It’s less than a month before Christmas!
This past summer, I donated and threw out nearly all my Christmas decorations, including my cute little Christmas tree.

My first real DIY project was a messy one. It’s not quite done, but I’m posting a preview today anyway.
I bought a dining set for $60 on Kijiji. (By the way, I have had far more success selling my own furniture on Kijiji than on Craigslist.) It was an awesome deal for a table and four chairs, but the catch was that they sorely needed some TLC. The table top was well-worn after 15 years of

I have decided to start blogging. After months and months of reading other people’s blogs, I’m finally writing my own. No guarantees as to how often I’ll post, though.
I’m going to blog about things I love. My main focus will be my DIY projects and musings on home design and decor, since that’s what I enjoy reading about the most.

So, “Hello world!”–I’m Cheryl Claudine. Nice to meet you.
