Who would've thought?

All that would happen because I started this little blog...

In the years since I started a lot has happened in my life, these are a few of the things that happened specifically because I found Blogland and built a little blog house here.

Completely inspired by Jen from The Cottage Nest here is my Top 10 List.

10) Got asked to be a featured house tour in Cookie Magazines Blog, Nesting
9) Had a picture published in Somerset Life magazine.
8) Was asked to blog for Vintage Indie Mag & Blissfully Domestic
7) Had my mantle & banner photographed and featured in At Home in Arkansas Magazine
6) Was asked to submit Christmas items to the Martha Stewart Show for consideration
5) Found out about Etsy and started my Etsy Shoppe
4) Found the courage to try new things both creatively and personally
3) Made new blog friends that became " real life" friends as well
2) Reconnected with wonderful old friends
1) Discovered there was a whole community of crafty gals just like me who inspire me daily - that includes you!

If you have always wondered if you should start a blog I would encourage you to do it! So many wonderful things have come my way because of the blog world and even if I had only experienced numbers 4-1, it would still have been wonderful, because at the end of the day, those are things that matter most.
If you do decide to take the leap and start a blog, please don't be shy! Leave me a comment and let me know so that I can come visit you too!


  1. I totally agree with you. This whole blog thing is so much bigger than I have ever thought it would be. I had a customer come to my store today from quite a distance cause she read my blog! I love it!!! Have a great weekend!

  2. I just started mine this summer, but I don't sell anything. Not right now anyway....but you are welcome to look!

  3. What a great thing to do! I love to make lists of everything good that is happening to me. As far as new bloggers, would you visit my baby sister's?

    She's an amazing writer and I've been bugging her to start a blog for ages and now she has.

  4. I started a blog back in May and you were one of the reasons. I am so inspired by you and your blog. I read it everyday! I actually have a link to your blog on my page. I would love to have you come by for a visit.

  5. Love your list girl! I'm so glad you did start a blog.


ok, really. tell me the truth... do these comments make me look fat?
