My name is Diana
I have been a Creative my entire life ~you better grab a cuppa... this is a Long story!
I have been drawing & creating cozy spaces for as long as I can remember...
creating forts, re arranging the furniture in our family home ( much to Mom's dismay) cooking & baking. I guess you could say I liked to keep busy!
As an Teen I was in the Art programs in Elementary & High school, as well as a Dancer since the age of 3. To say I had a busy childhood is an understatment.
I opened my first creative business as a Teen ~ My Dad loaned me $100 to purchase supplies, drove me to Lewiscraft (that is likley aging me a tad) & I created Home decor to sell at a Local Corner store ~ It was great fun!
Fast forward a couple years ~ and I took a couple painting classes just to get outta the house! and next thing you know, Mike was going to craft sales to sell my paintings & i started teaching workshops... back then my business was Farmer Di's Country Crafts ~ we have such awesome memories of those days, cutting wood with an inverted Jigsaw mounted on a Router table & a jimmy rigged platform my father in law made.
In 1998 I went to college & graduate after 3 long hard years with a diploma in Interior Design and Welcome Home Interiors was born. I worked in the corporate world for several years, though I longed to be creating in my workshop/ studio... so I did. I started creating more.
I started going to Auctions, on picking days at thrift & antique shops so I could start upcycling furniture & home decor. We made our own chalk based furniture paint and attended vendor events all over Eastern Ontario with my sister... we had a great time.
I started teaching workshops again, that is my passion, to teach! So here we are today, with the Shop & studio. and since we can not be open to the public, have shifted to the online space ~ offering product & workshops virtually.
