Welcome to Dimely Design. The "design" portion of this blog is to serve two purposes: help others with design solutions and encourage myself, and other dormant artists, to continue to be creative. The "dimely" portion is to create timeless, or timely!, accents for your home on a budget. Every week, I'll feature a design solution, piece of art or frugal find. After all, you don't have to empty your wallet in order to fill your house!

To get started, I'll tell you a little about myself and why this blog has come into creation. I graduated with a design degree and have been a buyer for a modern furniture store for almost eight years. I am a painter in my almost non-existent free time. I really enjoy thinking out of the box to decorate my house while illustrating my style, values and uniqueness throughout my home.

So why do I say "my almost non-existent free time??" Well, I am a new mother of two very adorable, no really, they are VERY adorable, identical twin boys. They were my birthday present for the year 2007, and the best present I have ever received! Motherhood has changed my life, and of course the way I decorate!

I would like to thank my husband for always encouraging me to paint, even if it is to the point of annoyance, although I'm not annoyed, actually flattered he believes in me so much. Without that, I may have put my paintbrush down a long time ago. He is always there, ready to lock me in my studio, so that my creativity never hibernates again. Thank you, love of my life.

And another thanks to the mamas that have shown me the way to being thrifty. I've developed a new creative addiction: coupon clipping. How is that creative? Well, stick around, and you'll find out.
