About Me…

I am a stay-at-home mom, with one beautiful daughter and one handsome son, four dogs, two cats, two birds and one fabulously supportive husband. I am not the world’s best designer, blogger, DIY-er, photographer or cook, but I do make the effort to not suck  fail miserably at any of them. Everyday I seem to find something to inspire my next project, even though the last ones aren’t done yet.

Since I was introduced to Pinterest a few months back, I can’t sleep at night without dreaming about making something over, or trying a new way to cook chicken, or which shade of white I should paint the kitchen cabinets. It’s an addiction I can’t seem to shake. Follow along with me as I attempt to put some of the ideas I see into action.

Thanks for reading!

    Totally relate to you! Which is awesome, I’m a stay-at-home mommy to a 4 year old daughter. Crazy about anything I can make or redo with my hands. Constantly starting new projects when I still have 3 other things in progress.

    AND ADDICTED TO PINTEREST too lol… did you see a recent comic about someone who didn’t wanna pin…. couldn’t understand why anyone was so into it… he/she was bored, decided to check it out “what’s all the fuss about?” then 2 squares over they look all maniac with one fist in the air: -2hours later- “PIN ALL THE THINGS!” lol wish I had a link to it.

    Thank you for such and inspiring blog Eliesa!

      Aww, thanks and welcome! I have seen that comic! I think my daughter sent it to me – she’s on Pinterest too, so she get it.
      This blogging thing is interesting, trying to take it slow and not get ahead of myself. But the projects just seem to create themselves, don’t they? I’m glad you found my blog, it’s so nice to have people that can relate to the need to create things.

    I love reading your blog! You do all of the projects I wish I had the time to do! Sadly there aren’t enough hours in the day and with a baby and a toddler I have to pick projects that won’t result in toddler fingerprints in paint through the house or anything they can get into (sadly most of the projects I want to do) so I am living vicariously through your blog! Thank you for sharing (I also nominated you for a Liebster award.)

      Oh wow! Until yesterday, I didn’t know what a Liebster award was, and now I’m all choked up! No, really, this is awesome – like rock my socks off awesome. I’ve been smiling about it all day – big goofy smile that made me look like I was up to something (so said my husband!) Unfortunately, I had to think about who I would nominate in return so it took a while to respond. Thank you! You have made my week!
