Very First Blog Post

Hi! My name is Julie and I am a blog stalker. For many months, I have enjoyed reading and being inspired by so many blogs. In the spring, I threw caution in the wind and signed up for a Goodwill shop and hop with bloggers that lived in my area. Of course, I was nervous because I just am not the chattie Kathy type. I had a great time. It made me realize that there are others out there that like doing projects just like me.

Thus begins my journey into blogging. Please excuse my stumbling as I learn my way into this blogging world. I plan on sharing the projects I have been inspired to do by so many of you.


  1. Your header is beautiful!

  2. Hi Julie ~ I just wanted to stop by and say welcome to the blogging world :)) I am pretty new at this myself, but I find as the days go by it's all I can think about, LOL!!! I have made a list (I love lists :)) of things that I can write and share. I am not at all a chattie kathy type. In fact, I am the complete opposite. I am a homebody, I really don't have alot of close girlfriends (my life is pretty crazy right now) but for some reason this blog thing really is working for me!! Everyday that goes by I make new friends (like you :) and I just feel so connected. Especially with such like minded women. Like you, I just visited everyone else's for the longest time and then one day I decided it was time and just dove in head first!! I am so glad I did! The women here are so warm, friendly, and encouraging. For a stay at home mom (or grandma like myself) it is the camaraderie that I needed. With every comment that someone leaves it just feels like a huge pat on the back (something that stay at home moms just don't get enough of!!)
    I have looked through your blog and I cannot wait to see what else you have in store :)) I love your slipcover (and your story along with it) and your coffee table ottoman!! That is adorable!!! I do plan on doing tutorials on my blog so be sure and check back. But something tells me that you don't need much tutoring!!
    Thank you so much for visiting my blog :)) Come and visit anytime!!!
    Your #1 follower and new friend :))

    See, I told you I'm not a chattie kathy (hehe)
    See you soon!!!

  3. Your slip cover skills are to die for. I'm going to follow you to see more of your great transformations.


I would really enjoy knowing what you think. I love getting your comments!
