Welcome to JOYFUL DAISY,  a place to share the things that bring us JOY.  From crafts to recipes, DIY’s & home décor, lunch note comics, and anything else that brings a smile to our face, I hope sharing it brings a smile to yours 🙂  It is definitely a family affair with many creative ideas and inspiration coming from Nana Lin, my husband, and my kiddos.

My background consists of an art degree, freelance design, and many JOYful years of craft shows and teaching scrapbooking classes, but I am probably most influenced by growing up watching my mom make something out of nothing and always keeping things crafty and fun.  I love whimsy and bringing out the extraordinary in the ordinary 🙂  It has been fun seeing Joyful Daisy projects featured on other crafty websites and magazines.  CLICK HERE to view some of the places featuring us.

I look forward to hearing from you and if you have any questions about any posts or tutorials just shoot them on over and I will do my best to get them answered as soon as possible.  So stay JOYful and smile on!

    I enjoyed reading your tutorial on the Mackenzie child’s painting projects. I have some questions about the varnish process. Does it hold up if it gets wet? How many coats do youdo and what kind of varnish do you use? Do you prime the pieces first?

      Hi Diane, I use Delta Ceramcoat – Gloss Exterior/Interior Varnish. (It is polyurethane) I have only put one coat on all my projects mainly because I love the glossy finish. The only product that has been tested outside is my Mackenzie Child’s knock off bird feeder which I am happy to say still looks new after weathering the elements for a few summers. As for primer, I like a adding a quick, light coat of Kryon’s spray on primer. It has a little grit to it and the paint sticks really well. I don’t always prime, because I just want to jump right in, I can be a bit impatient when I have a new idea! However, if the furniture piece has a shiny finish or is metal, I always prime first.
