Erin Skibinski is  a native to Chicago’s far South Suburbs (ok really far South Suburbs).

Originally, Erin enjoyed creating an online presence with Home Everyday and then created South of I-80. Now, she is a regular contributor to Chicago Parent, and was recently named as a 2014 DIY Blogger to Watch by Center City. In addition to be featured on other DIY blogs, the ChicagoNow home page and Chicago Tribune, Erin recently wrote a sketch that was part of the Mary Siewert Scruggs Works by Women Comedy Festival at Second City in Chicago and was a part of the 2013 Chicago Listen to Your Mother cast.

In between writing classes at Second City, Erin is addicted to DIY, cooking, and baking. According to her husband, she also spends a lot of time watching sitcoms, reading, and Pinning projects for him to build. She currently resides in the south suburbs with her handy husband, and three adorable children all born in a span of 33 months (yes, she realizes this is insane). You can follow Erin’s posts or hilarity on Facebook or Twitter or you can reach her at eskibs@gmail.com
