Twigies! I’m so excited to be here again. I love me some Hayley and that fact that she asked me to guest post again...well, that’s just icing on the cake. I can usually be found over at Pure and Noble chatting about crafts, things around the home or weekly challenges. I’d love for you to pop by for a visit sometime.
Inspirational Blogs - (Before I list my 3 daily reads, I feel I must inform you that I have a problem with blogs. It’s an addiction really. There are so many amazingly creative and talented women out there that inspire the pants off of me. I hate to say it, but there are literally 25-30 daily reads that I could list. Yikes! disclaimer: blogs have replaced my severe magazine addiction and blogs are free as well as personal!)
*Knack Studios – Barb is a dear friend and always inspires me with color and furniture make-overs. She is insanely talented – and pretty darn funny too.
*Under the Sycamore – I love Ashley’s style and how she melds crafting, home, family and amazing photography into one blog. She’s one crafty Mama.
*Today’s Letters – I’ve mentioned my friend Em’s blog here before, but it must be mentioned again! She and her husband Tim have a love for one another, the Lord, life and friends that inspires me. Em makes me laugh, challenges me to find humor and adventure in life and makes me want to be a better wife! Does it get any better than that?
Dream Outfit -
I love that both are simple, comfortable, understated, neutral and stylish without trying too hard.
Dream Office -
I love the white floors, the old sewing machine, typewriter and lighting. Not to mention the amazing map and industrial storage. This office is so the opposite of mine. I think that’s one of the reasons I love it so. I could see this being the hubs office for sure.
Favorite Picture -
This is a picture of me and my hubs on vacation in Portland. We borrowed a friend’s car and drove to the beach one day. It was so amazing. We got lost in looking at all of God’s creation, big and small. I think our joy is captured in this picture as well as the serenity we felt that day.
What I Love About Myself -
I love that I know how to sew. What was once a dying trade is now becoming very popular again and I love that. My Grandmother owned her own clothing company waaaay back in the day and actually sold to JC Penney. Awesomeness. My Mom and I both made our own wedding dresses. When I was making mine I used my Mom’s old Singer, the flower from her veil and she sat beside me giving me confidence and conversation the whole time. It’s a memory I will treasure forever. I hope to one day teach both of my boys how to sew. It’s truly a gift and an art form.
Okay, that’s all I’ve got twigies. I hope you are somehow inspired by what I’ve shared here today. TT, YOU rock the casbah! Xo, Brooke
