We find our inspiration from so many places. Pinterest and the blogs of so many other talented people have provided us with countless ideas for how and what we create. We also find inspiration from our families, friends, and from each other. We can brainstorm together, work through hang-ups together, and motivate each other to continue creating.
The five of us are part of a large family that loves spending time together and working on projects together. We all have a never-ending list of home projects to work on. Most of us are also on a budget and have limited time, so we have to be judicious with how and what we spend our time and money on.
Our motivation for this blog is to have a place for us to share what we create, what inspires us, and to keep us motivated to keep doing what we love.
Here is a little bit more about each of us:

Michelle loves the wind in her hair and being on the move. She's usually scheming up some new adventure or ideas for her next creation.
