Hi there! I’m so excited to welcome you to Making Home Base. Before I dive in and go show you all the things I’ve been working on, I want to give a proper introduction. I’m Chelsea, a wife and stay at home mama. I’ve been married to my navy husband for six great years and we have an adorable four month old little girl. I have a serious passion for all things crafty. You can typically find me sewing a quilt, finding a way to make something old new again, or helping my husband paint furniture.

As a military family, we have moved A LOT in the last few years. We absolutely love this life and have lived in some wonderful places. Hawaii and Washington, DC are a couple of the places we’ve called home in the last few years. We are finally starting to settle into our new home and expect to be here a while so I’m excited to get going on my long list of diy and craft projects.

I want this blog to be an inspiration for those like me, who are living in a home that might have decorative limitations. We live  in military base housing, and while they have come a long way, it’s still stark white walls, ugly tile, and fluorescent lighting. Even if you can’t relate to the  ugly tile (which I hope you can’t – it’s bad!),  hopefully you will still be inspired. I look forward to connecting with others who share my passion for being a military spouse, being a mom, creating, and crafting, and anything in between.

Thanks for being here. I’m excited to get started. I can’t wait to share with you peaks and valleys in my mission to making this base house our home base.

Chelsea is the owner and blogger of Making Home Base. Making Home Base is a lifestyle blog that focuses on DIY and home decor projects, crafts, delicious desserts, and military life. After moving 5 times in 6 years, she's finally settling in her new (to her) military base house. She looks at the obstacle of residing in a rental home as a challenge and loves finding budget friendly ways to make her house feel like home. Chelsea lives in Southern California with her husband and daughter.
