We're Bright At Home



Thanks for visiting We’re Bright At Home! I am Leslie – the photographer, writer, and project curator behind this blog. I do not take all of the credit for what goes on behind the scenes.

My husband and I do some of the home renovation projects together and my youngest son tests the kid-friendly crafts and recipes for me. Our oldest son is all grown up and living on his own.

About the author


My husband Jim and I have been married since 1988. We have two gorgeous sons, Jacob and Jackson. I have always loved creating things since I was a little girl. It all started when my grandmother taught me to sew at age 5. Since then, my interests have grown quite a bit. 

What you can expect from We’re Bright At Home


When I first started this blog I wanted to write about ALL. THE. THINGS. I quickly realized that I had to only pick a few or my blog was going to be a confusing mess. I narrowed the topics down to:


  • Crafts –  You will find fun crafts and activities for the kiddos under the Kid’s Crafts tab and you will also find kid’s holiday crafts under the Holiday tab. How to make a pig fridge magnet


  • DIY – I LOVE this category because this is where I share the renovation of our farmhouse room by room under the Home Reno tab. If you need ideas of what to do to your house on a budget, definitely check out this category frequently.


Bathroom Reno Before and After


  • Also under the DIY category is the Home Decor tab. This is where I share the grown-up crafts. I also share the farmhouse home decor pieces that I make for each room as it is renovated.

  • Recipes – You can find budget-friendly meals under the Dinner tab and yummy sweet treats under the Dessert tab.

  • Crochet – You can click on the SHOP tab above to check out my Etsy shop, Nice Heart Gifts. I make crocheted items such as dolls, toys, baby items, etc. I also offer crochet patterns. I’m in the process of creating my printables too. Be on the lookout for that.
