Hi Friends! Welcome to Design Improvised!


Design Improvised is a site dedicated to simple DIY projects that make a BIG impact. If you love crafting and decorating but don’t have a lot of time to spend on it, then this is the place for you! My simple projects are made for those precious 30 minutes of kid-free or work-free time that you can spend doing what you love – MAKING! Many of the projects on Design Improvised can be completed in under an hour with simple tools like a glue gun and craft paint. I hope to inspire you to take inexpensive materials and everyday objects and turn them into something beautiful!

A Little About Me

I’ve been creating ever since I was a child growing up in Nebraska. You can see the rules I drafted up for my first craft club below. I still try to follow those rules today. ;)

I currently live in San Antonio, TX with my husband of 11 years, Ross, and our two daughters Stella (7) and Hazel (5). Previously, I've lived in Chicago, Boston, and Philadelphia - all cities that I love! I graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Marketing and spent 7 years as a management consultant prior to starting a family. 

I started this blog in 2011 after my first daughter was born and it has been an adventure to watch it evolve and grow from a personal blog to a creative business. I truly believe you should "Do what you love; love what you do!". I hope Design Improvised becomes a place where you can be inspired to do what you love!
