I would love to earn a living writing a blog about do it yourself projects. I often look through decorating magazines and websites for the latest styles. I love to imagine the pages of the magazine transform my own home. It becomes apparent that most of the items are out of my financial reach. I have three children; a daughter in nursing school, a son in his last year of high school and my youngest daughter entering her sophomore year of high school. My financial responsibility is to them and not high end furniture or custom cabinets.

I thought if I couldn’t afford it maybe I could make it. I started with refinishing furniture and went onto stenciling walls, and tiling. I would love to help other also make their home special by reading my blog.

I would start a DIY blog with a monthly projects. The blog would have step by step instructions and picture of each step. At the end would be a section for comments and questions that I would answer. I feel the blog would give the reader a sense of joy and accomplishment that would empower them to take on anything in life.
