For those of you who may have thought otherwise, I’m still here! Alive and well.
It has been a long Christmas break from blogging for me. A little too long… But I’m here with many fresh ideas for the New Year. I don’t have anything prepped for today, but while you wait, let me introduce you to some of my family members that are fairly new to the blogging world as well.
First off, we have my Mom. She is most often the one I go to for interior decorating advice. Well not just interior stuff but pretty much anything decor and home reno related. Her most recent enterprise has been refurbishing, repurposing and recycling old furniture headed for the dump. For many pieces she finds all that’s needed is a little creativity and TLC… her specialty. Here are a few of her furniture redos:
Check out more of here stuff here. You will not be disappointed! While your there, be sure to look at this post. Every Christmas, my family has a tradition of instead of giving gifts to everyone, we each choose a name from a hat and that’s who we give a gift to that year. We have a couple rules though. The gift has to be homemade and can cost no more than $20. Every year our gifts to each other keep getting more and more creative. I especially love this tradition because it takes us away from the mass consumerism seen around the holiday season. Yes, making gifts is more challenging and takes more time, but the effort is well worth it in the end.
And I just need to show off the gift I got. My Dad and Fuzz (my brother-in-law) had mine and Darryl’s name so they combined their efforts this year to make this:
Isn’t it beautiful? It was made from wooden pallets that they took apart and planed and then put back together to make this. I love it!
The other new blogger in the family is my sister. She is a budding photographer with an eye for those amazing shots. Check out her website here. Here’s a few of her pictures that I especially love:
She also recently took some family photos for us. Here is a great shot of our little family.
And here’s one of my beautiful baby girl.
So there is just a few of my talented family members. I’ll be back soon with some Green ideas for you to start off the new year!
