DIY Embroidery Top Wooden Stool

We wanted to a customize and make our own DIY wooden stool with a soft cushion top that can be used as an extra seating, a table, or a footstool. The colours we used are inspired by our love for Moroccan and Bohemian designs and colours. We feel this gives the punch of colour we want to make the interior of our home feel brighter even during the long winter seasons!

Embroidered Crazy Patchwork

embroidered crazy patchwork
I have been working on a crazy patchwork surface to use it as the cover for a DIY stool we are working on. For this patchwork surface, I used the Crazy Patchwork method that uses random shapes of cloth attached together. Crazy patchwork is a lot of fun to do, as we do not have to cut each material using a pattern or measurement.

I thoroughly enjoyed doing this wall display on an old glass picture frame. Prior to starting the project, I cleaned the glass with rubbing alcohol. Once the surface air dried, I drew a Mandala themed design using a black DecoArt Glass paint marker

In this new series, artists and hobbyists are able to learn a variety of interesting art topics, including manga, hand-lettering, and sketching, in a small and portable format.

Microsoft Brings inclusivity into Canadian classrooms

I believe that every one of us is unique in every way, and with opportunities we can all strive to do our best and feel proud of ourselves. February is Inclusive Education Month in Canada and Microsoft is working with partners like Fair Chance Leaning to bring inclusive learning tools to the classroom. They want to highlight how a classroom that includes technology can strengthen inclusivity and ensure children, of all learning abilities, are set-up for success.
