I am a journalist with 15 years experience as a professional writer. I am also a hot mess mom to three very energetic daughters. In fact, I literally jumped into parenthood by having three girls in less than three years. While I love to DIY, share design and upcycle projects and creating patterns, my husband is much more of a reluctant renovator. Lucky for me, he is also a total softie who is usually willing to go along with my crazy plans.
