“Life is about taking what's given to us 
and creating something wonderful.”
Belinda Jeffrey, One Long Thread 

Me: Mimi + Crisenberry = mimiberry

Thanks for visiting! If you enjoy finding DIY projects that can be done on a budget, then you are in the right place. My goal is to help empower you to take on projects that you thought were daunting (or too expensive), and equip you with the courage and knowledge to tackle something and succeed (and still have money to spare)! 

I strongly believe that happiness comes when we create. There are so many forms of creativity in this world, but I mainly focus on:
  • Furniture makeovers
  • Novice home improvement projects 
  • Home decor crafts

And almost 100% of these projects utilize mother nature's greatest resource WOOD. I love trees for the beauty they give us when they are alive, and well, when they are not alive. So thank you for joining me "in taking a tree's creations and making more creations."

My most prized creation---my family.


  1. Hi Mimi. I just stumbled upon your blog and love what I see! I just subscribed so that I dont miss any of your future creations. I could have written you bio...we have a lot in common. I, too, use too many commas! (And too many exclamation points!!!! :). I was a stay at home mom to my 3, now young adult, children. I love to create, love free stuff to create with, and LOVE, love, love pallet wood! I can't draw portraits, however (stick figures...yeah, portraits...no). You are very talented and your portraits are amazing!! Keep up the good work and enjoy the summer with your beautiful family!
    Your fellow creator,

    1. Thank you so much Donna! Great to hear from you. Wish I could meet my twin ;). What are you currently creating?
