Hey everybody, thanks for visiting my DIY crafts blog.

I work in marketing by day, and I blog at night and on the weekends. I have a crazy house full of three adorable dogs and my beautiful toddler (who loves to get into everything!). I like pretty much anything the color purple, owl stuff, Hello Kitty, and boy bands.

I’ve always loved cooking and crafting. Starting at a very young age, my mom would help me make arts and crafts at home and in Girl Scouts. My interest continued through to high school, when I used to make intricate collages for my binders and book covers. I went to an arts and communications college, where my love of crafting continued to grow. After I graduated, I wanted to share my love of all things crafty and DIY, so I created this website.

My grandmother was an excellent cook and baker. Growing up, I spent a lot of time with her, and she taught me everything I know about cooking and baking today! I wanted to include my love of the culinary arts on my website, which is why you will see many recipes alongside my DIY and crafts projects.

What is this website all about?

Purple Patch DIY focuses on DIY projects, crafts, and recipes.

Types of DIY projects you might see include: refurbishing old furniture, building new furniture, repurposing common household items, and more!

Types of crafts you might see include: holiday craft projects, decoupage, painting ideas, sewing, home decor projects, scrapbooking, etc.

Types of recipes you might see include: new recipes I have created, old family recipes, me trying out recipes from Pinterest, oh and bacon… lots and lots of bacon.

What does Purple Patch DIY mean?

A purple patch is a period of excellent performance, where nearly everything seems to go right and work properly. I don’t claim to be perfect, but when I’m crafting I definitely feel like I’m in my “purple patch.” Plus, as I mentioned above, I really like the color purple!

Who is Sarah SaturDIY?

Sarah SaturDIY was my previous blog. I loved it so much! But it was kind of a mouthful for people to pronounce. So I decided to change over to something a little “catchier,” hence Purple Patch DIY. Because I loved my old site so much, you might still find content from it on the new site, watermarks on photos, etc. Don’t worry, you’re still on, it’s just a throwback to my early blogging days.

    Question about July 4th dessert – do you need to put lemon juice on bananas to keep them from turning brown.???
    Looks great and easy. Thanks

      Hi, Pat! I generally don’t have much time between when I cut the bananas and when the bananas get eaten! But you CAN lightly spray your bananas with lemon juice to prevent browning.

    As you can see I love Purple,too. When people buy me presents now,they usually look for anything Purple and it is sure to be a hit with me. Even little things like baking implements,placemats,plastic storage containers,etc. I even buy my facial tissues in purple boxes. However,I do draw the line at painting my house purple or buying a purple car.

    I do know someone who has a purple house, and even though I am not a purple lover (sorry!), I have to say it is just so pretty!
