Wow! This is an exciting day! I am part of the Blogland Tour. I have the opportunity to introduce you to my friend, Jeanette. She is one of my blogging friends. Her blog is Country Design Style.
Have I ever met Jeanette? No, but I LOVE her style. Do I want to meet Jeanette,? You betcha! We are kindred spirits, in that both have a love for rustic, thrifted and refurbished items. Not only that, but she is patient kind and FULL of talent. Her vision and insight is beyond compare. AND she has been featured on Houzz. Woot woot!
So it is my honor for YOU to meet my dear friend, Jeanette.
Some of my favorite projects that have inspired me on Jeanette’s blog are:
Her repurposed blogging desk, which once was a dresser.
Jeanette’s scrap wood mantel. YES! SHE MADE THIS MANTEL. Can you say LOVE???
How awesome is her ottoman makeover?? Yes, this was featured on Houzz.
Oh! And did I mention that Jeanette lives in a cabin? Yes, she most certainly does. And it is GORGEOUS. To see a FULL HOME tour, visit here.
As for another part of the Blogland Tour I am suppose to answer 4 questions. Are you ready?
And here we go…
Hmmm…That is a REALLY good question. I am working on a lot of projects. But are these are the most recent:
a thrifted mirror,
a decoupage project,
and a mosaic tabletop. Yes, I have been working on this for a year now. I think it’s time to finish it, wouldn’t you say?
I would say my work differs because I have done DIY, furniture makeovers, had my own style as long as I can remember. I am a lot older than most bloggers. I am 56 years old. The average blogger in my genre varies from late 30s to mid 40s.
I do what I do, because I love it. I love to create. I love to share what I create. I enjoy having somewhere to share it.
My creative juices never stop. Never, ever! Sometimes my brain won’t stop. Hubby will often ask me, “Does the creativity ever stop?” My answer is always, “NO, but sometimes I wish it would.” I don’t have nearly enough time in my lifetime to get everything done that my brain can conjure up.
Honestly I have projects in my head and on paper from 2-3 years ago that are still waiting for me to accomplish them. It’s not that I procrastinate. It’s that there is a REAL need for some to get done, and others are just for fun.
That’s me in a nutshell.
NOW for you to meet 3 of my other blogging friends. I hope you will pay each one of them a visit and tell them I sent you.
Cat is the oldest of 5 daughters in my family. My mother had awful morning sickness with all of my sisters for the entire pregnancy. So growing up, she taught me how to cook so that I could help in the kitchen while she was trying to keep her composure in the other room. After I left home and went to college I took some cooking classes as electives and just loved them. From there, it’s just been a process of teaching myself various techniques, trying new things, and doing A LOT of research in cookbooks, online, and just flat out experimentation. I love to make new creations. And I am grateful that I have a husband and two awesome little girls who have been my guinea pigs in this journey. Join me on my blog: He Married Me For My Cooking.
Julie started her blog Sum of their Stories almost exactly a year ago to share her love of all things crafty. Brought up in a “don’t buy it, make it” environment she was inspired by her Mum and Grandma’s to try all sorts of crafts. Julie describes herself as an enthusiastic amateur and just wants to encourage others to have a go too. She has a selection of tutorials for sewing, knitting, crochet, paper craft and recycling projects and even a few family recipes.
Hi, my name is Leanne from Organize and Decorate Everything I have a wonderful hubby and kids that put up with me organizing, rearranging, and decorating our home constantly.
Organizing is a passion of mine, so much so that I made a business of it. I love sharing my ideas on organizing your home and life and especially what works in my own large family (I have 8 kids and 9 grand kids). I also enjoy decorating, thrift shopping, crafting, gardening and DIY projects. Thank you for letting me share my ideas, transformations and thoughts with you.
Thanks for joining me on the Blogland Tour.
I LOVE sharing other bloggers with you as well. I am blown away by the blogging community as a whole. They support and help one another constantly.
