Portland Home & Home Decor Blogs
Adventures in Dressmaking is now Create/Enjoy. By Suzannah, lover of sewing, room-creating in my new house, cooking quality food, and de-stressing. Also a recovering former vegan and vegetarian, now healing with a nuterient-dense real food diet, and lifter of heavy things. Sewing book coming out in May 2015!
I’ve been sewing and crafting for as long as I can remember. If there’s a technique I haven’t tried, it’s probably on my wish list. At my blog, Crafty Staci, I share beginner-friendly craft and sewing tutorials, simple recipes, links to fun things I find elsewhere and my successful, and sometimes not-so-successful, attempts at expressing my own creativity. I find that people who haven’t tried it before are occasionally hesitant to take that first step into making things. I try to guide and inspire them to jump in and not be afraid to make mistakes along the way. I hope to encourage others to create and keep handmade alive and well.
The field of interior design envelops many different facets of an environment aside from the scale, color, and form of decorating. At Hearthstone Interior Design, we use a variety of supplemental tools to help our clients understand their design wants and challenges. We blend in principles from fields such as environmental psychology, divine proportion, neuropsychology, and feng shui in order to seek out environmental imbalances and address them organically in our recommendations. We believe that design solutions should enhance the quality of life and culture of the people who live with them every day. We want our clients to love every tailored piece of sanctuary that we craft for them.
Do you enjoy finding something — a piece of jewelry, an accessory or home decor item — something, that so perfectly captures who you are and reflects your uniqueness to the world? Imagine discovering the story behind its creation — the story of the artist and how their experiences inspired that piece you’ve now come to treasure. Now, you own not just another item but a unique piece with a story, and a deeper appreciation of your find.
Join us on a journey to discover limited edition goods that express your individuality, uncover the inspiration behind its design and support our community. And if you are a local artisan passionate about your craft, we invite you to join us as a designer. We would love to share your story and designs.

I grew up in Johnstown, Pennsylvania watching my mom sew and admiring all hand crafted items. When my three children (all born in Johnstown– and one working at Google today) were young, the friend who watched my children, Yvonne, hand quilted beautifully pieced quilts at her home. With each visit, Yvonne’s quilting skills captured my interest. Over time, I picked up the basic quilt piecing skills and practiced hand quilting, while working on a college degree at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown, pursuing part time work, student teaching, and raising my children.
My family and I moved to Keizer, Oregon 20 years ago.
Currently, I work out of a quilt studio and a sewing cabin on my property. I love working with fabric, especially antique fabric and antique quilt tops. Hand quilting, tying quilts, and working with talented machine quilters, I have personal projects I work on, as well as commissioned quilts for clients.
I am an educator who has taught quilt classes, middle school and high school students, English as a Second Language, a Certified Spiritual Director with a Master’s Degree from George Fox Evangelical Seminary, a photographer, a writer, and a speaker at retreats and special events.
My family and I live in Keizer, Oregon, USA

We’re Sara and Hanna; two mothers with a love for learning, experimenting and making the most of everyday…did we mention we’re also twins! Since we were young girls the need to create was ever present; from re-arranging our bedroom furniture on a weekly basis, sewing a costume for an imaginary game, to building a castle out of cardboard and paper. As we’ve grown to become homemakers and mothers, our passion for learning and crafting continues to burn strong and has expanded in many different areas. While our separate lives have us living 830 miles part, this Blog is a place for us to join our creative minds together again.
