I’ve always had a creative personality type. From painting + drawing to furniture rearranging + room decorating, I love pretty much any activity where I get to be creative! I work full time in healthcare, which doesn’t give me much opportunity to do what I love. Which is why I started this blog- I needed a place to get all my design thoughts and ideas out.

Since buying our first home, my blog has grown to include more DIY projects. I hope to show people that you can create beautiful spaces- even on a tight budget! I’ve become a huge believer in the power of paint, and that if you’re unhappy with an area of your home- you should do whatever you can to fix it! You may have to save and plan for a full renovation, but that doesn’t mean you can’t temporarily fix it in the mean time. Your home should be a place that makes you happy, so don’t make excuses for why you need to wait to make changes (unless you’re renting and can’t)!

I live in the suburbs of Philadelphia with my husband and our 1.5 year old son. When we’re not chasing our son around or doing projects on our home, we love a good Netflix binge session, enjoying a few IPAs on our deck, and hanging out with friends.

My biggest DIY project to date is definitely when I painted our kitchen counters! It took me a weekend to finish, and it made a huge difference!

I’m also constantly posting home updates to my Instagram account, so be sure to follow me there for even more home ideas!
