Welcome to the DIY lifestyle of a homeschool mom of 5! Today I want to explain to you a little bit about my vision for this addition and how I hope to continue to be a source of uplifting inspiration for anyone else living the DIY life!
This dream has been literal years in the making. So much went into consideration before hitting that record button. I want you to know I've spent months not only contemplating all of the technical side of it, equipment, skill building, etc, but also praying that I would become the kind of person that should be on a platform like YouTube.
It's a big responsibility to sit in front of an audience of any size and tell them your accomplishments and failures. It isn't something I take lightly.
But the drive behind it is pretty simple, I love all things DIY on a budget, Thrifting & Repurposing, and the challenge I accept every single time I enter into a project. But I also think to myself if I can help one person by sharing my struggles and triumphs then it's worth it.
My Vision Behind This Channel
What is it to live a DIY Lifestyle? Well, the best way to explain that is the saying Necessity is the Mother of Invention. When you have to you find a way, there's just no other option.
We're a family of 7 living on a single teacher's salary in SW Missouri, to put it plainly we are low income. But we make it work. It's tight, I'll admit it's a challenge. But to live the life we believe in and for me to be able to stay home with our kids and homeschool we have chosen the sacrifices it requires.
The DIY Lifestyle is figuring out how to solve problems in your small budget without sacrificing integrity or quality. It means extra work, slower progress, and the occassional fit of frustration or tears. But it is so rewarding. When your project is finished you will look back at it and the skills you will have learned are invaluable. And they're yours to keep!

What kind of Content Can we Expect on This Channel?
This channel is meant to be a compliment to this blog in every sense of the word, but deeper into the details and obviously a bit more into lifestyle than I delve into here on the blog.
But you can expect DIYs always on a budget, Handmade Home projects, Thrifting & Repurposing, as well as the occasional gardening content, motherhood, & Homeschooling thrown in to the mix. Basically, me and my life!
I don't suppose it's everyday that people let you into the back parts of a hectic life homeschooling 5 kids and renovating your entire home one project at a time. It's a crazy mess, but I love it and I hope it will be encouraging for anyone else going through a similar situation or lifestyle.
