Hello there! Thanks for checking out my website and taking the time to read up on the person behind this blog.
I’m Carrie and I’m a stay at home mom, interior designer, blogger, and an aspiring Etsy shop owner.
I have 2 sons who keep me unbelievably busy and sleep deprived, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. They inspire me in new ways every day and honestly the lack of sleep makes my brain more creative! It isn’t always sunshine and rainbows though and I have no problem “keeping it real” because let’s face it, life with kids is anything but perfect. Anyone who tells you different is lying (or delusional).
I’m an NCIDQ certified interior designer with over 10 years of experience in the commercial/retail field. Now most of you are saying NCID…what now? It’s essentially the bar exam for interior designers aka an expensive and hard exam that you must qualify to take first.
Since becoming a mom and luckily having the opportunity to stay at home to raise my little men I’ve started this business and blog to keep my creative mind busy and my maker heart happy. I have the whole Silhouette America machine arsenal, a heat press, and a sewing machine. I know how to use them, and use them well! My goal is to teach you, inspire you, or I’ll just supply you (go to the etsy shop links!)
I’m all about making a well designed life affordable and obtainable. We’re a single income family so trust me, I get it! I still have standards and desires to have a beautiful home, well planned parties, and adorable craft projects even though we don’t have piles of money laying around. This is where being creative and not being afraid to DIY helps.
Please follow me on social media to stay updated with the latest projects and ideas for your life! Oh and of course pictures of the cute kiddos, those will always be mixed in because they are the most important part of my life.
