Hi there, and welcome to Practically Functional, a blog about real projects for real people! My name is Jessi, and Practically Functional is where I share projects for everyday life that anyone can do, regardless of skill or experience!
We bought our first house in March of 2014, and I’m busy turning it into a home. Whether you’re looking for fun crafts, DIY projects both big and small, gardening advice, cleaning tips, or quick and easy recipes, you’ll find them here! I put up step by step tutorials for every project I’ve done, so if you want useful, acheivable projects, you’ve come to the right place!
My passion is DIY and crafts, so I’m loving having a whole empty house to use as a canvas! Some of my favorite DIY projects are the kitchen shelf I made from half of a pallet, and the bath shelf I made from the other half! And as far as crafting goes, I pretty much love it all! You can find every tutorial I’ve ever posted here, or if you are looking for something more specific, I have vinyl tutorials, paper craft tutorials, Silhouette Cameo tutorials, seasonal and holiday craft tutorials, and tons more!
I love to garden, and now that we have a yard, I have tons of gardening plans! I started by building a DIY compost bin to make sure we have nutrient-rich soil to keep our plants happy and healthy. And it’s also great to recycle our food waste instead of throwing it away!
And when I’m not working in, decorating, organizing, or crafting in our house, I’m living in it! The point of Practically Functional is to share real projects that you can actually do to help you love your home and make it the perfect place for you, your family, your pets, your hobbies, your job, and everything else you love!
We have two kitties (Finnegan, the tabby, and Puck, the black one) who are a huge part of our lives, so if you have pets, you can find a ton of cat-related projects here at Practically Functional too! We adopted them when they were 1 month old, and they’re now clearly the kings of this castle! I even installed some carpet-covered climbing shelves onto a wall in our sun room to give them a place to run and play!
