Hi, I’m Kerri and Messy By Design is my love letter to life.  Here you’ll find my passions, my projects and my aspirations all wrapped up into one pretty little theme. And this blog is my outlet to share what I’ve learned and celebrate where I’m going. It’s a testament to dreaming big, living bigger and truly believeing no dreamer is too small nor dream too big. And I’m going to accomplish all this by following my heart and my happy, here with you every single day.

So what makes me happy?  Decorating, designing, styling, crafting…pretty much anything and everything you can fit in a house (second to my kids and husband of course).  You see, I was given these little gifts — I love to write and I excel at arts and crafts.   And until life got really messy for me, I thought my masters in “crafting”was a useless talent at best.  Turns out I was looking at life all wrong.  You can love what you do and do what you love, you just need to believe it’s possible.  I get it now, so watch me live it.

I’ll share with you the things that keep me up at night and the things that make me happy. I’ll show you what inspires me and if you want, we can craft until the morning light. I can be your therapist or your decorator or anything in between — because even though I love a well designed room, a fabulous find and a good DIY project as much as the next do-it-yourself blogger, as a friend, I know not every challenge needs to be met by yourself.  So come along for a merry ride.

If you want to know more about me, the mess that brought me to my knees or simply meet 3 adorable little boys you can sit back and read the long version or if you’re pressed for time the short is just that, short ‘n sweet.  Otherwise jump in!   Take a look around and let me know what you think… I’m on these little social networks too…
