I’m Denise!

I’m so glad you’ve joined me here at Hootshack.  Hootshack is a place where I share the things I love in life (and maybe occasionally things I don’t)!  I’m a wife and a mother of two grown children, living and loving life on the Central Coast of California.  I love healthy eating, decorating my home and garden, DIY projects, good wine (and there’s plenty where I live!), and sunny days.

I’ve experienced a few different careers in life but one of my favorites was owning my own furniture and home decor store.  It’s been over 10 years since that journey ended and at this point in my life, I’m not sure that I would ever want to commit to another retail store (never say never).  This little online space is a way for me to express myself creatively and continue to share my love of home decor, special gifts and some of my favorite DIY decor projects.

Oh yes, I almost forgot…

I’m Denise, married to my wonderful husband, Jake, and mother of two grown children.  My family is my favorite thing ever and I’m truly blessed in that department.  They are my biggest cheerleaders and encourage me to pursue this part of my life daily.  There are two things I hope to accomplish from this journey, to teach you something valuable, and to learn something valuable along the way.  My eyes, ears, and heart are wide open.  I have so much more to learn and experience in life.  I’m happy I get to do it with you!

Thank you so much for stopping by.

I named my blog Hootshack because of my love for my little she shed, where this entire journey began, and the sweet owls that live nearby. I began crafting and decorating the interior of the shed which led me to start this blog. It has since evolved into home decor and garden projects. I enjoy this little space of the internet and I hope you enjoy it as well!
