making my house and your's a home, one DIY project at a time
I have a home decorating blog Our house now a home. I write about my projects, crafts, up cycling, redoing, my home improvements, or anything in life. Including life lessons, stories about my kids. But DIY and home decor is my blog's bread and butter. It is what gets me going, keeps me sane, my hobby. I am a DIY contributor at HomeditFancy Shanty, and Homemakers challenge. I am so fortunate to have these opportunity's and contributing to these amazing sites. All wonderful, different, and full of ideas and inspiration. With myself personally I feel that everyone should love the space they are in, their home. And I want to help people find that happy place to make it a home.
