Want more?  A note from Wendy...

I’ve been a DIY’er along with my husband for so long we can’t remember not being into DIY! We bought our first house on a shoestring budget and just made do with DIY. I’m lucky to be married to Mr. FPM, my best friend (cheesy right?), I have 2 grown children (and oh my gosh a new grand baby girl Ava Rose  – so fun) and we just made a big change in our life and moved to our lil cottage by the sea in Blue Rocks NS!

I am a dreamer and a doer and there is ALWAYS another project on the horizon.

Teaching and inspiring others fills my happy bucket BIG TIME!

I truly believe paint has the power to rock your world!

Simple pleasures are the best.


 I’d love to meet you! I hope you will join us at the next workshop!
