I’m Lindsey Ralston, I make and create. If I think I can make something,  I’ll try it.  I enjoy the reward of finishing a project or learning how to do it differently the next time.

I prefer things I can make in a weekend, an afternoon or evening.  Often projects that are a series of days or weeks can keep me interested, as long as I can feel accomplished and challenged after each step.  I particularly like re-using old things in new ways, especially reclaimed wood.

I’m not focused on perfection and I like to create and make simply for the enjoyment of the creative process. If I make something functional then that’s a win! If I make something that doesn’t turn out, I usually have a good laugh and I learned how NOT to do it the next time.

I am blogging simply as an outlet to post my projects. I live in Seattle, with my husband Ward, and our 5 kids and I am a co-0wner of a Corporate Event Production company.

  1. Hi,

    I just had a quick question in regards to your website. If you could email me at your convenience that would be great!



  2. Hi Lindsey,
    I somehow just stumbled across your blog and after a few minutes realized that I took a sewing class with you last spring! The pillow making one taught by Cheryl! Small world! Anyhow, just thought I’d say hi! I love your blog!

  3. I’m a graphic design student in Seattle, and I’m collecting articles, photography, DIY tips/tricks, etc. to feature in a recycled art magazine. I’d love to discuss your work, the blog, and favorite projects, etc. Can you please contact me?

Questions? Comments? I'd love to hear!
