I was thrilled when I recently discovered that someone I know in real life writes a wonderful blog called Hope Studios. She also runs an awesome etsy shop by the same name. That gorgeous family tree down there is hers. Her hand painted Heartsongs frames and plaques tug at my heartstrings.
Jennifer Juniper is the wife of The Hubster's high school friend. Our paths have crossed numerous times over the years, but I had no idea how much we have in common until I started to read her blog. I'll bet that she doesn't remember the time that she gave me great advice when I was a new mom with 1 little boy who wouldn't nap and she was a seasoned mom with 3 young boys. The advice that she gave me (1 hour in the crib. No negotiations) helped me relax and change the way I looked at naptime for my kids.
She's smart and funny and she has talent pouring out of her eyeballs. Her blog is full of great tutorials like:
How to make ribbon flowers
How to make your own high-fashion shoes
A fun branch jewelry display
Make a moss terrarium
Bird's nest decor
Check her out and say "HI!" for me.
Now for some other Linky Love...
