Hello! We’re Vicki and Amy, the mother/daughter team behind Canary Street Crafts! On our blog you’ll find furniture makeovers, DIY projects, thrift store up cycles and crafts.
How We Got Started
In early 2014, I (Amy) decided to stay home with my kids full time. I had been working as firefighter and paramedic for 13 years. My husband is also a firefighter (for a different department) and between our crazy schedules and 24-hour shifts, I felt like our kids were with my parents more than they were with us. After a lot of thought, we made the decision for me to stay home full time.
My mom (Vicki) was already retired, and since we live just a few minutes from each other, we spend a ton of time together. We decided to start our blog on a whim with absolutely no idea how to run a website. Now it’s something we work on together every week, and we even sell our furniture makeovers in a local antique mall.
We’re so happy you’ve stumbled onto our blog and we hope you’ll decide to hang out for a while.
