Hello! Let me introduce myself…
I like doing things. (I like people, too, don’t misunderstand!) I enjoy thinking of ways to make my home be more useful, more comfortable, more pleasing to look at… all around more enjoyable to the people that live here and to the people that visit us. I am a DIY (do-it-yourself) project person. If you know about Mary and Martha from the Bible, it won’t take you long to notice that I am like Martha. I absolutely love to do projects. Would you like to see how to make useful things of junk?
Inspirational Before and After Pictures
So I love doing DIY projects around the house, inside and out. I like taking pictures during the process, and I love to compare the Before picture to the AFTER picture! I want to share with you my little improvements and my big projects. I hope they inspire you to try your own ideas of improving the beauty and/or the practicality of your living spaces. Of course I like using Pinterest to help me come up with my ideas. Sometimes I try someone else’s idea, or sometimes I come up with one all my own. I am a wanna-be house flipper.
A Little More About My Life
I am married to a talented machinist husband. I have been a homeschooling mom of two children (a girl and a boy) since 2013. I have a part-time office job, I teach piano lessons, and I enjoy playing the piano and organ at my church. In 2017 I trained for and accomplished a hike to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back out in 2 days. I enjoy biking, baking, and gardening. I squeeze in before and afters in my free time–often in the blessed quiet after everyone else has gone to bed.
