Welcome to Hubpages!

Writing is one of my favorite things to do so after a friend urged me to join HubPages in 2010,  I decided to give it a try.  I am so happy that I did!  I have found that HubPages has a wonderful community of talented writers and many of them have been extremely helpful to me along the way.  I've also met many new friends here from all around the world. Another great thing about HubPages is the income potential.  I actually make a monthly income now just by writing about things I love.

As far as the hubs I have written, you will find DIY craft projects, budget decorating projects, lots of craft tutorial round-ups, my own craft tutorials and creative ways to reuse, recycle and repurpose (or upcycle) things into lovely crafts and decor for your home!  And pretty much anything else that I have felt inspired to write about.

Thank you for stopping by and reading my BIO.

Happy Hubbing!
