Hi! I’m ilene! I’m a type A, control-freak who loves to create things! A web designer by day and a dreamer by night. I started this blog to document all the projects that are swimming in this crazy little head of mine. My poor husband is consistently baffled with my far-fetched ideas, I think he’s starting to wonder what he got himself into when he asked me to marry him! It’s not uncommon for him to come home to find me (and the kitchen) covered in sawdust, our spare bedroom strewn with craft supplies or me off on the latest craigslist bargain hunt. I’m blogging my adventures here to prove to him that I’m not crazy and that other people might actually enjoy what I do. My hope for this site is that my projects will inspire YOU to create, too!! If I can do it, so can you! Come on and join in on the fun!
I grew up in southern CA, went to college in the South at Duke University and spent the majority of my twenties in Boston where I went to grad school at Harvard. I currently live in the great city of San Francisco with my husband Jeff and daughters Zoey and Skylar.
Loves: Jeff, bubble tea, Duke basketball, the color pink, sunshine, writing with excessive exclamation marks (!!!) and Huggy
Vices: coffee, People magazine and reality television
