Building My Nest
Blogging isn't new to me, but blogging about decorating and creative crafts sure is! I have been a faithful blogger since 2008- when my first lil boy, Evan, was born. We now have added another little birdie to our family, a sweet blue-eyed boy named, Pierson! He celebrates his first birthday this month! My other blog (www.thefamilyof3scotts.blogspot.com) is faithfully devoted about my life as a wife to my husband who is an assistant pastor, and mom to my 2 boys who are only 19 months apart! This blog is just for my new love- decorating on a poor man's budget! We have recently purchased our 3rd foreclosure- and we have worked many hours on decorating, remodeling, tearing down, and painting! We don't have alot of extra money for decorating- so thats where the fun starts! I love to shop Malls, ebay, craigslist, thrift stores, and yard sales. But- let me go ahead and be honest. 98% of my ideas come from blogs and magazines that I read. Yes, I am a copy-cat, but I think thats o.k- we can all learn from each other! So here we go- let the "building" begin!
I am a wife to my best friend and a mother to my 2 beautiful boys. I am so thankful for God's blessings on my life....the most important being the gift of salvation. If you do not know Jesus as your Savior- please let me introduce you to him today! My desire is to daily "build" my nest by making it a Godly, Beautiful and safe refuge for my family!
