Joined 8 years ago from Oregon




Hi there!  My name is Brooke.  I am a child of God, a wife to a wonderful, patient and loving husband and a mom to two wonderful daughters.  I have started on a journey of making my house a home. I am trying to add a little bit of uniqueness, personalization and charm to my home.
I should start off by saying that I am probably the least artistic & creative person that you would ever meet :-)
However, I have learned that anyone can recreate and learn from others.  I only look at magazines and learn from the fabulous bloggers (that actually know what they are doing), and try some of their ideas for my own home. 
I have always waited to have a beautifully decorated home until I had the money or the right house worth decorating.  I have since decided that no time is better than the present. 
I recently started a new blog to share my projects.  Come visit me over at www.spruceyournest.blogspot.com
