About Yours Truly


Hi! My name is Marisa Kelley Quijano

What I like the most is to make pretty things. Looking for my place in the world since 1979. I am half Japanese and half Italian. Dedicated to having a good time when ever possible and spreading love!

The goodness in my life

I am a full-time workaholic and part-time home dictator.

I’m responsible for the continued care and existence of a very playful 10 yr young woman named Kealani. She is {scrumdiddlyumptious}

Making pretty things is a philosophy that you can apply to all the fields in your life, I’ve done it passionately since 2005. When I discovered the fascinating, sometimes fierce, but overall captivating, design world it became my passion!

While there are so many things in life that I love (the smell of laundry detergent, Coupons, laughing till I pee, making lists, sucking my fingers, my daughter’s smile, coupons, Christmas morning), this blog will focus on my greater passions: crafting, parenting, shopping, decorating and everyday life. Your comments motivate and inspire me!!!–so thank you for sharing your love, thoughts and experiences…

Thank you for bringing me into this world! I love you both
