    save your pennies {with guest Loan}

    Hello Amy Cornwell readers!  I am Loan, a wife, mother, sister, novice photographer, wanna-be crafter and a lover of fashion on a budget!  I am thrilled to be a guest blogger for Amy while she is away on a wonderful trip to Kenya. I started my blog as a way to express my budget-friendly fashion tips for busy women juggling a career and a family. But somewhere along the way, it has morphed into a therapeutic outlet to share some of my baking, crafting and weekend shenanigans.  But for this special honor which Amy has granted me, I’m going back to my fashion roots and sharing a little bit of…

    Hi! My name is Elise, and I blog over at Sunday Charm. Thank you, Amy, for letting me take over your lovely blog today! I’m thrilled to be sharing a quick decorating fix with you. Earlier this summer, my husband and I scored the most fantastic dresser off Craigslist. I mean, look at it… We moved this one-of-a-kind piece into our apartment…and then noticed the smell.

I whipped up a little DIY for anyone else struggling with a similar problem, or…

    eleven main street

    Every once in a while I feel the need to share a shop/business with my readers. The one I’m sharing today really excites me because the owner was my childhood best friend, Lindsay. I asked Lindsay a little while back if I could share her super cool business with you all and thankfully she said yes! I decided to do it interview style, although I think that her pictures of the product will speak for themselves! Tell us about yourself: My name is Lindsay Sterling and I’ve been married to my wonderful husband, Matt since 2009.  We have one daughter, Everleigh, that will be 2 this month.  We live in…

    5 Things I Wish I Knew When I Opened Shop (and 5 things I Know Now)

    Alison Little from aPearantly Sew asked me to share with her readers the 5 things I wish I knew when I opened my shop. After I got done with that list (which was harder than I thought it would be), I decided to make a second list of what I want all of you to know if you’re going to open your own shop {{or have your own shop}}. I just wanted to share my heart and my knowledge after being a business owner for the past 9 years! circa 2007 – 4 years after I opened shop – how things change!   5 Things I Wish I Knew When…
