Last week I was asked to be a part of the DIY Blog Tour! Here’s how it works:
Debi from Adorned From Above was nominated by Kim from Curtain Queen Creates. Then, she featured 3 bloggers, one of which was Jessica from Plucky’s Second Thought who in turn featured ME! (Thanks lady!) I shared my House Guest printables as one of my favorite DIY projects to date.
Now it’s my turn to answer the same four questions and feature 3 bloggers, giving a 2-3 sentence bio on each of them, a link to their blogs and their favorite DIY project.
I was supposed to get this up Monday… but, one or two million things kept getting in my way! Hopefully the bloggers I feature will be able to get a DIY blog tour up and running by next Monday so the tour can keep on going. I’m having fun going through the blogs that have been featured and connecting with awesome projects.
Part of this tour is answering four questions about me.
Hello, I’m Jenni…
- What are you working on?
- Boy, this is a loaded question. If you could see my house right now you’d actually see several (SEVERAL) piles of different projects covering nearly every inch. Part of it is stuff I still need to organize and put up from recent projects including my recent Ryan Gosling themed birthday party and the Portland Bloggers’ Back to Blogging School event. I also have Halloween projects laying about along with a Christmas project I started last week. My computer desktop is even worse off! I’m busy creating some holiday printable sets for you and I couldn’t be happier with how they are turning out! So, mainly I’ll be working on crafting fun parties and getting the posts live.
- Why do you write/create what you do?
- I have a strong NEED to create. It has always been in me and I’ve always had a zillion projects going on at one time. Being able to share the projects is such a joy. My blog serves for many purposes… but, one big purpose is to record all the creations and the other is to share them. I’m glad that I have this space and an audience that enjoys the creations!
- How does my work differ from others of its genre?
- Sometimes I am not sure if it does. I often create something and find out that someone else has already shared something similar. (Take this amazing frozen wine cocktail for example.) I think I also offer a sense of humor to some of my projects and parties. I enjoy getting a giggle while creating. I enjoy even more when I hear someone else enjoy the humor!
- How does your writing/creative process work?
- My creative process only really works (and works well) on a deadline. I can spend weeks working on something and then suddenly be inspired and motivated when I only days to go.
Get to know these awesome bloggers…

Meet Christine of ChristineTrevino.com
Favorite DIY Post: Thankful Jar Tutorial & Printables
About: Blogging has been a journey of discovery, unlocking new passions and recovering ones that I’ve forgotten along the way. Sometimes I talk about my family or my faith. Sometimes I share stories, or projects, or recipes. This is my outlet. My therapy. My space to be me . . . however I need to be me on any given day.
Meet Lindsey from MacSuzie.com
Favorite DIY Post: DIY Reusable Cup Sleeve
About: At MacSuzie.com, you will find a little bit of everything: cooking/baking, crafts, beauty, home stuff, things for all seasons, family, travel, and a little of the wisdom I pick up along the way. I’d call my style comfortable and homey, with a lot of color. I’m especially inspired by my mom and grandma, and our family’s traditions. I also love things from days gone by (a Buzzfeed quiz aptly placed me in the 50’s), although I’m not exclusively a vintage girl. I love to re-purpose, giving old things a fresh look with a dash of “MacGyver” and a sprinkle of “Suzie Homemaker” thrown in for good measure.
