About Us

About the Owner

Raise your hand if you like talking about yourself!  Yeah, me neither. But if you don’t know who I am then you won’t know that this amazing studio is locally birthed and raised (yes, there were labor pains!). It’s not a franchise where everything is cookie-cutter (don’t get me wrong, I love a great franchise…Hello, Starbucks!) This is the good old-fashioned  American dream, baby. 

My husband, Matthew and I have raised our 3 children here.  I live, shop (so much shopping), eat, and worship right here, next to all of you.  So yeah, you could say I’m invested in this business because this is my town and I love all the options, growth, and community Grand Rapids has to offer and I’m proud to be a part of its thriving small business life.  I look forward to meeting you!


Why a DIY Workshop?

Sometimes people have thoughts, ideas, passions.  When some of these ideas get together and love one another very much…..it gives birth into a kick-@$$ business idea (what were you thinking?).   I have a passion for all things DIY and hospitality (bringing people together to have fun, make them feel welcomed, special and cared for). My hope is that you’ll love the time and experience you had here in my studio and you’ll equally love the product you made.

So quick math lesson…. fun + hospitality + DIY= Spruced

Oh yeah, I love trying new things, so check back often for new DIY product workshops. There will always be something new to experience here!
