Sara Syrett

I am a mom of four kids, one German Shepherd named Bruin, and one husband. I have a huge passion for interior design, styling, baking, fashion, DIY projects and re-purposing. You can find me most days working on my home. Whether I am painting, building, or doing a DIY project, I can’t get enough. I decided to start this blog at the request of my husband who is my partner for most of my projects. He definitely doesn’t share the same passion I do, but he loves me enough to put up with it. Starting this blog was one of the best decisions I have made. While it is completely out of my comfort zone, I have learned so much and have made some incredible friendships. I hope you can find something here that speaks to you. So stick around, follow along, and enjoy my crazy life living at Twelve On Main.
