I am the Mother of 3 beautiful children, and the wife of the most wonderful man alive! I am a photographer and have my own photography business, (.amandalaingphotography.blogspot.com). I LIVE to be creative, I love to make ugly, old things beautiful, I love to cook, make things with my kids, find thrifty ways to decorate my home, and I LOVE to DIY EVERYTHING! If other people can do it, I figure I can too!? LOL! I am always working on a project and wanted a way to keep a "journal" of things I make/do, and in the process, maybe inspire others to DIY too! Not everyone has the confidence to even try, so I hope you enjoy this journey with me as I try, maybe fail, but hopefully succeed at making some pretty cool stuff on a budget!
