Life is always more fun when you share it with friends. So I want to share what wakes me up in the morning, the things I can’t wait to tell you about, what I’m passionate about, and hopefully that you love too.
About Bluesky at Home
Bluesky at Home is about celebrating the home you create. Our homes are our safe places, our havens, our place to be creative in whatever way we enjoy. I hope that the projects, the recipes, the DIY, craft, or paint projects I share give you inspiration and help you make your home a place to celebrate.
Cook. I’ve been a cooking instructor for 14 years. My love of cooking began when I started working in the culinary program of our local Sur la Table. During my 4 years there, I worked with dozens of professional chefs, restaurant chefs, and cookbook authors. With a background and degree in education, I decided to combine my new cooking skills with my ability to teach. I launched La Cuisine Maison, an in~home cooking school. I also started teaching cooking classes at the Viking Cooking School, Williams~Sonoma and various appliance stores. As my reputation for providing first~class cooking classes grew, requests for private cooking classes for groups and organizations grew. And the more I taught, the more I loved it. Although Bluesky at Home is not a food blog, it is a place where I can occasionally share with you great recipes and super tips that you can use to be confident and creative in your own kitchen.
Food is a big part of entertaining and creating a welcoming home. For you, I hope that Bluesky at Home will be a place you visit not just for great recipes, but cooking tips, culinary techniques written just for home cooks, and ideas for using kitchen tools.
Create. I’ve always loved to make things. I’ve been a sewer since a teenager (Thanks, mom!) In the past several years, I’ve discovered a passion for painting vintage furniture and accessories. I enjoy sharing that know~how and projects with you. I absolutely love taking one thing and making it better: simple DIY projects to enhance our homes, organizational projects to make our spaces more efficient, and flea market finds transformed to something pretty and practical. Recently, I’ve become obsessed with using my Cricut Explore Air to create party decorations, vinyl decals and I love sharing tutorials on Cricut projects.
Do you love ideas for transforming the old and forgotten item into the new, pretty and useful? Ideas for projects to make your home prettier, more efficient, more fun? Then Bluesky at Home is a place for you to drop in and Create with me.
Celebrate. I love my home and I try to celebrate it everyday by making it a warm, pretty, and inviting place for my family and friends. I love your home too. I can tour homes, spend hours (if I had them.) looking through shelter magazines and Pinterest at beautiful homes and ideas for home decor. I love to share all that with you here at Bluesky at Home. And parties ~ I love nothing more than planning, decorating and hosting a party. You’ll see a fair amount of tablescapes here. Creating party enhancements, like place cards or cupcake toppers, with my Cricut Explore Air is a new skill so you’ll see how~to posts here that you can use for inspiration.That’s here, too. And since we love to celebrate the opportunity to travel, I share our travel adventures with you.
Do you love home decor? Decorating ideas? Creating a home and garden or outdoor living space to make your life more enjoyable? Do you love to learn about decorations and party preparations? This is the place to Celebrate with me.
I can promise you that I will give you my very best to give you ideas to create the home you want to celebrate. I invite you to follow Bluesky at Home and visit for a while. Everyone is a friend in my home.
