Company/organization description

Taking the DIY market trend and linking it to our own personal experiences in both the DIY and cancer communities, we thought through ways to help cope with the struggles in and around our lives. Our Company uses a blogging platform to create a cross-section between the DIY community and the cancer community. We offer a place to be inspired by blog projects, take online building classes, purchase handcrafted decor items, download project design plans, and build relationships between communities.
