About Me

Well Hello There…

Come and sit down won’t you?

About me?! Well, creating a beautiful home is my passion. I believe your home should be your sanctuary. A beautiful home doesn’t mean expensive, clean or magazine perfect…. it means happy. It should be your place to escape the world.

My life is a mess, and I love it. Between 3 family businesses, transforming a builder grade home into my personal sanctuary and making sure we still have time to enjoy life… little things like cleaning and laundry tend to fall through the cracks (I will always avoid laundry like the plague), and that’s what makes life messy.

But to me, it’s perfect!

Life should be messy. (Literally and figuratively) If everything in life were picture perfect… that would just make it boring! Plus, we’d spend every day so stressed out that we would never get to s down and really enjoy the moments. Life is about the journey, right? If (heaven forbid) you got into an accident tomorrow and ended up on your death bed, do you really think you’d be sitting there thinking “Man, I really wish I had vacuumed yesterday?”

I hope this site not only helps you learn how to create the things that you want, but provides you with inspiration to live your life the way you want to! And also to create your own sanctuary in your home.
