Hi Friends! Rayan, the Frugal Designer here! So excited to be visiting today with all of you. I just think Fireflies and Jellybeans is so fabulous and I am honored to be participating in a blog Swap with her! That's right, I am here and she is over at my site: The Frugal Designer , I hope you will stop over a say hello...maybe even poke around a bit!
This is me...if you don't know me (which you probably don't, I'm a bit of a newbie on the block):
Here are some of the fun things I have been doing on my blog lately:
I have recently started providing free furniture plans that you can easily build yourself! Some are knock offs like the Crate & Barrel table below and others are my own designs..come, see, and build! I provide easy step by step instructions and a list of materials to buy.
I have started cataloging projects in a directory of sorts...it is a place for you to find all of the amazing DIY projects from around the web. A one stop shop, for all things crafty and fabulous! Go explore...
This is the home of the HACK - where accessories and design are quite literally...HACKED! they are organized by project type and pictures of the original specialty retailer product. Below is an example of a project I recently HACKED...
I have added not only my own HACKS, but others as well!
I recently began helping others settle their Design Dilemmas for both home and yard. I will take on about 4-5 new dilemmas a month and help folks solve their design problems by offering a Mood Board, Segmented Shopping List, DIY project list and a layout if needed. Here is one I recently did for Angie and her Hill O' Dread...
Here is her dilemma...a steep yet narrow and very LONG hill backing up to a canal with dozens of walkers every day, can we say...needs privacy! click on the images to take you to the post to read more...

I try and put together some Land: Scapes that anyone can do on their own and are budget friendly...here is one I did for a Sunny Spot in your Yard: total cost $55!
