Hi, I'm Laurie. I'm "The Boss" when it comes to choosing paint colors, but sometimes it goes wrong and we start over. Before we renovate, I talk to Handy Man and we make decisions about which materials to use. I like to work on several projects at once. 

I'm a writer, blogger and at-home mom to our Handy Boy, age 14. In addition to home decorating, I love scrapbooking, photography and reading. 

I've written a contemporary romance novel and two romance novellas. You can read about my writing in a blog post hereYou can also check out my author site here.

In this DIY/home decor blog I'll share renovation projects, tutorials, and occasional updates on my writing projects. 

Handy Man

I’m Rob. By day, I’m a computer geek. At night and on the weekends, I'm a handyman.

Weekends are my most productive times as a handy man. Laurie maintains a Honey-Do List for me that never seems to get any shorter… no matter how many tasks I complete.

In addition to home maintenance, I’m known to build an occasional stick of furniture. Last year, I built a cabinet for our new TV. I also enjoy buying vintage items at yard sales and reselling them on Craigslist and at flea markets.
