It all started in the kitchen. I’m not sure which came first, but both my passion for crafts and food began in the same place. To me, crafting and cooking are alike in many ways – both allow me to use my creativity and make others happy. I often have paper and glue spread across my dining table and bowls of ingredients ready to be mixed together on my kitchen island.

When I’m not spending my time antiquing or stirring pasta on the stove, my heart is usually full spending time with my husband and our one-year-old daughter. We enjoy walks to the park, traveling and frolicking in the city. I love them more than words can say and I can’t thank them enough for always loving and supporting me.

It’s messy here at Marina Makes, but only the good kind of messy. This is my space. It’s where my happy DIY and foodie worlds collide. I’m so happy you’re here and that I get to share this with you. Please, grab a spoon, some scissors and join me on this homemade and handmade journey.
