1) What am I working on?
I have a lot of projects in my mind that I want to start and a lot that I am currently working on! It seems there is just never enough hours in the day, especially when you are a mom to two! I am excited to wrap up the Master Bathroom project, which I have been working on for over a year! Below you will see a sampling of posts I have done during this bathroom remodel. Currently, I am looking into painting the vanity in there and I am researching options.
I enjoy making wreaths and I just finished up a fall colored wreath that I will be sharing next week. Honestly, I could almost burst with all of the fall craft ideas I have running through my head right now.
I’m planning on sharing a quick DIY tutorial on how to make your very own ‘Wifey’ shirt. Apparently, they are all the rage right now. 😉
I also have a once a month freezer recipe series, which has almost reached its one year mark! I am planning on doing a different theme for the next year of recipes, which I will be announcing soon.
I have a background in Marketing and Design and as a result I have a lot of knowledge with Adobe products and typography, so you’ll see that I love to use a lot of photos and typography in my header photos.
I believe that everyone should follow their dreams in their life. When I wrote down all of my dreams and started being active in fulfilling them (no matter how silly they were), it was similar to pushing the green go button on my life. If you are passionate about something, don’t let anyone else tell you different. God gave you this life, use it and be an inspiration to others. I started this blog back in 2008, when my daughter was born and it has grown with me over the years. I feel this blog is so much more then just DIY, crafts and recipes with a little fashion thrown in… it is a place where I share projects that I have spent countless hours on, a place that I take pride in. I hope to share with others that blogging can be such a great opportunity in sharing ideas, creativity, support and friendship.
I always proof read my work, I hate typos or errors. And, I always try to come up with an attractive 650×650 photo to use at the top of most of my craft/DIY posts to add visual interest… and, that size works perfectly for when I want to post it on Instagram.
For a fashion post, I usually think up the outfit a week in advance and wear it on the most convenient day. There are days where I will dress up in the outfit and then after my husband photographs me, I take the outfit right off! I do edit all of my fashion photos in Photoshop before placing them on the blog.
