A Little Background About Me

Hi! I’m Jenna and I grew up in Cork, Ireland. I married a Boston boy and we now live in the Boston suburbs with our 4 little boys.

I hold a bachelor in Business Information Systems and two Master’s Degrees – one in Business Information Systems and the other an MEd in Elementary Education. I’ve used both these degrees to help further my business since they marry two of my passions: technology and education!

We currently own a 1960’s Colonial on a large lot. This blog is dedicated to my adventures in remodeling and redecorating our house, one project at a time! We love to DIY when we can, but we also know our limitations and when it’s better to hire out the work.

As a kid, I spent my play-time constantly decorating my Barbie’s dollhouse and ripping pages out of magazines for my “dream home”.  I guess the home design bug has always been part of me! I’m also obsessed with fashion and beauty and love cooking!  My home is by no means perfect, but it’s improving one project at a time.

I truly believe that everyone can have a beautiful home, no matter what your budget is! I have poured every last piece of advice into my popular ebook, Home in Progress. If you want a gorgeous home but don’t have a ton of money or don’t even know where to start, this book is for you!
