What I Love
My true passion with regards to home matters is the satisfaction of spreading my creative wings and being part of the transformation process from before to after. Whether it is painting my front porch floor or hanging peel-and-stick wallpaper, or refinishing a piece of furniture, or decorating my beloved dining room table, I love making my house our home and doing most of the work with my own hands.
As a former teacher, I knew when I had children, I wanted to be able to stay home with them as long as possible. ... After the birth of my first child in 2004, that meant I had to find ways to save money and get creative! Then, my second two children came along, and I found myself elbow deep in craft projects and all things D-I-Y. Eventually, I inherited two reclining tufted chairs and decided, after many hours watching YouTube videos while waiting for my daughter at the dance studio, to try re-covering them myself. The next thing I knew, I had people asking me to do big projects for them and, since I also enjoyed organizing, making wreaths and wooden signs, and making older furniture look beautiful again, a business was born in 2014 and it seemed only fitting to name it MY HOME MATTERS. Now, all three of my children are in school all day, and I am on a mission to balance doing honest, quality work with remaining involved with my children’s schools and activities while they are still young enough to want me there!
