Livin' on a Shoestring...and Lovin' it! Guest Post on The Shabby Chic Cottage!
Today is an exciting day for me! I am guest posting on Gina Luker's The Shabby Chic Cottage. She has the most wonderful 'cheap' DIY home decor and frugal living blog I have ever seen! Her photos and tutorials are stunning, her decorating style is gorgeous, and her ways to make ends meet are so creative and incredibly cheap that I am continually floored! How she ever comes up with the ideas she does, I will never know! And her house decorated in Country Cottage or Southern Decor style looks exquisite! You would never guess she is a frequenter of dollar stores and Craig's list!
This post, Livin' On a Shoestring and Lovin' It is going to really knock your socks off! I thought I was going to die before I got to share this with you! I am so excited about sharing our story of how we wordked to make ends meet while having a great time. :o) I worked long and hard on it and added lots of great photos! For anyone living on a budget, homeschooling, or raising a family, this will be "Inspiration 101". You are gonna love it!
Here's a little excerpt.....
Living on a Shoe String and Lovin' It!
Gina asked me to tell you a little bit about my family and how we have managed to have such a great time while living on a budget. I love telling our story..because it's a fun one to share! Tim and I have been married 23 years and have five kids, two who are married and have kids of their own, one in college and two in their mid to late teens and are being home schooled by Tim and I.
Living on Less and Enjoying it More!
We both came from a long line of artists, musicians, DIY-ers, urban homesteaders and people who valued family and the great outdoors over anything that money can buy. So when Tim was offered a job with a prestigious company straight out of college and we found out that he would have to work 80 hours a week and sign a $9,000.00 note promising not to leave for the next five years, he promptly told them, "No thanks!"
