Let me tell you a little bit about myself. Pull up a chair, a snack and stay a while.
This is how excited I am that you are here! I know it kind of looks scary, but really it’s a good thing.
Hi, I’m Emily. I am an Idaho girl at heart (still live there to this day with my wild and silly husband). I love to read, shop, craft and try my hand at DIY. I am not a professional by any means, I just want to share with you my good ideas, tips and mistakes. I hope you have fun stopping by.
Why did I start this blog you ask. After graduating from college and working for a couple of years, I needed to find an outlet for my creative juices and a way to learn new things. Not only is it an outlet, it is motivation. It helps me to get my projects done, share my ideas and connect with friends.
Let me tell you a little bit more about me. I’m a Mormon. You can find out more about what I believe here. I graduated from Brigham Young University-Idaho with a degree in Healthcare Administration. I guess you could say I’m opinionated (or at least that is what my husband says). I’m not sure that I really am that opinionated. I love having fun and spending time with my husband. We love to watch sports together and play. We especially like to frisbee golf. It is super fun plus gets us out and moving.
