1.Tell us a little about you and your blog.
My blog is The Country Chic Cottage and it started when I made a new year’s resolution to spruce up my home. The catch? No money to do it with. So it became a little blogging adventure to see what I could make out of very little. Thrifty transformations, decor, crafting, and tutorials all wrapped up in a country farmhouse style!
2.How and when did you start crafting?
Gosh my mom and grandmother were crafting when I was in diapers. It just sort of grew on me. I ignored my inner crafter for so long waiting for the “time” to do it. Now I just make the time. It makes me happy!
3.How often do you craft?
I work full time so the answer would be not as often as I would like. But I would say 4 or 5 days a week I carve a smidgen of time out to do a little something crafty!
4.Where do you get your inspiration?
Blogs and etsy. Two influences I cannot live without. Sure there is pottery barn…but bloggers can take on pottery barn any old day!
5.What is your favorite medium to work in?
I like to sew…okay love to sew. My sewing machine is in my walk in closet. My hubby often asks if I am going to come out of the closet at all that day. **grins**
6.What is your guilty pleasure?
Reality TV. I do not miss Survivor or Big Brother or Wife Swap or Wipeout…okay I am addicted!!
7.What makes you smile?
Hands down…my family! The kids and hubby are what makes me smile. Daily.
8.What is your favorite thing to do (other than crafting)?
Couponing and thrift store shopping tie for this top spot! I love both! Yep I am a frugal woman in all parts of my life! Pay full price??? Me??? NEVER!
