Hi friends! Fancy meeting you here. Pull up a chair and grab a cuppa. So nice of you to join me!
This is *actually* not my first post -- I'm trying to figure out how to transfer some content over from my personal domain website (www.whimsysmitten.com), but all this blogstuff is whizzing over my head where the details are concerned. Some of you will know me from, or recognize my lurking from The Accidental Rancher site, a blog I've been keeping about the ups and downs of rural living. This blog, in my wildest fantasies, is here to satiate the (very large) part of me that eats, sleeps, breathes, and dreams all things crafty, cottage-y, whimsical, and joyful.
Like what?, you ask? Well, I'll tell ya. ;)
Rescuing a discarded piece of furniture with some love and creativity, then putting it to use in beautifying a space is something akin to a love affair for me. Sprucing up a corner of the house with a tweak here and a fidget there... magic-making, I tell you. It's safe to say that I love to decorate. And redecorate. And re-re-decorate. The challenge of making my dreams come true on a wee-little budget adds to the excitement. So, HGTV... eat your heart out. Welcome to Whimsy Smitten.
Well okay, I wish I could claim to be some kind of expert or professional, but really... I'm still learning at most of this. Most of my projects are completed with one of the Littles (my 10-year-old son, 7-year-old daughter, and 2-year-old son) climbing on me, begging for cookies or just-ten-more-minutes-on-the-Wii-mom-please, or alerting me of an emergency involving blood (and often, all of the above, all at once, just like most the moms I know).
Anyway, I hope you'll love my blog. Stop by often for updates on what I'm working on, things that are currently floating my proverbial boat, and everyone's favorite...giveaways! Pictures coming tomorrow.
