I’m Elise Blaha Cripe and I have been keeping a personal & craft blog for almost six years! I blog about all sorts of things, but the main focus is documenting my life & DIY projects. I frequently share tutorials and recipes as well as my triumphs and trials of running a small business. And my small business is a mis-match of different things. I teach online workshops (my most recent was a crash course on web designing for bloggers) and sell paper projects like prints and journals through my online shop.
Lately, I am most inspired by the Pinterest. My husband and I will be moving to a new townhouse soon and I love that I can search things like “mirrored walls” and immediately find inspiration images to see how other people have dealt with similar decorating challenges. Coming up with decorating ideas for our new space is my favorite pastime right now.
This holiday season is a tricky one for me. My husband is currently deployed and not scheduled to return until early spring. A big part of me wants to just rush through the season because it means I’ll be a month closer to having him home. But the more practical part of me knows it’s better to just appreciate what we have. I am looking forward to spending a relaxing few weeks with my parents and younger brother – it will be just like the old days.
