Hi, I’m Jaime and I write That’s My Letter, a DIY project focused blog with an emphasis on building, painting and sewing. All my life I’ve been painting, drawing, crafting and making things. I grew up in Minnesota and then majored in Studio Arts at a liberal arts college on the East Coast. While there, I worked in the costume shop for the theater department, met my now husband of 12 years and then went on to work for an interior design firm in New York City. We have 3 young children and now that they are all school age I have shifted my focus to do what I love – build, paint and sew. The real turning point came when we renovated our kitchen in the summer of 2010. One project led to another and I started blogging about all my projects one by one which has ultimately led to a small business.
My goal with each project is to work smart, efficient and economical. I love a good challenge whether it be designing a build to fit the space (entry locker unit), solving a logistical solution (portable lego tray), constructing a craft using unconventional supplies (plastic tablecloth rosette garland) or just a simple makeover with paint (front door makeover). And I firmly believe you can do it too which is why write a majority of my posts as tutorials in an effort to share my experience with readers.
