Handmade Hangout (3)

Time for another fun round of Handmade Hangout! This week I want to introduce you to a real life friend (and someone who I cut it up with in NY on the Miele trip…) Christina is force to be reckoned with in the DIY world. She lives in a suburb of Philadelphia. Her and her sweet family are fixing up an old home….you must follow her!!


Each week we will introduce you to one of our hostesses and give you a chance to get to know everyone better! We will share a bit about our blogs, our passions, and exciting recent posts and projects we have been working on. Hey everyone! I am Christina and I blog over at Christina’s Adventures.  I share all about my adventures in DIY, home decor, and making my house a home on a tight budget. headshot I am a busy mom with a 21 month old boy who doesn’t like to sit down, and I’m 4 weeks away from giving birth to our second little baby!  As if that wasn’t enough, we are working on fixing up a 1902 Victorian house into our "forever home".  You can see all of the progress on my blog and on my Instagram (follow along using #FixingUp1902 to see how far we’ve come!)

And I just love using my little budget to make fun areas in our home, like this DIY art center I made for my little guy:

I love being a part of The Handmade Hangout – I hope you stop by my blog and follow along with all of my crazy adventures!
