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…..
