Revisiting Season 1

We are taking this month off here on OMTWI.  Get ready for the auditions the first week of March!  I know that most of y'all have not been around here since the beginning.  I thought it would be fun to go back and revisit some of our past seasons and the fabulous projects we have had!  All of these projects are from week 1 and 2 of season 1.

Guest Judge -- Beth with Stories of A to Z

Voting continues for your favorite furniture project in our finals.  Head on over and vote!

Our guest judge this week is the fabulous Beth from Home Stories A to Z.  Beth's blog is full of fabulous posts.  What to feature with that many goodies?  I thought I would highlight some furniture posts since this furniture week.




We also had Beth answer a few questions for us...

How did you start crafting?
Most of the crafts I make are to complement my home decor. Growing up, I moved around a lot and in each new home I was given the opportunity to decorate my new bedroom. I loved making a space my own and have never outgrown that love!

What's your favorite style (steam punk, modern, shabby, etc)?
I have subscriptions to House Beautiful, Elle Decor, BHG, and Country Living, but I typically get the most excited over my Pottery Barn catalog! I would characterize my style as cottage traditional.

Besides crafting, what are your other hobbies?
Do people actually have time for more than one hobby? Sheesh, I'm just trying to keep up with one :). I would say (in the very few hours) when I'm not blogging, working on a project, or running the house, I am hanging out with my favorite peeps in the entire world...my hubs and two little boys, A and Z.

 Thanks so much Beth for joining us!
