Birdz of a Feather
Birdz of a Feather (BOF) is the umbrella under which we write about DIY home and garden renos, crafts and gluten free recipes.
I love to feather the nest, so to speak, along with my husband – who is my ‘partner in grime’.
We’re like birds of a feather; I’m the yang to my husband’s yin (hence my blog name and logo). We’re both advocates of repurposing and recycling and often let our ‘finds’ inspire our DIY projects.
Together we’ve been working on our house for over a decade. We started blogging about our DIYs to inspire you to feather your own nest…. one room at a time!
Be sure to check out our craft projects, under the Craft Rehab category. Craft Rehab is about more than just an addiction to crafts: it aims to put sustainable crafting on the map with creative, fun and easy to accomplish projects that pack a wow factor. While some people eat tuna for lunch and then recycle the can, we dream up ways to breathe new life into throw away items:
Sustainability is about maintaining a balance and that’s exactly what I endeavour to do when I use what I have to craft decor items for our home. After all, good planets are hard to find!
While both BOF and Craft Rehab are doing a tiny part to maintain an ecological balance by saving the earth from excessive waste, they are also doing their part to maintain balance in us too: renovating and crafting are great stress busters! We hope you’ll try a project or two from our site to find that out for yourself!
The newest addition under the Birdz of a Feather umbrella is our recipe category, ‘The Unknown Chef‘, spearheaded by my husband. Although my husband would have become a chef years ago when he went back to school to get his chef’s certificate, he remains a hobby cook – no one trusts a skinny chef :). All recipes featured on The Unknown Chef are gluten-free.
