Hi, I’m Toni and I’m so glad you’re here! If you’re new here welcome, welcome, welcome!
I’ve been on this blogging journey more than a few years now and there’s never a dull moment. I used to have a boring corporate job but after a layoff I now work part-time for an old co-worker. The extra time in my day allows me to be creative, and build things, and make cool DIY stuff that I get to share with you.
God gave me this opportunity to shift gears and for that I am so grateful! I’m very thankful to my husband too because he fully supports my job shift that lets me be more creative.
We have a grown daughter who just got married. They’re a huge part of my support system. I must also give a special shout out to my husband for putting up with the constant chaos in the garage and the office (that’s true love friends).
I’m not an expert (be sure you read my disclosure page) and I have my share of failures. But experience, necessity, and lots and lots of home DIY projects over 20 years in our “starter home” have taught me a lot. I’m so happy that I get to share my experience and my projects with you. I hope they encourage you.
Our “starter home” turned into our forever home. She’s a 60 year old 1300 sq ft “mid-century modern-esq” home that we’ve fixed and tweaked to our liking since 1998.
We’ve done most every improvement ourselves, doors, windows, bathrooms, floors, all of it was sweat equity. Mostly because we couldn’t afford to hire anyone, and partly but we love knowing “we did that!”
My tastes have changed over the years and I’m tired of playing it safe with my decor. As I said I’m a color-loving girl so it’s going to get more colorful around our house. And I’m not just talking about the language 🙂
Life would be boring if our surroundings didn’t change from time to time. Sometimes all you need is a few “new” things to give your home new life. Those new things don’t have to cost a fortune.
I’m so happy to have you along on this adventurous DIY ride with me. It’s going to be a lot of fun creating some really cool stuff that I hope inspires you.
Let’s get DIYing,
