Hello my name is Wanda.

Welcome to It’s A Wandaful Thing.


This is the place where I blog about all the things I love to make, bake and decorate. I am also an avid DIYer, I’d rather make it than buy it and anything I DIY so can you. I hope you find something I write about of interest to you.

I sometimes write about the stuff that pops in my head :). I will try to keep my primary focus on making, baking, decorating and DIY (crafts/projects/repurposing) and how to live a simpler and more frugal lifestyle by staying on budget.

I MEAN Really when it comes to design and decorating, who doesn’t want to save money and still have it look like it came out of a designer magazine….and nothing saves money like doing-it-yourself. Whether renovating, crafting or working on a DIY project , I always try to have fun and I hope you  join me in my pursuit of a creative, fun filled DIY (whenever possible), simple, frugal life!

I have a weakness for anything old, white or worn…I am a chocaholic and a tea totaller. I’m also a blogger and a grandmother and a big kid at heart (note the picture, I couldn’t resist getting in that chair). My goal is to share some of my ideas on DIY, (which includes crafts/home projects/repurposing/decorating),  stuff that pops in my head and CHALLENGES (monthly). I hope you come back often to see how things are going. Please stay connected by subscribing via email.

If you want to know more about me…..read on.

I love the idea of upcycling/repurposing and have been known to dive into the odd dumpster or stop at the side of the road(on garbage day) to rescue something that I know could be re-purposed or reused. I’ve just recently purchased a small (900 sqft, one bedroom, one bath) old house (99 years) and it is a real fixer-upper, some of my blogging will include what projects I undertake in the house. I will be open and honest about how long, how much and how easy or difficult each project is. I am not great with power tools but I do my best and if someone will teach me, I’m willing to learn lol!!

I was born and bred on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia CANADA (too many years ago to mention…lol). I currently reside in Alberta, Canada.

I was encouraged to start this blog by a dear friend because she had one of those “ah ha” moments and thought “Wanda should do this” so here I am. She is also a blogger and I’m hoping she, amongst some other  friends, will guest blog from time to time.

My goal is to add a new post at least once a month.  I hope you find something you like and come back often.

Love and Light to all!
