A sweet lady blogger and one of the women I consider my friend, Sarah at Modern Country Style, is holding a "Define your Blog" challenge.
I've been trying to think about what really defines my blog and this is really a tough one. I started the blog as a place to keep my inspirations and show off my finds on my journey to make a new life in Alaska.
It's become a little more work than I thought, but to keep true to my mission....my goal for Blooming in Alaska is to show that no matter where you live, you can make your house a home.
I hope that my blog content shows that passion. I have lived in temporary housing, rental homes, military housing, a trailer house, and a custom built beautiful farmhouse. We moved here to this house without ever having seen it in person. Stability and permanency is very hard to find, so it's important to be flexible and to make the best of what life gives you.
My style is relatively traditional, but I'm also very practical. While my style has evolved over the years, the one thing that hasn't changed is that I love to to be creative in using "found" things.
Craigslist is my best buddy. Affordability is key. Find and use what you can.
Paint is miraculous
Think outside the box when decorating. I don't even have a lot of skill in fixing things up, but creativity can buy a lot of style. So that about sums it up for me. I hope I can inspire and motivate you to nurture your home and to make it a haven...no matter what your circumstances, funds or skill.
