OK. Here it goes. I am officially jumping head first into the world of blogging.

This is me, I'm Jen. These are my kids.

My life, like many stay-at-home moms (or blogspeak SAHM?), can be crazy. I have a husband, 4 kids, and we own our own business that I help run. We moved from our home state (Arizona) to a new state (Texas) and bought a house. Not just any house, but a foreclosed upon, relatively cheap and sad house in a great neighborhood. A house that had carpets that were used as litter boxes. For years. A house which hadn't had water turned on the landscaping for over a year. A very sad house indeed.

Sad, but lots of potential. I love renovating houses and have done major renovation projects in (almost) every home I've ever owned. So after winning this house with the highest bid on an ebay-like auction site, enduring three months of trying to close a house with a bank case manager in India (Sayeed something), and having only two weeks of renovating time before we had to move into it, life was chaotic. But the start of a new adventure.

A midst the chaos, I find time to indulge in my favorite activity. House projects. Renovating projects. Decorating projects. This is what I do when I don't have other stuff to do (and even sometimes when I do have other stuff to do that I am actively procrastinating). This is what I lay awake in bed at night thinking about. Projects. This is the outlet that keeps me sane. Which is why I've named my blog Decor Sanity. Because without it, I would definitely lose it. Well, more often anyway. So I hope you enjoy this new little blog project. And by you I mean the very small group of friends and family that I harass into reading this. :-)


  1. You're going to be great at this! It's right up your alley! I'm looking forward to all that project inspiration!

  2. Several online communities and repositories that now exist make it simpler than ever to start out|to begin} 3D printing even when one is totally new to creating 3D printable STL files. I had a lot of enjoyable downloading current designs from websites like Pinshape and Thingiverse, however finally I wanted to create objects of my very own. Unfortunately, I do not have a level in CAD or entry to any sort of 3D-design software. Free tool Tinkercad makes it Storage Bags Vacuum a snap for first-timers to create 3D objects for printing.
