Guest Post: Just Between Friends

I'm so excited to be posting here on Everyday Art! I am loving this blog! Some of my favorite posts are food -related like the pumpkin doughnuts, cinnamon rolls and gingerbread pancakes. (Can you tell I have a sweet tooth?)

Now, if you don't mind, I am going to be taking over today

Let's get down to the nitty gritty....
I'm Jonie from Just Between Friends.  I am married to a man that loves to fish, and we have a 17-month-old little girl that seems to always keep us busy.  I am pretty new to blogging.  I started my blog just this last August, and I love it!  It has been such a great motivator for me as well as a creative outlet. 
Some of my favorite projects I've done are:
#1.  Scrap Wood Shelves  My daughter loves to read, and I wanted a way that I could store her books without her needing to throw them off the shelf to see the cover.  That is how I came up with this idea. 
She still seems to need to throw her books everywhere, but at least she knows what book she is grabbing before she throws it. 
#2.  Fireplace Mantel  When we moved into our house, there was no mantel above the fireplace.  Talk about bor-ing!  I decided to take a stab at it using just some 2X4s and some other various wood.  I LOVE the way it turned out and I am having so much fun decorating it for the holidays.
Some day I am going to try putting up brick or stone or something like that in the space between the fireplace and the mantel.  One thing at a time.

#3.  Front Room Makeover  I wanted to surprise my husband with a room makeover while he was out of town.  I am pretty sure that when I told my husband I had a surprise for him he didn't imagine this.  He of course likes the way it looks.  (I don't think he would dare tell me otherwise)

One of my favorite parts about this room is this pillow.  I made it from the skirt my sister wore at my wedding.  You can read all about how I made the pillows here.

I think that is enough to get you started in my blog.  I really would love for you to stop by and follow along in my many crafting adventures. 

Thanks again for having me over today. You can have your blog back now :)

Thanks Jonie! It's always fun to meet fun people and see their creativity. Don't you love those shelves she made?!!! We made a guest post on her blog on Sunday the 16th--head on over and check it out!
