Hi, I'm Marlene, a DIY fanatic, baker, cat mom, and blogger from Boston. I thrive on that unique feeling of joy you get from making something yourself, which is why I blog at Idle Hands Awake, where I share my passion for DIY projects and inspire new creatives to get comfortable making. When not covered in paint, glue, or sawdust, you can usually find me curled up with my cat Jax and a chai latte, binge-watching a B-rated fantasy show or scheming what crafty skills to tackle next.
