Hi everyone and welcome to my Shabby Chic Farmhouse website. Making my home beautiful on a budget has been a passion of mine as far back as I can remember. From low cost crafts to making the old look beautiful again, that is what I do best! You will be amazed at the things you can create out of absolutely anything.

A Little Background Story Of My Farmhouse Life

Growing up in a modest income family home, we didn’t always have the money available to buy the latest and greatest. I learned from a young age how to utilize what I had available around me to create lots of beautiful and fun things. From making awesome Halloween costumes out of nothing but a cardboard box, to making the cutest lawn ornaments from rocks, I developed a nack for dreaming up just about anything you can imagine!

My home is not lavish by any means, and to be quiet honest most of the furnishings and decor are old worn out pieces of furniture I have refinished that people were throwing away or creations from using my vivid imagination and whatever is within eyesight. Somehow I always manage to pull off whatever project I dream up. I know my family has questioned my sanity at least once( or twice) but they have always been my greatest fans.

I am a mother of 4 amazing children. I have two boys and two girls who have blessed my with an abundance of beautiful grandchildren. Ten to be exact! As you can imagine, I am always busy making one thing or another for someone in the family. If it isnt a birthday, then its a Holiday.

This is where my budget concience mind begins to run wild. We would be living in the streets if I had to run to the store each time I needed a gift. So instead i use what God gave me and dream something magical up for that special someones day.

What I learned from my childhood is that something given from your heart is worth a million more than something bought.

Anything Goes

I am a  true crafting junkie and the cost of materials can be really spendy. So budgeting and thinking outside the box is a must. I have literally been caught dragging dead tree branches home and using them to create the most amazing wedding decor you have ever seen. How is that for cheap? Nothing is ever off limits and anything goes when it comes to making things. You would be suprised what you can do with paint that has been frozen! I will save that story for later

Practice Makes Perfect ( Not Quite)

My website is designed to help you create a beautiful home and to throw amazing parties with even the most modest of budgets. I promise you won’t have to break the bank in order to make a huge impression. I am here to show you how easy it really can be even if you don’t think you have a creative bone in your body. 

I understand firsthand how intimidating all this can be, believe me! Some of my biggest mistakes have become my favorite pieces. My ultimate goal is to show you how truly easy all this can be. So relax with a cup of coffee (or wine) and Let’s have some fun together! You will be a pro in no time at all! 

  I hope you enjoy the ideas and  fun things I have created within my website. It is such an honor to be able to share my passion with others. Remember to just have fun!  Nothing in life is perfect. Give with love and enjoy the smiles.
