to celebrate the publication of my new book


Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.

This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.

The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.

Printing on Walls with Foam Stamps - A New Video with Kristin Nicholas on Houzz.com

When Rick and his crew were here from Houzz.com in May for the video shoot of our farmhouse and family, he asked me if I would demonstrate one of my decorative painting techniques for a video tutorial. I chose the Stairwell above which was one of the favorite photos of Houzz readers. 

This technique doesn't need fancy equipment and can be done in less than a couple of hours. 

The video doesn't have an embed code that I can figure out and it isn't on YouTube. If you would like to watch it, click on over to this page. You will find the HOW TO STAMP VIDEO just below the main video. Just click on it and you will be able to watch it.  

And just so you know, it took me over 10 tries for the ending line! I can't believe how lived in my studio is looking right now. So different from when I moved into it. Good messy. Lots of creative vibes floating around the space.

I love hearing about your life on the Farm. I was born a city girl, so this is another side of life that is so interesting to me. I am a very creative person myself, but so different from you. You inspire me. Keep up the great work. Nanci
