Susan from Must Love Junk, and myself (Kris) Junk Chic Cottage wanted to do a regular feature on our blogs, something unique that hasn't been done before. So we came up with an idea to 'spotlight the real life behind the blogger' in a more personal way.
There is so much talent and inspiration in blogland, and we thought it would be fun to bring you a closer look at the person behind the blog.
Every week on Saturday we will spotlight a blogger and have them tell us a little bit about themselves and their blogs. You will be able to see and read about each of the bloggers on both Susan's and my blog.
Saturday March 8th
Kathleen from Musings From A French Cottage
Good Saturday Morning. I have a wonderful blogger to introduce you to this week. Kathleen from Musings From A French Cottage. Please grab your favorite beverage and sit back and enjoying learning about this really sweet blogger.
Thank you so much Kris, for inviting me to be here today. I'd love to share a little bit about myself!
I'm Kathleen, the blogger behind Musings From a French Cottage. I'm a wife to my wonderfully amazing husband, mom to four fabulous kids,
and dog mom to Jack, our yellow lab!
As a family, we love to be outdoors. We love the beach, hiking, swimming, camping, baseball. You name it, we try to fit it in.
About a year and a half ago, my husband and I bought a tiny cabin in the mountains by a beautiful lake.
We love to camp here all year long.
We go tubing in the winter, right out the front door (the view is amazing)...
and tubing in the summer.
We love it here and have such a good time gathering with family.
Okay, so little bit about me...
I have always loved to decorate, paint, create, and take pictures. This has been a passion for as long as I can remember - all the way back to my childhood.
I used to work in the airline industry. I loved it and I traveled A LOT!!
Going to Paris was an amazing experience for me and it is why I love French and European decor so much today. It had such an impact on me and I've had a love for it ever since. I worked and traveled up until our first child was born and then I left the industry to be a stay at home mom. I have loved every bit of the journey, both then and now.
Being home has allowed me to pursue my passions, family and motherhood being the most important! In my spare time though, I love to play with paper...
and create pretty things...
I just recently opened up an Etsy shop called The French Marketplace and I love it because it allows me to share what I've made as well as connect and encourage other people who are doing the same. I'm still learning but I'm determined to make it work!
I also love to paint furniture. I think it is such fun to find an old piece and turn it back into something beautiful. Old furniture has so many stories to tell and so much amazing character!
I'm especially fond of the French pieces that I find.
Finally, I enjoy photography. I'm always trying to learn new things and hone my skills but most importantly, I love to capture moments in time, our children, and childhood. I want to remember every moment. I love scrapbooking and am a huge fan of Project Life!!
Well, that's a bit about me in a nutshell.
Kris, I thank you for allowing me to share the spotlight today. I enjoyed coming over to share a bit about myself!
Thanks Kris. Have a wonderful weekend!http://www.musingsfromafrenchcottage.blogspot.com
