The Purpose of She Makes a Home is to share my experience as a work-at-home mom. I live to find possibility in every situation. I'm a nester - I LOVE to be at home! If you love making your house feel like a home; if you stay home with your children; if you'd like to, or already do, work at home - then this is the place for you!
Below is just a taste of what I have written over the last 4.5 years. You can use the categories to the right, or get started below!

Managing a home is also important to me. I'm a first-time homeowner, so I'm just getting started myself.
I've been making my home over, room-by-room; I also do many DIY decor projects; decorate for the holidays; and round up some of the best home trends out there.
You might also be a Do-It-Yourself-er.
I've written many projects for home solutions, such as cleaning; gift-making; decor; and household items. Check out:
Part of making my house a home is cooking and baking.
You're not likely to find money-saving, time-saving, freeze-3-months-ahead recipes on She Makes a Home. I'm more interested in pampering you - you who works, lives, and possibly raises children at home.

I'm a Work-at-Home mom myself
I've been there. I know what it's like to start a new endeavor from home. I was a college student with no kids when I got started, and in the last five years, I've graduated, had two children, moved 4 times, and bought a house. I want to be there for you, and help you discover the possibilities that are waiting for you.
