About Me

Welcome to Right up my Alley!

I'm Tracy, a 30-something wife and mom to four fun girls. I started this blog as a way to capture the projects in our home. We currently live in our second builder's grade home  where we are working on making it more our style. We live in the countryside of Maryland.

Through this blog I show things that interest me: inspirational ideas in design and decorating, DIY projects, gardening, travel, parties, arts/crafts, and whatever else inspires me! My hubby, Steve and I have made several things for our home to get the look we want without the big costs.  I hope to show do-able projects and things we're doing in our home. Come along for the adventures! 

Some of my work has been featured in:

Apartment Therapy          Cottage and Vine          Simple Details    



  I Heart Organizing         Centsational Girl               Home Depot
