First of all, let me give everyone a huge THANK YOU for the sweet comments on my magazine feature post! I certainly felt loved. One of the great things about being a blogger is all the support you get when you have something big happen in your life, whether it be good or bad. It was so nice to be able to share my news with everyone.
Today, I'm participating in a blog tour. I was invited by Penny at The Comforts of Home. I've been following her for years, even before I started blogging. I remember when her blog had a different name! She mostly blogged about her beautiful mosaic creations back then. She and her husband have purchased and renovated many homes in their lifetime. It's amazing to see the before and after's! She currently lives in a beautiful home in NC that she renovated into a french country style. But I'm most jealous of her incredible back yard space!
Ok........let's get this tour started!
I'm supposed to answer these 4 questions.
1) What are you working on right now?
Well, I'm not working on any major or very exciting projects at the moment. I'm actually working on cleaning and sprucing up our front porch. (So it can live up to the picture in the magazine.) I have a lot of things that need to be done though. I need to update our master bathroom. I hope to get to that some time this year. I also need to repaint our garage interior and clean up our basement. Those just don't sound very fun though. Any volunteers???
2) How does my work differ from others in this genre?
This question threw me off for a minute. My work? Well, maybe they mean my blog. My blog is a home decorating/home cooking/gardening/family blog. I think there are dozens out there just like mine. The only thing I can say that makes mine different is that it's about MY home/MY cooking/MY garden/My family. I love sharing all of these with everyone and hope that it brings some inspiration to others the way their blogs do for me.
3) Why do I write/create what I do?
I enjoy sharing my home with other people. I like the interaction that goes along with blogging. It's like a cyber world of like minded people that I wouldn't normally get the chance to meet any other way.
4) How dos your writing/creating process work?
I'm not usually a spontaneous style person. I'm a planner, list maker, organizer etc. However, when it comes to blogging, I often just do it "on the fly". I literally come up with something to write about very close to the time I sit down and do it. I don't do a lot of planning (except for blog tours like this). I often write about what I'm passionate about that day. What my inspirations are or something new that I want to share. That's it. I try to keep my blog fun and not write for the sake of writing.
So, now that I've shared a little bit about myself. It's time to pass the baton over to these 3 lovely bloggers that I've chosen. They will participate in this tour next Monday, June 23rd. These are blogs that I enjoy visiting and I think you will too. They all have one very important trait in common. They are very sweet attentive bloggers. If you visit them, you will make friends with them instantly!!
1) Lisa at Texas Decor
She started her blog over a year ago. She blogs about traditional decorating and sharing simple and inexpensive home decor tips that she has learned. She likes to share holiday decor and recipes as well.
2) Christine at Little Brags
She lives in a house in the Pacific Northwest. She blogs about her casual eclectic style that includes many DIY projects and rustic accents. And watch out for the most adorable bunny, she owns, that you've ever seen!
3) Carol at Art and Sand
She writes about life in a tiny California beach cottage. She shares decorating and gardening along with creative projects such as hand painted pillows and signs. She loves attention to detail and is constantly tweaking things around the house.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of mine. Be sure to check out more tours next Monday!
Thanks for stopping by.
