Late last year, I noticed that one of my favorite blogs (Petticoat Junktion) was doing a giveaway of “Craft Stuff”. She had assembled several boxes full of craft supplies and other bits from her workshop. That’s when it dawned on me…I SHOULD DO THE SAME THING IN JANUARY!
In December of 2013, I had the somewhat rash idea to start a blog. After years of renting and diligently saving our pennies, we moved into our first home, and the desire to paint and create and mold this house was overwhelming for me- in a good, but unmanageable way. I wanted a platform to document my new house projects-successes and failures- in typical Sarah fashion: Silly, honest, with a little bit of sass.

His enthusiastic response assured me that doing so was long overdue- and he has remained my biggest cheerleader throughout this life-changing year.Read more ›
I’ll be the first to admit- I’m not a good photographer. In fact, some circles might consider me a HORRIBLE photographer. And my camera? Well, it’s my phone…which ironically has a better camera than my now out-dated point-and-shoot Nikon.

Did you know that Etsy hosts a worldwide Craft Party every year? This was the first time I attended and I had an absolute BLAST! I attended the one hosted by the South Carolina Etsy Team and this year’s theme was “Recapture: Bring New Meaning to Old Photographs”. Attendees were asked to find a special photograph, and then, with needle and embroidery thread or paint and pen, transform that old photo into a new handmade piece of art.Read more ›
The name “Sadie Seasongoods” was derived from the two main branches of my family tree. Sadie is a maternal great-grandmother, with her parents hailing from Wales. Seasongood was the maiden name of a paternal great-grandmother (Gladys), of Berrien County, Michigan. Both Sadie and Gladys died long before I was born, but I’ve always loved their names, ever since I was a child.Read more ›
