Hi there! My name is Elisha. If you told me 10 years ago that I'd be married, with 2 kids, working from home and living in the Phoenix suburbs, I would have never believed you.
I'm an independent, former hairstylist who loves building, thrift stores, and watching Nova documentaries. My husband, Bryce, is a structural engineer and one smart cookie. He's great for bouncing ideas off of. We live in Gilbert, Arizona with our 6 year old identical twin boys.
I come from a background of serious DIYers. Growing up, I don't remember either of my parents EVER hiring anyone to do ANYTHING! Seriously. If the dishwasher was broken, my Dad checked out a book from the library (remember those?) and fixed it himself. My mom sewed every curtain and pillow in our house, and all us 7 kids were enlisted to landscape the backyard.
One of the main goals of this blog is to demystify tools and the lumber section of the hardware store. PLEASE, feel free to ask questions if you don't understand something I talk about! I promise I'll try not over-explain.
Have fun DIYing! And keep posted for my upcoming projects!
