About

Hi! I’m Laura; designer and maker of joyfully colourful wool felt creations and I blog about tips and DIYs to help you lead your best crafty life!  

My most popular posts include this DIY Toothbrush Travel Wrap and How to Create Pins for Etsy Listings.

I have two boys, aged 7 & 5 who challenge me every day in all the ways.  Motherhood for me has been a journey of learning how to accept people (and myself) for everything that they are.  My boys are hilarious old souls with the biggest hearts and most beautiful smiles. We live by the ocean with my incredible husband in beautiful Nova Scotia, Canada.

The things that I love can not be contained in a single list.  But to sum up: earl grey tea, dark chocolate, salty sea air, big belly laughs, toddler tickle giggles, avoiding exercise, home goods stores and never ever giving up.

The Yellow Birdhouse is my handmade business featuring items made with high quality wool-blend felt.  I mainly make floral and nautical inspired home decor and accessories for children, but I’ve made a number of unique custom requests as well!

You’ll also find on The Yellow Birdhouse Blog some fun DIY projects as well as tips and tricks for running a creative business. There are loads of great free downloads on the Freebies page!

If you’d like to know exactly how I photograph my handmade items for my shop, using only my phone, check out the big helpful ebook I wrote on the subject!
