Featured Pinner Friday


Pinner of the Week

Let's give a big shout out to DeDe from Designed Decor.



Hello all the lovelies from My Crazy Beautiful life blog, I am so excited to be a featured pinner on Denyse’s blog.  I am DeDe Bailey, I live in Canton, Ohio.  I have lived in Ohio all of my life and my dream is to move south (North or South Carolina) once my youngest has graduated from High School.  So that is 2 years 4 months and a few days, but who is counting?   I have been blessed with the opportunity to leave the corporate world and be a stay at home mom. My situation is a little backwards, in that my children are older and not young and impressionable. I have 4 handsome young men. The older 2 are my step sons, Alex 24 and Spencer 22. My sons are Mack 19 and Mitch 16. I was given the opportunity to leave my job and pursue my home based business and to enjoy my boys’ high school years before they are off starting their own lives.  I love to craft, create, re-purpose  bake and organize.  You can see all the inspirations I have on my Pinterest boards

When did you first start blogging?* I  started blogging in April of 2012, so I am approaching my 1 year blog anniversary. 

What inspired you to blog?* I first decided to blog to bring traffic to my Etsy shop.  I did a little research on SEO and every site stated a blog can increase your traffic for your online business.  I am NOT a writer and English was my least favorite subject in school, so blogging to me seemed to out of my comfort zone.   I starting to find all these really great blogs and a lot of the blogs stated that is you blog about your passions, you don’t’ have to be a great writer.  I decided I can do this.  So it began. 

What do you blog about?* I blog about handmade, decorating and just plain living.  My blog posts are usually on the current house projects that I am working on, re-purposing furniture, making crafts and baking.  Since these are the passions I have, these are the things that I blog about.  

What is the best thing about blogging?Wow, where do I begin on this one?  As I stated before, I started to blog to increase traffic to my shop and have fallen in love with the blogging aspect. I love the friends that I am meeting in the blog world and the support that they all give.  I love the opportunities that can be mine with a little hard work.  I love the freedom to create and then to be able to share it with the world. I love how much that I have learned about seo, blogging and how to build my own site.  The resources online are endless.  I love the fact that I can build my blog as big as I would like or just keep it small, the choice is mine.  Blogging has given me an inner joy that shows in all that I do.  Oh course I have to thank my wonderful husband for the opportunity, to stay at home and do what I would have never thought would bring me so much joy!

Featured Pinner Friday


Pinner of the Week

Let's give a big shout out to Rachel from The Easley's.


I am a wife and a momma to a 14 month old named Rowen. My husband Brent and I have a very fun life filled with lots of adventures. I live in Nashville, TN. Love the South! I enjoy DIY projects and spending time in the kitchen trying out new recipes. We love spending time outdoors and trying new restaurants in our city! There are lots of new places popping up. I am slightly obsessed with monogrammed items and all things sparkly!! You will find that out when looking through my Pinterest boards! I couldn't go one day without coffee and definitely not a week without my favorite food: mac & cheese. I am looking forward to see what 2013 has in store for our family...it's going to be a great year!!

When did you first start blogging?* I first started blogging back in 2010. It was right after my husband and I got married. We wanted to give friends and family a place to keep up with us and read what was going on in our lives. "We" started it but I soon took it over! 

What inspired you to blog?* I started hearing people talk about blogs a few years ago and then started reading friends blogs to see what this blogging world was exactly. After reading through various blogs and playing around with one myself, I thought "hey, this might be fun! And  like I mentioned we wanted to have a spot on the www where friends and family could come to check in on our lives...enter The Easley's!

What do you blog about?* I blog about a little bit of everything. I mainly focus on our day to day lives and everything in between. You will find lots of pictures in my posts. I love taking pictures and just think those make the posts more enjoyable. I also love to post DIY projects I complete,  and I like to share recipes that I love! 

What is the best thing about blogging?* The best thing about blogging is meeting other bloggers! I loved finding others that are in Nashville especially! And there are sooooo many blogs out there...I never knew! So there is a little bit of everything to read about in the blogging world. I love being able to share about our family and love that others love reading what I write.

Featured Pinner Friday...

Pinner of the Week
Let's give a big shout out to Kristy from Shona Sky Creations.

Hi ya! My name is Kristy and I blog at Shona Skye Creations! I'm so chuffed that Denyse is featuring me today! I've been married to a boy from Glasgow, Scotland since the Dawn of Time, I'm Mom to two college-aged boys, a teenage daughter, and four fur babies. In addition to blogging and turning garbage into greatness, I babysit a darling little girl and work as a freelancer in the administrative assistant field. Check out my "About Me" on my blog. I'm pretty out there. LOL

When did you first start blogging? I started in January, 2012, but didn't really get serious until around October.

What inspired you to blog? When my kids were young, we were broke - all the time. I was a WAHM and I wasn't going to put my kids in daycare to get a regular job just to keep up with The Jonses. Being a hands-on mom was the most important thing to me. I don't like uninspiring, boring places and I didn't want my home to be like that, but I couldn't afford to be hitting up the furniture and decor stores. So, I started going to thrift stores out of necessity and found that I was good at taking my artsy side and turning tacky junk into cool, funky, unique, and functional items. 

Now, even though I'm not broke like that anymore, I still thrift all the time and I see it as a personal failure if I have to buy something "new." I thought of how discouraged I would get early on, looking at all the glossy decorator magazines and blogs and websites. Once I started making our home unique, cool, and polished, I got so many people asking me to give them advice on what to do with their spaces or if I would make them one of my projects that they really liked. I want to inspire people to not just "make do" but to "make awesome." Don't keep up with The Jonses. They are boring. Leave them in the dust and do it without their debt!

What do you blog about? I started out strictly with the idea of being a DIY blogger, but I'm naturally chatty (as you can see), so it has really turned into a mixed bag of DIY, decorating, lifestyle, humor, photography, etc. If I'm learning it, I'm probably blogging it. It's a warts-and-all blog, fails included. If you can't laugh at yourself, you are missing out. Perfection is boring - and not particularly inspiring.


What is the best thing about blogging? In part, it's finding your niche and others who share the same passions as you do. But, it's also so valuable as a means to keep yourself inspired! You are gonna get off your butt if your readers are expecting to see a post in their newsfeeds the next day. And it's impossible, as you make friendships with like-minded bloggers, not to be inspired by their work. As selfish as it sounds, I get more out of it than I can ever give back.

Thanks so much, Denyse!! <3 <3 <3

Kristy is quite the pinner too with 35 boards and over 2000 pins!!! 

If you get a chance stop over and give Kristy a great big virtual pat on the back. This is where you can stalk find her...



CONGRATULATIONS, KRISTY!!!

Featured Pinner Friday




Let's give a big shout out to Audra from The Kurtz Corner.


Hi! I'm Audra, creator and author of The Kurtz Corner. For as long as I can remember I've been a pretty crafty gal. Now, it's not documented, but I'm pretty sure my first words as a child were glitter and hot glue. It all started with coloring books and painting, art class and craft nights, which ultimately led to opening my first jewelry business in high school, way before Etsy was around! Years later in 2011 I created my first blog, The Kurtz Corner, as a creative outlet and to share my affinity of all things crafty and baking with the world! Blogging has become such a huge part of my life and I have made so many wonderful connections! 

When did you first start blogging? May 2011

What inspired you to blog? I really just needed a creative outlet! I would make so many crafts and bake so many treats that my friends and family loved, I figured, why not share it with the world?!

What do you blog about? I blog mostly about DIY crafts and baking with a few real life posts thrown in the mix!

What is the best thing about blogging? The best part of blogging for me is seeing my crafts and recipes inspire others! It make my heart so happy to see others inspired by what I love to do. Blogging has also given me the wonderful opportunity to connect with so many women across the states and even around the world!
She's quite the pinner too with 46 boards and over 1500 pins!!!
