Diy & Creative Philosoph-

One of my passions is creating a home that is comfortable and inviting.  My Husband and I have done enough DIY renovations now to know how to keep it stress-free (mostly) and easy to accomplish.  I’ll share my tips and tricks for designing on a budget – by updating, repurposing, and making over items you already have or can pick-up cheap.  + I’m doing some cool stuff with clothes to update my summer wardrobe. Let’s create something! Kelly
