Into DIY About Me pic

Hi, I’m Jayme and welcome to Into DIY!

I was born and raised in the south and moved away to CA for a few years with my family before finding a way back to my hometown. I live in a growing corner of Arkansas with my family.

I’m lucky to have a somewhat tech-y hubby who can be pretty handy when he wants to be (like, when I make him)! We have 3 kids who are quickly becoming not-so-kid-like: our daughter is almost grown and our two boys are just a few years behind her. We also have a couple furry family members…our cat, Sooie and our dog, Razor (Go Razorbacks – it’s an Arkansas thing!)

I’ve always been a creative, artistic, opinionated woman who enjoys a variety of things; from reading and writing to analyzing/solving problems and creating solutions.

I have worked as an analyst, investigator, project manager, home/office organization designer, and technology/sales consultant. One day, I’d love to be able to say I spend all day making projects!

I’m really into DIY projects because I can customize everything and (usually) make it for less! Too often I find myself admiring something at a store, then I see the price tag and say, ‘Nevermind’. It sort of became a joke when I’d go shopping with my daughter or a friend…I would scoff at the price and then say, ‘I could totally make that for less’ …and then I would!

I figured if I was going to be making things, I’d like to share the processes/projects with other like-minded people!

The purpose of this site is to encourage/inspire others to explore making things themselves – for less! I share DIY’s & How-To’s for crafts, home decor, health & beauty, organization, woodworking and more.

I’d love for you to stick around awhile and explore more…..

If you like home decor DIY projects, start by checking out this stenciled throw pillow project.

If your passion is DIY crafts try this bubble wreath tutorial.

If health & beauty DIY’s are more your style, try this Body Scrub recipe.

And if we sound a like kindred spirits…AWESOME! Create with me!
