Hello all! This here is to let you know a little bit about me and Casa Creativa! So this all started so I could document some of the work I've been doing since moving to Italy 3 years ago. I quit my job to move with my husband who was offered a job in Italy. I certainly wasn't unhappy with the prospect of living in Italy for a few years, so 6 months later off we went in our Luton van with 3 cats and what belongings we wanted to take with us. It was an adventure; we were recently married, childless, and had a flat in the UK we could rent out. 3 years later, we have an Italian house and garden needing endless work, 3 happy cats, and a son in full toddler mode! Pre-baby I spent my time renovating our Italian house: tiling, plastering, knocking walls down, painting, plumbing, and upcycling furniture. Thank goodness for online videos to help with all the new skills! So now I spend my time trying to do DIY, craft projects and paint furniture with a toddler hanging off my leg (or neck, or hair or wherever else he finds interesting!), whilst documenting it all as well...I LOVE it! I hope you find something here to inspire you, to re-love what you've got or dig around used furniture stores, etc. for stuff to bring back to life again and make your home a Casa Creativa! I'd love to hear about what you're working on right now, so always happy to hear from you!
