Hello and welcome. I’m Katie, a single mom of two precious boys and the founder of Creatively Living Blog.
I first started this blog for my immediate family and closest friends.
They were constantly asking for home improvement DIY tips and home décor ideas because they were well aware of my extensive experience in interior design.
Soon enough, I noticed the number of views going up and realized that many people needed a little help around their homes.
That’s why I decided to make this blog a full-time hobby while working as a full-time interior designer and being a good mom at the same time.
Eventually, my blog became my full-time job. Working at the office while being a full-time mom took a toll on my mental and physical health, so I had to find another way to earn while being there for my babies.
I use this blog to express my creativity and encourage others to express theirs with budget-friendly crafts, DIY tips, recipes, handmade clothes, and much more.
The best part? If you apply my tips and tricks, you can create spaces you love on a budget. As a single mom of two, I’ve had to learn how to save money while staying creative, and I intend to pass my wisdom to other creative souls.
Now, let’s discuss the purpose of this blog in detail.
What’s the Purpose of the Creatively Living Blog?
“You use a glass mirror to see your face. You use works of art to see your soul.” – George Bernard Shaw
I sincerely hope this blog can empower people and ticking their creative side. It’s a blog about all creativity, including home improvement, DIY crafts, home décor, ideas for your interior and exterior, and much more.
Honestly, I sometimes think of my blog as a virtual journal where I can proudly show my ideas, adventures as a young single mother, and life journey.
As you can notice, if you quickly browse through the Creatively Living Blog, you will see that it’s all about DIY.
I’m obsessed with remodeling and DIY projects, and I love sharing all the details of my creative adventures with my readers.
Moreover, I hope to find and connect with like-minded people who share my passion for crafts so that we can make pretty things together.
So, this blog is for you if you’re a DIY enthusiast and crafty freak always looking for practical and cheap ways to make your home look and feel better.
The blog has different sections for kitchen, interiors, and home improvement, where you can find simple yet brilliant ideas on taking your creative game to the next level and handy tips for people who aren’t very skillful at repairs like me.
In a nutshell, this blog is a favorite go-to spot for creative souls looking for a little inspiration.
