My blog mantra is Frugal Living, Easy Recipes and that is how we live our lives. I selected Intelligent Domestications for my blog name because I believe everything is domestic and we all need to make intelligent decisions. I try to always keep those factors in mind with all of my homemaking projects.
2017 was different for us because we made the bold decision to sell our home of 17 years and move thirty miles away! That process began in the spring and kept us occupied until late summer when we were settling into our new home. I spent a great deal of time keeping my home clean for views, planting and tending to flowers for that first impression and mostly packing for the move. It was a joy to find those projects were among our most popular!
Counting down from the 10th to the first most popular Homemaking Projects we shared in 2017, let’s get to it.
To my pleasant surprise, one of my first seasonal free printables was a success! It is our Spring Subway Art. Thank you! Grab yours, it’s free and great for home or office.
Americana was my theme when redecorating our front porch to create an inviting entrance for potential buyers. These DIY Mason Jar Lid Coasters were among my projects.
Do you love finding fun items at the thrift store and then creating something new? As a member of a monthly upcycle challenge group, I get to do that once a month! This Two Tier Tray is one of my favorite projects!
Oh how I love planting flowers! When I was offered the opportunity to share a Made in the USA skin care with SPF 30, I jumped at it! Please be sure to apply sunscreen prior to yard work! I do still love my Block Island products.
