I can hardly believe it, amazing friends. Eight years! My first post went live eight years ago yesterday, and I still cannot get over it! To celebrate and to say THANK YOU to all of you, my amazing blog family, who have made this dream life possible, I have a fantastic giveaway!!
But first, I thought you may like to hear the story of how I started my blog, so here goes…
In my pre blogging days, I was a registered nurse, a far cry from where I’ve ended up, huh? I decided to stay home when my youngest was born. I figured I would go back to work when he started school. But a couple of years in, I found myself craving a creative outlet. I had done craft markets with my parents for about 15 years and had always painted furniture, painted kitchens, installed hardwood floors (Now in three houses!), laid tile floors, you name it, I was willing to give it a try! I was following a couple of blogs at the time, and I would look forward to each new post, and then one day I thought, I could totally do that! And so I did. Confessions of a Serial DIYer was born. I decided on that name because all my life, I have gone from project to project, doing things myself…a Serial DIYer!
I feel so incredibly blessed that I get to do this for a living, and I could not call this my life if it weren’t for each and every one of you! So THANK YOU!!
I am giving away THREE $100 gift certificates to spend in my Etsy Shop any way you choose!

My dear friend, Nancy from Artsy Chicks Rule, is ALSO celebrating eight years of blogging this month!! What a coincidence that we started our blogs within days of one another, in the same niche, and only live about 40 minutes from one another! We connected pretty quickly, but it was at our first blogging conference back in 2014 when we roomed together that we really got to be great friends!
Here we were testing out a comfy mattress at the conference.
And we’ve been blogging besties ever since! If you like what I share around here, you’ll love her too if you don’t already follow her!
She also has a fabulous giveaway for ya’ll today:
Right?? Head on over to her blog HERE to enter to win!!
I’ll be back on Tuesday with this thrift store headboard:
Have a great weekend!!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
