About Me

Hi, I'm Therena, and thats my hubs Brian!  Welcome to my blog!
I have always been a crafty girl, and love creating, decorating, and transforming!
In recent years it has become more of an addiction!
We live in a one-story home in beautiful Mesa, AZ.  We have only been in the house for
a year, so there is still much to be done!
I love anything old, vintage, antique, rustic, shabby.....and I am constantly rearranging, adding, replacing, making, redo-ing, painting, and shopping at my favorite Thrift Shops!

Here's a little personal history:
A few years ago, at the age of 27 and after 7 years of marriage, I found myself single with two little boys.  It was an extremely difficult chapter of my life, but one that I will always be grateful for.
During this time, with the wonderful support of family and friends, I was able to go back to finish my schooling as a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (aka Ultrasound Tech).  Although it was rough, I truly enjoyed it!  But my passion always remained with decorating and all things crafty.
Then one day I was set up on a blind date.  I know, scary right?!  But he ended up becoming my amazing husband, and a fantastic father to my boys!

We have been married now for two years, and have since added another sweet boy to our family.
Because of Brian's love and support, (and a little bit of his man power!) I have been able to more fully explore my creativity, which is what sparked a desire to create this blog.  
So here is where I document the projects I try.  Some good, some not so much!  I hope in some way it is inspiring, or helpful...or humorous.... to someone!  

 This is a continual learning experience for me!
