Home & Style

Jen has style. She’s got a great home decor blog. (all these gals I met at Creative Estates were so cute) Any girl who has her outfits completely organized for an upcoming conference, takes photos to share with us……..yep. Style.  And she looked pretty cute in her outfits.  She was such a sweetie and I was so happy to meet her.

Home Decorating Blogs

It’s always so nice to meet someone in person that you’ve interacted with online.  I love seeing how all you ladies bring style into your homes.  I like how you put your own personal spin on something.  Sure it’s always great to get an idea from someone, and then to make it our own.  That’s Home Style.  What’s your style?

Scissors & Spatulas

The perfect time is after a holiday or season.  Not only do you get something a bit more original in the end, but it’s a great way to use inspiration from Pottery Barn or Ballard Designs to create your own.  So much more satisfying.

Home Everything

You are going to DIE when you see the transformation with Jen’s kitchen.  WOW!  I lack the ability to have the end vision.  Her kitchen looks completely different!  It now has style……..painting those cabinets was the best thing she ever did!  PAINT!!kitchen remodel

Organized Home

This is brilliant!  I’m making a mental note for my craft room.  She took a shorter curtain rod, painted it the color she wanted.  Used some “S” hooks and hung cute little buckets.  These buckets look darling and hold all her children’s crafty items…….and so easy to put away.   As long as the kids don’t try to swing these, I think you’ll be OK.  But if they swing them fast enough, nothing will fall out…….unless the bucket flies across the room.  But hey…….it will be a cute mess.IKEA organizing

Cook with Style

Now that she’s got that fabulous kitchen, I’m sure she’s whipping up some pretty good fixin’s.  I love a good broccoli slaw.asian salad recipeAnd I’d have to be dead to not enjoy this cakecake recipeI think you’ll enjoy Jen’s blog…….of course I do, otherwise I wouldn’t have featured her.  Remember, I NEVER tell a blogger they are being featured.  NEVER!  That would just be wrong.  And remember, I always rely on my fabulous readers to leave them a comment letting them know.  Surprise her!  It will be the BEST DAY OF HER LIFE!

    I met Jen at Creative Estates and her blog has become a favorite. I don’t think we had a chance to say hello at CE. Darn!
