About Craft Rehab

Birdz of a Feather ~ Craft Rehab (Craft Rehab) is an offshoot of our blog ‘Birdz of a Feather’ which I started to showcase reno projects with my ‘partner in grime’. In 2016, Hubs built me a craft studio in our basement. It was definitely a case of ‘if he builds it, she will craft’!  Craft Rehab has been all about the sustainable crafts that have come out of my craft studio since then. While some people eat tuna for lunch and then recycle the tin, I eat tuna for lunch and dream up ways to breathe new life into it.

Craft Rehab is doing its tiny part to maintain an ecological balance by saving the earth from excessive waste, but it’s also doing its part to maintain balance in me too: crafting is a great stress buster!

Are you ready to get your craft mojo on? Here are a few of our favourites!

Kayla Pillow – Crochet for a Cure

Mom taught me how to crochet when I was six. She instilled in me a love of everything DIY and craft. So it’s come full circle: we’re donating 100% of all pattern sales to benefit Alzheimers in memory of our moms!
