Hey guys! My super awesome bloggy friend Melissa from A Prudent Life invited me to take a trip down the rabbit hole with her, so I said heck yeah. *Grin* Don’t worry it isn’t anything weird or inappropriate (although I bet you were wondering why I would squeal my “yes” so quickly). She tagged me in this neat Touring Through Blogland series. That means I get to answer 4 questions, and you learn a bit more about me than you probably cared to know. Then I get to introduce you to a couple other blog friends with a-mazing blogs, then they’ll do the same the following week!
But before I share a little bit about me… have you met Melissa? Melissa and Katie (from Addicted 2 DIY) were my roommates at the Haven conference…and well, as girls do (I think we forgot we were grown women with families), after a night of “spilled secrets” and lots of giggles, you can’t help but become chummy. Check out her post from last week (I’m in it!!) and learn a thing or two about her. Mmmm, also check out her awesome craft room! Be still my beating crafty heart!
So You Wanna Know About Little Ole Me?>>
· What am I working on right now?
I’m currently working on my home office/craftspace/workspace/sitting room. Yep, this room is going to be the jack-of-all-trades room! I can’t wait to show you guys in a month or two (if I can ever finish)!
Just for you (well, and for Tatertots & Jello since I shared it there two weeks ago), a sneak peek at one of my office projects.
· How does my work differ from others in this genre?
DIY bloggers are awesome and I love being in this blog genre, but occasionally I think we have to reel ourselves back in and remember the purpose behind what we do. That is doing it for family. I firmly believe that decorating should be a process married to organization, and organization should be for the betterment of us as people. Believe it or not, I don’t make a pretty, well organized space just for looks…I believe in making a space that functions to make some aspect of my (and my family’s) life simpler, and enable us as we strive to form positive habits.

Do You Know Jessica from Gourley Girl & Guy?
I met Jessica when I threw myself (in extreme exhaustion) into a chair near her at Haven. I think I asked if it was taken…I’m not sure because I’d pretty much kicked my manners to the curb in my haze. Lo and behold, this chica was just what I needed to perk up! In no time at all she had me in stitches with anecdotes! Jessica is chock full of personality…I liked her instantly!
More About Jessica: Hey friends! I’m Jessica from Gourley Girl & Guy and I share a little bit of everything.

We truly hope you’ll come join us as we blog about all kinds of stuff (the sarcasm and bad puns are free!) and work on making our house into a home. We’re desperate to throw a party–and YOU are invited!
