Welcome to Projectville, a blog inspiring folks to be more creative with DIY, home decor projects, art, vintage finds, motherhood, beauty, and wardrobe.
My name is Rose and I’m a thirty something SAHM who has, what my husband describes as, a "project problem". I do not see it this way to say the least. A busy body? Yes. A woman with un-quiet hands, definitely. But a project problem? No sir. Not when I can spread the project love to all of you!
A little more about me: I used to be a graphic designer, I paint portraits, I have a serious addiction to estate sales (half-off day, baby!), I love decorating with pieces I've customized myself, I have my Masters degree in Social Science (Counseling), I chase a toddler around most of the day, my husband and I lived in Australia for 3.5-years before having our boy and moving back to Portland, Oregon.
Though life is hectic I’ve always found an outlet for my creative streak. I’ve been doing DIY projects, up-cycling furniture, and sewing a lot lately (I invented a special kind of baby activity blanket you can see here).
I decided to document it all in 2011, but took a 3-year hiatus starting in late 2012 when I started working full time. Now I'm back and will be posting creative projects, mommie stuff, random rants, beauty tips and tutorials, and a few special outfits.
My hope is that my blog will inspire you to be more creative, and will let my family feel a little more in-touch with me half-way across the country (I grew up in Minnesota, USA).
So, welcome! Let me know what you think. If you have ideas for posts or topics you’d like me to explore please share them with me, or if you would like to sponsor my quest, shoot me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for stopping and check back for something new a few times a week.
