I love connecting with others who are passionate about creating and cultivating!

If you have any questions, comments, or an idea for a collaboration, please send me a line at naomi@renaissance-revival.com

Also…(shameless self-plug) I have been hired on a few occasions for consulting purposes as well as to give presentations and host workshops in some of the areas I’m passionate about.

If you would like to learn a new skill, or need someone to lead a creative workshop, or do some art/craft demos, please contact me!

I would love to hear from you!


  • I got some free poppy seeds from a seed exchange and these are the beauties that popped up!!! #poppysurprise #yeggarden #seedysunday #seedexchange #poppy
  • My front garden has cranberries, hazelnut, apricot, pine nut, saskatoons, elderberry, aronia viking berry and nanking cherries interplanted with spring to fall perennial flowers and medicinal herbs. Not everything is fruiting yet, but in a few years, this front yard is going to be an edible oasis!  #yeggarden #growfood #flowersmakemehappy
  • "I mommy". All the kids have taken to impersonating me, much to their comedic delight. Even the 3 year old is in on the roasting. I had no idea motherhood contained this much razzing.

  • All the kids said that the highlight of our family camp weekend was kayaking! I think I have my next kijiji search mission. 😏Anyone know anything about kayaking in Edmonton? Is the river valley a good place to take kids? #yeg #yegrivervalley #kayaking #advice

  • Family camp at Sylvan Lake! I'm going to go ahead and say that I'm surprisingly awesome at archery. #notahumblebrag 😁Too bad there wasn't an archery team in high school. I could have been a jock.πŸ’ͺ #sportsing #archery #familycamp
  • There's a fox napping on my porch! His name is Lito and this heat is making him sleepy!🌞☺️🦊🦊🦊 I'm thinking of selling this cutie and my other OOAK upcycled items on my Facebook page- posting items as soon as I'm finished making them. Normally if I'm getting ready for a craft show I have to work pretty much full time for 2 months working on producing product. Don't get me wrong I loooove doing those festivals/etc, but with a part time job and 4 kids at home for the summer it's hard to make the bigger venues work right now! I'd love to maybe do a small Christmas craft show/festival but until then, I'm going to post a few items here and there on FB and see what happens :) #upcycled #thirftstore #felted #sweater #fox #stuffedanimal #ooak #valuevillagediy #yegartist #yegcraft
