It is my desire, through Paper Daisy Design, to share creative, affordable ideas for updating your home with style, livable beauty and purpose. Often, these ideas include building projects with detailed instructions and plans for the designs. My vision and hope for this blog is that you will find joy in creating a happy home and learn to make something with your own two hands, even if it is something you’ve never done before!
I’m Leslie, Louisiana native happy to be back in the south after 6 years in Missouri. I’m a mom of two teenagers and I married to a great guy, Richard, who always makes me laugh, who encourages me to explore my creative pursuits, no matter how varied and willing comes along on my DIY journeys.
A freelance graphic designer by trade, I’m channeling my creativity into a passion and joy for solving my own decorating dilemmas while making my home more beautiful on a budget. That passion is what has led me to this place, where I share my ideas and inspire you. Whether it is building a new project, bringing new life to a thrift store find, transforming a tired piece of furniture or just decorating and renovating our home, the joy of creating and the satisfaction in saying, “I did that.” is what drives me.
Through this blog I hope to encourage and inspire you to be able to say, “I did that.” too! I want you to find joy in creating beauty in your home and have that satisfaction of doing it yourself. God has given each of us talents and most of the time those talents are immeasurably more than what we see in ourselves. I hope you are inspired to find your creative self, happily!
