Hey, I'm Maria!
I’m a lover of all things crafty and am obsessed with cooking and feeding those around me. I’m self-taught...and mom-taught.
My creativity was sparked at a young age by the most imaginative, organized, detail-oriented person I know…my mom. I grew up a “maker” creating EVERYTHING from scratch. My parents instilled in me to treat all of life’s moments, even the little ones, as memorable and unique, and that is what’s at the heart of From Scratch.
My hope is to inspire others to be hands-on in your life. In this digital age that we live in, it can be hard to step away from our electronics and truly connect with those around us. That’s what From Scratch is about -helping you be present in the everyday moments and giving you the inspiration and tools to create something that is unique to you.
I guarantee, if you start to cook, craft, and create your happiness will increase, and so will the happiness of those around you. When I’m not crafting, you can find me in Los Angeles with my husband and two beautiful (and crazy) boys, with my gal pals, doing yoga or drinking coffee. Fair warning — 99.9% of the time I am covered in flour, paint, or glitter! Follow along this incredibly fun journey as we create something wonderful together.
