Hi! I’m Chelsea and I’m so glad you’re here!
A little about me.
I am a wife and stay at home mama, both of which happen to be the best jobs I’ve ever had. I’ve been married to my handsome husband for over six years and we have the most adorable one year old little girl (who occasionally makes an appearance on the blog). I have a serious passion for creating, especially for creating things for less. You can typically find me chasing around my babe (with a camera), watching the Washington Nationals with my husband (MLB anyone?), and getting crafty whether it be sewing up a quilt, crafting for holidays, or upcycling thrifted goodies.
Other than creating, you may have noticed that I have a passion for my military life as well. We are a military family that has moved A LOT in the last few years. We love this lifestyle and have had the opportunity to live in some amazing places, such as Hawaii and Washington, DC. You’ll see that much of my decorating style is tailored to living in military housing (stark white walls and awkward floor plans).
A little about this blog.
I began this blog in September of 2012 after spending a lot of time reading other inspirational blogs and noticed that not many bloggers were in my situation. Constantly on the move, living in rentals, and unable make any permanent customizations to my home. Making Home Base was born out of desire to be an inspiration for those like me, who are living in a home that might have decorative limitations. You might have small spaces or ugly tile, or fluorescent lighting, but you can still make your home yours and love it.
I am making my military base house a home base for my family, one project at a time.
I hope you’ll subscribe so you can follow along on my mission to make this base house our home base.
Thanks so much for being here!
