Hey, I’m Jillian and welcome to I Am a Homemaker!
I am a mom of three wonderful kids and a wife to one hell of a husband.
I am my father’s daughter and may have inherited some of his carpentry and treasure hunting skills (aka junk collecting.)
I identify myself as a homemaker but not in the June Cleaver kinda way.
There’s nothing wrong with that kind of homemaker but I don’t own pearls and dinner is NEVER ready when my husband comes through the door. I am a homemaker because I use my DIY knowledge and savvy shopping skills to make my home a comfortable and welcoming place for my family without breaking the bank.
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.
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 designated household shopper. I am a woman. I am a mom. I want to stand with you and show you the things I do in hopes that it can help inspire you in some way. Maybe it will even awaken a skill you didn’t know you have.
Thanks for coming by. I hope to see you again soon!
