BLOG HOP | A Relay for Bloggers

My lovely cousin Shayla at Angel Skirts (Click Here) has tagged me with a clever blog hop this week and I am so excited to join in on the fun. Believe it or not, this is my first collaboration with other bloggers. I know what you are thinking…I am working on it. LOL. A blog hop is like an internet relay. One blogger passes the baton/topic to to the next blogger and the Par-tay keeps going forever….or until we find another ingenious idea to connect with each other on the World Wide Web.

Without further ado, allow me to hop along and explain why I write. 

What am I working on?

Most of the things you will find on my blog are DIYs and upcycling. All of the topics are focused on using my sewing hand.  I am currently working on bringing a little more variety to my blog page. I have come to the realization that I can achieve this with a with an organized schedule and format.  No matter what I blog about, I always want to show the steps I took to create my masterpiece. I feel this could potentially inspire other to create the same thing with their own spin at an affordable price.  

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

My take on an inspiration is what sets me apart from others. Every blogger is special for the same reason. We bring an attractive personal touch to everything we discuss on our blog. I guess blog posts are like fingerprints…you will never find one EXACTLY alike.

Why do I write what I do?

My blog was inspired with needing an outlet and a lack of resources. For the last decade I have lived in two small towns that lacked quality retail stores. Thrifting and Wal-Mart is all a SISTAH HAS! LOL. Instead of rolling up in a ball and sliding into a state of retail depression, I conformed to my environment and added a twist. I fell in love with bringing things to life and I felt the need to blog about it.  The purpose of my blog is to show people that retail is not the last resort….let’s not even talk about the markup on the items sold in stores. Most of all, I love blogging and I write because it’s my joy!

How does my writing process work?

It usually starts with a glass of Barefoot Moscato and some comfortable pajamas after the kids are down for the count. I have come to the realization that I am no longer living in my world from the hours of 7am to 8pm. It is all about the kids. I guess my blogging process is about getting in where you fit in. This means I constantly use the notepad on my iPad to jot down quick ideas or rip pages out of magazines of things I am inspired by. Once my babies are sleep, I bring my ideas to life. Sometimes I wake up early to get some work done as well. It’s all about finding free time. Remember…this is my outlet and I live to create.

Thank you Shayla for including me on this blog hop! For the next week, I would like to pass the baton on to ANYONE who has a blog and would like to keep this Blog Hippity HOP Par-Tay going. Remember to answer the four questions I addressed in this blog. E-mail me at if you decide to join in the festivities or send me a message on my Facebook Page (Click Here). Hop along and have fun.
