I was born and raised in a small town in Northeast Texas and now reside in a much smaller (10x smaller) town in Central Texas. I’m a Marketing Analyst and consider myself incredibly lucky to be able to telecommute and be spared the 120-mile daily round-trip commute I did for so many years.
I’m a mother of four, with one still in the nest. I have a little furry Shih-Tzu named Holly – a birthday gift from my children in 2014.
Creating things is my passion. I’ve experimented with just about every hobby/craft you can imagine, but using a simple hammer and nails has been the most rewarding. This site is in response to many requests for a website, showcasing the little house I built. In all honesty, yes “I” was the crazy lady with the crazy idea that a woman could build her own house by simply purchasing a how-to book (“How to Build a House” from Lowes), but I had a lot of help from friends and family. That project is “mostly” done, but when is a house ever “done” really? If you’d like to see how I got to now, check out the “The Build” gallery for photos of the process!
