Let’s Connect!

How important is a warm and inviting home?
How important is it to be a self-sufficient family?

If your answer is, "VERY" then you and I (LMDH) are a good fit.

Love My DIY Home

My goal at Love My DIY Home is to provide my readers with ideas and tips on:

  • DIY projects for the home and family
  • Alternates to traditional healthcare
  • Preparing for a future family crisis

These are topics I have been researching and will pass on to you.

My project mantra is:

Project Mantra

I'm not going to show you how to cross stitch or how to use embroidery hoops to frame pictures. I want projects that look like they stepped out of a Pottery Barn catalog. Seriously, don't we all deserve to have a beautiful home and a healthy and happy family?

I have joined the Ultimate Blog Party to meet other bloggers with similar blogs to mine:

We are busy, busy people, but never too busy to make new friends and encourage others along the way.

But before you leave, I'm curious:

  • Are you a blogger in the DIY Niche?
