I woke up this morning to 1k followers....It’s so crazy cool how many new friends I have met recently that love diy, chippy paint, and all things home decor as much as I do!!! It’s so inspiring to see all of your clever ways that you beautify your spaces!!! You guys all ROCK!!! I love it 💕
Since finding this decor community a few months ago, I have never really introduced myself! So here goes.... I am a wife and homeschooling momma to two kiddos here in Northern Michigan. I turned 37 last week. I am one of 12 children....yes 12!!!
My husband and I have renovated 3 homes together (top to bottom) and LOVE all things DIY! Last year we decided to follow our hearts and move back home to be close to our families! My husband quit his dream job,took a significant pay cut, moved 7 hrs away, while I stayed and finished the remodel on the home we were about to sell! Praise God for family and their generous hearts to help us through all of this! After selling our WI home (and joining my husband in MI)we bought 65 acres on Fletcher Creek. We only had enough cash to buy the land and build a barn w/ living quarters. To save money we did ALL the work ourselves(with the exception of the foundation). We designed the “Cottage”, framed it, roofing, siding, windows, electrical,plumbing, in flooring heating,insulation,drywall,
painting, concrete countertops,trim...you name it...we did it! This picture is a perfect depiction of our diy style...we made the doors and vanity ourselves our of rough-sawn pine! It may sound a bit crazy, but we love it and it save us so much money that we plan to build our “forever” home next year! We have it figured that we built this home for under 70k and it took us 1 full year (nights and weekends)!!!
We took a chance to follow our dreams...and we are so stoked that we did!!!! If you have a goal or a dream that seems impossible...I’m telling you; if you’re willing work hard and Persevere....you can absolutely reach your goals!!! If you made it to the end of this....Yay, you’re extra special 💓!!! And now you know the story of @fletchercreekcottage 😊
I’m totally obsessed with @hudabeauty lip strobes but haven’t gotten my hands on any yet. So I came up with this DIY hack where you can turn your favourite lip gloss into a strobe. All you need is a highlighter and lipgloss.
Tip: Apply the strobe over your matte lipstick in the middle of your lips and cupid’s bow for the illusion of fuller and plumper lips.
