Hi! I’m Tiffany – thanks for stopping by!
I am a homeschooling mama to four cute kids, and married to one awesome guy! I love to sew, build, and craft. I have a ridiculous obsession with Pinterest. Seriously there may need to be an intervention!
I love using power tools to build furniture and decor for our home. My maiden name also happens to be Carpenter. Thus, Carpenter Girl! I want this to be a place where I share with you the tips and tricks I have learned over the years.
I have always had a passion for crafting, but once I was married, with my own home and kids on the way, my crafting obsession passion kicked into full gear!
I have spent countless hours perusing various blogs, searching for the best sewing and crafting tutorials. This is how I taught myself how to sew. I went from being afraid of my sewing machine, to sewing all sorts of fun things for my kids.
As a young married couple with a baby on the way, money was tight. So my passion for DIY projects began out of necessity, but has continued to grow over the years. I love taking a worn out piece of furniture and making it come to life again. I also enjoy creating decor for our home, and toys for our kids.
Growing up I watched my dad and brothers build all sorts of things, from a barn to a playhouse, and everything in between. I never imagined that someday I would teach myself some of those same skills. Luckily they are still nearby if I have any questions.
After my husband and I built our first project together, I took over and started building on my own, learning along the way. John helps when he can, but I usually can’t wait for the weekends or for him to get home. You can often find me working on projects during nap time!
I have learned how to use all sorts of tools through trial and error (safely of course), and by watching various videos on YouTube. I am slowly building my own collection of tools. I hope to share the reviews and tutorials that I have found to be helpful. I am still a work in progress, so come along with me on this journey!
I don’t proclaim to be a Parenting Expert (Does such a person actually exist?), but I will share various tips and activities we use in our home.
We also homeschool, so from time to time I will share little tidbits from our adventure in homeschooling!
Craft Parties & Shop
I have a passion for teaching. Combine that with my passion to craft, and you arrive at my happy place! I love teaching other people how to create something beautiful that they are proud to display in their home.
For my farmhouse sign parties, I provide all of the materials and instructions. The hostess provides the venue (usually her home), and any refreshments she wishes to serve. For more information about hosting a sign party click here.
I also take orders for “made to order” farmhouse house signs and other home decor items. Check out my shop to see what is available for purchase. Custom Orders welcome!
