Welcome adventurer, designer, achiever – The Artful Attempt was created for you. Since 2014, this blog has aimed to encourage people to embrace their basic need to make things, to do, and to go, no matter what kind of budget they have. I use my experiences to guide yours and to build a community to grow with. Originally from Grand Rapids, Michigan, I’m now exploring big city life in Chicago with my husband. Follow along, reach out, and embrace your artful side.

Let’s talk on Twitter, swap ideas on Pinterest, and inspire each other on Instagram.

For easy updates, follow me on Bloglovin or like my Facebook page!

Collaborate with me! artfulattempt@gmail.com
