Creating Home - Hire A Designer

Hire A Designer

Hire A Designer It’s funny how things happen in a round-about way!  When I started Creating Home a few years ago, I didn’t have a business plan or any idea what I was doing from a business perspective.  Since then, it’s grown organically on it’s own and has become what it is today.  Hire a Homemaker was a natural extension of Creating Home because it was a website devoted to products and services related to homemaking.
