What you’ll love about this blog:

  • DIY FRIENDLY – Even though I love to buy nice things, I also love a bargain as much as the next guy. So, I always keep the budget in mind when I redesign a room or do a DIY project.
  • I’M A REAL PERSON – I know you don’t know me personally, but I’d like it if you did. I’m just a woman who blogs from her living room in Massachusetts, plays with her cats, and loves to DIY, decorate, and organize everything.
  • I KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT – With a degree in Interior Design, I ran my decorating, organizing, and real estate staging business for over 10 years before opening a retail shop where I sold decorative items and tools for home improvements. Now I teach others “how to” with my blog.
  • I SHARE WHAT I KNOW– As much as I love working for other people, I love sharing what I know and what I’ve learned along the way even more. I want you to be able to decorate, organize, and DIY like me and I will do my best to teach you everything I can to make that happen right here on the blog.
