Get Inspired Project – Not Just a Housewife

I’m so excited to start this project with a Blog that I truly enjoy and am very inspired by.

Not Just a Housewife Why: Stacy is REAL, and has more power tools that my husband {Awesome}. She is not afraid of showing behind the scenes pictures of her house{Again, I love that she keeps it real}. I remember the first time I read Stacy’s blog, I could not believe how awesome and easy her tutorials were! and how simple she made he Jig Saw and power tools look {As in I was confident I could build something}. This was the first post that got me hooked: “Scrap wood lamp with hand painted shade” Do I need to say more? I Just Love this Girl! One more thing, Her blog Name is the best! I love that she is basically telling you to own it! own what you do, and don’t be ashamed… Trust me, She is definitely ”Not Just a Housewife”


1. Tell me a little bit about your blog & Yourself:

I have been married for almost 12 years to my collage sweetheart. Together we have 4 little boys. I was a major tom boy growing up so I am perfectly happy raising all boys :) I have always been interested in creating things. Even when I was tiny. My mom could never find the scissors or tape when I was growing up and she always knew who to blame!
I have always had people tell me I needed to do something to share my ideas but I didn’t know what. I would teach people whenever I was given an opportunity but as a stay at home mom those chances were few and far between. When I discovered creative blogs I knew I had found the way to finally reach more people than those in my neighborhood. I knew I would be posting my projects but I also was hoping to find inspiration from those who read my blog. I love hosting linky parties for that reason. I feel like it is a place to SHARE ideas. Almost like a get together of friends who all have the same mind set. I am so happy I started my blog :)

2.Do you have a Bucket List and If you so what is one thing that you wish to complete in 2012?

I do have a bucket list. Some of the things on there are quite silly. And it is long. I like to challenge myself. I want to learn to do as many things as I can before I die. But the one I am going to mention is this…… I want to learn to be more disciplined. I am a fly by the seat of my pants kinda girl in the sense that I wake up not really knowing how the day will play out. Will I start a new project when the last 5 are not even done? Will I decided to completely tear everything apart because I have the sudden urge to de-clutter? Or will I feel glum and lie around in PJs and then feel guilty that nothing got done? I know that most people would add “Live more in the moment” to their bucket list, but I think I have that down. I need to almost do the opposite a little more. This year I want to plan more, have a schedule that I actually stick to, and be more organized in thought. In other words….more focused :)
