First of all, I thought I would tell you why I decided to write this blog. Well, besides the fact that it seems to be the thing to do these days, I feel like I have something to offer to individuals that have a love of decorating and want to decorate on a budget. I have been asked many times when someone enters my home, "How did you do that?" or "Where did you buy that?" I am happy to share all of my information, from the things that have worked to the things that you need to avoid based on personal experience.
I have been interested in design since I was a little girl. I always knew what I wanted to do "when I grew up". I attended The University of Texas at San Antonio, received a degree in Interior Design and spent about 13 years helping clients, decorating models and working with builders. Once I had my first child, I knew that even though I loved my job, I had something much more important to do. I temporarily "retired" ,staying home to take care of my now, two boys. During this time my husband and I flipped our personal home every two years to feed my need to decorate and redecorate again. Now that we are settled in with the kids in school, I still have a passion for decorating that hopefully will be fulfilled by sharing ideas with you.

The bulletin board behind us I did for the PTA. Fall and football were the inspirations.
This blog is intended for people like me, creative souls that I like to call kindred spirits, who enjoy decorating, crafts, party planning and the like. Over time I will show you projects in my own home as well as decorating and DIY that I have done for friends and family. I have an especially fun endeavor going on right now helping my parents build their beach house in Port A. I probably will add in a few random things like school bulletin boards and other artsy creations as well. I hope you enjoy and if you'd like, please join the site and feel free to comment if you have an idea or project you would like to share!
