Here is all about Rachel and her blog in her own words.

I am a full time architect, wife, and mommy
to three girls: a five year old and twin toddlers. Once I survived the first few
months of mothering the twins with a preschooler, too, I realized that I needed
something to be my little bit of sanity–somewhere to encourage me to create.
Between work and keeping up with family, “me” time tends to be in short supply
around here…anyone climb that mountain of laundry yet this week? Basically, I
needed “build” a blog that was a creative outlet…and that’s when I created
Architecture of a Mom!

On her blog you can find DIY and Craft projects. cooking and alot about family.

Rachel has been in the Top 10 on The CSI Project many times and it is hard not to notice how great her blog is.

Since it is Recycle/Upcycle Week, I love this project she did using Wood Deck Samples. She made her favorite quote from them.

Go by her blog to see how she did it.

Also, in the Upcycle mode, she made an Accessory Holder from a Picture Frame.

From this…..
