Random Ridiculousness

My fantastic boyfriend bought me an early Mother’s Day gift. I got to pick out $100 worth of flowers to make my front yard beautiful. The thing is though, on my way home I found a yard sale on the side of the road. I just had to buy a recliner that was in awesome condition that only cost $5. For the record, I drive a tiny hatchback….but we figured it out.

Full car

You know what they say…

Where there’s a will, there’s a way.


About Kristen Van Loon

My name is Kristen Van Loon and this is the chronicle of my search for *Oomf!* Not only have I deemed myself qualified to revamp, repair, refurnish and refine my house, but I also jump into any DIY project that my friends, co-workers, family and practical strangers stumble upon. I would love to tell you that this is my full-time job and my complete life mission, but I make my bread and butter elsewhere and raise a daughter (Olivia). I have some experience but no time, no formal training and no money. My only saving grace is that I love figuring things out, I’m great at improvising and I’m always inspired. For the record, some things that I do (play with electricity, for one) may seem risky, and some of them are. I will always tell you what I’ve done, but I won’t ever suggest things for you that aren’t safe. Even though I push the envelope, I am only marginally incompetent. If sources (father, my brain, Google) tell me not to do something then I usually won’t. But if I do try and it blows up in my face (figuratively or literally) you will hear all about it, and you hopefully won’t attempt it. At the end of the day, I hope to inspire you. Space-Lift isn’t just a blog, it’s a verb. It’s an action that brightens your surroundings by assaulting everything that needs improvement. Nothing is off limits, and all possibilities will be considered.

  1. Kudos on the gift! Very original. Being that I spent the better part of last week buying and planting bulbs, I know it’s a big darn deal 🙂

    • He knows me well. I can’t handle a gift that I just enjoy, I need a gift that gives me a project. Bulbs and perennials are so worth it, you’ll forget about the work next year, but you’ll still have the pretty flowers.
