Blogland Tour

Recently I was invited by Kimberly of Camp and Cottage Living to participate in a Blogland Tour.  Kimberly and her husband live in Northern Ontario, Canada.  After several years of working and traveling, Kimberly has learned to live a simpler life and LOVE it.  She's a new blog friend who is all around creative.

I was asked to answer a few questions about my writing process, then invite another blogger to join in on the fun.

So here's how my brain works...

How does my writing process work?
Being a disorganized mess can make the process difficult.  Take notes!  As a wife and mother there are too many things competing for my attention.  When inspiration strikes, I jot down my ideas.  If I'm having a hard time focusing, having my notes helps.

Why do I write what I do?
I blog because I enjoy it.  I blog to share my ideas.  But sometimes it's a challenge to stay inspired to create.

How does my work/writing differ from others?
I have a budget!  I use it as an oppurtunity to be more creative.

What am I working on?
My main projects are photographing my bathroom and the moulding work that was completed.  I'm also excited to share a paint project with you.  I let my blog take the backseat this summer.

But enough about me, now I would like to introduce you to Charity!

Hey Y’all!  I’m Charity and my blog is Life After Baseball and rightfully so.  I started my blog in 2006 after my husband retired from a thirteen year professional baseball career.  I was a baseball wife living the crazy baseball life that only a few can truly understand.  My blog started out as a way to keep in touch with family and friends around the country, but now my content has evolved and is more centered on lifestyle & fashion.  I’m a health nut and hate to be cold.  You will find me trying new recipes, dabbling a tad in DIY (as long as I can get my husband on board), decorating our home and hanging with family. I’m also a sucker for soft, gray sweatshirts (my “uni” [uniform]) and am not scared to put on my pj's at 5pm.  I’m obsessed with fashion & shoes.  I change my nail polish frequently and am always searching for the perfect outfit!

I hope you will click over and pay her a visit.  

Thank you again Kimberly for including me.

Headboard Week at Remodelaholic

Hi guys!  Today I'm guest posting over at Remodelaholic.  I'm sharing one of my favorite projects, a DIY headboard that I made for our master bedroom.  You can view the post here

Additionally, Cassie is hosting a headboard-specific link party and we would LOVE for you to join the party and share your DIY headboard too.  *The only rule is that the projects linked must be a headboard with a DIY component (painted, upcycled, built from scratch, etc)

Hope to see you there!
