I am the creative force behind DIY Passion; a home and lifestyle blog established in 2012 . I still pinch myself every time I get to say this is my full-time job – because working on this passion project has never, for a moment, felt like a job. The road has been long and winding and the journey has been INCREDIBLE.
I decided to follow my passion for being real, honest and building a life on a foundation of calm confidence and not the constant climbing of the corporate ladder.
DIY Passion | My Anchor
Like any living entity, DIY Passion has evolved and grown over the years. It began as a simple DIY blog, focusing on simple projects, crafts and decor, and has morphed into a hub for everything DIY – creating happiness, finding joy, building a business and developing the courage to tackle projects head on.
Over the years, DIY Passion has developed a solid readership of tens of thousands each month; an audience that connects with my real life portrayal of family and self and who look to me for trusted advice and honest experiences.
My Family | My Reason
I met my husband in a record store in 2009. Yes. You read that correctly. It was like something out of a romantic comedy except without the pay checks or cool wardrobes. After dating for four years and buying a small condo in the city together, we finally got hitched and bought a house in the suburbs right beside the Atlantic Ocean in June 2013. We share our wonderful life with our two kitties, Louie and Zuzu and our 14 year old rescue “puppy”, Buddy. (And in 2016, we added a tiny human to the mix! Little Bird (LB) is our sweet baby girl.)
Since we’ve been in this house- watching and experiencing, documenting and celebrating the ways in which we are building our lives together- my philosophy has become one of unabashed positivity. I believe there is always something beautiful to be seen; we just have to have the courage to create space to let it come to us. Living with this mantra has allowed me to continuously create DIY Passion from a place of extreme honesty and happiness and flow.
So while I by no means am an expert, I am honest in my portrayals of experiences. I hope that translates through the computer screen to you! To sum it up, this isn’t a blog that will tell you what to do or even how to do something, but rather simply a place where I share ‘how it’s been for me’.
Now – where’s that paint brush? 😉
