Cynthia? Who's That?
My name’s Cynthia.
It’s so nice to meet you.
Who am I? I’m a joyful sawdust maker, avid DIYer and happy momma. When I’m not holding a power tool, a glue gun or my sweet baby, I’m tucked behind my laptop, busy writing or engaging with my awesome across social media platforms.
Who’re those good looking boys? My sweet son and handsome husband make their appearances throughout this blog. They live right inside the sweet spot deep in my heart provide motivation and joy with each heartbeat.
I met my husband when we both worked at the same university in northern California. After secretly crushing on him for weeks, he asked me to go hiking with him. After our first date, we became inseparable. He’s the kindest, strongest man I know, and I cannot imagine my life without him.
We got married on a beautiful, sunshiney day at an old ranch in the California mountains. Even looking back so many years later, I pinch myself at how gorgeous it all was. And yes, I did a ton of DIY projects leading up to the big day!
I met the second love of my life, my silly and curious son, in late 2015. Becoming a mama has been the greatest adventure of my joyful life, and I can’t wait to see what the future unfolds!
Having my doctorate in education, I’m committed to using my blog to showcase content that’s informative, empowering and inspirational. (Yep, when it comes to school, I went all the way.) During my days, I empower educational institutions towards excellence, and at night, I bring that same level of passion and quality to my blog and DIY hobbies, while of course laughing my way through all the (many) stumbles.
I’m so glad you’ve found this website! Definitely reach out with any questions you may have, enjoy poking around, and as always, all my love from my house to yours.
