Hey, I’m Jillian!
I am a mom of three wonderful kids and a wife to one hell of a husband. I am the daughter of a carpenter.
I identify myself as a homemaker but not in the June Cleaver kinda way. I don’t even own pearls. I am someone who loves DIY projects and may have inherited some of my father’s carpentry skills and I use all of that to make my home what it is.
The two biggest compliments you can give me are “You have good kids.” and “Your home is so welcoming.” My family and my home are my work, and I love them both.
I have a degree in fashion merchandising and yes, I realize that is the degree Elle Woods was in school for BEFORE she decided to become an attorney. But that’s ok with me. I never wanted to be an attorney, I did want to be a marine biologist, though.
My favorite show is anything created by Shonda Rhimes, Scandal being my favorite show EVER.
I drink too much coffee and eat too much candy. Smarties are my go to. I think I am the only person left on Earth that love Smarties. To me they are lovely little doses of rainbow goodness that melt in my mouth and make me happy.
I say “crap” a lot.
This is who I am and this is my soap box. I am here to share everything from the furniture I build to how I water my plants. I am not just a crafter, DIYer or baker, I am a woman, and a mom and I want to share the things I do in hopes that it can help inspire you in some way, in any way.
I would love for you to sign up below, for my newsletter so I can keep in touch!
Thanks for coming by. I hope to see you again soon!
