Diane is the author of Instant Decorating, a book that was based on creative tips and tricks that she learned when she worked as retail display designer. She uses those skills and her expertise to help homeowners decorate their homes in their own style without breaking the bank. When she is not busy creating DIY decorating and crafts projects for her blog, In My Own Style,you can find Diane out thrifting for treasure or on her Pilates Reformer. On the weekends, Diane will be on the bike trail with her husband or wishing she was sitting on a sunny beach reading a good book. She has appeared on Lifetime Television many times demonstrating projects from her book and her work has been featured in national decorating publications. The best two DIY projects Diane has ever made are her two grown daughters who she lovingly refers to as # 1 & # 2.
