I tried and failed at a lot of homemaking systems over the years. I read books that overwhelmed me with charts and steps and advice that I knew was wise and insightful, but it just didn’t work for me long term. I needed to understand my own passion and style of living first so I could develop a simple daily routine that actually made sense for me.
For years and years now, I’ve used four daily routines to keep my house what I call “clean enough.” These routines keep my home in fairly decent order even on the busiest of days. Having simple daily rituals is how I stay motivated and inspired at home! Once I found what systems and home making style worked for me and my season of life, and I made peace with my imperfection, I could enjoy and feel content with the home I had — rather than be overwhelmed or discouraged by it.
My ebook, NOT a DIY Diva is about nurturing a passion for being the creative keeper of your home. This isn’t necessarily a “how to keep house” or “how to decorate” book, but rather gentle encouragement I hope will inspire you to seek beauty in having a home (whatever place you currently call home!), no matter what your own limitations or struggles are. I hope it will encourage you to enjoy the process of a creating a comfortable home that is authentic and personal to you and your family!
