It’s easy to fall in love with your home again when you have
DIY with Dafne
❗Read this if you want to end the frustration and indecision that often comes with home organization and decorating. Finally get the support you need to Declutter, Destress, Redesign, and Renew Your Home.
Remember that feeling you had when you first moved into your house? It was a lot like a new romance. You were starry-eyed, excited, and you saw all the possibilities for transforming the rooms and spaces into a home that would nurture you and your family. Like any relationship, your connection to your home needs attention or you can easily fall out of love after a few years. Sometimes, it’s the worn-down furniture and the lack of a budget for a new set. Other times, it’s the bland, boring walls that are mocking you. So, you went down the rabbit holes on YouTube and Pinterest and tried a few things here and there. Sometimes the instructions were easy to follow, and other times you ended up with more paint on your clothes than on the cute, cheap bookcase you found on Marketplace.
Still, it’s been months or even years since you’ve felt that fresh new love for your home, and now the spaces and rooms frustrate you. You know you have to do something soon or your frustration will turn into resentment. Before too long, you’ll be browsing Zillow and dreaming about all the pretty houses you can’t actually afford.
It would be easy to make those houses beautiful, you tell yourself. They wouldn’t give me such a hard time.
Well, I have a secret, sis. It can be EASY to make your house beautiful and you can fall in LOVE with your home again!

Hey there! I’m Dafne!
I know how overwhelming it can be to try to do all the right things for your family. Between providing healthy meals, keeping healthy finances, maintaining a healthy marriage, homeschooling the kids, building a healthy home, and running a health-focused business, I’m pulled in a lot of directions every single day.
I was blindsided by multiple chronic illnesses in myself and in my kids when I was only in my twenties, so I had to learn pretty early on how to manage a home well, while keeping my stress levels low, so I could give all of us the best chance at staying happy and healthy. For two decades I’ve dedicated myself to helping other families navigate life and all its uncertainties with joy, whether they need help with budgeting, decluttering, planning, inspiration, insurance and medical support, or simply loving the space they call home again.
I believe that when you truly love your home, you have a stronger base for you and your family to conquer any challenge or adversity that comes your way. We all need that place where we can relax, be ourselves, and feel whole, and our homes are meant to give us all of those things.
Do you know what isn’t a secret?
A happy, organized home is fundamental to a happier you.
We all know that a clean, organized home is a happy home, but have you ever really tried to unravel why? With everything going on in our lives, it’s understandable that we put these thoughts on the backburner. Besides, when you’re juggling kids, homeschooling, a job, basic housework, and a relationship, organizing and decorating seem like luxuries your schedule and wallet can’t afford. So why bother? …because a happy home is your key to a happier, healthier family.
Without the cleanliness and organization that brings calm, it’s difficult to achieve that happy home. It can interfere with our focus and commitments. Attachments to things that clutter our space can reveal deep inner wounds that still need healing. The fear of spending money or making changes to create a beautiful and peaceful home can reveal a mindset of lack that needs attention in order to heal.
A home in chaos can be a sign of inner chaos,and there’s hope for healing both!
A home in chaos has negative emotional, spiritual, and physical effects on those living within its walls. The physical effects of a chaotic home include stress and stress is a toxic killer! Stress is linked to the six leading causes of death. When you work on creating a happy home, you actively lower your stress levels, and that results in a healthier brain, heart and lungs. Lowering stress even helps you reduce your risk of developing long-term, chronic conditions. It’s time to clear the chaos and clutter and start creating a home environment that makes your life easier, lighter, and happier.
A happy home isn’t a luxury; it’s a necessity.
Have you ever visited a beautiful home and immediately felt peaceful and happy when you walked inside? It isn’t the fancy furniture or beautiful light fixtures that create those feelings. It’s the spirit of calm and quiet that invades the space with beauty and tranquility because it was invited by the people who live there. Through a little time and attention–and a whole lotta love–they designed and created an environment that brings them peace, tranquility, and happiness.
A happy home frees us to be our truest selves. It is our place of restoration and renewal, guarding us against the stresses and troubles of the outside world. Home is where we laugh, we rest, we raise families, and we nourish ourselves. This is where we gather with those we love for meals, celebrations, and memories.
Home is where we create a sense of belonging for ourselves and those we love.
Close your eyes for a moment and imagine your home as a place that is peaceful, beautiful, clean, and organized. Visualize how your home would look so that it gives you a sense of calm. Sense how that would feel for you.
In that peaceful home you just visualized, parents scream less. Children cry less. Spouses fight less. Real conversations begin to happen around the dinner table. Each day that you do a little something to improve your home lessens the stress your family feels and increases those positive feelings.
And then, something wonderful begins to blossom… Connection.
Connection happens between spouses, between parents and children, between siblings. We were all created for connection, and our homes are a major factor in helping us to connect with the ones we love. When our homes are peaceful, organized, and beautiful, they improve our ability to connect. Chaos gets in the way of real connection, communication, and love.
A happy, beautiful, safe home makes a real, tangible difference in our lives and in the lives and futures of our children.
We were created to give, and we are meant to give from a place of overflow. We can’t pour from tanks that only have fumes in them, so we must refill ourselves. The beauty we create in our homes with our own two hands and a little of our hard-earned income should be a major source of our renewal so we can continue to give and create.
Are you ready to start creating a safe, happy, beautiful home that restores your spirit and improves your connections with your family?
