That was one of the mixed responses I received after finally taking the plunge to start my very own blog. What will I talk about? Are my crafts really that interesting? I mean, I do research a ton when taking on a task and letting my creative juices flow. Will I sound to lax or maybe too professional? Will people even read what I have to write about?
Whew! You can imagine how my brain was doing back flips! Self doubt can really be a back stabber at times. Yet, here I am sipping my fall blend coffee and starting my blog. Ironically, the mug that I’m sipping from says “follow your dreams”. I’ve always been a very crafty person. Somehow it just comes naturally and when I get the itch to do something I organize a plan to make it happen!
So what WILL I be blogging about you ask? Well, lets see…. My main topics will be about all of the projects I do in my apartment from redesigning to making my own natural products and trying to live a greener lifestyle under the “DIY” section of the site. Next up we have the “Take a gander” tab that will show you how I mix and match my decor during the seasons to keep my space looking and feeling inviting and warm. Can you take a guess at what “All The Monies” is about? If you guessed financial freedom , then you are correct! Over the past few years I have dipped in the idea and books of becoming financially free of debt. I give tips and reading recommendations on how to slowly start making your way up the financial freedom mountain, while I climb with you. Lastly, we have “Plant Babies”, because who doesn’t LOVE plants and a pop of green in their home? I talk about what plants work great for different spaces decor wise and how to keep them thriving even if your thumb is black!
I hope that I can share this part of my life with you’ll and teach some of the things I’ve gathered through research, trial and error over the past few years and even months.
