About me

Hi there, my name is Marina and I am a fist time mom, arts &crafts addict and DIY enthusiast. I also am a photographer at Wickes Photography company, that me and my dear husband run.  I am a stay at home mom and blogging from Maryland, USA. This is the place where all my creations, inspirations and life events meet. I always wanted to run a blog long term, but every time I tried (and trust me I've tried MANY times) I failed. I think my mistake was trying to separate all of the things and  have blogs for each of them. It was very time consuming, tiring and just plain hard. You'd see me jump from one blog to another, forgetting to update...I wasn't consistent and it became  old and uninspiring.  It was more like a job that I didn't like but "had to" do. I lost interest and gave up. 

After a couple of years of unsuccessful attempts and learning tips from other bloggers like myself, I've decided to create a single place for all the things Marina loves to do and wants to keep up with sharing them. So here I am and so far I haven't regretted my choice. And I thought it would be a good idea to write down some things about my son and maybe (if i decide so) to show him my blog when he's old enough. 

oh and I am Ukrainian, my native language (naturally) Ukrainian, so beare with me while you read my writing ;)



  1. Good for you for focusing all of your energies on one space. And I'm sure all of the work you did on those other blogs prepared you for this one! Best of luck to you. And thanks for your sweet comment on my blog. ;-)
