Desert Rose Knit Shop/Living the Creative Life

Hi I'm Jennifer from Living the Creative Life!  I'm a graphic design student who also knits in her spare time.  This summer I've been working on Build Your Blog! summer series.  I'd love for you guys to come check it out!

Why did you start blogging?
I started learning HTML around 1998 or so.  At that point in time there was no such thing as blogging, but I liked to create my own websites and just post recipes and pictures on them.  Eventually Blogger came into being and that was sooo much simpler!  I've since bounces around to several different blogging platforms but decided about a year ago to just stick with Blogger, so that's when I started Living the Creative Life.  My goal with this blog is reall just to be a creative outlet for myself and to be able to share tips and advice I have from my years of designing and creating things.

What is your favorite piece of clothing?
Great question!  I don't think there's anything in paricular that I'm in love with in my closet right now.  I did really love my grey Converse shoes but they broke a couple weeks ago and really need to be replaced!  Lol.  Generally though, I love a good pair of jeans and a soft t-shirt.  I'm a pretty laid-back, casual type of girl.

Eat.  Enjoy.  Live

I'm Helen the perfectly imperfect domestic goddess.  My version of crafting is making something pretty and then realising my fingers are stuck together thanks to a glue gun.  Cooking I'm slightly better at, but filo pastry makes me want to pull my hair out, and you can forget about getting bread to rise.  My life's a little bit crazy, as a result so I am and yes you've guessed it, so's my blog.  I love life and my littlet space on the web.  I would love for you to join this roller-coaster with me.

Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I was a couple years out of Uni, no real career on the horizon and I felt like I'd lost the essence of who I am.  Thanks to writing and communicating with people all over the world. I feel like I'm finally getting 'me' back.

What is your favorite piece of clothing?
My orange chinos.  Love, love, love!  In fact I may be in love with them; can you marry a piece of clothing?  Weird!

Yellow Umbrella

Bonjour!  I am Britt from Yellow Umbrella.  I am a self-taught feelance graphic designer who absolutely loves her job.  I am also all about good music, dark strong coffee, amazing books, and of course my lovely dogs.  On my blog you will find graphic design freebies, music and book info, fashion, and a few other things I enjoy!  Stop by anytime to say hello!

Why did you start blogging?
I began blogging as a way to meet new people and as a creative outlet!

What is your favorite piece of clothing?
My favorite piece of clothing definitely has to be my black blazer.  I love wearing it casually with jeans and super cute shoes!

Win a Thirty-One Little Carry All Caddy!

Free Spirit Reigns 

Hey all!  I'm Torrie, a 20-something year old residing in rural Alberta, Canada where I'm married to the guy of my dreams, have one cat that I love more than I should and expecting my first baby in the fall.  I blog over at Free Spirit Reigns where I like to document things I find inspiration from, like crafting, baking, cat memes, early 2000s hip-hop and the Good Word (in no particular order).  I try to keep things real and find humor in every day life.

Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I've always been a writer/journaler and blogging seemed like the next step in my journaling.  I love reading & interacting with other blogs, so having my own has been a lot of fun!

What is your favorite piece of clothing?
I don't think I have one piece of clothing I love the most, but I do love tops more than anything else.  I wear jeans pretty well every day so I like having a variety of tops to wear.  If I go shopping, I almost always come home with just tops, ha.
Win 2 embroidered note cards and 3 embroidered bookmarks!  A sneak peak into Torrie's Etsy store! 

The Thing About Joy

Hey everyone!  I'm Bree.  A graphic design student, a newlywed, a blog designer, an art journal junkie and a fitness enthusiast!  That's a lot of what you'll see on my blog, as well as some personal random stuff that I like to throw out every once in a while.

Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I needed an outlet to channel my creativity.  Blogging has done that for me and so much more!  I have met some amazing people that I now call friends.  I have a space where I can be as creative as I want to be!  And for some reason, people keep reading!  Never thought I'd have something to say that people want to read.  It's pretty humbling.

What is your favorite piece of clothing?
Umm... Is it bad to say my comfy shorts that I wear around the house? Ya know, the ones that fit so comfortably but are too short to wear out? ... no?  Is that just me. *yikes*  Umm... otherwise- do my Toms count!? I l-o-v-e my grey canvas Toms and my silver glitter Toms!

Skylarking Nanny

Hi, my name is Elle and I blog over at Skylarking.  It all started out as a way for me to document my job as a nanny because some of my kids are funny as hell, but now it has turned into a more personal diary.  I post pictures, and crafts and stories and drawings.

Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging a couple of years ago over at Riding Giraffes in Stillettos with my best friend and haven't looked back, I love it.

What is your favorite piece of clothing?
My favourite piece of clothing, this is a tough one I just sorted out all my clothes recently, I would have to say a mid length tulle skirt in nude that  I wear ALL the time!
