Hi! Welcome to Pinspired to DIY (formerly Pinspiration Mommy)! I’m Christine, a full-time working wife and mom who absolutely loves to create, craft, and build new things. I’m a bit of a late starter to DIY and crafting, but have gotten courage in the last few years to try to craft and create items for my home. I began this journey through inspiration found on Pinterest and through other women-run DIY blogs.
I had my daughter in my mid 30’s, and as I was searching Pinterest to find party ideas and decor ideas for her, I found a whole new world of female DIY bloggers and it was amazing! I realized I didn’t need to depend on hubster to do DIY projects, I could do them myself! (Don’t get me wrong, hubster still works on the big DIY home remodel projects, but now I can help!) But I found I CAN build furniture and decor for my home, and I can do it all on my own! Go me!
If you would have asked me ten years ago if I ever thought I would be using miter saws, table saws, and nail guns, I would have laughed my head off! But now, I use them all and more! (And I LOVE IT!) I am amazed at what I have been able to build by following free furniture plans online that have been offered by other amazing female woodworkers, but now I have moved on to coming up with my own furniture plans and creations, which is amazing to me, as I have never considered myself to be creative or crafty!
I hope to inspire my daughter to try new things that may be out of her comfort zone, and hopefully along the way, I’ll inspire some of my blog readers as well! You never know what you are capable of until you give something a try, you may surprise yourself! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about getting started with woodworking or crafting!
