I’m a wife to my best friend and mom to two beautiful children who bring so much happiness to my life. I restarted zevy joy during a new season as a stay at home mama. I wanted to creatively share my experiences living on a budget, dressing for less and decorating with what we have. It may be messy, it can be exciting and it will be genuine. I love to design and create through pictures, cooking, style and decor – this blog gives me the opportunity to do just that! I hope you are inspired along with me!

The name zevy joy was a portmanteau of my children’s names z (from Zealand) and evy (from Everly).  The decision to add the word joy to zevy was an easy one because my family truly does fills my life with abundant joy.  I love reading through blogs daily and only hope that other readers may benefit from my stories and ideas.

    Can you tell me where you got your coffee table? Thank you very much!

      Hi Stacy- thank you for stopping by! We purchased this table about ten years ago from Mor Furniture for less. It is on it’s second coat of paint this year and I shared the tutorial here on the blog – hope that helps!
