Tell us a bit about your home and what you love about it the most?

I love the layout and flow of my home. The kitchen overlooks our backyard so while I’m in there [which is 99.9% of my day] I can watch the kiddos playing in the backyard.

What was the first DIY project you did to your home or first thing you made for it?

Hmm…the first thing I did was hang 43 privacy shades in every window! We live pretty close together here in California so that was top priority on my list. I know, boring.

Do you have any tips for staying tidy & organised?

Soup cans!! I have made several projects using them. They’re free. Have an industrial feel. Perfect size for holding crayons, glue, Mama’s glue sticks, Mama’s nails, etc. Also, take it one little step at a time; even if you just organize a corner of your house. Organizing an entire room can be overwhelming.

If you could tour any celebrities home, who would it be?

John Malkovich [he’s my fav actor and is a bit mysterious to me, so I’d love to see what his style is]

If you had three wishes, what changes would you make to your home?

More storage. A craft room. More storage.

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I dabble a bit in gardening. I love working out, skiing, camping, dancing and painting.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?

I only recently got into DIY’ing [at the ripe old age of 40!] and have to say it’s NEVER too late to discover your passion in life. One thing you never get enough of in life is time so if you want to paint your ceiling neon orange..go for it! There are no rules in DIY’ing or decorating.
