About #WeekendDIYGirl

#WeekendDIYGirl is a home and lifestyle blog created by Y. M. Nelson, an avid DIY and home improvement show watcher. I craft, create, and attempt to fix stuff around my house, so I started #WeekendDIYGirl as a way to chronicle the good, the bad, and the creative that happens as I attempt to do DIY home projects, reuse and upcycle home items, and design crafts. The blog has now become a resource for other DIYers, and I’ve expanded to Etsy, so readers can purchase some of my craft projects.

About Y. M. Nelson

I’m based in Charlotte, NC, and I write about love, women’s journeys, and amateur DIY. After I spent most of my writing “career” ghostwriting for companies and realized there were no passionate verbs in company instruction manuals, I decided to produce and share my own work with the public.

I wrote the Owen & Makayla romance story series, and now I’m working on several novels: a romantic comedy series based on my #MyTinderSeries blog serial, and  a women’s fiction novel series. I created and host the increasingly popular Nerdy Romantics Podcast which combines my love for nerd pop culture, and books with romance pop culture and books. To support these DIY and creative “habits” I’m an English professor and I have a day job.
