All About Me and My Blog


Hi there!  I'm Jamie, the founder and creative spirit behind my blog, anderson + grant.

Although I graduated from college with a degree in elementary education, I've felt drawn to occupations dealing with the home like interior design and professional organizing.  Martha Stewart has been my idol from my teenage years (and still today), and my goal has been to combine all of my passions for decorating, baking, and creating into a single business as she had done.

Being from a tiny town in north central PA, it never seemed like it could be possible.  But blogging  has given me a platform to do all the things that I love and to share them with you along the way.  I feel as though my true calling has come to life and blossoms more every day.

When I'm not typing at my computer or snapping pictures with my Nikon, I enjoy taking walks in my peaceful neighborhood and being inspired by the nature around me.  And on Sunday afternoons, you'll most likely find me curled up on the couch with a good book and warm cup of tea relaxing from the week.


Here on my blog, you'll find inspiring decorating ideas and step-by-step tutorials, creative DIY projects and ways to transform what you already have into something you love, delicious and easy-to-follow recipes, plus countess ways to make homemaking fun and doable regardless of the skills you have....or believe you don't have!

We all have a place to call home, no matter what of our age, location, or income and it's up to each of us to uncover how to make it a place we love and find joy returning to at the end of the day.  You can use my blog as a bit of a friendly guide to finding confidence and pleasure in doing that.

Right now, I'm renovating a 1900s house that belonged to my grandparent's.  It is most definitely a fixer upper, but has charm hidden beneath all of the dated paneling, old carpet, and ceiling tiles.  What is most exciting, is that I have the ability to completely transform this old house into a customized home that I love.  This house is teaching me how to make a house a home from the ground up.  You can start following along with the journey by taking a look at my before tour.
