DIY Inspired is the perfect blog for tips, ideas and projects.

Screen Shot 2013-06-12 at 5.17.58 AMI’m not a designer, decorator, editor, photographer, or even a professional writer. I’m a work at home mom that loves to craft, decorate, repurpose and create.  I get my inspiration from several people from Nate Berkus to Martha Stewart, or even from my daughter and my extremely talented older brother.  I spend hours getting ideas from television shows, swap meets and flea markets, Pinterest, other blogs, thrift stores, and books and magazines.

Becoming a parent, as many of you can attest (that is, if anyone ever reads this), flipped my world upside down, and there was no way I was going to miss the first laugh, the first word, the first step, or any milestone in between.  Staying at home not only meant quality time with my daughter, but also allowed more time to do what I love… get DIY crafty on the cheap.

With the support of my family and friends, I started this blog to simply test and challenge myself to start new projects, share my inspirations, and hopefully inspire a few others along the way.
