"We've always had a passion for DIY, it's one of the reasons we got married," Brad and Tim tell eHow. "Our Creator/Influencer careers took off when we purchased a fixer upper home in 2020 during the pandemic. A lot of friends and family were interested in our progress, so we started sharing it on Instagram and TikTok."
"Christmas has always been a special time for both of us and our families," they add. "Gifts don't always have to be purchased, they can be made, baked, crafted, just as long as they come from the heart.
As for their DIY style, they describe it as "champagne taste on a beer budget!" The DIYers note, "It doesn't cost a lot of money to have nice things if you're willing to put in the time to make them."

"Growing up my dad was always DIYing something for the house and my mom always had something crafty in the works (I especially remember the most amazing handmade Halloween costumes!)," she reveals to eHow. "Fast forward many years later, and I launched my career as a DIY creator in a moment of panic. I had quit my job as a lawyer to stay home with my kids, and realized a few months in that I needed something 'else' for myself. I started my blog on a whim and cannot believe where it's taken me all these years later."
