Blog Feature: Lindsay!

1. Tell us about yourself! (your name, your age, what you do etc)

My name is Lindsay, and I am a nineteen year old mother, cosmetologist, college student, crafter, and blog designer. I reside in Ahwatukee, Arizona, attend Arizona State majoring in English Lit, and have the most wonderful men in my life: my son Emerson- epitome of little boy, and fiance Brian (who blogs at http://www.brianwingate.blogspot.com) who is a paralegal-musician extraordinaire with a love for the ocean and Zen.

2. What kind of crafts (or other hobbies) are you into right now?

I've crocheted since I was a wee one, so I think its definitely my favorite! I also love re-purposing items, embroidery, and coming up with unique DIY projects. As far as other hobbies, I love designing blog layouts, reading, watching films, event planning, writing, thrifting, cooking, and going on roadtrips!

3. What are some of your current obsessions?

Wedding planning!
(our wedding blog: http://www.wesawsparks.blogspot.com) Collecting owls of all sorts (I have a cookie jar, plush, owl ribbon, etc.) LOST, tattoos, and Valentines Day!

4. What is one of your crafty goals (or other goals) for 2010?

I have so many! I think my biggest one is to get my etsy shop back up and running and do a nice update for each holiday.

5. What makes your blog special and why should we read it?

Well, I like to think of myself as a "do-it-all" gal, and my blog definitely reflects that. I share a lot of my personal life, and am very honest and open- a characteristic I feel not all bloggers are comfortable with.. I love to answer questions. I also share a lot of "inspiration" in my posts, as well as anything I love from music to film to crafts, etc. Lots of big things coming from me! Including my etsy shop, a vintage shop, more tutorials ranging from hair- both era (think fingerwaves & rolls!) to crafting, a free mini class, and some live shows.

ALSO! I'm hosting a giveaway on my blog! :) & its a big one!

6. Name your 5 favorite blogs! (with the links so I can link them)

This is really tough! I don't like to pick and choose favorites, but I guess I'll share some bloggers who I have come fairly familiar with and make sure I check on everyday:
Sometimes Sweet:
Sunday Morning Sugar.
Inspired Mess.
Mucho Mucho Bueno Bueno.
