Welcome fellow DIY’ers!
I am so happy you decided to stop by my little corner in cyber land! If you love to DIY, then you are in the right place! By The Stand is a haven for all things DIY!
You might ask… um, what’s the deal with “By The Stand?” Well, let me show you!
This is our stand!(Decked out for Fall, of course) Custom designed and built by my uncle using all recycled materials. “By The Stand” is where I do all my best DIYs! I use the stand as a place to create DIYs, we use it as a “stage” for our DIY videos and it sits outside of our store in Thamesford, Ontario, Canada. Hence the name — By The Stand.
Let me give you a little background history. My mother and I run a cute little boutique in Thamesford called Gracie’s Place, but it is so much more than just a boutique. We have flowers, gifts, candles, handmade items and so much more. Most of the DIYs that I make go in the store to sell. (A select few I just have to keep for myself!) We knew this place could be so much more than just a store, though. We work together as a family and everyone plays their part. I have two sisters who have caught on to the DIY bug, and love to help out! My uncle (as mentioned before, who built the stand) is a very talented contractor/carpenter, and of course, I can not forget my mother. She is the real brains behind the operation! Some days I like to pretend that I am the boss, though — just for fun. We are just getting started on this amazing journey and we hope that you will come back often to keep in the loop!
