Hola! Thank you so much for being here. I’m Elba Valverde, content creator, blogger, designer and mom of a beautiful boy named Jax. I’m really passionate about creativity, in all ways possible! I enjoy making messy art with my toddler using leaves from our patio and acrylic paint, I also love afternoons making my own homemade bath salts and body scrubs, baking vegan muffins and illustrating flowers and quotes with watercolors while listening to personal development podcasts. I believe in kindness, helping others and living a healthy happy life.
I started a blog named Live Colorful a few years ago where I share DIY projects, crafts, home decor tips and all the things that inspire a creative lifestyle.
I recently launched a new Instagram account, @OilsDIY, where I share DIY recipes using natural ingredients and essential oils.
I’m originally from Mexico. I graduated from the Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara 2008, with a BA in Interior Design and Landscaping. After graduating, I started a small company dedicated to decorating themed parties in Tabasco, México. During my adventure as an event decorator, I worked with many different clients and industries including quinceaños, weddings, and corporate events.
After moving to the United States I found an amazing community around the web, I felt fascinated about blogging, content marketing, and social media. That had led me to great collaborations such as designing my first fabric collection with Digital Fabrics and collaborating with Family Fun and Parents Latina Magazine. More of my work had been featured in numerous online magazines, blogs, and printed magazines. Check out more here.
