Hey Ya’ll! I am Jodi Mann and I am so glad you stopped by…Who in the world am I?
Well,…I am probably a lot like you. I am a wife and a mom and most importantly a child of God. I have been married to my sweetheart, Mr. Mann, for 25 years (He is my favorite!!). We have 4 amazing kiddos that I absolutely adore. They are a joy and I love being with them and we are always busy chasing them around and watching them do their things. We were blessed with two of each…two girls: Rian 17 & Abbee 15 and two boys: Jackson 10 and Benjamin 9. I love Jesus and am so thankful daily for His Love, Mercy and Grace. I am a little wild, I love to laugh, I love flamingos (I don’t know why), I love cookie dough and Mr. Mann’s taco spread. I love Hobby Lobby or any home decor/craft store for that matter, scrapbooking, ALL craft supplies and office supplies, jigsaw puzzles and binge watching Netflix. I do love to organize but I am terrible at maintaining. I love decorating and making pretty things, I still love farmhouse style, I love to be thrifty and I love everything DIY. And…I really want a painting of a flying pig with sunglasses and a halo of flowers…even the very thought of it makes me smile.
We live in rural Northwest Oklahoma and love raising our family in this area. For the past 16+ years we have served in full time ministry on staff in area local churches. A few years ago we purchased our local flower shop, Leedey Floral and Gifts. I have loved learning the industry, floral arranging and all the things. Before owning the flower shop, I had a little creative side gig making signs, crosses, block sets, wreaths, etc. and also held DIY project workshops…so taking on the flower shop was a natural next step and gave me a storefront for my creative products. So now I get to do all of those things!! I just love making crafting/DIY tutorial videos…CREATING….TEACHING…INSPIRING others to create too is what I love to do!
On this website and blog…We’ll try all kinds of DIY crafts and home decor projects — signs, wood projects, painting, up-cycles and furniture redos, wreaths, crosses, silk and fresh flower arranging — and anything else we can think up. We want you to jump in and try with us. Whether you are a seasoned creative or a beginner, we want to inspire you to just get after it…to use your God given creativity to bless your family or someone else. Let me come alongside you in your creative journey and help your get started or encourage you where you are at. I would love to be your DIY WingMann. (Or maybe, you will be mine!!) Ultimately, we want this to be a site for you to be encouraged. Encouraged on your creative journey but also in your faith as well. We are real people that have experienced many victories and successes but also many failures, challenges and struggles. As we share our lives with you, we hope that you will be encouraged to hold fast to the truth that God is Faithful. He is faithful in ALL seasons and ALL situations. He is in control and you don’t have to understand it. You just have to trust in His faithfulness and continue to move forward on the path He has set before you. Join me on this journey as we create and share together…we are going to have a great time!
