Today is the day. This blog will be a resolution crossed off my list!
A little about me...I'm a mom to four girls. They are adorable, smart and funny. I love to spend time with my family. When everyone goes to school or bed, I have a paint brush/wood/hammer/level in my hands. It relaxes me and I get a sense of accomplishment when I see the finished product. My Dad is a general contractor and can build anything. I have memories of being 9 or 10 and going to "Take Your Daughter to Work Day" with him. I vividly remember countersinking nails into molding with a nail set and filling the holes with wood filler. That was fun for me and still is!
I've been reading home design/craft/DIY blogs for over a year now. My google reader is full of them. Each day I log on and check out some of my favorites. Their projects are always inspiring - pictures beautiful. They love to do what I love to do. Each and every post I think, "Wow, I'd love to have a blog and post all of my projects. But I can't." I always come up with a different reason why I shouldn't start a blog. Well no more excuses. With my 30th birthday fast approaching I'm hoping to create a blog that encourages non-DIYers. There is always a chance that your project will fail, many of mine have, but the ones that don't...the special ones - will be so gratifying!
Follow me on this journey while I attack one DIY project at a time...or 20 simultaneously (which drives my husband crazy)!
