Hi, I’m Victoria! I am the busy mom to three kids, ages 5-10.

Even though I’m sorta reserved in personality, when it comes to our garden, it is full of color, unique DIY home decor projects and lots of quirks and character. I love that my ideas aren’t what you may find all over Pinterest. (No mason jar crafts here! No farmhouse decor!)

My biggest thrill is coming up thrifty solutions to pricier garden decor ideas! I rip out pages from pricey catalogs and inspire to make it myself. I will take things apart and reuse them in new and fun ways. All to save a few bucks for that next project! Fortunately, I have a husband who goes along on the DIY adventure!

I want to give you thrifty garden decor, seasonal projects and crafty creations not already all over the blogosphere. Projects that can be tackled by DIY newbies to long-time crafters.

I am Canadian born and raised and have made my way to California via a few very fun single years living in the Longhorn State. The sea is my happy place.

My DIY decor projects and crafts have been featured on Huffington Post, GoodHousekeeping.com, BuzzFeed and on popular websites such as Tatertots & Jello, She Knows, Knock Off Decor, Hometalk and DIYIdeaCenter.
