Welcome to DIY Happy Home!

Where all my favorite happy home tips come together!

A house is made with walls and beams. A home is built with love and dreams.

My name is Carla, I am excited to write about all the things I love that make me happy at home! 😊I love crafting, home projects, decorating for the holidays, cooking, baking, shopping, finding bargains, and sharing products that I love, and I will include some product reviews as well. I hope you will join me here at DIY Happy Home!

First, let me tell you a little about me. I am married, with 3 young children; an 8 year old daughter, and 5 year old twin boys that like to keep me busy.

After the birth of my twins in 2014, I decided it wasn’t financially feasible for us to put 3 kids in daycare, nor did I want to. So, after 17 years working as a web content administrator, I decided (along with my husband) to give the company I worked at my two weeks notice to be a stay at home Mom. I will never forget the feeling I had when I was walking to my car on my last day at work after working there for 17 years. It was a feeling of happiness, excitement, nervousness, and some fear too, all rolled into one!

While I do not miss working at an office, I do miss socializing with adults and adult conversation. I have started to look for ways to use my creativity in a therapeutic way. It calms me and it works for me. I am hoping you will tune into my next post where I will be doing a craft. See you then!
