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. )
Our house is now our castle. It’s where we celebrate victories and suffer defeats as we DIY our way to making it our own.
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? 😉
