Hi there and welcome to Homespun Girl! My name is Kassie and crafting, making cool stuff and being creative is just my thing. I currently reside in southern WI with my husband and little gremlin (that’s my daughter). I’m an accountant by trade but my projects at home are my passion. Being different and unique is something I love to do, from my personality to decorating our house to making gifts for family and friends, which does drive my husband nuts sometimes. I don’t know how many times I’ve heard, “Why can’t we just be like everybody else and BUY it?!” Because it’s boring, that’s why!! My parents were always very handy with house projects and woodworking so I’m thinking that’s where I got my “handy” nature.
The purpose of my blog is just to share my ideas and connect with others like me. I love surfing Pinterest and getting inspiration from the cool stuff other women post. When it comes to outfits, gift ideas, party themes or household décor, Pinterest is my go to. It’s also introduced me to many blogs ran by women who have the same style and tastes that I do. What’s nice about reading these is getting to know the woman behind the blog and finding out she’s usually just a normal, everyday woman like me. They have families, careers, chores and budgets like normal people do. It’s so much better than reading an article written by an editor behind some big magazine. The more I read other blogs, the more it’s made me want to start one of my own so….here we are!
I’ve started by posting some different things from the past year or so. That way everyone can get to know me and what I do for fun. Just please keep in mind, I’m very new to the whole blogging thing so cut me some slack! 😉 I hope you enjoy my sharing and please don’t hesitate to comment. I’d love to get some feedback on things you liked and things you think I should work on!
