Riding the home ownership rollercoaster.

(In the front row. With my hands way up over my head. And no lap bar. Ok... maybe I need a lap bar...)

Hello! My name is Amy and I serve home owners by sharing resources to make their home (and garden) projects fun instead of overwhelming. I've found that most home owners are enthusiastic about personalizing their homes but struggle with prioritizing and organizing projects... especially when there's so much to be done. So, I've created all types of planning and organizing products (plans, ebooks, worksheets, kits) so you can plow through your projects and start enjoy your home.

Once you get to that comfortable space where you have a plan and you aren't stressed or overwhelmed, you'll start dreaming up projects that will really make a difference in how you live. And that, my friend, is how you'll know that you're finally home.
