Why I started my blog....

Wendy over at Ordinary Miracles of Life started a link party to share why we started blogging...thought I'd join in the fun...

Just over 2 years ago, I decided to start a blog to record the life of Lil D. ALL of my family lives far away....and this was a fun way for them to see what Lil D is up to...so My life as a Thompson started. It's written from Lil D's perspective and I just LOVE it!

As I finally "found myself" in this new role of stay at home mom...I began to take more and more time crafting, cooking, decorating, all the things I loved to do, but didn't have time when I worked...and I wanted to share what I did...but struggled to find how to fit that into the blog I was doing for Lil D...so I decided that I needed a blog for myself...and thus started Mama Thompson.

My blog is just a place that I post the jewelry I make for T's ETC (my etsy shop), the craft projects I make, home projects we are working on, and anything to do with food. I do it to record my life as Mama Thompson...and I am having a blast!

As for those that inspire me...let's just say this post could be super long if I listed them all...so here are a few:

My long time friend Karla at It's the little things...I love her and her home and the husband that helps her...so her blog...well, I love it too!

Juniper at Hope Studios...each friday I so look forward to her "feedback friday" posts, so I can get all riled up and leave ridiculously long comments. Oh...and there have been more then a few tutorials I have done....she's just awesome!

PK at Room Remix...if you don't follow her and all the home/decor inspiration she puts out there you are missin' out...what a giant help she has been to me, as I find my true design style and finally make this home of mine something that I just LOVE.

And Rachelle at Fingerprints on the Fridge what a fantastic blog with such great craft ideas and fun parties...love her.

I am loving this blogging world and all the inspiring people in it!

It really is interesting to read how we all began. We've kind of become our own little bloggy gang :)
