Hi, it’s Julie, half of the Dandelion Dreams duo. I am so glad you stopped by.
I believe in creating our dreams. . . if you can dream it you can make it. Does it always come out perfect? Nope, but the best things in life are homemade and never perfect. I would like to share with you our attempt at a life of creating beautiful things, filling our bellies with delicious food, and making treasured memories in the process. If you love crafting, DIY projects, recipes, or decorating as thrifty (cheap) as possible then you have come to the right place.
On a more personal note:
Me and my husband, Mike, live in Illinois in a little bitty town. Well let me be truthful. It is actually so small it is not even a town- it’s a village. We are the village people (without a YMCA). We have five kids. Three of them are grown and have left the nest. I am a nurse turned stay-at-home homeschooling mama to our two youngest, my biggest DIY project to date and definitely the most rewarding. Mike recently retired and that is when we decided to take our hobbies to the next level and start a business selling the things that we love to make. From weeds to wishes to Dandelion Dreams.
A few of my favorite things:
- Coffee and LOTS of it
- Farmhouse, rustic, vintage style with a minimalist feel
- Old things
- Pillows- I may hoard them to the point of being a fire hazard according to Mike.
- My robe- this one is right up there with coffee
I hope you visit the shop and then come over and hang out with me on the blog. You never know what chunk of wood I will be giddy over or what awesome vinyl “sticker” Mike thinks he absolutely needs, which gives me more reason to play on my Silhouette Cameo.
Thank you for stopping by!
