Hey! My name is Brooke, and I am a 5 ft tall, 35 year old Child of God, wife and mother of 2 of the most adorable and crazy kids! Eden is 7, and Blaize is 5. We live in rural Western Kentucky where I have been afforded the opportunity to stay home with my kiddos and blog full time. Life is crazy and pretty much nonstop, but I love it! I am constantly on the move! I have been told numerous times by my husband to just “sit down and rest”. I just can’t do it. When at home, if I am not playing with the kids, doing laundry, cooking, cleaning or beating my husband in a game (well, I try…), I am painting something, arranging something on a wall, scouring the local Facebook pages for deals that I can snag, or reading how-to blogs for any and everything. It is just what drives me. It is my passion. I simply love to re-do and make things! I am a lover of all things thrifty, and there is nothing I love more than to go “junkin'” and find my next prize! Don’t you think that is just the greatest?!?! What I love most is that there is no “right” way to decorate, re-do or even paint for that matter. My style ranges so much, but that is what makes it “mine”! I love to write, and I love to share what I am doing on all of my projects and occasionally what is going on in my life, in general. I hope you enjoy this site and all that it has to offer. My hope is that it will inspire you to think outside of the box and pursue your passions like I have. We can all do anything we set our hearts to, but we can never do anything if we do not make the first step. This is true in not only life, but also the simple things, such as picking up that paint brush and putting that first stroke on that old table you have had for years. Don’t be scared- just go for it! You will be amazed at what you can accomplish!
