Hello friends! I’m Nicole and I’m a married mama to three spunky, high energy kiddos. They are 2, 4 and 6 years old- let that sink in. Now you know how tired I am all the time. We have two furbabies to add to our chaos, but we are lovin’ it. We reside in the Midwest and have been living in our 1980’s fixer upper for about a year and a half. We are legit always working on projects and seem to have more than one going on at any given moment, but hey, that’s how we roll!
I love to create (I own an Etsy shop and sell some of my work at a local boutique downtown Des Moines, IA) and as cliché as it sounds, I do love making our house a home. I want it to feel comfy and show off our style, which is totally not 1980’s. My style kinda, sorta has a personality disorder. I love many styles and can’t seem to commit to just one throughout our home. I do adore the farmhouse look, some French country and the whites and nudes throughout. Anything vintage and chippy is my jam. Buut, I do have to have color in my home! And some modern pieces and clean lines. Confused yet? Yeah me, too. I think this is what makes my style so special (or not), I like a little here and a little there. I also enjoy party planning and entertaining. Even more so when it’s done creatively and on a budget 🙂
My goal for my blog is to not only have you join me on my fixer upper/ DIY journey on my home, but to encourage you to do the same! And find your own style. Yes, the picture perfect magazines and Instagram photos are super gorgeous, but sometimes that’s not always real life. Real life for me is choosing pieces of furniture that resist kid/pet stain or perhaps it needs to be baby proof and child safe. I want to encourage you to find and create your style whether it’s home décor, DIY projects, organizing or entertaining. Also, I’m hoping you are all patient with me as I navigate through this blogging world and very slowly building a website!
Thanks for joining me in my journey through motherhood, my Etsy business and anything home!
