Hello, I’m Dinah! I’m a work at home mom that loves to craft, decorate, repurpose and create. I get my inspiration from several people from Martha Stewart, to my 3 year old daughter, and my extremely talented older brother. I spend hours getting ideas from television shows, swap meets and flea markets, Pinterest, other blogs, thrift stores, and books and magazines.
Deciding to be a stay at home mom was not easy for me because I had spent the last ten years working my butt off and prior to that, I spent several years in college getting degrees and even teaching a little at the state college level. Working hard was in my blood. Everything changed when my amazing husband and I had a beautiful little girl. Here we are…
Becoming a parent, as many of you can attest, flipped my world upside down, and there was no way I was going to miss the first laugh, the first word, the first step, or any milestone in between. Staying at home not only meant quality time with my daughter, but also allowed more time to do what I love… get DIY crafty on the cheap.
With the support of my family and friends, I started this blog to simply test and challenge myself to start new projects, share my inspirations, and hopefully inspire a few others along the way. I even started a second site Inheriting Our Planet that focuses on recycled kids crafts and kid’s activities.
Check out some of my achievements since I started blogging. I’ve been lucky enough to be published in a couple magazines, named one of Mashable’s Moms Full of Inspiring Advice, and partnered with some fabulous brands including Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts, Home Depot and 3M DIY.

Oh! Guess what?? I am also now a part of Martha’s Circle!
