Whitney, Whitney, Whitney… What can I say other than there will never be another like her! Have you ever walked into someone elses home and absolutley fallen in love with everything they own? This is the way I felt when Whitney came into my life. She is free spirited, artistic, and funny and those wonderful characteristics shine through in her personal style. She has every art supply known to man, pictures framed in her room that say things like “Today I will be happier than a bird with a french fry!”, and her favorite old tennis shoe as a vase for her favorite type of flower, the orchid. I would never say that I am jealous of Whitney’s artistic style, but appreciate and at times would love to emulate it.
So, I guess I would have to say that this is my tribute to Whitney and the artistic side of me that she helped to awaken!
So…here goes nothin! My name is Lindsay and I have absolutely NO experience with blogs but was introduced to them by a former roommate. I was very inspired by her blog and felt compelled to forge ahead in making my own. (Thank you Whitney for the inspiration!) The blog I am referring to is RedCouch+GrayDog.wordpress.com and I encourage you to check it out.
After checking out Red Couch + Gray Dog along with many other blogs I realized that I too had many thoughts and ideas I wanted to share with the world. I do not claim to be a master artist or writer, but I do feel that I am crafty and would like to put my artistic ability to good use.
Now that I have introduced myself and my initial influence for starting this blog, I would also like to thank my mother. I recently called my mother for a little pick me up and some advice about the direction my future is taking. In this conversation she refered to me as “a Martha Stewart on a budget”. Ok, thanks mom! I was not offended by this, but inspired by it. I do feel that I am crafty and would be great at decorating on a budget.
I guess you could say that between reading so many crafty blogs and the inspiration from my mother I would like my blog to inspire others to spruce up their life even if they too are doing it on a minimum budget.
