Christina Dennis, The DIY MOMMYThe DIY Mommy is a crafty DIY & lifestyle blog about making things for mommy, for baby and for home. It features free sewing patterns and tutorials, family-friendly recipes, home decor ideas, knit and crochet patterns, DIY business advice and so much more crafty goodness!

Hi there! My name is Christina Dennis and I created TheDIYMommy.com in June of 2009. I’m a mom of three girls living on an acreage west of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

The DIY Mommy started as a place where I could share fun baby crafts when my first daughter was 6 months old and it slowly morphed into something more – a varied collection of crafts for not only babies, but for moms and homes too. I also share little snippets of my life as a work-at-home mom along the way.

I’ve been honoured to have written for such print publications as Urban Infant and Alive Magazine. I’ve also appeared on local TV stations and presented at top Canadian home shows as a DIY expert. I’ve had the pleasure of partnering with great brands such as Lowe’s, Intel, Nokia, Keurig, Staples, Sears, Weight Watchers and Interac.

I love sewing, decorating, sleeping, making cookies, singing, playing piano, playing with my girls and messing around on my computer. I hate sports, organizing, cleaning my house and driving in the big city.

Here’s a video with a little more about this blog and YouTube Channel:
