Maggie May’s Gifts started as a handmade gift company with a blog on the side. I quickly realized I was having more fun sharing my ideas and projects so I decided to focus solely on the blog.

I love coming up with useful ideas, DIY projects, and healthy recipes. My hope in sharing is to entertain, encourage and maybe solve a problem for someone someday. With ideas for repurposing old items, projects to do with kids, and home decorating tips, you are sure to find something you can use.

I decided to do this blog because I believe that we are meant to be doing the things that bring us joy. We all have passions and one of the greatest joys in life is pursuing, enjoying, and sharing them.

  1. This is not my first visit to your About page. Looking back, my first comment was in April. How time flies! It’s been wonderful connecting with you through this crazy world of blogging! Keep up all the great ideas!

  2. Hi! I remember you had a question about moving from WordPress.com to WordPress.org. I just did a post on it that you may be interested in. Unfortunately, one of the down sides about this move is that my WordPress.com followers are not getting my posts right away in their Readers. I’ve taken this up with WordPress Support, and they said it’s just a delay in getting the feeds. Can’t really do anything about it. So here’s the link to the post, and hopefully it will help you in making the decision.

  3. Hi! I’ve nominated you for a Liebster Award! It’s designed to get smaller blogs a little more attention, and I have no idea how many followers you have… but I LOVE all of your ideas, so I’m passing it on to you anyway! DIY projects, arts, crafts, creativity are some of my favorite things too, and I am always glad to see people embracing things that “bring them joy”.
    Have fun!
