Hello Friend and Welcome to Created by lj!

I am so happy you have found my little spot! I hope you enjoy your visit here.

I enjoy DIY, crafting, being thrifty and hopefully offering great tips and ideas to people that love the same things! You will find great ways to decorate (especially on a budget) tutorials, some of my favorite recipes and soon some of the decorating I’ve done in my home. If you are a renter, like me, I hope to offer you some fabulous ideas that won’t get you in “hot water” with your landlord.

So, grap a cup of coffee or your favorite beverage, and kick back and enjoy yourself. I’d also love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment or send me an email.

Have a sunny and happy day!!


I found this great photo and quote on Pinterest (I love Pinterest), and have wanted to use it somewhere. I don’t know who originally created it, but it describes where I want to be in my life perfectly! Does this describe you too?
