Featured Guest of Sawdust and Paper Scraps

I am being featured today over at Sawdust and Paper Scraps. How funny to think that in sharing my personal love of being a DIY girl, it would end up being something shared on the Internet with all of you!
Sawdust and Paper Scraps

Let me tell you about this most Amazing woman that I met while doing this …

When I was looking to build a playhouse, I searched Pinterest and fortunately for me, someone had pinned her playhouse. It was more of a closet area in the beginning that she was able to transform … it wouldn’t work for my space. However, I went to her website and I was hooked! She has so many amazing projects (did you see her latest Executive Master Closet?) and I instantly connected with her. I kept returning to her website (cyber stalking? LOL, is there such a thing?) and in doing so … found out about the term “Following” someone. What a compliment for anyone! Someone likes what you have to share so much, they would subscribe to follow you, just to hear what you have to share next! WOW! For most of my life I have kept the DIY thing under my hat as it was considered a ‘GUY’ thing. I cannot tell you how many times I have started talking about a project (with enthusiasm … you know what I mean!) and the looks I used to still get made me think something was wrong with me. I love to bake, sew, read, travel, create, and BUILD! We are really at a time in history when women can do things without the stereotype! But how fun for me to have found a whole community of women who love the same things. Hugs people! 🙂

I digress, LOL, I love Sandra and her work but also her character. She reached out and helped without asking anything in return. Rare right?! She has inspired me to work on my closet (scheduled sometime this year) and to reach out and share my story with others. She has  given advice and help, and even though we have not met in person … I consider her a friend. I invite you to visit her at Sawdust and Paper Scraps and enjoy what she is sharing with us.

You are all amazing women and I am honored to be among you in this community of ‘DIY’ers. I look forward to not only sharing with you but you sharing with me as well.

Have a great day! I am off to spend time with Miss Precious and bring her here for a “Sleep Over” and of course let her have fun in The Under The Stairs Playhouse.

    It’s not a guy thing, you know the saying…. ‘behind every successful man’….. who do you think tells them all what to build!

    As a DIY’er what I love is when non DIY’er friends comment on my abilities as if it’s a bad thing!!!!!

    You are sweet BJ. I love that all the DIY women of the world are finding and supporting each other. We have this amazing community of virtual friends and supporters. I think we all have so much to share and learn from each other. Can’t wait to see what you do next!

    What a wonderful feature! That should certainly send people over here to check out what you are all about.

    And, again, thanks for that sweet comment on my blog!
