"Those who don't believe in magic will never find it."

Hi! I'm Kathleen Ballos, a Guelph-based maker and craft stylist with a focus on creating original DIY content. I am currently the blog manager for Handmade Charlotte, and have previously contributed DIY crafts for Martha StewartDesign*SpongeOh Happy Day, Brit + CoThe House That Lars BuiltSugar & Cloth, Julep, and Canadian Living. I also lead local craft workshops and make hand-crafted party decor & accessories available in my shop. For more details about my services, please read more here

My work has been shared by Martha Stewart Living, BuzzFeed, Apartment Therapy, and Oh Joy and I have previously worked with brands including Bing, Fererro Rocher, Minted, and Staples. 

I really do think it's the thought that counts and love repurposing everyday items into something brand new. I think Roald Dahl said it best: "And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
