Welcome to The Handmade Home! We’re so happy to have you to our little corner of the www where you’ll find a little bit of everything on life, DIY spirit, inspiration and fun. College sweethearts and homeschooling parents to three, we currently reside in the tropics of south Alabama, where we’ve perfected the art of sipping sweet tea and operating power tools.
We believe in striving for a genuine, intentional life, and that creating a home shouldn’t be complicated, ridiculously expensive, or to the trade only exclusive. A realization hit us a few years ago when we decided to stop pining away for that perfect farmhouse kitchen and embrace the now in doing it ourselves – There’s no such thing as a dream home, because nothing is perfect. We find this tidbit of information kinda freeing. It’s your home, now, and no one else’s – Not the future home’s owners, not your sister in law’s cousins… yours. Stop waiting for tomorrows, and opportunities. They’re here, now. And everything is going to be amazing.
It’s just our simple take on creating a haven for the every day.
