Kewl peeps doing kewl things: Rick from Homestead Junction

Welcome to a new feature I'm adding to my blog, Kewl peeps doing kewl things. In my crafting and upcycling travels, I've met some pretty darn awesome makers. Whether it's making nifty stuff out of 'junk' or being part of making community happen, these are a few of the peeps that have inspired me. And I hope they'll inspire you!

My latest victim for Kewl peeps doing kewl things is Rick from Homestead Junction. I met Rick a few years ago and well he's pretty kick butt. Super genuine. passionate about what he does, into building community and making a difference. Find Homestead Junction at 649 East Hastings Street.

And here's Rick... He got all spiffy for meeting up. 

And he's wearing the jeans he fixed up for the DIY he guest wrote for TBD, Practical Pants Patching Project. Be sure to try his easy peasy repair project!

The people who work at Homestead Junction are awesome... Lovely people who know their stuff. Whether you want to know about canning, bee keeping or composting - they can help get you started.

And they have reasonably priced workshops! I gave an upcycled garden planters Crafternoon last year and loved it. Find their upcoming workshops at www.homesteadjunction.ca.

The store is filled with awesome stuff...

If you're a writer, you can always share your favourite DIY, recipe, etc in the Homestead Junction The Zine - Skills, Rants and Musings.

And here's my upcycled burlap hanging planter that I made for a DIY for the Homestead Junction blog. Loved the blog exchange and working with Rick. Even better - we found a happy home for the herb planter. Sharing is caring!

Be sure to drop by, say hi to Rick, take a workshop or pick up some supplies for a project. These guys are pretty rockin' and rollin'.
