I’m Kelly and I’m here to help you celebrate each and every moment, the DIY way! If you ask me there’s nothing better than putting that personal touch on a party, wedding or any other event worth celebrating! If you’re new to Studio DIY® (Welcome!), you’ll find a whole lot of DIY projects, party tips and colorful ideas designed to help you inspire, create and celebrate. So gather your confetti and balloons and get ready to jazz up the holidays, and the every day!

Oh, you want to know a little more about me too?

I’m an east-coast transplant living in Los Angeles. I’ve been a DIY-er since birth, an entrepreneur since age fifteen and a freelance blogger and crafter for the past five years. Studio DIY is the culmination of everything I love and live for. And, I get to share it all with you! Boy, am I lucky, huh?

In other news, I’m a dog lover with a particular love for gold and a preferred diet of bread, cheese and anything that resembles breakfast or dessert. Or more preferably, breakfast for dessert (…and lunch, and dinner). I think confetti throwing should be a daily occurrence, I don’t see anything wrong with cracking open a piñata on a Tuesday morning, and I go to bed almost every night with glitter on my feet.

Studio DIY's Photographer

Jeff is my better half, or as I like to call him, my live-in photographer. If you see a photo with me in it, unless otherwise stated, there’s a good chance Jeff took it! As Jeff likes to say, “Someone once said to eat well and travel often. I’m trying my best.”
