100dayproject

100 day project

So here goes ….I’m going do the #100dayproject. I listened to this podcast and then read this article and its time to give it a go! You have to commit to creating something everyday for 100 days. My project is ‘crafting with a toddler’ The plan is to minimise purchasing materials by using up the giant box of craft stuff I have been “saving” for 3 years.

Walk with the Windsors

This project was a collaboration between the Commonwealth walkway project, City of Fremantle local history and Fremantle Story.   This trail required substantial research compared to  previous trails I have developed for Fremantle Story.   The biggest challenge was finding a way to make visiting namesake streets and buildings more engaging while telling the story of Fremantles connection to the monarchy. I think we did a pretty amazing job since the City of Fremantle had the Mayor plugging the trail in the lead up to Megan and Harrys Wedding!  See for yourself at  http://www.fremantlestory.com.au/explore     Image credit: Fremantle Ports.

vintage record player

When we built our house there were a few pieces of vintage furniture from my grandparents house I wanted showcase in our home. This radiogram was a feature in my grandparents lounge room and I loved it. We were also considering purchasing art but I loved the idea of having record covers on display. After extensive pinterest research we discovered Ikea shoe storage boxes are perfect storing records and Ikea frames were the perfect size for record covers! We had a large plain wall above the stairs  but to create a record space there was much harder than you would think. We moved lights,  added a powerpoint, mounted the storage boxes and had difficult access to hang the frames! I’m really happy with how it turned out, what would have been a dead space in our house feels like another room. It was a quandary to source and decide what covers should go in the frames.  I picked up these records for $2 each to get the project rolling.  I’m still rummaging in record bins …

Girls bedroom

I wanted to create a girlie room but not your usual one covered in pink. It needed a statement wall that wouldn’t be too hard to change when she develops her own interests so I created a secret garden using fake flowers instead of bunting. I gave an existing bookcase a facelift using contact to create a multi functional ‘doll house’ for toy and book storage.  The shelves are large enough to accomodate different sized items since the types of toys she uses will evolve over the next few years. There’s all so a snuggly spot for reading stories that will eventually be her toddler bed.

Hilton Harvest

I have been working with this fantastic community group that runs an extensive gardening and community connection program….. off the back of a group of very passionate volunteers! I analysed their current funding and looked for areas to optimise income and presented a report with recommendations.  After further discussions we came up with the solution of creating a brochure that could be easily edited and printed in house to promote donations from business and regular users of the garden.
