My passion was born out of the desire for charm and character in our home. I didn't want to have a dining room table that was identical to someone else's - I wanted my stamp of creativity to be evident to anyone who walked through the front door. In refurbishing old pieces of furniture, I discovered my knack for taking something ordinary and plain, and through simple alterations turning it into something beautiful and new. This led me to create LetsBeCrafty.com, a collection of DIY guides that offer direction for our online community. Through the site, I try to help people create something truly unique.
I currently live in the Midwest with my wonderful husband, Brannon, our amazing baby daughter, Ember, and our adorable 6lb black toy poodle, Oliver. I love traveling, biking, hiking, canoeing, camping, RV-ing, adventures, road trips, learning, crafting, and exploring new things. We live to travel, explore, and experience - and I can't think of a better way to live.
