About

“If you want something done right, Do It Yourself.”

Growing up my dad always told me “If you want something done right, you need to do it yourself.” This was his advice long before DIY became a trend. This drilled in thought process led me to be labeled by some as “control freak” “obsessive compulsive” and other labels which I’m sure are not quite as kind.

Fast forward 40 some years, a husband, six kids, three grandkids, and a German Shepherd later;

His advice has proved invaluable. Because DIY is my lifestyle I will not be blogging about one category of DIY but many…My DIY life.  Travel, decorating, rehab, health and fitness and most importantly- family.  All of which are subjects that are close to my obsessive heart. All of this I do in the name of doing it right and saving money.

In my blogs I will travel to new places,  build furniture, redecorate, try new beauty and health products, and talk about family experiences.

I’m inviting you to come along for the ride.
