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.
