Hi im chas

Hi, I’m Chas and I’m so excited to meet you!

What you’ll find on this DIY website:

My DIY website is about what I repurpose, upcycle, craft, organize, clean, hack, cook, and oh so much more!

  • It’s about doing things we love – teaching, learning, sharing, crafting, organizing, inspiring, helping, collaborating, supporting, and building a community… a family!
  • Do you want seasonal decor? Maybe you want to repurpose & upcycle? On a budget or like thrifting and garage sales? This is the place for you!
  • I’m a breast cancer survivor and have gone through 2 hip surgeries. I share all my tips, tricks, and things I’ve learned on my journey with you. Chemical-free cleaning, tips on reducing stress, being mindful, and easy recipes are just a few things you’ll see.
  • How do you learn best? Written instructions, pictures, videos? I have taught for over 30 years and I have several learning styles here for you! If you have questions, comments, or ideas – my door is open, and I’d love to hear from you.

I love creating tutorial projects and videos for you!

Chas' Family

About Chas

A little bit about me… I grew up in Minnesota and my family moved to Colorado when I was 14.  I went to Colorado State University (Go Rams!) where I had a band and dance scholarship, graduated with a Bachelor of the Arts, an emphasis in Dance, and met my husband. I retired from being a dance Teacher, & a former dance artistic, program, and company director of Mountain Kids (24 years)!

I have 2 amazing kids, I’m a little kooky, a kid at heart, and I’m the typo queen (sorry about that part in advance).   I love spending time with family and friends, watching movies, spending time outside, and getting back to a simple life.
