Joyfully Growing – About Us

Hi!! I’m Ashley and that’s my husband Mike. And we’re the faces behind Joyfully Growing Blog!

We create DIY tutorials and offer simple home decor tips that anyone can master.

I nerd out about finding creative ways to style the home without spending a lot of money. And Mike is a genius at figuring out how to make all of my crazy DIY designs come to life. 😉

After buying our first house and turning it into a home one DIY project at a time, we are taking on our biggest DIY project yet!

We bought an RV and are in the middle of renovating it to move into full time!

That’s right, we’re selling almost everything and downsizing to live in a home on wheels.

You can read about why we chose to live tiny (for now) and get all the details about our RV in this post!

I originally started this blog to be able to share our ongoing house projects with friends and family, but it’s quickly grown and now both Mike and I are able to work from home, blogging full time!

Which means even more puppy snuggles with our four-legged BFF, Sage. Don’t be surprised if she makes her presence known here with the occasional tail-waggin’ photobomb! 😉

Together with my love for DIY and Mike’s powertool obsession, we’ve turned our passions into a creative space to help others love the home they’re in without breaking the bank.

We offer education through step-by-step tutorials and downloadable printables so that you can go from overwhelmed to overjoyed when it comes to all things DIY, decor and design.

Most days you can find us at home sipping on homemade hazelnut lattes (iced for me!) creating new content for the blog. When we’re not blogging, we try to make time to get outdoors and explore the beauty all around us. Hiking is one of our favorite day-date activities and at night these homebodies love a good Netlflix binge! #FriendsMarathon #Again

We are so glad you stopped by our little corner of the internet we’ve lovingly named Joyfully Growing. Our prayer is that with the tips and tutorials you’ll find here, you will be able to enjoy your home and make more time for what matters most.

(Like laughing hysterically as you give your husband a piggy back ride like it aint no thing! ?)

Whether you’re a homeowner, a renter, or a full-time RVer ?, we believe that your home should be a place that brings you joy.
