Kathy - contributor

Howdy, I’m Kathy. A mother, marine wife, and handmade decor creator. I get a kick out of coming up with creative ideas to overcome rental challenges and to find ways to have high end design without spending a fortune. My decorating philosophy is that everyone can and should have a space they love no matter what their living situation is.

I love making things, crafting with my little girl , tweaking our small home with my DIY adventures & thrift-ed finds and of-course devouring the home-decor blog world off all its goodness.

Hey there, I’m Iris!  Never one to sit still, I’m always working on some sort of project.  It may be a whole room makeover, small decor changes around the house, or crafts according to the season.  Whatever it may be, you can be sure I’ll be sharing it with you in hopes of inspiring you to do the same!
