Hello, my name is Alli, and welcome to my About page. I’m happy you’ve taken the time to come visit and get a little insight into my funny, lovely, crazy HAPPY life!
More About the Happy Maker Behind Made with Happy
I’m the HAPPY maker behind Made with HAPPY, a creative lifestyle blog in the pursuit of all things HAPPY. The left-side of my brain is a skilled computer programmer, analyst, and statistician while the right-side loves to be covered in glitter, paint, pizza sauce and garden soil. I recently made the move from corporate marketing analyst to full time blogger. My days are now spent creating new fun craft projects for both kids and adults, food and drink recipes, parties and entertaining, DIY(Do-it Yourself) home projects, and travel and adventures. I’m a mom of two and wife to one. I have a spunky, sassy, daughter who was born at the very end of 2008 as well as her sweet and charming little brother who we welcomed in the Fall of 2011. My husband is incredibly hard working funny man that doesn’t blink when he walks in the door and there are eight thousand projects happening in the front room and a new paint color on the walls.

While the move from sitting behind a 9-5 desk to now running around the park blowing bubbles and adding glitter and paint to everything, has been quite the change, this blog has been changing too. We recently changed names from Diapers-n-Heels to Made with HAPPY. If you see reference to Diapers-n-Heels or DNH please don’t be confused, we just haven’t be able to change it all yet. If you’re wondering why the change, full explanation here.

Thanks again for stopping by to learn all about me! I would love to learn about you!

Hello, I really like the DIY Treehouse and was wondering if you could answer a few questions before I dive in. I have a nine-year-old who has been a trooper during the quarantine, but is growing bored and in need of distraction. Her mom is a nurse and has been working in NYC for the past month, with potentially 2 more to go (we live in Arkansas). So, a project like this would be a great distraction. How has the tree house held up over time? Is there anything you might do differently if you were starting from scratch? Thanks for you time and for sharing the plans to the tree house. Kind regards, Scott.

Hello. The tree house has held up great over the last 5 years. We had one stair where we didn’t screw directly in the middle and so we needed to fix and rescrew it in. Otherwise, we are really happy with how well its held together.
