Hello and Welcome to Dakota Creek Chic!!
I’m Shawna, a busy, working mom to 2 boys under the age of 5. Why I decided I might have time to take on a new project…like starting a blog…is actually beyond me at the moment. I may just have to get back to you on that one!
The truth is, I am super excited about this blog. I am passionate about home decorating, renovating and repurposing. I am a lover of all things thrifty and love spending hours walking around flea markets, thrift stores, antique shops and yard sales searching for diamonds in the rough. It’s easy for me to see the potential in shabby pieces, and I love spending time making things beautiful again.
That being said…my collection of JUNK is growing bigger and bigger and I need to get to work!
I have always enjoyed decorating, and I feel like over the years I have collected, rearranged, painted, changed, repurposed…without any true direction of what I wanted my “finished project” home to be. Is there such a thing as a finished project?? That might actually be sad! Anyway, at the end of the day, I feel like I still have so many things on my to do list and I feel like all my rooms have some fabulous things, but NONE of them feel completely put together and finished.
So I am on a quest to create that beautiful home. I don’t want it to be perfect and I am definitely willing to get my hands dirty along the way. No corner will go unnoticed!! I am excited to try my hand at things I have never done before (can you say reupholstery??) and I hope you can laugh and probably cry with me along the way.
I’ll share my take on making my home a cozy, beautiful, stylish and organized space…while taking into account the realities that come with parenting, wife-ing, working, budgeting, and just living life!
I hope you leave here inspired, I hope you stop by often, and I can’t wait to share this journey with YOU!
I would love for you to link up your favorite projects every Friday at my Weekend Beautiful Blog Party!!
I just wanna say thanks! For reading this blog. Thanks for following me. I have found the best outlet and I am really loving it so much. I am amazed by all the beautiful blogs out there and feel so inspired reading them.
