey!

Erin Fraser, Fine Arts Photographer in the Lower Mainland, specializes in creating “edgy, dark but romantic” photos. Sifting through her online portfolio (http://www.efraserphoto.com/), one does indeed perceive an undercurrent of romance…each photo pulls the viewer into the emotion of the setting. And the outdoors plays a big role as a backdrop to human expression.

Along these same lines of capturing feeling in her photographs, Erin has combined her son’s obsession with hockey and her love of art and design – to fashion a room that makes Carden feel absolute joy!

Where did the idea for your son’s room transformation come from?

The design concept came from my son’s crazy obsession with hockey! I wanted to marry his love for hockey with my design tastes, to avoid having too much of a character-driven room. I loved the idea of having a classy/trendy sports theme.

homeworks-8

Did Carden have any specific requests?

Carden’s request was to have his dad’s pro jersey hanging on the wall, and he loved the idea of a hockey stick to hold his medals.

homeworks-10
homeworks-10
homeworks-16
homeworks-16

What does he love most about his room?

I’d say his favourite part of his room is being able to use the window seat as his display for favourite players. He’s also obsessed with the Patrick Kane doll, since he loves the Blackhawks.

homeworks-3

Oh! I should probably mention the random ring. That’s my husband’s card that's autographed with that ring. It’s the Kelly Cup ring that his team won when he was playing in the ECHL. Carden loves it because it’s his dads.

How did you learn about Homeworks Etc?

My relationship with Homeworks Etc began when I found the company (online) initially because of the hockey stick wall hanger! We followed each other on Instagram after that and I got to see the other fun sports-related design elements Jacqueline had in her store.

Inspiration: Stylish Gender Neutral Nurseries

Preparing for a new baby is an exciting time full of decisions both big and small. One of them is the nursery design. This can be fun and easy for some parents, and slightly stressful for others. Generally, though, picking a look for your little one's first bedroom is a treat. Many parents are choosing to be surprised by their child's gender. Others simply want a nursery that doesn't go in any obvious direction of very girly or boyish. Whatever the reason, a gender-neutral nursery is a great choice. Golden Glam

Golden Glam

Transitional Nursery by Los Angeles Architects & Building Designers Erinn V Design Group

Gender-neutral nurseries are usually in a white or grey color scheme in order to appeal to boy or girl. This warm gold example is a little more unexpected with very grown-up accents in an extremely popular metallic tone. Mixed metals in warm hues are trending for 2015, so it’s no surprise that this lovely nursery is utilizing the look. Perhaps the little one living here will be a trendsetter as well.

 

Star Light, Star Bright

Star Light Star Bright

Contemporary Nursery by Brooklyn Kids & Nursery SISSY+MARLEY

There is no question that white and light grey are serene in a bedroom. This darling nursery is calming and sweet with light grey star wallpaper and vintage toys and decor.

 

Vintage Charm

Vintage Charm

Transitional Nursery by Portland Interior Designers & Decorators Nifelle Design - Fine Interiors

Bringing in a little more color, this playful yellow nursery is filled with a great mix of collected items and books. The subtle spots on the curtains tie it all together. The custom shelving is a great way to incorporate the saved treasures from Mom and Dad's childhood.

 

Bold and Bright

Bold and Bright

Transitional Nursery by Scottsdale Interior Designers & Decorators J & J Design Group, LLC.

Who ever said gender-neutral had to be colorless? This nursery is anything but bland, with bright colors and bold pattern play. Baby will be stimulated by the design and can drift off for naps dreaming of taking flight with the lovely sparrows swooping around the wallpaper.

 

Globetrotting Tot

Globe Trotting

Eclectic Nursery by Dallas Interior Designers & Decorators Erika Everett Design

Teaching your baby about the great-big world around him or her is easy with a global-themed nursery. Easy to use for girls or boys, the room features a colorful vintage map and natural, cozy textures that any world-travelling explorer would love to come home to.

 

Crisp and Clean

Gender Neutral Crips and Clean Nurseries

Transitional Nursery by Calgary Architects & Building Designers Alykhan Velji Design

This last room is bright and cheerful with pops of sunny yellow that look fabulous with the cool grey neutrals. A modern mix of patterns brings excitement while the clean lines make the space calm and free of clutter. A comfy chair for Mom or Dad and beautiful zebra portrait complete this darling nursery.

 

Look at this time of countless choices with fondness. It is fleeting at best, and before you know it your little one will be here to cuddle and enjoy. Just go with your heart and remember to look at design through the eyes of a child and you’re sure to have a winning nursery style.

Wall Hooks for Nursery

Collection_Single_Hook.jpg

Wall hooks for the nursery can be so much fun.   I love the decorative touch wall hooks add to the decor of a baby's room.   The function tops it!    Hang clothes by the change table, towels after a bath, and baby bag packed and ready to go for the next days outing.  So versatile to hang beside the bed, closet or in that little space that you just don't know how to decorate.

Property Brothers making baby nursery design choices.

photo-3.jpg

Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott were in Vancouver filming episodes of their show Buying and Selling with the Property Brothers on W network and HGTV.  I first had the opportunity to meet them while on Mother's Day 2013.  What a treat!  Boy are these brothers ever tall.

Jacqueline De'Ath with Property Brothers

I was a pleasure to collaborate with them to include my nursery decor into one of their projects filmed in Season 3.

Homeworks Etc Designs Nursery Decor As seen on Property Brothers
Homeworks Etc Designs Nursery Decor As seen on Property Brothers

Property Brothers Episode 22 | Season 3  was about helping Kari & Boris.  Avid video gamers Boris and Kari are expecting a baby so it's time for better digs. But with their tiny condo already rented out, time is ticking. They want four bedrooms, a gourmet kitchen and baby nursery, plus a games room and space for Boris’ action figures. The Property Brothers come to the rescue helping them find a budget-friendly dream home that can be renovated on time.

With a budget that doesn't match the couple’s expectations, Drew and Jonathan struggle to sell the potential of a fixer-upper. The pressure is on, though, when a tough negotiation leaves less money for upgrades. Kari experiences arachnophobia during the demolition, and an unexpected plumbing issue throws more money down the drain. Boris ups the budget with unplanned technical demands but must then make a difficult decision in order to pay for them. Design choices in the nursery are clearer after Kari's ultrasound, despite Jonathan's attempts to influence the baby naming. And Kari's patience wears thin when they face costly delays as Jonathan races to complete the job before baby arrives.

Homeworks Etc wood letters create a beautiful collage that is not only decorative, but can serve as a learning tool (seek and find) for when baby grows up and starts to recite the alphabet.  Letters can also be used to write your child's name.  Even Jon and Drew love to see their names on the wall.

When decorating your nursery, you should keep style and design in mind as well as function too.  Staying organized in the baby nursery is essential, especially when baby is on the change table.  Hanging clothes and keeping baby's essentials just a touch away is not only handy but a safe way to stay organized. This neutral octopus wall hook design from Homeworks Etc does just that in this nursery design.

{SHOP Nursery wood letters} Available in white, espresso, lowercase and capital letters. Can you believe the entire alphabet is in this collage?
