I’m Amanda, and I am the creator and voice behind the food and DIY blog, Domestically Creative. What started as a place to share updates with friends and family after we moved from Illinois to Tennessee and then to Texas, turned into a passion for finding creative and frugal ways to feed us and decorate our homes.

I have always had the “make it myself” attitude and I’m not afraid to bust out the power tools or get creative when it comes to decorating our home on a budget. You can usually find me scouring the local thrift stores, garage sales and estate sales looking for my next makeover (like this litter box cabinet), or dreaming up ways to make our new house feel more like home. My most recent project was giving my home office a much needed facelift. Some of the plans included creating a fun inspirational accent wall and adding pegboard to store my craft hoards.

I currently call Missouri home, where I live with my husband, dog, and 2 cats in a pretty dull, late 90’s split level. My husband and I both love to travel the U.S and recently purchased a small travel trailer to tag along in our journeys. In our free time together we can usually be found working together on a home project, exploring a new place, or just lounging with our pup, Delilah.

I’d love for you to connect with me on social media via FacebookInstagramPinterest and Twitter!

Hi! I am Anika and I blog at Anika’s DIY Life (Anika’s DIY Life). It is a blog about everything DIY – from basic woodworking, furniture makeovers,  Home Décor and fun crafts. My goal is to inspire and encourage DIYers to think outside the box and create décor solutions they love!

I live in Southern California with my husband of 10 years and two young children. I have always loved creating and making things since I was little but in the post teen years, life happened and I drifted away from it. About 6 years ago, on a quest to discover fun furniture for my toddler, I discovered the amazing world of DIY blogs! My very first woodworking build was a kids table and chair set, which is still my favorite! After following almost 50 blogs over 5 years and doing weekend projects, I finally got a chance to turn the dream of sharing my experiences and projects through a blog into reality!

I love lots of color and you will find a lot of unexpected pieces in my home like a faux fur upholstered bench and yellow nightstands in the master bedroom, a fun fabric covered storage ottoman and a red buffet. As much as I love building furniture, I also love easy and simple home décor and organization projects. I believe you can always find the perfect solution to your home décor or organization dilemma if you think outside the box and do it yourself!

I would love for you to connect with me on PinterestFacebookInstagram, and Google+.

I’m Brittany, and I’m the creative behind by Brittany Goldwyn, a DIY, home, and garden blog. I’m a maker at my core, so I share a variety of original DIY tutorials focusing on home decor, furniture (building and makeovers), plants and gardening, and sewing projects. I’m passionate about inspiring others to embrace DIY as a way to bring creativity, style, and function to their lives and homes without breaking the bank. But you can’t DIY everything (don’t tell anyone I said that), so I also share ways to create a beautiful, intentional home on a budget, like this room makeover.I owe much of my DIY skills to my dad, a licensed contractor, but I also inherited his hardheadedness; we’d both rather spend 6 hours making something than spend 30 minutes buying it. Case in point, my cat tree made of real branches, which is my all-time favorite project. My second favorite? Probably my monitor stand, which took far less time to make!
I live in Maryland with my husband and our two very spoiled kitties, Henry and Blanche. We recently bought our first home—a builder-grade townhouse—and are hard at work making it our own.

Aloha! My name is Charlee, and I’m a woodworker and DIY’er, currently living on the island of Oahu.

I started my blog Attempting Aloha in 2010 when we purchased our home here in Hawaii. It started as just a craft blog, but with our home renovations, I learned a lot about woodworking and fell in love with power tools and building things.

We moved to Italy for a few years in 2013, and my focus switched to learning a new language and helping my kids as they trudged through public Italian school. Consequently, I took a short hiatus from blogging.

Now we’re back in Hawaii and I decided to start a fresh blog, which is how Build and Create Home was boIf it’s a home project, I’ve done it! Everything from small beginner woodworking projects to laying 1400 sq ft of tile. Or designing and building my butler’s pantry from the ground up! I’m a firm believer that woodworking only takes a few tools and a little bit of confidence. Anyone can do it, and I’m happy to help you get started. I’m most active on Instagram, but you can also catch me on Facebook, too.

Hello, I’m Colleen!  I share my love of all things paint and step-by-step painting tutorials on my blog, Just Paint It.

I started painting after a long hiatus when my boys were small and my anxiety was large. Painting was my salvation. I’m primarily a self-taught artist, despite a brief class in college that discouraged me. Twenty years later, I finally picked up the brush again and created a painting for my boss. This lead to wall murals in our home. Soon friends wanted murals too. And before I knew it, I was a muralist. The rest is history.

My favorite DIY project to date has to be my blog. I love sharing and teaching there, and have met the most incredible people through blogging. I honestly believe that anyone can paint! Do you doubt yourself? Check out this simple 15 minutedipdot flower project. Or with a little more time,  you can learn how to paint a simple tree mural. Still need more persuasion? Try these quick ‘n easy holiday projects and ways to spruce up thrift store finds.

My goal with my blog is always the same – to encourage and inspire others to find the same joy that I find when I paint. Trust me, if I can do it, anyone can.

Hi, I’m Cristina the blogger behind Remodelando La Casa (Home Remodeling), a blog dedicated to anything and everything to do with revamping a home.  I’m obsessed with design and decor, but most of all with all things DIY.

I started blogging in January 2012 after finishing my kitchen renovation.  I was very grateful for the amount of inspiration and help I got from other blogs to complete the job.   My way to say thanks and give back was by chronicling all the work so others behind me could benefit from it.  The kitchen was transformed but many other projects were (and continue to be) completed!

More recently, I renovated my teen daughter’s bedroom, where I learned that not everything has to be new. I also learned to listen to the requirements of my “client” :-).

I live in the Washington D.C. area with my husband and two children.  I love paint changes, working with wood, sewing, biking, the beach, and having a hot cup of coffee with my husband.  You can connect with me on facebookgoogle+twitterpinterestlinkedin.

Hi, I’m Jacque and I have been creating for as long as I can remember. DIY is truly my passion.  I created the blog The DIY Village with my husband Matt.

My father was taught by his father.  In turn my father taught me how to create with my hands and not take the easy way out of building things.  As a child drawing and crafting were high on my list of priorities so as an adult it isn’t much of a stretch that I still love to paint, craft, and DIY.  And with a completely renovated craft room, I’m always in the mood to create! My favorite part of doing this as an adult is the opportunity I have to share my loves with others, and hopefully inspire them to try things on their own!  I am constantly adding new things for Matt and I (mainly Matt) to add to our never ending honey-do list.  With two creative minds in one house we are never short on projects to work on!

Hi, I’m Jaime and I write That’s My Letter, a DIY project focused blog with an emphasis on building, painting and sewing.  All my life I’ve been painting, drawing, crafting and making things.  I grew up in Minnesota and then majored in Studio Arts at a liberal arts college on the East Coast.  While there, I worked in the costume shop for the theater department, met my now husband of 12 years and then went on to work for an interior design firm in New York City.  We have 3 young children and now that they are all school age I have shifted my focus to do what I love – build, paint and sew.  The real turning point came when we renovated our kitchen in the summer of 2010.  One project led to another and I started blogging about all my projects one by one which has ultimately led to a small business.

My goal with each project is to work smart, efficient and economical.  I love a good challenge whether it be designing a build to fit the space (entry locker unit), solving a logistical solution (portable lego tray), constructing a craft using unconventional supplies (plastic tablecloth rosette garland) or just a simple makeover with paint (front door makeover).  And I firmly believe you can do it too which is why write a majority of my posts as tutorials in an effort to share my experience with readers.

Hi everyone, I’m Jeff Patterson, a dad and husband from Pittsburgh, PA (Go Steelers) who spends my not-so-spare time doing home renovations.

Over the last 10 years I’ve conducted some pretty cool repair projects on my own house and the rental homes we own.  I’ve also shared some time saving shower cleaning tips. All my projects are meant to be done over the weekend and can be accomplished by anyone who knows how to swing a hammer ;-). You can find me and my entertaining DIY videos over at Home Repair Tutor.
