The girl behind the blog~

I am your hostess with the mostest Kim owner and author of Made in a Day. Welcome to my DIY Craft Blog! It all started late 2011 when I happened to be searching around for some DIY inspiration and started noticing all the craft blogs out there. That was my ah ha moment when I realized that I had a lot of knowledge and ideas in this area to share! So here I am!

I started out as an Art student, then I went into the field of Cosmetology. I worked in the Hair Replacement Industry, designing and maintaining, wigs and hairpieces for 13 years.  I have one class left to finish Floral Design school, and just recently finished classes for Blog & Web Design. I have always been a DIY’er and avid junker, re-purposing the old and new. So here I am to share my knack for all things crafty with you. I hope you enjoy my blog. It grows a little more everyday! So check back often!  If you would like to pick my brain a little about how I go about creating this blog check out my Behind the Scenes Blog Resource Guide.

  1. I think I came across your blog from… Can’t remember! Anyway, your DIYs are amazing and I can’t wait to catch up on your archives!

  2. Kim, did you have any problems when you hot glued the burlap together ?
    Do you have any good tips when using the hot glue gun on the burlap ?
    Thanx sooooo… much !

  3. Hi Kim
    I like your blog, your’e a very talente lady !

    Can you please tell me how many burlap squares should I cut? Is there two rows on the back of the wreath ?

    1. Hi Debz,
      Looks like I had 6 rows from the pics. I do not have the wreath anymore to check exactly. There aren’t any rows on the back of the wreath. Add as many layers as you need to cover the straw wreath. Cut as many squares of burlap as you need. Thanks for liking Made in a Day!

  4. Hi Kim! Found you through Mique’s mixed up party this week. I did the beauty school thing too & find it funny how often I refer back to it when talking to design clients. I pulled out the old “pre-conditioning treatment before color” concept to explain to a lady why she would want to precondition her wood floors before staining. Her husband thought I was a wacko but she totally got what I was saying w/that example. :) Nice to meet ya!

  5. Hi Kim! So nice to meet you. What a fun background – art then cosmetology then floral design then web design!! You’re a jack of all trades. Thanks so much for linking up your About Me page for my Pity Party this week. Have a great weekend. xo
