I love that site too Kristen, I have a tufted headboard from them on my to-do list right now!! :)


I cannot even pick one site, though.  I more find one piece to inspire me and then kind of go from there googling like crazy for pieces to fit in.  I like making my own inspiration boards our of the bits and pieces I find.  Occasionally I'll find an actual room inspiration by googling my color scheme once I decide, but I don't really follow one blog or website religiously.  :)  There are just so many great ones out there!!

Totally random...but Kristen I just noticed it says you have 15 badges, but when I looked at them you haven't received 3 of them.  What's up with all these badge glitches all of the sudden?!

I don't really follow home blogs ... yet!  haha.  I just randomly Google what I'm looking for.


But this girl made me want to be a crafty SAHM:

Some of these ladies seriously BLOW me away with their craftiness, resourcefulness, and ideas!!  Sometimes the things they find just seem impossible to me... I need to get better about garage sale-ing and venturing to flea markets.  I do bargain shop for things at discount stores, but I rarely if ever look at used stuff.

Oh weeeeeeeird!!  When I just looked a moment ago it said you were missing 3...10 carat diva, super grouper & BOTW.  Then I looked back when you said only 1 & sure enough, BOTW was the only one missing.  How strange!!


 


Anyway, it must just be the thrift stores near me that are the problem, but everytime I go I am blown away at how *expensive* everything is!!  Not what I expected.  I don't really follow any home blogs.  When we bought our house in 2007 I spent a lot of time on hgtv rate my space & got inspiration from other people's homes.  That plus hgtv shows, specifically Color Splash & Divine Design.  Now I am getting inspiration primarily from Pinterest & google :)
