Erin Trafford-Basquill

Erin Trafford is a storyteller, DIY enthusiast, wife and Mom. Her career as a nationally award winning broadcast journalist brought her from Toronto to Halifax in the summer of 2008. It was through her work in the community as a radio and television reporter that she learned to love Atlantic Canada and all it has to offer. Meantime, she secretly began blogging about DIYs and decor at DIY Passion in 2012. Now, she is proud to call herself both a Maritimer and a blogger- it’s definitely not a secret anymore!

Over the years, DIY Passion has built a loyal following, reaching tens of thousands of readers each month. Erin has worked with brands such as The Home Depot, Minwax, Wayfair, Munchkin, Atlantic Central Credit Unions and more. Her content has grown to include lifestyle and parenting content too. While she is challenged every day to create engaging and useful posts, Erin always comes back to her philosophy of Do-it-yourself, spark joy and collect happiness.
