Hi! I am Kelly. I am an artist, entrepreneur and adventurer from Western Wisconsin.
I love random, spontaneous adventures. I love traveling all over the United States, especially to places I have never been before. I love creating. I have always been interested in art, projects, and working hard since I was very young. I grew up in a household with a dad that was always including me in his projects, whether it was sweeping up the sawdust after he cut wood, unscrewing the oil filter under a car during an oil change, or helping him hammer nails into a deck. I was also blessed with a mother who was so great at keeping my siblings and I busy with craft and baking projects.
As a child, I was continually challenged to grow and step outside of my comfort zone, while learning useful skills that have now come into play in a great way in my life. I take pride in including my two children in many projects that I work on. Besides Endless Acres Farmtiques, I am also a photographer, and I also enjoy creating all kinds of jewelry and art as well. I am employed with Hope Gospel Mission at Hope Gospel Mission Bargain Center where work part time from home and I specialize in online Social Networking.
I am the proud mother of 2 precious children, who I guide in online home school and the wife of a hard working husband. We live on a 5 acre hobby farm in outside of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, with our dog, Django, and our six hens, Millie, Helen, Lucy, Mama, Emmie Lou, and Bess. We are working on truly making this farm a little homestead and getting back to the roots of what life was like back in the days of a more self sufficient time.
I started the Endless Acres Farmtiques D.I.Y. blog several years ago, when I had several people contact me asking me to start one and share how I do things and to be a source of inspiration for others looking to tackle tasks and projects around their own home.
I love the whole process of transformation. That is where I find beauty, in the process of change, in the faith of possibility and in the transformation of something that was into something that now is.
Just as God allows us to to transform ourselves into something greater with His love and tender care, I believe that pieces of furniture and unwanted household items can also be rescued, renewed, and once again re-loved.
There is so much beauty in stepping back and looking at something after it has been transformed. I understand, that to see, feel and imagine the possibilities in something doesn’t always come easy, which is why I have created this blog to help others start to view items with a new set of eyes and to learn to see possibility in the ordinary.
