My love for DIY started at an early age as I watched my mother tackle DIY projects with such ease and enjoyment. Whether she was sewing, baking, cooking, crocheting, quilting, canning, gardening, etc. she dove right in. I became her sidekick in these endeavors, and she created a spark inside of me that soon turned into a flame. Prior to the internet, I spent many hours learning from the guests on The Carol Duvall Show and watching Ms. Stewart work her magic on Martha Stewart Living. I slowly started to work on my own projects, and DIYing became cathartic for me. I still love the instant gratification when an idea turns into a successful DIY piece. However, the DIY fails are always a good learning experience. Either way, I am up for the DIY adventure, and I enjoy learning along the way.
Now that I have my own family I want to start that same spark in my children's eyes to try whatever their hearts' desire. So follow along as I chronicle my adventures in DIY. I focus on projects that inspire my heart, family and palate.
Please let me know if you have any questions about my projects, or if you have any projects you think I should try.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you stay a while.
