Articles by DIY Maven

Although I'm a writer by education and profession, I have a not-so-secret DIY and craft (of almost any kind) addiction. I'm the author of Mason Jar Nation (Cool Springs Press, spring 2016), and the co-contributor to the three Make It! books in the Curbly how-to library.  I invite you to visit,, where I gather all my original how-tos.  When I'm not blogging or DIYing, I write fiction and explore photography.
