This month, we're doing something a little different. We've gotten together with a few other fabulous podcasters and we've all agreed to take on the same topic, interpret it however we like, and release all of our episodes this week. We are excited to introduce you to The Home Hour - Hosts Graham and Kirsten's show is the Home-Ec class you wish you’d taken! They are two moms trying to create homes that are beautiful, welcoming, and functional ...all while dealing with real life schedules, budgets, and children ! North South Makers - Hosts Charlotte & Erin are design bloggers, friends, and moms. They talk about all things DIY and making… and a little bit of momming. They believe if they can do it, then so can you! and Shailey & Katie The Podcast are Two business-owning, work-from-home moms who are laughing their way through parenthood. We think you're going to be very happy we've introduced you to more podcasts for your binge listening pleasure!
We are really giddy with excitement this week to share our interview with KariAnne Wood of Thistlewood Farm. She is the author of "So Close To Amazing" and her newest book "The DIY Home Planner". We first met her at the Haven Conference in Atlanta, Georgia and she has a way of welcoming everyone into her wonderful world the moment you meet her. Her positivity and kindness are equally contagious and her sense of humor had us laughing throughout. We can't wait to have her tell you all about how she wakes up her house every day, her favorite yard sale treasures and all about her imagination room!
Artist Katie Saro is our guest today and in this conversation, we get pretty deep into the reasons why our homes and personal styles are so essential to our happiness. We talk about finding the balance point between being consumers of pretty things and being mindful of how easy it is to loose ourselves in materialism. We also talk about the value of being bored, online alternatives to Craig's List and eBay, and the best ways to renovate without actually renovating, This interview is packed with so much goodness, we are really happy to be sharing it with you!
Blogger Ashley Goldman is our guest this week. Her blog, The Gold Hive, is the real deal when you're looking for stories behind the step-by-step transformation of a home. We've been following her since her first participation in the One Room Challenge series because we love her style. Since then, we've gotten so much out of how she describes her thought process behind all of her design choices for her beautiful California bungalow. And then she shot to blogger stardom by wowing everyone with her hand-painted mural in the most recent One Room Challenge. As soon as you see it, you'll know what we're talking about! In this interview, we get to know more about Ashley, where her inspiration comes from and why style matters to her.
