Hello, welcome to Food and DIY!
Here you will find delicious recipes (most of them easy, some of them kid-friendly) and fun farmhouse-inspired DIY projects.
Originally this blog was a lifestyle blog that focused on a wide variety of different topics. I was a happy stay at home mom that wanted to have a creative outlet and a way to occupy some of my free time. If someday I happened to be able to make an income from my blog then awesome. Eventually, I found what I really like to do (photograph food and pretty home decor) and narrowed my topics down to Food and DIY.
Now I am able to help provide a little extra income with this blog and a couple of other online marketing side jobs. If you’d like to know more about how I make money with Food and DIY, click here.
I love to partner with brands to create new recipes and items to provide to my readers. Find out more on my PR page.
