My name is Renee and I am from the Nashville, TN area. I created this blog to share my love for DIY. I have a theory that if I can make it, I’d rather not buy it. I love personal touches to home decor, meals, and gifts.
I think my love for design started with Microsoft Paint when I was a young kid… thankfully, I moved on to Adobe products by high school. As a child, I had all of these wild ideas for “projects”that didn’t always come together as I had imagined, but my brain had already began processing in terms of how I could make things from scratch into exactly what I wanted it to be.
My great-grandmother gave me a crocheted purse when I was twelve, and I decided to learn how to knit. By fifteen, I was knitting and teaching myself everything past the basics. From there, I became insistent upon showing my affection and love for others by making them gifts. It’s a passion in life for me now.
I’m a HUGE Pinterest addict. I’ll try not to ramble too much about it post after post, but Pinterest is a DIYer’s heaven. I can find tips and tricks on saving money on home projects and new ideas for gifts and decorations. I practically planned my entire wedding on Pinterest… on a seriously impressive small budget.
Outside of crafting, I’m married to my best friend in the world. We have two dogs. Our Pug’s name is Hamlet, and our English Bulldog is named Dudley. These three boys are my life and I could never ask for a more supportive and loving home. I have faith in the fact that I can keep life interesting my expressing myself through art.
