I’m Tammy and this is my creative space. I started this blog as a way to show women that they can build just about anything at a reasonable cost. I want to help women by sharing with them the exact steps that I use in building all sorts of things for any room in their home.
My dad is my inspiration. I have always said that I want to be just like him when I grow up. His dad passed away when he was 8 years old of Pleurisy and it always amazed me the kind of dad that he works hard to be despite not growing up with one himself.
He is a farmer and a carpenter and so hard work is a given. I would do anything to go outside just to be with him and he wasn’t afraid to let me learn. He would hand me nails and hammer and an old piece of wood and I would sit and imagine my creations while watching him work.
It felt like he could problem solve anything. If it didn’t work he would grunt, stare at it for a few moments and start a new plan. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t and the greatest lesson I will ever have learnt is being absolutely ok when it didn’t. Nothing phased him it seemed to me small eyes that watched in wonder and that stands true to this day.
He still comes when I need a hand, he still grunts/stands back and tries again and continues with the same positive attitude. And, I still stare in awe!
I can easily dedicate everything that I do in this blog to him!
