This Is a Story All About How…

My life is about to be flipped turned upside down. I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, and tell you all about why I decided to start this blog.

Cheesy? Yes. Totally me? Definitely.

Welcome! This is me!

I’m Talitha. {It’s pronounced Tuh-lee-thuh. Can you tell I’m used to mispronunciations!?} It’s nice to meet you. [Curtsies]

I began this venture into the blogosphere not so long ago. I have been crafting and DIY-ing for as long as I can remember. I was that kid who made silver leaf book covers out of the foil on my gum wrappers. And then I would proceeded to fold tiny cootie catchers out of the remaining paper part. I am that girl who DIY’ed almost everything in my wedding. And I’m the girl who would much rather spend $20 and many hours of hard work to create a look that most would buy for $200. I’m a DIY’er at heart and I love it.

This all began when my darling husband, David, and I moved from Chicago to the beautiful Denver, Colorado and the gorgeous Rocky Mountains. Now you must understand, this was a big move. Not just because we were both born and raised Chicagoans, but we were both leaving full time steady jobs, our entire family, and everything we ever knew to move across the country. We left with high hopes and a bright, new, shiny job for David. We (wrongfully) assumed that finding me another job as a Registered Nurse would be no problem.

Several months later and still no job for Talitha, I had to find a new way to entertain myself. I had read all 3 Hunger Games books in a matter of 5 days so that didn’t do the trick. Darn.

I ventured my way onto a little website called Pinterest. You may have heard of it. And within the week I had a whole slew of new projects I wanted to do.

Months later, after being harassed by my dear sisters and mother, I decided to post pictures of my creations on Facebook. And WOW what a response I got! People I had rarely talked to, men, women, infants, unborn children all commenting about where my blog was and could they buy it. (Ok, maybe not the infants, but I definitely remember my almost-born niece wrote on there!)

And the seed was planted. After hearing from more and more people, I decided to consider it. And now, here I am! I love to DIY. I love to inspire people to roll up their sleeves and DIY. And I love to show them how.

So once again, welcome! I hope you take some time to look around and even drop me a line!
