- Headline:Publisher: Dogs Don't Eat Pizza - Rescue, Recycle, Redo, Redecorate
- Key DifferentiatorHi there! My name is Karen Cooper, and I’m a DIY’er, upcycler, wanna-be-designer, gardener, cook, mother, wife, and dog rescuer. I have four children – two with two legs and two with four legs. I also teach writing, research, and advocacy to first-year law students. I like to say that I’m a “recovering lawyer.” For more about my journey from being a lawyer to being a creative DIYer/blogger, see this post and this post. Dogs Don’t Eat Pizza? How did you come up with that name for a DIY blog? (C’mon, you were gonna ask, right? Right?) With two relatively little kids and a husband whose favorite food is pepperoni pizza, we eat pizza a lot in this house. Our yellow lab, Bear (read her story in this post), always thinks she should get some (the golden retriever (read his story in this post) never was fed people-food in his former life before we adopted him, so he’s clueless about people-food. He’s also not the brightest bulb on the porch.). So, about once a week, I have to say, “No, Bear. Dogs don’t eat pizza.” It’s become such an integral part of my life that I thought it’d be a good title for a blog about what’s going on in my life. That, and it’s shorter than “Bear, get out of the dishwasher.” What is this blog about? I started this blog with the idea that it would just be my musings about my life. What it has happily turned into is a blog about DIY projects, home decor, interior design, and other projects I’m working on to improve our home and garden. I throw in a few personal, non-DIY posts for good measure every now and then, too. My passions are: 1. Home design and decor – CLICK HERE for design and decor projects. 2. Upcycling and recycling – CLICK HERE for my rescue, recycle, and repurposing projects. 3. DIY – empowering people to do their own home projects – CLICK HERE for my DIY projects. 4. Space planning and organization – CLICK HERE for space-planning and organization posts. 5. COLOR! Do not be afraid of using color in your home! – CLICK HERE for paint and color posts. Thank you for joining me here. I hope you enjoy reading the blog and get some inspiration for your home as well. If I can do the projects, you can do them, too. I’d love to see your projects – please share them with me on Facebook or Instagram.
