From high-end design to hard-core how-to, with a lot of lifestyle, makeover and home improvement in between… here is a captain’s platter of Amy Devers design/DIY related shows…
If you’ve seen me on Home Made Simple, you know how emotional I can get. The families and friends that come on the show make an impact on me and I’ve grown quite fond of the amazing cast I’ve worked with over the last several years.
Just yesterday, I found out that Home Made Simple was nominated for a daytime Emmy award for outstanding lifestyle program. How awesome is that? I got pretty emotional just thinking about the last few years on the show and what it means to me.
The people I work with, and those I’ve met in the making of the show, have helped to make this all possible. I am ever so grateful and loved filming this season so do me a favor, if you would. Please tune into the show when it airs on Saturday mornings (9am on OWN) and follow me on Twitter. I’ll be using the #HomeMadeSimple hashtag as I tweet during the episodes and join in the conversation.
The Daytime Emmy awards ceremony is not until June, so we’ll find out then if we’ve won.
A new project that I’m really excited about, F.A.D. Weekly, has recently launched in beta mode. Here is Edition #3. Please check out the video and then subscribe, like, tweet, and forward the link, that would be so cool of you. Thanks!

In 2007 Amy Devers hosted the first season of DIY’s groundbreaking interactive hit series, Blog Cabin. Viewers voted on features for a log cabin and she went out to the Smokey Mountains and built it according to their specs, along with twin contractors, Simon and Chris Hodshon, and some guest experts from DIY network. Devers blogged during the whole process and then the finished log cabin was given away in a sweepstakes.
Blog Cabin is the groundbreaking multimedia experience based on a very simple idea: You Design It, We Build It, You Could Win It! This truly interactive series asks Internet users to vote on the design features for a real vacation getaway.
