Designing a Home with Heart

The Cottage Shed ~ A Creative Journey

The Cottage Shed ~ A Creative Journey
An old gifted shed full of tools and equipment on the side of our yard just sat sadly crying to be given new life.  It felt similar to my inner creative struggle. Creative ruts are common, but they tend to cut deep when markets and shops change direction. I love our markets and shops, but they own their creative vibes and makers are along for the ride.  Sometimes their shifts and changes hurt your business, sometimes it helps.  Not knowing what to expect moving forward with markets and shops, led me to look at our little shed with new eyes.

Many of you have been curious as to what "simply intentional" means and looks like, so this year in my monthly newsletter/blog post I will be sharing three segments each month. The first will include tips on what a simply intentional lifestyle might look like, the second is how to curate simply intentional products into your decor, gift ideas, and such, and the third will cover some little insights into our tiny business and how we are being simply intentional with our brand.
