Come behind the scenes at Big Red Kitchen for a #KitchenTour and see Robin's kitchen in Williamsburg, Virginia.
It's small. My former kitchen was huge- thus Big Red Kitchen. But two years ago we decided to downsize from our 4100 square foot home in Northern Virginia to our current 1100 square foot home called Manderley Cottage here in Williamsburg. We are a family of five, so we are definitely cozy. The smaller kitchen has made me focus on the kind of cooking I want to do. So in a sense, I downsized how I bake- no more cupcakes (too many gadgets!), and I had to ask myself which tools I use most frequently, and if it is something that is used only once or twice a year, well then it had to go. Smaller kitchens while difficult to cook large meals in, do lend themselves to clean up very quickly. Big Red Kitchen took hours to clean, and this little kitchen is almost fuss free.
Samjane creates a romantic themed outfit for today's #DIYTheLook
I went with a 'romantic theme' I'm working on a new book of knit patterns with the same theme, so I'm a bit stuck theme wise these days ;) plus it's spring, the flowers are blooming and the weather is perfect! I love the long flowing skirt with the snuggly sweater and fitted tank. Flowers and glitter are just a given!

Mica Angela Hendricks was born ages ago into the traveling circus of military life, and has been fortunate enough to have seen a decent chunk of the world as a result. At a young age, she developed a sort of Darwinian added appendage, as her sketchbook rarely left her hands. People who didn’t take the time to get to know her simply called her “that girl that draws.” She now travels all over the world with her husband (who is in the military), and spends a lot of time creating artwork with their creative 7-year-old daughter, Myla. Mica works primarily in ballpoint pen and acrylics.
I'm an artist and writer. I've been working as a children's illustrator for over ten years, and am the author and illustrator of the picture book MONSTERS VS. KITTENS. I also draw comics and am the creator of the webcomic MY SISTER THE FREAK.

I've managed to create an eclectic, warm, inspiring space that is very me. It's filled with finds from the dump, the thrift store and garage sales. Plus free stuff friends and random people have given me. My space brings together all the things that make me a very happy person - inspiring quotes, photos of my family, my adventures and my husband plus colourful pieces like swanky pillow covers, vintage lamps and low maintenance plants.
