Welcome! My name is Janelle and this is my little farmhouse!

I moved onto our acreage two years ago with my boyfriend, Wade. We have been together since I was a junior in high school. I am 21 years old and just graduated from a two year degree in accounting. I currently work as a secretary for a family member’s company. Wade is a farmer and a truck driver. Our home has been in his family three generations. We do not have any children yet, but we have three cats and a dog.

I am a very quiet and shy person that has always had an interest in art. I realized my passion for interior design when I started projects on our home. I love to decorate, but I also love to do small renovations. I had never used tools before so I was nervous to get my hands dirty, but it came natural once I started.

My inspiration is Joanna Gaines. Many of you have probably heard of her. She and her husband have a show called Fixer Upper. My style developed from her and chips renovations. Although I love many HGTV shows, I feel theirs is very uplifting. They don’t focus on the bad, they keep the show a very happy feel. I love the way she cares for her family and keeps her priorities straight. If you haven’t seen the show yet, I definitely recommend it.

I have a dream of eventually decorating and designing for people. I have only worked on my home so far, but I would really like to branch out. I love to tackle DIY projects and would like to show everyone that it’s possible to do. I have a problem with believing in myself. Painting was no problem, but using a saw frightened me at first. It’s all about taking that first step. I want to encourage others to take that step they are scared to take. You never know what you could be capable of unless you try.
